Whatever time of year you choose to enjoy your vacation in Orlando, you’ll find Disney World a truly unforgettable experience.
Dining at Disney World
When it comes to eating at Disney World, there’s a wealth of choice available. There are plenty of buffet-style restaurants in all the Disney theme parks, plus more casual dining options, such as cafes, fast-food outlets and food trucks. Disney World often hosts a range of dinner shows and dining events. For full details about what’s on when you’re staying at one of our vacation rentals in Orlando, simply visit the official Disney site.
Here’s a few great tips to get the best from your Disney World experience:
Be prepared for walking. The Disney attractions are big, and you’ll be on your feet a lot!
Aim for mid-week for the Magic Kingdom. Saturdays can be particularly busy.
If you want to go to a restaurant for a special occasion. especially if you’re traveling as a big group, make sure you book beforehand.
Rather than queuing for hours to meet a Disney character. go to a character meal instead. You can sit down and relax, and your children can meet the characters without waiting ages to do so.
If you’ve seen the parades already, use parade times to get on those rides – queues are always shorter at these times!
The Best Rides at Disney World
Not sure which ride to head to first? Here’s a quick guide to our personal favorites.
Splash Mountain. It’s one of Disney’s most famous rides, and deservedly so! It’s not one of the most terrifying, but this log-flume meets animatronics ride is always worth experiencing.

Nothing like I ever experienced before!
This property was absolutely gorgeous! Everything was perfect and clean. We enjoyed the house so much that we didn’t even bother to go to the water park in the community. The backyard and pool is breathtaking! I will definitely book again in the future.

We had a great time. The house is beautiful with everything we needed for our stay. I only recommend putting a blind in the front door for privacy.
This property was everything we wanted...and more! The home was very clean. We enjoyed the pool, home theater, and game room! We also enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed the water park and the soccer field every day. The kids didn’t want to leave. We will definitely be back.

We had an amazing time at this property. I was very happy with the cleanliness of the house. Every room was very well equipped with pillows and blankets. The pool was amazing!! The kitchen had more than enough glasses and plates for all 8 of us. We had an issue with the fridge ice maker which was fixed right away after I called the number provided . Internet and cable worked great! Overall, we had a great time and it exceeded our expectations!

It was a fun time for all ages. Our family just wanted to have a getaway vacation this summer, especially during these trying times. The Property Manager was fabulous! Very quick responses, via email, whenever I had a question. Thanks for everything!!

We enjoyed our stay! The check-in process was excellent. The property was clean. It could use a little dusting in hidden spaces. The resort pool was a gem! We had one issue with oven- circuit kept overheating and oven would shut down but maintenance did come the same night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful home with spacious, clean rooms. It was a nice place to come home to after a day at the park. Check-in and out was a breeze! The Game Room is a nice bonus. Spa and pool are lovely.

Our second time staying. Great pool, with distance from the neighbours. When night comes the kids tend to wander up to the impressive theater room giving the adults some down time to relax and chat in the comfortable pool side furniture. Excellent all around.
