Accomodation Areas

Published by at 1:23 pm under New to Orlando,Orlando Villa Rental

There are 3 main areas for accommodation here they are:

I-Drive:

This road is approx. 11 miles long and the Northern end of it is where most hotels, shopping and restaurants are located. Universal Studios and Sea World are close to I-Drive so if you are a non-driver or considering not having a rental car then this area would suit you best. I-Drive is served by the area’s exclusive and convenient I-RIDE Trolley service you can sit back and ride up and down the International Drive Resort Area. The ticket prices are just a few dollars or you can buy a week pass. Many restaurants all within walking distance of most of the hotels. There are two Outlet malls (Premium Outlets) one at the North End of I-Drive and the other just off I-Drive on Vineland Road and both are served by the I-RIDE Trolley bus.

Kissimmee

Kissimmee is closer to Walt Disney World and has the well-known Hwy 192 the Irlo Bronson Highway, which has lots of restaurants shops and motels. There are also some villa communities here too. The town of Celebration is located here too and was built and originally run by Disney and is a fully functioning town. Old Town is another attraction just off the 192. A lot of the motels have been here a lot of years as this was the first real touristy area built after the completion of WDW. Some of the hotels look a bit tired and in need of some renovation but there are still some nice ones too. The 192 can get busy during rush hour and so travelling to theme parks may take a bit longer.

Davenport:
Hwy 27 is a road that was once orange groves but has now been built up to cater for the ever growing demand for somewhere to stay, these are almost all villa communities peppered along its length Hwy 27 is divided by the Interstate 4 (I-4) which runs from Daytona Beach to Tampa. North of the I-4 is where most communities on the 27 are and the 27 also meets up with the 192. South of the I-4 will take you to Haines City and the last of the villa rental communities. You may hear a lot about distances to the theme parks from some of these locations and yes some are further from Disney but closer to the other parks each place has its own charm and good points and many people return year after year to stay in all the locations.
