Things to Consider About Staying Off-Site for Your Disney World Vacation
You have lots of options to rent a big condo or house and stay with your traveling companions all in one place.
You’ll have to work out transportation to the Disney parks. Make sure you know how long it will take to get from where you’re staying to the park gate.
Things to Consider About Staying On-Site for Your Disney World Vacation
There are over 25 Disney hotel properties at Disney World. Guests staying at Disney resorts get special park access and advantages when making dining and FastPass+ reservations.
Disney World resorts fall into three categories: Value, Moderate, and Deluxe
All of the Disney World resorts, regardless of category, have excellent theming.

Where to Get More Information About Where to Stay at Disney World and in Orlando
I highly recommend you get a copy of The Unofficial Guide to Disney World. This book has tons of details about both on-site and off-site hotels.
If this all seems super-overwhelming, consider getting a travel agent to help you book this vacation. Find someone who specializes in Disney World vacations.
