My Best Tips and Tricks as a Disney Expert #1
(My first tip may appear rooted in bias, but I lived by it for years, and it is what got me into my Florida vacation rentals in the first place.)
Ignore the advice of the vast majority of travel writers who write about a trip to Disney World as meaning staying on Disney property in a Disney resort.
Such stories are usually written by writers who were given a free trip to Disney World to promote Disney’s own offerings!
There are 35,000 vacation rentals in the area – where for far less than the cost of the cheapest Disney hotel room that sleeps four people, a family can stay in a four-bedroom two-bathroom home with a full kitchen, games area, and its own private pool; featuring five TV’s, room to stretch out and relax, parking at the door, and access to the theme parks as fast or faster than those staying on property. (Ask me why if you’re interested.)
Vacation Rentals in the Disney World area are a professional, fully licensed industry.
