You may have heard of a few horror stories when it comes to the costs involved in visiting Disney. Yet a dream trip to Orlando can be affordable.
There are a variety of fantastic bargains on offer for Orlando villas, with many affordable resorts across the entire Orlando area. It usually just means knowing where to look, planning ahead and traveling at cheaper times to attain the very best deals. Here are a few tips to help you keep the costs down.
Check on a Variety of Properties
Every budget is catered for when it comes to Orlando. And just because you book your accommodation with a place that costs less, doesn’t always mean you will be enjoying accommodation that is less lavish.
There is always the option of checking into one of the cheap motels, yet the better deals are usually found at Orlando’s townhouses, condos, and villas. If you are traveling with your family or in a big group, you can achieve attractive savings when you share accommodation, and you can enjoy the benefits of additional extras such as your own private pool and kitchen.
Choose from The Right Resorts
More affordable Orlando resorts really do exist, which offer you the basic facilities such as casual restaurants and shared pools. Yet even premium resorts offer fantastic deals.
For example, Reunion Resort which is private and gated offers a host of fun and entertaining facilities which includes its very own water-park. It is also only 6-miles away from Disney World. This gated resort also offers 3 PGA Tour golf-courses and accommodation for all types of budgets.
A 4-bedroom villa in this resort which accommodates 10 people, could cost you only $2950 for a 2-week stay. This villa offers its own game room, private pool and lounge area that is tastefully furnished.
It is easy for many people to make the mistake of just accepting the prices for a vacation when booking that dream trip. Yet if you are willing to take the analytical approach you can end up saving a lot of money. Planning how you will fill up the “dull” days between wallet-draining Legoland and Disney World is a task on its own. It all begins with the resort you choose in Orlando.
The condos offer a community feel, along with great privacy levels which are complemented with various on-site amenities. In most cases, you will be able to enjoy cafes, water parks, lazy rivers, clubhouses and more. This can become a lifesaver when your children need that extra entertainment.
Storey Lake Resort offers all these amenities and more and the accommodation itself offers its own set of benefits. With large bedrooms, open-plan dining and living areas, along with your own private terrace, this accommodation is fantastic for value and easy on your pocket.
Take A Homely Approach with a Townhouse
A step up from condos, yet cheaper than a villa, the townhouses offer private pools and typically offer parking directly outside your accommodation. These are properties usually positioned in clusters, which are bonded together, which makes up a gated and private community where you are able to experience the lifestyle of Orlando natives.
If you enjoy cooking up culinary meals, these townhouses typically come with a fully-equipped and spacious kitchen which will allow you to create your favorite dishes. In general, a TV is provided in the living room, which allows you and your guests to relax while enjoying that “home away from home” feeling.
Compass Bay Resort is only 5 miles from Disney and offers shopping malls, supermarkets, Universal Studios, and golf courses all in a 12-mile reach. Available from an impressive $100 a night you can book our Compass Bay townhouses online today.
It may seem obvious, yet it is possible to make significant savings when you decide to book your vacation outside of the peak periods.
The school breaks are always busier and more expensive. If you are looking for a more affordable trip, avoid the Summer Break, Easter, Spring Break and late December, particularly around these holidays.
The weather is another factor that you need to take into account before you book your trip to Florida. While the average temperatures will peak from June through to August, it does take a few months before the colder weather sets in. In September the average temperatures are still 27C (81F) and hold steady at 24C (75F) throughout October. Here is a guide with more information on the better times to plan your trip.
Book in Advance
If you have plans to only visit Orlando in the next year or even two, make sure you book now which means you can probably secure the current prices. This is a fantastic way to save, considering how most rental rates will go up every year.
A few of our properties are also available with a very low deposit at Encore Resort. You can book a stunning home for your next vacation for a deposit of only $300.
