Editor’s Note: Travel might be complicated right now, but use our inspirational trip ideas to plan ahead for your next bucket list adventure.
Home to more than a dozen theme parks and countless other attractions, Orlando is packed with fun things to do. Visit Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Walt Disney World, check out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, or just hang out by the pool — there are so many ways to spend your vacation in Central Florida. But first, you’ll need to find the perfect place to stay, and that means choosing between Orlando vacation rentals and hotels — a choice that can be tough given the wealth of options available.
While there’s no shortage of hotels in the area, opting for one of the many well-appointed Orlando vacation home rentals might be best. These Orlando Airbnbs offer plenty of space to spread out, and some even have their own private pools. If you’re planning to visit the theme parks during your vacation, renting a home has a lot of perks. You could book a huge home with six or more bedrooms to fit the whole extended family under one roof, or choose accommodations with a private hot tub so you can take a relaxing soak after a long day of trekking through Disney World. And the magic doesn’t have to end when you leave the theme parks every day — some homes even have specially themed rooms (like this Star Wars-inspired Airbnb) that every Disney fan will love.
