Planning a Family Vacation to Disney World Orlando

Disney World getaways are the perfect answer to the family vacation question! Disney World Orlando continues to grow to epic proportions, offering multiple parks, resorts and family fun that make you want another vacation to recover from the one with "the Mouse." With all of the activities available, you won't possibly run out of things to do...because the best of it must be done twice -- just ask the kids! So, your current task: Choosing how "Disney" you want your Orlando vacation to be.

Choosing a Disney World Vacation Package

They come in all shapes and sizes, whether you're planning to spend 2 days at a Disney resort while park hopping, or 2 weeks of an adventure, you'll have no problem finding a vacation to fit your desires. You'll want to carefully consider your vacation budget, and begin to compare and contrast different Disney vacation options. You may find that staying 4 days at a Disney World Orlando resort, while having access to Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom is perfect. (During the summer, you won't want to forget the water parks: Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon). And you may decide that a few days enjoying Orlando and a few enjoying Disney is more your flavor.

Regardless, once you have a look around on the old Internet, you can pinpoint exactly what you want to do, and at that point, you can begin to solidify your Disney World plans. You may find that the only package deals you're interested in are park-hopper passes, or multi-day tickets. Either way, the folks at Disney will love to greet your party with hospitality.

Disney Resorts

Disney Orlando resorts offer a variety of accommodations, amenities and rates. They're sometimes billed as being incredibly expensive, but by no means is that entirely true. They classify their resorts into several categories, from deluxe resort settings to campgrounds. For example, a night at Disney's Polynesian Resort will begin at $340/night, compared to $82/night at the All-Star Sports Resort. There are affordable options for every family, and staying at these resorts will put you at the front door of the famed Disney parks.

Hotels and Motels for Your Disney World Vacation

By no means is it necessary to stay at a Disney World resort to enjoy all the parks have to offer. There are several great and affordable Orlando hotels and motels in the immediate vicinity of the Disney World parks, and throughout the city of Orlando, that will house you a quick hop from Mickey, Minnie and the "Happiest Place on Earth." Once you decide which Disney parks will highlight your family vacation, you'll have no problem finding individual tickets, or family and park-hopper passes available online, perfectly complementing your plans.

Family vacations to Disney World Orlando are memories waiting to unfold. Dig into your available options, and you're sure to discover some vacationing gold.
