There are plenty of cheap hotels and places to stay in Orlando if you’re willing to stay off-site of Disney, Universal and the other the big-name resorts.
You’ll find quite a few cheap hotels and places to stay along International Drive, the main road that winds its way through Orlando. And if you’re willing to drive a few minutes further, you can make your budget even happier by finding 3-4 star accommodations for a very reasonable price–and still be just minutes away from Disney World.
One such example is Fantasy World Resort in Kissimmee which is approximately a 20-minute drive to Disney World, Universal and Sea World in Orlando. Fantasy World Resort is a time-share condominium resort made up of townhouse-like condos that sleep six people. Throughout the year many of these condos are available for rent at a weekly rate that is much cheaper than if you were to stay at a hotel.
Each of the two-bedroom, two-bath vacation villas come with a full kitchen, washer and dryer and wireless Internet access.
There are plenty of on-site amenities to enjoy at this family-friendly vacation resort too. They include 2 large pools, 3 hot tubs, winding lazy river, 2 water slides, kids splash pad, fitness centre with sauna and steam room, tennis court, basketball court, shuffleboard, batting cage, mini golf, indoor activity centre and more.
Oh, and about those Orlando resorts,… if you don’t have a car you can take advantage of the scheduled shuttle bus transportation from the resort to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando & Sea World.
