There’s a bewildering choice of family-friendly accommodation options in Orlando, from 400+ hotels to a number of campsites. If you’re focused on a particular themepark, it can make a lot of sense to stay at one of their on-site hotels: as well as special deals on tickets, you generally get early access to the rides. You’re also either in the heart of the action or within easy reach of the park by complimentary shuttle, and some themepark hotels also offer complimentary airport pick-up and drop-off.
Alternatively, many families visiting Orlando opt for an air-conditioned villa with a private pool, cable TV and a massive kitchen. Many are on quiet private estates just a five-minute drive from the themeparks, and prices start from about £600/wk for a villa sleeping four.
