Pro's and Con's To Staying Off Property At Disney World

There are so many choices of where to stay when traveling to Disney World. Orlando, Florida is a huge city with tons of wonderful hotels, motels, resorts and condo's. Disney World has many amazing resorts to choose from too! So what is one to do?!

If you are not sure if staying off property is the best for your family then consider these pro's and con's.

Pro's of staying off property:
  • More space for your family and more privacy than a 1 room hotel
  • Typically more affordable. Many two bedroom condo's are cheaper than a 1 room hotel
  • Full kitchen's are offered in many condo's so you can save money by cooking in
  • Ideal for families with young children who need to nap or go to bed early
  • Great for families with a tight budget

Con's of staying off property:
  • Location is not as close typically as staying on property
  • Need your own transportation to the parks (rental car if you fly)
  • Must pay for parking at the Disney theme parks ($14 per day)
  • Lack of the 'magical Disney feel'

Staying off property is a great way to save money and gain more space. For a larger family this would be ideal. For a smaller family who wants to be as close to the theme parks as possible then I would recommend staying on property. The monorail resorts-Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Contemporary Resorts are all amazing but there is a huge price to pay for that amazing location. Rooms start at $400 per night. You can rent a two bedroom condo for as little as $500 per week in Orlando. If you are not on a tight budget then yes staying on property is the way to go. If you are on a tight budget then consider saving money and staying off property.

There are many off property homes, townhomes and condo's that rent nightly and weekly. To find a great rental visit or simply visit and type in a search for Orlando, Florida.
