Get happy in Disney World, Orlando

The Walt Disney World Resort proudly claims to be the happiest place on earth, and that’s no idle chatter—since the Magic Kingdom first opened its doors in 1971, this pioneering entertainment complex has been dazzling young and old alike. Orlando’s star attraction has continued to expand in the years since, and today comprises 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, and several golf courses, among other assets. Disney World vacation rentals place these family favorites right on your doorstep, combining the personal touches and home comforts you’re after with a little sprinkling of Disney magic.


Disney World, Orlando makes a splash

Water babies and adrenaline junkies need look no further than Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon for their next pulse-pounding adventure. The man-made peak of Mount Mayday is the launch pad for a number of heart-stopping slides—you can go it alone or race your friends to the bottom for some added competition. The park also boasts one of the world’s largest wave pools, and has recently added white-water rapids to its extensive list of amusements, so there’s not a dull moment in sight. Younger kids can venture deep into the heart of the mountain and through cascading waterfalls on an inner-tube journey along Castaway Creek.


Disney World’s got a sunny disposition

It should be no surprise that Orlando’s humid subtropical climate keeps things warm and bright throughout the year; Florida is the Sunshine State after all. This means that vacation rentals near Disney World are perennially in demand, so booking early is encouraged. The coolest month is January, with temperatures still averaging at around 59°F, while July sees the mercury soar to the low 80s. Disney World vacation rentals with outdoor pools or air conditioning are especially popular during these peak months. Quick rain showers are common in the summer months, but are soon replaced by the state’s world-famous golden rays.

Natural features

Disney World’s wild wonders

Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a 500-acre zoological theme park that houses the iconic Tree of Life, is a short walk from most Disney World vacation rentals and should be on any nature lover’s to-do list. The center’s diverse zones each showcase the distinct ecology of the world’s different regions—that means you can spot giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, and ostriches on a safari ride through the African plains, or trek through lush jungles to catch a peek of Bengal tigers, Komodo dragons, and over 50 species of Asian birds, all under the same roof.
