Walt Disney World Holidays, Florida
Explore the magic of Walt Disney World Florida from your own Disney holiday home
Having opened in 1971 as the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World Florida has gone from strength to strength, offering visitors from around the world the chance to enjoy the famous, and wonderful Disney magic. The endless attractions of Disney World are well known, but to get the absolute maximum out of both the Walt Disney resort and the marvels of the rest of Florida, a private Disney holiday home in the Orlando area is the best solution.
The Disney resort in Florida is huge, consisting of four separately themed parks in the same location, meaning that you will never be able to see all that Disney World has to offer in a single visit to a Disney holiday home. Don't worry though, if you visit a Disney World holiday home once, you will almost certainly be tempted into coming again! The excitement of your children about taking a Disney holiday will soon rub off on you too! Spread across four parks, (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney-MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom), there is far more to a Disney World holiday than cartoon characters and roller coasters (if more was needed), including two water parks, six golf courses and two shopping complexes to pick out just a few of the attractions at the Florida Disney resort.
The huge advantage of taking a Disney World holiday home or Disney villa outside of the park is the absolute freedom you get. There is so much to see in Florida and Orlando, from the stunning beaches to the world class golf courses, top rate tourist attractions to the pristine nature of the Everglades. Your children will be wonderfully happy too, as taking a Disney holiday home outside the park means you can enjoy the wonders of Sea World and Universal Studios too.
Disney ticketing is a mine field, but one thing is for sure; you should buy your tickets before you arrive at your Disney holiday home as you will have to fork out more for a Walt Disney World ticket on the day and the queues can be excruciating. There are a huge range of ticketing options, but as a general rule, tickets work on a 'one person, one park per day' rule. Popping in and out of the park is not a problem, meaning you can explore Disney Magic in the morning, head back to your Disney holiday home for lunch and saunter back into the park for some extra afternoon fun. There are ticketing options for almost every eventuality, so if you plan well ahead, you can buy a tailor made ticket very cheaply.
Disney World Florida even has adult entertainment covered. Walt Disney's Pleasure Island is a haven for adults after a long day in the park, with seven themed clubs open until 2am. Accessible from all over the Walt Disney World Resort, Pleasure Island is free to enter before 7pm, with club entry tickets available from vendors throughout the six acre site. You can either buy an entry ticket to a single club or the whole lot, even on special occasions like St Patrick's Day and New Years Eve. Club themes in Pleasure Island include comedy, rock n'roll, Jazz, dance and 70's dance, and all shows last around half an hour allowing guests to 'club hop'. The addition of Pleasure Island has made the Disney holidays a complete family adventure, and there are a whole range of child care facilities and kid's clubs available to look after your children as you take a well deserved night off.
