    Make a holiday rental home or holiday villa in Orlando, Florida your home away from home

    Things to do on holiday in Orlando, Florida

    Many visitors flock to Orlando villas purely to throw themselves into the magic world of huge theme parks and the universal symbol of Orlando; Disney World. The Disney park, first opened in Orlando in 1971, and has now expanded to include the Orlando Sea World, Orlando Universal Studios and, of course, the Magic Kingdom. Regardless of your age, taking one of the Disney villas for rent in Orlando will certainly leave you with an unrivalled sense of excitement, long before you even arrive in your Orlando villa! Staying outside of the parks is a magnificent way to ensure you see more than simply the inside of Mickey Mouse's empire, including the attractions of Downtown Orlando, International Drive and the beautiful Pacific coast.

    If you manage to drag yourself and/or your family away from the adventures of Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Wet n’ Wild and the Orlando Odditorium (and odd looking collections of the some of the worlds most weird and wonderful exhibits, known as Ripley’s ‘Believe it or not collection’), the draw of Orlando’s International Drive is never far away. International Drive (“I-Drive”) is an unbelievable road, filled to bursting point with attractions, shops, restaurants, and hotels. There are no end of celebrity restaurants, fashion boutiques and luxury department stores along International Drive, as well as some excellent theatres.

    If you are lucky enough to be staying in an Orlando holiday rental during May, the ten day Orlando Fringe Festival will certainly be of interest. With over 500 performances, concerts, parades and productions occurring in almost every space throughout the city, the Fringe Festival turns Orlando into a riot of colour, sound and activity. There is also a ‘Kid’s Fringe Festival’ for children which occurs at the same time. The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival in September and the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival in April are also exceptional events to visit during your Orlando holidays.
