Staying at Hotels Near Disney World
If you want to stay at a hotel near Disney World you have three different
areas to choose from; each has a distinct flavor and advantages that make
it worth considering:
- Hotels in the Kissimmee(or HWY192) area
- Hotels in the Lake Buena Vista area
- Hotels located on Disney World property
Hotels in the Kissimmee Area
Since the oldest Disney World Main gate entrance is the one south of Walt
Disney World on HWY 192, this was an extremely popular location for hotels.
Since this is the oldest entrance, many of the hotels located here are older
as well. Thankfully, many of the national chains have been moving back into
this area and are tearing down or totally renovating hotels in the Kissimmee
area. If you are looking for a great vacation value, where price meets quality,
then Kissimmee hotels will offer you a great stay.
Hotels in the Lake Buena Vista Area
Located on the North side of Disney World, this area filled with hotels near
Disney World is the latest to be developed. The Lake Buena Vista area hotels
are much newer than many of the hotels on HWY 192—and the nightly rates
are a little higher. You can expect to find great shopping and dining in the
Lake Buena Vista area.

inside Disney World offer you and your family easy access to the Disney
theme parks, since most offer free shuttle service every thirty minutes. You’ll
get lots of great perks from being so close to Disney, but you should expect
to pay a little more to stay inside of Disney World. Need more information
about the perks of staying onsite? Here’s a great article about the
and cons of staying at a non-Disney owned hotel.
