Live Near Disneyworld!
Everybody loves Central Florida for the temperate climate, the sun, the sea and the world class theme parks that have turned Orlando into one of the top tourist destinations in the world. In 2014, Orlando had more than 62 million visitors. That set a record and placed the city near the top of the global tourism list.
According to a statement issued in April of 2015, Visit Orlando's president and CEO George Aguel called the new numbers a "historic milestone." Aguel attributed the growth to Universal Orlando's new Diagon Alley (where visitors can walk through The Wizarding World of Harry Potter) and Walt Disney World's latest addition, New Fantasyland. Seaworld is also a big draw as well as the newer entertainment center, The Holy Land Experience.
Buying a condo near Disney World in Orlando makes it more affordable to stay longer or visit more often than would be feasible at a hotel. In some cases it is possible to lease out your condo when you're not using it, to tourists who want more than just a room and bath during their stay. Vacation rentals are often handled by on-site community management.
If you're looking for a resort atmosphere with luxury accommodations, lots of amenities and close proximity to the theme parks, there are three main resort developments we think stand above the rest for quality, ambiance and close proximity to the theme parks: Worldquest, Blue Heron and Lake Buena Vista.
Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa features all en-suite bedrooms and stands out as the place where there's a pirate ship in the pool! This festive, full-service community has the most amenities including a luxury spa with massage, hair and nail professionals, a poolside bar and grill and an Irish pub. The condos here are 1-4 bedroom suites - the largest in this luxury class - with up to 2,170 square feet.
The Blue Heron Beach Resort is a high-rise condo/hotel situated on the shores of Lake Bryan just one mile from Disneyworld and about 8 miles from Universal Orlando. Like Worldquest, these condos feature all en-suite bedrooms, private balconies, top quality interior finish and lots of amenities including a pool, spa, business center. This one has a fitness center and is adjacent to a miniature golf course.
Worldquest Resort is a four-star mid-rise condo/hotel with all en-suite rooms and an upscale Mediterranean theme. It is located 2 miles from Disneyworld and offers a complimentary shuttle there. Universal Orlando is just 10 miles away. Concierge and housekeeping services are available. This well-maintained property is situated on park-like grounds with a large outdoor pool, free WiFi in the common areas and a 24 hour on-site pantry/convenience store.
These Orlando condos near Disneyworld have fairly hefty HOA fees but their ability to place your condo in the rental pool and manage the property while you're not there more than defray the costs. There are several other options available. Take a look around our website and contact me for more choices.
