Why Owning a Vacation Home Near Walt Disney World Resort is Awesome!
For travelers from around the world, taking the family to Orlando and going to Walt Disney World Resort is the definition of a “Dream Vacation.” On Disney property alone, there is so much to do that you could spend a week there and still not experience everything there is to do. In addition to the four major theme parks – Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios – vacationing families can enjoy two water parks, shopping and dining at Disney Springs and Disney’s Boardwalk, and a variety of sports activities at ESPN Wide World of Sports.
You can also find a ton of fun places to go outside Disney property. Universal Orlando Resort is only about a half hour drive from Walt Disney World and features two spectacular theme parks – Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida, where you’ll find the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Visitors to the area also enjoy experiencing attractions like SeaWorld Orlando, International Drive, Gatorland and so much more!
As if that weren’t enough, all of these experiences can be found in an area that has outstanding weather and sunshine throughout most of the year, which is why U.S. News & World Report ranks Orlando as the #1 Family Vacation Destination in the United States.
For people who are in the market for a vacation home, being located near Disney clearly adds value, whether you’re planning to offer it as a vacation rental, use it for your own personal use, or a combination of the two. If you plan to offer your vacation home to families traveling to Orlando, the demand will probably be high, which allows you to charge higher rates. This will be especially true during peak travel periods like holidays and throughout the summer months.
It’s important to note, however, that renting your vacation home means you have to keep it attractive and appealing, both inside and out, at all times. So it’s a good idea to put some time and resources into how you decorate your house, kitchen appliances, furniture and wall décor. Attractive landscaping is also a good idea. This will ensure that your guests enjoy staying in your vacation home and might even refer other renters to you.
If you plan to keep it for your personal use, a huge benefit is that you can travel to Orlando with a lot less planning and even take a short trip when your schedule suddenly becomes free. Or, you can keep an eye on air fares and travel if you see a special that you just can’t pass up. In fact, a lot of people who own vacation homes in the area leave clothes there so they don’t have to pack as much when they travel.
Either way, owning a vacation home near Disney comes with plenty of benefits. It’s a deeded property so it will most likely keep its value and possibly even appreciate, depending on the housing market. Also, you own it, so you could live there after you retire. You can even give stays at your vacation home to family and friends as a gift for holidays, weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and birthdays.
So if you’re planning to purchase a vacation home in the Disney area, there are a lot of advantages you can enjoy, so have fun with it! And if you want to turn your vacation home into a breathtaking dream home, please give us a call at 863-424-8476 and let’s talk!
