The Areas and Best Locations to Stay in Orlando
Often called the Oasis of Entertainment, it is rather impossible to just pin down one specific area when discussing the areas and best locations to stay in Orlando, Florida. Visitors can take their pick of at least 7 specific locations. And when used as a personal base-of-operations, each of these areas will put you in close proximity to a variety of recreational spots, theme parks and lodging options that ensures your stay or vacation to Orlando, Florida will be fun and memorable.

Lake Buena Vista: This is the largest and newest location for places to stay in Orlando County and is professionally managed by the Walt Disney Corporation. A wide range of hotels that are generally affiliated with national or regional hotel chains are the most wide-spread accommodation options of vacationers. Lake Buena Vista is one of the areas and best locations to stay in Orlando simply because it is located near Walt Disney World in addition to the areas close proximity to great shopping and dining.

Disney World's Resort Properties: For the true Disney fan or the family that enjoys the Magic Kingdom so much they want to own property right in or near the park, this is the place for you! For vacationers, there is the choice of staying in one of the many hotels within the confines of the Magic Kingdom. Staying here, visitors will never be far from the fun thanks to free shuttle bus service.

Kissimmee area: The town of Kissimmee is popular not only for its relaxed atmosphere but also for its historical importance (one of Florida's oldest towns) and great leisure activities like its championship golf courses and family activity centers. Also, finding accommodation options here should not be a problem.

Universal Studios Area: This area is rich in attractions but not nearly as rich in lodging options. Vacationers should be prepared to spend as there some truly high-priced hotels in this neck of the woods. Other accommodation options are just as expensive but the advantage is that you get to stay near a majority of family-attractions.

Sea World (International Drive) Area: The International Drive area near Sea World is a favourite of many families – especially those with young kids. Affordable lodging options can be found a little bit off the beaten path.

Orlando County Convention Center Area: Almost in Sea World's backyard, the Convention Center area is minutes away from the Magic Kingdom and is popular for that reason alone. Great shopping is another attraction as there are many "Outlet" malls nearby.
Remember, location is everything and the greater Orlando area offers areas that allow for every taste and budget.
