Our favorite hotels near the Florida theme parks
When my family visits the Orlando area for a getaway to the theme parks, we have our favorite hotels we try to stay in. When we go to Walt Disney World, we like staying in one of the resorts there if we can. (I hope to eventually stay in all of the Disney resorts, and I’ve been to several so far!) But other times my family likes trying out a different place.
WorldQuest quickly became our favorite place after staying there for the first time last summer when we happened upon it during an online search. We stayed at WorldQuest with friends and were wowed by how nice it is.
WorldQuest offer two- and three-bedroom condos just down the street from World Drive — very close to Epcot. (Think “next door to Nickelodeon Suites Resort,” if you’ve stayed there and know its location — another really fun resort to stay in!) So WorldQuest has a great location. But mostly we love it because we get lots of room for the same price as a regular hotel. Traveling with little kids, it’s hard to put them to bed and get yourself ready for the next day if their bed is right next to yours! At WorldQuest, my husband and I can put the kids to bed in their room(s), then unwind a little, set out clothes for the next day, watch a movie, etc. without disturbing the kids.
Each condo opens to the outside and has a master suite with a king-sized bed and bathroom.
Having a real kitchen is great for keeping drinks and medicines cold, plus you can cook meals there if you want.
Each room has a TV, and so does the spacious living area, which includes a full dining table.
If you want to swim and get some sunshine, there’s a large pool and patio area.
Check-in and check-out are easy, and every time my family has stayed at WorldQuest, we have had no problems during our stay.
Recently, my family discovered Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. It’s right across the street from SeaWorld — you can even walk. We stayed in a regular hotel room here, which had a balcony facing the atrium.
The atrium beyond the lobby has everything!
My family loved the sea-themed elements that seemed to be everywhere.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to try out the pool area, but we sure wish we could have! There are both a beautiful, classic pool and a children’s water play area called R Aqua Zone that would rival many water parks.
There are sooo many wonderful resorts in the Orlando area, at various price levels. WorldQuest and Renaissance have become favorites of our family — we hope to find even more in the future.
