Villas Closest to Disney World
We all want to stay in a villa that is as close to Disney World as we can get, but what is the best way to be able to achieve that?
When describing the distances from each villa on the Debbie’s Villas website we actually measure the distance from the community entrance to the car park of the particular theme park we are talking about, giving you an estimate of how long it will take to get there based on average driving times. Obviously these times will vary massively between quiet periods and the peak holiday dates of Easter and Christmas, but at least you will have some genuine idea of how long it will take to reach the theme parks.
Many people who visit Disney World will stay for as long as they can each day, often getting there early in the morning before the park opens (this is called “rope drop”) and staying until the last firework has erupted in the night sky. There are also families who will often spend part of their day at Disney before returning to their villa for a few hours of enjoyment around the private pool, and then maybe heading back to the parks in the evening to experience the firework shows. And of course, there are the families that are somewhere in between both of these and pretty much take each day as it comes.
Whatever you choose to do, and wherever you choose to stay, sometimes staying in a villa close to Disney World is convenient for whatever reason you want it to be. To help you decide here is a quick overview of some of the communities we have rental villas on; they are all around 10 to 20 minutes drive of the Disney parks.
