Walt Disney World Orlando; A Disney Weekend Getaway | Travel & Vacation Tips & Resources

Walt Disney World Orlando

A weekend family getaway to Orlando doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Airfares are very affordable right now and you can easily book flights and hotel accommodations either online or through your travel agent.

Depending upon where you decide to stay (either close to the park or further away), you can expect to pay anywhere from $316.00 to $583.00 per person. This is not only an affordable weekend getaway, but an exciting one for the entire family.

For example, for $316.00, you can stay at the Legacy Grand Hotel and Suites, only 3.7 miles southeast of Orlando. Or you can stay at the Hilton Resort at Walt Disney World for $413.00 located in Lake Buena Vista.

The benefit of staying as close as you can to the theme park is that you will not have to drive a great distance to and from the Magic Kingdom and waste precious time. In addition, by planning the weekend getaway beforehand, you will be able to select those areas in the park that are on the top of the list or, should we say, the kids’ list.

Given the current economy, it may not be possible to afford to stay on site in Disney World. Staying on site does have an advantage in that most hotels offer a free shuttle bus and/or rail service to the theme park. In addition, guests who stay at the on-site hotels are allowed to enter the park before guests who are staying at other properties further away.

Among the many recommendations in selecting hotel properties on site is to choose the Best Western. It is not only affordable, but offers a variety of amenities.

While Epcot Center, Universal Studios, and Sea World are an absolute joy to visit, a weekend doesn’t give you much time to visit all of these nearby attractions.

Thus, you may want to purchase the theme park tickets when you book your package. This will reduce the need to wait on lines and allow your family to go directly to the park upon arrival in Orlando.

In addition, Jet Blue is offering low fares to Orlando. If you want to lock in the cheap rates, now is the time to book your weekend getaway to Orlando. You can also check online or call your travel agent for more details.

    I stayed at the Windsor Hills Resort with my family for a couple of weeks for a little over $1000 split down the middle with my parents. So it really only cost me a little over $500. It’s just 2-3 miles away from Disney. Really nice resort and amenities.
