The Best Places To Live Near Disney World (Orlando, FL)

Moving to Orlando for work relocation or just a lifestyle change but not sure where to live? Don’t you worry, we have got you covered! Through this blog, you will be able to find the best places to buy a home in Orlando near Disney World.

Why Florida?

Over the years, Florida has become a people’s favorite state of living in. Around 950 people are seen to move to Florida on an everyday basis.  The state is witness to an unimaginable demand and a rise in the sale of luxurious homes as more and more people are now moving from the northern cities to Florida.

 During the pandemic, people now want to move to more spacious homes and sunnier shores. The sudden increase in the number of new residents of Florida is due to the pandemic taking over and families fleeing trapped cities for short stays. However, these short get-aways then turned into permanent shifting.

Top Places To Live In Orlando

Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, has so many fun-filled adventures to offer that many visitors make visits to it. Rather than trying to enjoy the whole resort in a go, you can take some time and better explore the resort.

If you are a hardcore Disney World fan, then what’s better for you than living in your happiest place on earth. This blog will provide you with the best places to live near Disney World in Orlando. Along with getting the benefits of ownership, you will also get a chance to live that posh central Florida life.

Here are four top areas to live in Orlando if you are planning to relocate your job to Florida. Check out my list of some of the best places to live near Disney.

1.    Celebration (The Community that Disney Founded)

Celebration is a well-mapped out community with a minimal of 8000 population as per the 2010 census. When Disney began the development of this community in 1994, this was regarded as one of the best places to live near Disney.

There are uncountable shops, restaurants, and venues in the downtown areas with live shows every night. The town identifies itself as a resort-style community with safe streets, decent residents, and a happening lifestyle. The cherry on top is that it is just an eleven-minute drive away from Disney Hollywood Studios. 

2.    Winter Park (City of Cultural and Heritage)

Even though Winter Park is about a 45-minute drive away from the entry to Disney Springs, it is still one of the best places to buy a home in Orlando. It is an antique lover’s dream as some of its houses are as old as the 19th century when the community came into being.

Keeping the old architecture alive, the community has winding cobblestone streets with a large canopy formed by the oak and camphor trees in addition to live Spanish moss.   Living in Winter Park also gives you a warm and cozy feel.

 The community has a private liberal arts college, almost eleven outdoor parks along a lake. Residents spend their time enjoying boating, kayaking, shopping, and taking part in the community’s annual arts festival, The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival.

3.    Windermere (Disover the Lake Life)

This community is about a 25-minute drive from the entrance to Magic Kingdom, giving its residents a brilliant view of the park’s fireworks every night. The community is situated between a wide range of lakes providing a tremendous lakeside living.

Many of the housing facilities in these communities are one-floor ranch styled liked most other communities in the area. These towns give you a homier feel, and the residents are happy to live their lives without the shenanigans of the big cities.

4.    Lake Nona (Medical City of Orlando)

Lake Nona is a community made for future generations to live in modern times. It includes all the characteristics of what will be happening now in the world. In this town, opportunities are being created every day for our new generation. Here your aspirations and real-life expectations are combined together, with your imagination being the only barrier.

5.    Horizon West (City of the Villages)

Horizon West is a master-planned community just south area of Winter Garden (Zip Code 34747). What I like about this area is that it’s about 10-15 minutes to Disney and 30-40 minutes to the airport and about 5 minutes to Windermere. This area is about equal distance to pretty much everywhere. Just a few miles down the road you will find the new Clermont Olympus coming to Clermont and also being right in the heart of the Hamlin Town Center (The 3rd largest master-planned communities being developed right now, with over 900 acres of shopping, business development, and living).
