Lake Buena Vista vacation rentals

Lots to do in Lake Buena Vista

Lake Buena Vista might mean 'beautiful lake view' but in this Florida city, most eyes are cast in the direction of the dreamy spires of the Magic Kingdom. It's all about Disney World here, which sprawls magnificently a few minutes' walk to the west. With Lake Buena Vista vacation rentals going big on the family angle, you'll be spoilt for choice. Affordable apartments, astounding condos, and luxurious villas clamor for your attention among manicured lawns and spectacular pools. But even if Disney remains your main focus, don't forget this is the "capital of theme parks." Don't miss Universal's thrills or SeaWorld's wonders.

Lapping up the fun at Lake Buena Vista

Theme-park family fun is the name of the game for those staying in Lake Buena Vista vacation rentals. There's something for all the family here: fairy-tale magic and cute Disney characters for the youngest; barrel rolls and butterflies for the older kids on the wilder rides. Adults don't have to miss out either: there are plenty of nearby malls for shopping, and world-class golfing greens for teeing-off on. You could catch a lavish evening show in one of the many hotels, or tuck in to sumptuous dining at top-rated Orlando restaurants.

Unmissable sights in Lake Buena Vista

If Lake Buena Vista vacation rentals are on your mind, then it's a fair guess Disney World is the reason why. For those with little ones, the Magic Kingdom guarantees wide-eyed wonder and wows a-plenty. There's so much here that's unmissable, starting with Universal Studios. Here, the rides will put you center-screen in the thrilling world of the movies. A different kind of thrill is to be had at the NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, which showcases real-life space adventures through the ages. For animal lovers, the watery fun of Seaworld is not to be missed.

Making the most of Lake Buena Vista's magic

Lake Buena Vista weather is rarely anything other than warm and humid. This is Florida, after all, but the temperatures and crowds are definitely at their peak in the summer vacation months. Late spring or winter are good times to come when the heat is milder and the queues shorter. Don't leave it too late in the winter season, though, or you'll bump into the run up to Christmas. This is when the crowds increase, as families head south to make their seasonal wishes come true.

Lake Buena Vista—views into Florida's wildlife

Lake Buena Vista itself is a wonderfully sculpted landscape that manages to blend colorful condos and bright-lit hotels with glittering lakes and languid canals. If you want to get up close to the wild splendor of the oceans, you couldn't be better placed. Seaworld Orlando lets you awe at orcas, dance with dolphins, and waddle among the penguins. But don't forget the Florida wildlife to be found outside the parks! Natural wonders such as the gentle manatee, the steel-eyed alligator, or the endless sweep of the Everglades are just a car trip away.
