Orlando used to be like any other central Florida destination. Visitors came for the mild climate, endless sunshine and Southern hospitality. But all that changed in 1971 when Walt Disney opened Walt Disney World — what is now the largest and most visited theme park on the planet. Today, Orlando, Florida, has more theme parks and entertainment options than anywhere else in the world. That means a lot of annual visitors – nearly 48 million. And with all of those tourists comes a wide variety of Orlando hotel specials. For the best hotel discounts in Orlando, be sure to book through the AARP® Travel Center powered by Expedia®. You’ll get cheap hotel deals or your AARP hotel discount, whichever is better. Plus, when you book your hotel, airfare and car rental together, you’ll save even more.
While Orlando sees its fair share of business travelers and convention business, the city is first and foremost a family destination. Therefore, many Orlando hotels cater to families … and their budgets. When planning a trip to Orlando, many visitors search for hotel deals near Orlando theme parks — like Disney World, Sea World Orlando and the Universal Orlando Resort. Other options for cheap hotels in Orlando include hotels in Kissimmee and downtown Orlando. No matter what location you choose, Orlando offers a variety of lodging options, from budget-friendly hotels to suite hotels to luxury resorts with amenities like spas, massive pool complexes and golf courses.
You can’t have a discussion about where to stay in Orlando without first talking about hotels near Disney World. The first and foremost park in the Orlando area, Disney World includes four theme parks, two water parks and 23 Disney-owned themed hotels.

All in all, visitors have a range of options and price points when choosing a hotel near Disney World — from five-star resorts to moderately priced hotels. Best of all, the magic of Disney is always just a short drive, bus ride or boat ride away.
