Deciding what Orlando hotel or resort to stay at that best accommodates you and your family’s needs is an undeniably important decision when planning a vacation. And when you’re looking to travel to the #1 family vacation destination in the country, making that choice between hundreds of places to stay for the right price can get tricky. So, does staying on-property at Westgate Orlando carry a lot of vacation value?

Short answer: absolutely.

When everything you need is in one location, it not only cuts travel time and expenses, but simplifies things, making more room for fun and less for headaches. Your time is precious, and the reality is, the more time there is to vacation, the better. We happen to take those words at face value, providing guests an experience on-property that you won’t find off.
