A reminder there's more to Disney World than theme park rides and cartoon characters, this is like the nightlife quarter of any big city – only with that special, family-friendly Disney glow. Areas like the Marketplace and West Side offer blues bars, live shows, cinemas, and bars. And there's great food too, whether you fancy hearty Deep South grub or the full fine dining experience.
One of Florida's most popular attractions, SeaWorld Orlando is most famous for the spectacular acrobatics performed by killer whales. You can also see stingrays, dolphins and a host of other beautiful sea creatures up close, catch one of the extravagant live shows, or hop on one of the thrilling rollercoasters. The Orange County Convention Center, one of the biggest in the country, is just a short stroll away.
International Drive is the buzzing tourist strip of Orlando – along it you'll find attractions like the Wet 'n Wild water park, SeaWorld Orlando and, most famously, Universal Orlando. This is your chance to take the starring role in blockbuster movies, thanks to fully immersive 3D rides and film-themed rollercoasters. Afterwards, grab great food or go dancing in the CityWalk entertainment complex, with its array of bars and clubs.
One of the most spectacular resorts in all the United States, Walt Disney World brings out everyone's inner child. Take a walk down picturesque Main Street USA towards the Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom, or explore the scientific wonders of futuristic Epcot, known for the iconic, golf ball-like Spaceship Earth. Enjoy wildlife in the Animal Kingdom and thrilling waterslides in Typhoon Lagoon – it's an adventure from beginning to end.

I was there for the PGA Merchandise Show and the location of the hotel is in close vicinity to the Convention Centre. The room itself is great and the wifi is strong enough to continue on your business at the room. The problem i had was the hot water out the shower was not satisfying, i had to bath everyday because the shower water was too cold, it is the middle of winter so hot showers are in order. other than this it is great
"Very pleasantly surprised!"

I have nothing negative to say about my experience with Avanti - the hotel & facilities are excellent, rooms are spacious & well maintained, the pool area is gorgeous and the staff are very friendly! Excellent value for money!

A very nice place to stay. 24/7 wi-fi which was not the case at a very expensive hotel we stayed at the week before! Accommodating staff and more than enough for the price. I suggest you sometimes open the doors to the outside to flush the corridors with fresh air and please tell your guest about the Fresh Tomato Salad restaurant just across the street. I will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
