If you decide on a hotel, you will need to search for hotels near to the attractions you will be visiting most. If you're going to be spending a lot of time at Disney world, you need to look at hotels in the Lake Buena Vista area. There's also some great non-disney hotels in Downtown Disney, or you might opt for a Walt Disney World hotel.
