Disney’s property is situated in the southwest portion of Orlando. Portions of Disney property are bordered by other cities, such as Kissimmee. East of Disney is Orlando International Airport, while the land that’s situated off to the west is largely undeveloped.
Some of the closest neighborhoods to Disney include:
- Windsor at Westside
- Solara resort
- Champions Gate
Disney’s property is fairly close to Route 4, so a home situated north of Disney but close to Route 4 would have fairly easy access to the theme parks. These homes tend to have a higher ROI than what you would see with a home located further from the highway because they’re more desirable among Disney-bound tourists who are seeking convenience.
Orlando is a sprawling city, covering more than 110 square miles. A whopping 40 square miles are owned by Walt Disney World, which acquired the property decades ago when Central Florida was virtually undeveloped. In fact, to provide a bit of perspective, Disney’s property is the same size as the entire city of San Francisco!
