RV Rental Orlando for a travel dream come true

When you wish upon a star, Orlando is where you wake up. In fact, 52 million tourists wake up here every year. Remarkably close to Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and all the other fantastical theme parks, it is a squeal-inducing vacation to take with the kids. Yet there’s more to this great city than heart-stopping rides. Orlando is a city of art and fine dining and all-season golf courses. So prep up and pick one from Orlando Motorhome Rentals and head to the destination where dreams come true.

Orlando RV rentals do not only cater to campers within Florida. If you have ample time and want to extend your USA RV rental tour, you could drive to Atlanta, Dallas or Houston using the same motorhome rental.


The environment

You’ll find motorhome rentals a necessity once you touchdown Orlando. The city is flat and covered in wetlands, swamps and hundreds of lakes. Lake Apopka is the largest. Many of the lakes are former sinkholes and new ones are frequent. Most people who visit Orlando never come anywhere near Orlando city. They head straight out to the world of magic. Downtown though, everyone drives. The city is spread out and it’s not safe to walk the busy streets. It’s an expensive and frustrating city to get around for both locals and tourists. Interstate 4 is an east-west highway, yet it actually runs north-south, which can be very confusing if you ask for directions. Remember that GPS can be used in RV rentals in Orlando.

Camping made easy

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is a magical place to stay. Wake up to the fairy-tale woodlands where rabbits, ducks and armadillos roam. There’s plenty to do with an all American beach, impressive pool areas and family entertainment.

Tropical Palms Resort & Campground is located just minutes from all the popular theme parks and KOA Lake Whippoorwill has a breathtaking location with lake-view campsites.

More than Mickey

Rather than visiting a theme park where a track guides you through water, why not take to the actual water on a Kayak Eco-tour and explore the headwaters of the Everglades, near Miami. Or just avoid excitement altogether and relax in a world-class spa. The Grand Bohemian Hotel spa and Waldorf Astoria Spa are luxurious options.

After dark, see magic in action at the Amway Centre downtown - home of the Orlando Magic NBA basketball team. Basketball season runs from October to June. Take your campervan to space! Or as close as you can get, at Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Centre. Occasional rocket launches and loads of artefacts keep tourists coming back.

Leave the bustle and head to the beach for a day trip. St. Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and Tarpon Springs are only about a two-hour drive away, near Tampa, via Interstate 4. Or hit the surf at Cocoa Beach, closest to Orlando.

What to eat

Far from serving only theme-park junk food, Orlando has become a sophisticated dining destination in its own right. Ravenous Pig is a foodie haven that’s on everyone’s lips. If you’re wondering why, try the decadent Pig Tails with Chocolate Espresso Sauce. Four Rivers Smokehouse is likewise an institution that can’t be passed up. The Angus Brisket and St. Louis Ribs are fall-off-the-bone, mouth-wateringly good. For cheap eats, South American Cuisine Amazonas Latin Grill does some tasty treats for less than a fiver, or follow your nose to the roast beef sandwich shop on Brumby Avenue – Beefy King.

It would be rude to leave Orlando without dinner and a show. Comedians, actors, acrobats and dancers will entertain you while you noisily chew through their performance. Arabian Nights, Treasure Tavern and Sleuths Mystery Dinner are some of the best.

An inside guide to the locals

A few quick facts on Orlando folk:

  • Orlando is conservative, despite its thrill-seeking ways.

  • Walt Disney is not frozen inside Cinderella’s Castle.

  • Orlando is home to the fastest-growing Puerto Rican community in the country.

  • Many Orlando locals have worked in the parks at some point. They’re the ones that won’t leave a stray piece of trash forgotten on the side of the street.

  • The official population count in 2012 was 249,562.

For the thrill seekers

If you’re going to do it, do it right. These are the best rides in Orlando:

Burning hot to very wet

There are two major seasons in Orlando. One is hot and rainy (May-September), the other is dry and cool (October-April). In the peak of summer, temperatures can rise to around 37 degrees and thunderstorms occur daily. Hurricanes are frequent enough to pose problems, but generally fizzle out before reaching so far inland.

Which motorhome is for me?

Orlando is the largest rental car market in the world and known as the capital of rental rvs, which means there are plenty of options for your RV rental, too. The aptly named RV Rentals of Orlando has had stellar reviews and a fleet of reliable vehicles. Britz Campervan Rentals, Apollo RV, El Monte RV and Road Bear RV are solid alternative options. So even if you’re looking for an rv rental in Orlando with unlimited miles, you wouldn't have to browse the internet for RV rentals by owner because we can definitely find one for you.

RV renting tips for Orlando

A quick, handy travelling guide for your Orlando vacation:

  • Book early! In peak season vehicles tend to sell out. Plus, you can often find cheaper prices if you get in promptly. The same goes for theme park tickets.

  • The Orlando FlexTicket can save you a bunch of money if you’re heading to more than one theme park. It won’t get you into the Disney parks, whereas the Park Hopper will.

  • Remember to tip. Serving staff in restaurants depend upon tips to make a living, so add 15-20% to the bill.

  • Take a photo of the nearest sign in the theme park parking lots when you arrive. It might help you when all the rentals look the same.

  • Never leave valuable items in your camper unattended, and take any shopping to your hotel room as soon as possible.

  • Don’t run barefoot on the grass. Between the fire ants and the St Augustine grass, your feet will not thank you.

  • Watch out for horse-drawn carriages.
