Book your accommodations early, to get the most flexibility on your Orlando roller coaster vacation. It's nice to get the hotel picked out and over with. Once you know what you're going to stay someplace, then you can shift your focus over to the attractions nearby. I love using google maps, as you can put the address in and click for restaurants nearby. It's nice to get a listing of all the restaurants within about a mile of your location, so you can walk to it, therefore cocktails are not a problem. One of the amenities we like the most is having a poolside bar, like they have at the peabody resort or the Coronado Springs Resort. Make sure you get a giant Swimming Pool, there is no need to have any swimming pools that are only the size of something that it would be in a residential backyard. Just think about a hotel that has one hundred units, you would expect a Swimming Pool to be of proportional size. Orlando is about huge swimming pools, so you might as well get one since most of the hotels have it.
