Whether you work for Disney World, or just want to live close to the magic, there are plenty of great apartment communities just minutes from the Disney parks. These apartments offer beautiful units and exceptional amenities you can only find in the Disney area of Orlando. Not to mention, if you live at one of these locations you will be surrounded by world class dining and shopping. Although you may be surrounded by tourists, living by Disney can be a wonderful experience at one of of these apartment communities.

Rapallo Apartments is definitely worth checking out if you want to live in the shadow of the Epcot ball. Rapallo is located off West Osceola Parkway in Hunters Creek; just east of the Disney World. This apartment complex offers a variety of layouts in one, two or three bedroom floor plans. Many of the apartments offer a solarium or patio, perfect for soaking up the warmth on sunny days. Other great apartment features include: crown molding, balconies, upgraded countertops, alarm systems, walk-in closets, private bathrooms and extra storage space. After a long day at the one of the Disney parks, come home to a relaxing dip in Rapallo's hot tub or resort-style pool. If you're not an outdoor person, Rapallo has great indoor entertainment features like a movie theater, computer lab, coffee bar and business center.

Another great apartment complex in Hunters Creek is Urbana Apartments. Urbana is located near the intersection of South John Young Parkway and Town Center Boulevard, just minutes from Disney. This conveniently located community is perfect for anyone looking for an apartment with tons of space. The largest floor plan available, the three-bedroom option, has 1,628 square feet and three bathrooms! Apartment features are luxurious, and include specifics such as: upgraded countertops, walk-in closets, balconies or patios, wood floors, private bathrooms, and extra storage space. If you love animals, Urbana's pet policy allows for cats, dogs and aquariums. And when you do finally get sick of your super spacious apartment, Disney is just a quick drive away.

But if you really want to live in Disney World's backyard, Buena Vista Place Apartments is your dream come true. This apartment complex is located on the northern edge of Disney property, just off Reams Road. Buena Vista Place offers one, two or three bedroom floor plans at a very affordable price for the area. Apartments come with great features, such as a dishwasher, central air conditioning, walk-in closets, a balcony or patio, and ceiling fans in every bedroom and common room. If you are searching for a place near Disney because you work for Mickey, Buena Vista Place is the best option you are going to find. Just a short drive puts you smack dab in the middle of Disney World within a couple of minutes.
