Long term Orlando FL RV sites

One of my wife's 'bucket list' items is, she really wants to work at Disney, at least for one winter. She retires next summer so she'll have the opportunity to do so next winter.

We'll be in the Orlando area in about a week, visiting our little rodent friend. While we're there we hope to check out possible long term (three to six months) arrangements for NEXT winter, the winter of 2012 - 2013. I'm soliciting opinions on what area parks would be worth checking out, perhaps in the $500 to $800 per month range. Wouldn't mind renting from an IRV2 member either, should one of you have something in the area that would be available.

Also, does anyone have any experience staying at Ft Wilderness while working for the mouse? I've heard they'll let you stay, at a 40% discount (for employees), subject to "availability" - you may end up getting booted out, or having to pay full price for weeks at a time.

Thanks for any suggestions...

Many snowbirds who work at Disney stay in the Davenport, Haines City, Winter Haven area. Kississimi may also be an area you want to look at, although as a winter resident of the area I do not go to Kississimi after dark. A good place to start your search would be www.rvparkreviews.com. Good luck.

Try Winter Garden RV park off RT50. We are here now and it's a nice park with a sign that says $400 a month.

We stayed at Rainbow Chase RV Resort just a couple of miles south of Disney a few years ago (corner of Rt 54 & Rt 545). Nice place for a reasonable cost. It is oriented toward Snowbirds and does not cater to the 'usual' Disney vacation crowd. Here is the review of the campground. Page down a few screens to get to the park review. When we were there, they closed down in the Summer, but that may have changed now. Call them for more info.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I'll check them out. We're headed to Orlando later today and will be there for a couple weeks.

Two years ago, I spent the winter at Elite Resorts at Citrus Valley, on Rt 27 about 2 miles north of Rt 192.

Nice place as it has been completely rebuilt and is relatively new.

We like Mouse Mountain, have stayed several winters there. We now go to TX for the winter but when we go to Orlando in the fall to visit our son we stay at Florida Campinn because it is closer to his home. Both about 15-20 miles for WDW.

We did not stay at Mouse Mountain, but drove through the park. The biggest problem I have with the place is that most of the sites are a 90 degree angle to the road, the sites and roads are very narrow. With my moderate ability to back into sites, I knew I would have a LOT of problems trying to get into the sites. They do have some sites in the back that are angled to the road and those would be a lot easier access. But, most of them are the latter category....
