The fact that Disney theme parks are giving away free admission on your birthday proves that Mickey and Minnie–like the rest of America–are hurtin’ for business. It truly is a small world after all, a small, small world.
The competition to lodge would-be tourists, however, is as ginormous Disney World and Disneyland themselves. If you’re an owner of a Disney Area vacation rental, it’s crucial to market your property in a way that stands out.
You do that by peppering your listing with solid, specific content.
This Kissimmee vacation home anticipates every question and answers them. It’s one thing to say your home is near Disney, but to actually describe its “upscale section of International Drive South, in the center of Orlando ‘s tourist district” close to Disney World, Sea World and Universal with travel times next to each attraction is precisely the strategy necessary to secure trust from a consumer who may be on the fence.
The listing goes further with directions from the airport, along with recommendations for venues not related to the famous mouse at all. Because after four days of standing in 85-degree heat for The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, you may want to see something else. Like a gallery.
One factoid missing that I would have personally added to this description: The home of this, um, vacation home–Floridays Resort Orlando–earned the No. 4 rating out of 394 Orlando hotels by TripAdvisor. Not as great as No. 1 obviously, but still pretty damn good.
Valerie Moloney is your resident blogger and the Expansion Markets Editor for Citysearch.com, who oddly enough, feels panicked when asked, "What's the best place to eat in Chicago?" or her favorite, "It's my birthday. Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
