Moving To Orlando
 
First, mods I have NO idea if this is the right place for this so I apologize if it needs to be moved.

Now. I'm doing it- I'm moving to Orlando in March for WDW. I've done some looking and realize Kissimmee would be closer to the World but for work purposes and school, Orlando would be better for living. That being said, does anyone have any apartment complexes they would recommend? Any areas to avoid/ or are better for 20 somethings?

Thanks in advance for your help. :)

No problem :) Hopefully we get some answers. Are you moving just for WDW or another reason?

Pretty much for WDW and IOA. Lol. I live in Jacksonville right now. So not to big if a move.

Thats cool :) I'm used to moving, I grew up an Army brat. I won't know a single person in Orlando- the closest semi-friend is my aunt's best friend almost 2 hours away. But might as well go on an adventure I say.

Haha. I know a few people already. It's been kinda a dream for me to move there for te past year

Dang I didnt know people actually moved to Orlando to be closer to WDW. I dont know if it would feel the same if I wasn't staying on one of the resorts the whole time.
I'd live on a resort if I could

I understand.

Honestly, I've lived in 8 different states. I'd love to go overseas but it's financially impossible. WDW is my happy place. To know after a bad day at work I can zip to MK for a ride or two, maybe a Mickey bar, I can't imagine anything better.

found this website very good
http://www.city-data.com/forum/orlando/

someone of the disney recommended it last year

been trying myself.

my problem have a condo in birmingham to sell or rent first.

and condo's are not selling here now...

that say renting it would not be a problem - it is a nice section - but then would have to pay rent some place else - and i am a cheap...

you might also look for the yellow pages - lots of cheaper places don't post on the web.

remember it is the South - so minimum wage is standard.

also don't have any friends or relatives - brother is in St Augustine - cousin is north of Tampa


that say sometimes different is what is needed

Third generation native Floridian here, been living within 30 miles of Orlando since the age of 3 (except for college).
For 20 somethings, I would recommend moving near one of the colleges:
UCF - 3rd largest university in the country in terms of undergrad enrollment. East of downtown Orlando about 20 miles from WDW.
VCC - The main campus is about 3 miles from entrance to US/IoA.
Rollins College - In Winter Park, about 20 miles from WDW.
SCC - In Sanford, about 30 miles from WDW.
Stetson University - In Deland, about 40 miles from WDW. Located between Orlando and Daytona Beach in case the beach is important to you.
DBC - In Daytona, about 60 miles from WDW.
LCC - In Leesburg, about 60 miles from WDW.
Lots of apartments available in these areas and others your age to meet.
