Driving Through Disney`s Maingate West
Disney`s Maingate West is right by the intersection of U.S. Route 192, which goes east-west, and the Daniel Webster Western Beltway, a major north-south route. Disney World® covers the area to the northeast of the intersection, with the entrance to the sprawling resort just a few miles away from Maingate West area hotels. If the main reason you chose Orlando vacation packages is to visit Disney World®, consider car rentals close to Disney`s Maingate West for the convenience and flexibility of getting not just to, but around, the massive property. With four theme parks, two water parks, golf courses, and shopping and dining districts spread over 43 square miles, having your own car can be very useful. Another benefit of car rentals in Orlando is the ability to reach whatever destinations throughout the region pique your interest. Drive approximately 64 miles east on Florida State Road 417 and you`ll reach the Kennedy Space Center, a must-see for anyone with an interest in space travel. Beautiful beaches along the Atlantic Coast are also within reach for a day trip. Closer to your home base, take an air boat tour of the alligator-filled swamps around local lakes. A number of tour companies offering these trips are based in Kissimmee.
