There are many offerings in and around the Orlando/Kissimmee area, within a short driving distance to the Walt Disney World Resort.

If you are planning on a week-long stay at Disney World or in the Orlando area and really want to save on your room this is the way to go. As long as you have transportation (a Rental Car or your own car) and you won't miss the Disney theming in and around your resort you'll save a bunch.

To search AFVC:

Use the orange search box on the left
Select United States in the Choose a Region box
Select FLORIDA - Orlando Area in the Choose a Destination box
Click on your desired month

When your results come up you can sort by various factors like: Rating, Size, Price, Date, or City. I like to sort by City, I look at the Kissimmee and Orlando listings, especially those with Lake Buena Vista in the name.

For each individual resort you'll see available dates and room types with a button to book those dates. Also you'll find a "Learn More" button for additional information on the resort including: a list of Amenities, Highlights, Directions, and Additional Information. You can then Google search the name of the resort for more information.

Here's an example:
