International drive was the place to be if you were looking for a good base to explore. Long before the Disney themed hotels became available !! We stayed at the Comfort inn hotel close to Wet n' Wild water park.
We stayed there in August 2009 and i can say that for the price we paid, it exceeded our expectations. Good value for your money, accessible, quiet, close to everything, shopping, Ripleys' Believe it or not, complimentary breakfast, parking is good, smimming pool is not bad at all.
Unique Quality: Close to everything, parking, quiet, swimming pool, free breakfast.
The wife and I are taking our children (2 boys - 6 and 8) to Orlando in mid August for 1 week. Can anyone recommend a place to stay that is centrally located and is reasonably priced? We likely won't be renting a vehicle and will have to eat all our meals out.
Lastly, I heard workers in Emergency Services (firefighters, Ambulance personal, etc) received a discount at the main theme parks - Sea World etc, that they just had to just go to the parks ticket gate, show identification and they would be offered a discount, any truth to that???
There is no doubt you will have to based on Int'l Drive, because it's the most accessible area to be based without car hire

I’d consider pre-booking the I-RIDE TROLLEY
Nearly all these hotels will offer complementary own shuttle service to Disney and Universal Parks
Airport Transfer Orlando Int’l (MCO)
Taxi one-way estimated at US$40
Local Airport Bus
I’m almost certain that military personnel get a substantial discount or free entry with uniform on. It as been known that Fire-fighters and Red Cross workers where offered free tickets to some parks or discount, but it’s not ongoing, you should make inquires by phone
