My family (4 small children + husband) is considering a relocation to the Greater Orlando area. My husband works from home and travels (airport) frequently. So although work location is not a consideration, good schools and a safe community are the primary consideration

We have done extensive research and the Oviedo area sounds like it may be a good fit for our family.

Is anyone familiar with the following areas:

for the Kansas City metro area
Would Oviedo be similar to Olathe? Or maybe even Lawerence (KU)?
What area would be similar to Overland Park?

for the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill
Would Oviedo be similar to Wake Forest?
What area would be similar to North Raleigh?

Also, we heard March is the best time to find a rental in the Orlando area. Is this true for areas such as Oviedo as well?

And lastly, is there a general opinion about the Disney parks? Do residents of Orlando visit? We are excited about visiting the parks occasionally, but I am not sure what the locals think? Does this get old quickly if you live there?

Thank you! I am an long-time and avid reader of City-Data

Olathe actually is very similar to Oviedo. It has that rural feel and while off the beaten path it is still relatively close to things.. It is mostly pretty new too ( not the downtown but the homes)

Oviedo does have the highest rated schools in the area and most like it very much.

Hi! I cannot answer to your geographic specific questions, but we moved here a year and a half ago and we have season tickets to Disney - and while a bit of the Magic is gone, we still enjoy going! We do Disney mostly this year (we have 15 month tickets) and when they expire, we will choose a different park to get season tickets for. Most folks I know do go to the parks now and again, not all the time as they are quite expensive to do all the time, and there are plenty of other things to do around here (beaches, nature parks, 'regular' entertainment) and you get busy with life as well, so, that is my view of Life with the Theme Parks!
