Im gonna be moving down to Orlando this summer to attend college at UCF. Im also going to be working/interning at Disney World. Ive been looking around at places to lives and either its ghetto and ridden with bugs or nice but like $2000 a month. Also i really dont know what areas around there are really bad or good. Ive looked at some other threads on which areas to avoid but there from 2008 or so and alot of things change in 4 years. So my question is what would be a good area/neighborhood IN THE MIDDLE OF the UCF campus area and Disney World for me to look into. Not ghetto but not too exspensive for a college student to afford ($600-$800?). Also i emphasized "in the middle of" because i have a leased car and can only put so many miles on it and if i live all the way up by UCF and need to commute alot of miles daily to get to Disney it wont work out. Any info is really appreciated. Thanks

There are a few apartment complexes along Conway Road that fit the bill.

Agreed. All the apartment complexes along conway road are basically UCF student apartments. Low rent, decent amenities, and mostly people your age. Rent between $650 and $750. Try searching google.
Also check out: offcampus.housing.ucf.edu, and UCF Apartments | Apartments Near UCF - 407apartments.com. Also, be warned that using apartmentratings.com is a bad idea. Its a crappy website and its super biased. Better to try and contact a student who lives there, or just going for a tour of the place. Good luck!

Downtown might work. You'd be right near I-4 and the 408, and if needed, you could use the 408 to 429 to bypass I-4 traffic on busy days in order to get to Disney.

I think you should live close to UCF and just commute to work. Main reason being YOU NEED TO GO TO SCHOOL. The closer you are the less likely you are to miss class. Plus class is only like 30% of why you have to go to campus. Groupwork, studygroups, labs, projects, research, etc... are just as important as going to class, even though not all students realize this.

Oh and after a month or two you will have met someone to carpool with. Trust me your not the only student working at disney.

I lived on Conway and worked at Disney and went to UCF. As long as you aren't traveling at rush hour it's a good location.
