I did it.
You are going to make less money but you don’t have a state income tax. Property taxes are now about the same as what we had in NJ but house insurance is much higher. Bugs yeah there are lots of bugs and instead of having season like up north you just get a change of bugs.
Over all I love FLA but I wouldn’t move here to be closer to Disney. Disney doesn’t seem as special to me now (don’t get me wrong I still like it but I’m not into Disney for the entertainment value).
If you are you serious about it come down to Orlando and rent a place up by winter park and spend a week doing stuff besides Disney. Read the Orlando Sentinel (esp the neighborhood blogs). Meet with a realtor to see houses in your price range. Check out the job boards to see what type of jobs are available. oh and do it the first week of Aug that will give you the worst of the worst heat and humidity (which truthfully after living here a couple years I really don’t notice it).
