I am sorry i didn't see this post from you earlier.
Short Term Rental communities have to be approved by the county the community is in.
If it is zoned for short term, then you can also long term let it or live in it full time.
If the community is zoned residential, then you can live in it or long term let it but not short term at all.
In the Disney area, it is not a certain area that has STR zones but each community has to have the approval.
I hope this was helpful.
You can contact me anytime to discuss homes in the Disney area for short term rentals, management companies, as well as the differences in buying in the states as compared to the U.K.
