Here is link on Mapquest that illustrates central
Florida relative to Disney World and the Water parks. Orlando is about 45-mins to an hour from the beaches Cocoa and Titusville. and Cape Canaveral.
The Orlando Watersports complex is just off of I-4 about 5-10mins from Downtown.
My suggestion is to get a map and go exploring. Get to know the area and the best way is to google stuff and get on the road. ( I know gas is expensive but buying a home in an area you might not like is more expensive).
Do what you are doing by asking here on this site. My colleagues and I are glad to help.
