Heather (ilovedisney247) did just that. She packed up and moved from New Orleans to Orlando. I keep "threatening" my DH that I will get a nursing job at Disney and we will need to move. I think if we weren't in an upside down mortgage, we probably already would have done it.
Yes, we did make the move to southwest Florida in November 2010!
But it took us 2 years to sell our home in Indiana and get ready to actually make the move.
And even after all of the preparation and all of the plans we made, we still had issues with employment once we moved to Florida.
We love living here in southwest Florida, but I strongly suggest to you that if you are serious about moving and you need to be employed, do your research!!!
Jobs are very difficult to find, unless you want retail or service jobs. Those jobs do not pay well.
It has taken my dh 2 1/2 years to find a very good job with a reputable company.
If you have any specific questions, feel free to PM me. I will help you anyway I can.
with your decision!
We moved to Orlando (from MA) five years ago and I have never been happier. Thankfully we secured good jobs before moving here so that was not an issue but I certainly would not move here without a job lined up as the cost of living, especially in Orlando is not exactly cheap. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me!

My kids want to move to Florida. I tell them WDW is not what all of Florida is like. I have been to a lot of areas in Florida and its like anywhere else, good places and bad. If I were moving I would get in touch with someone who I could trust and knows the area so I didn't end up somewhere I didn't want to be.
