7 Useful Tips to Help Plan Your Orlando Vacation
View » Disney Vacation Packages
1. When determining how many days you want to spend at the theme parks, you might consider not wanting to visit the theme park on the day you are arriving in town. Check-in at the hotels is not until 4 PM, and by you get settled, it does not leave very much time to enjoy the park of your choice. One option is to visit Downtown Disney or Universal City Walk, both of these attractions are free but they provide the same excitement, energy and feel of the larger theme parks. In addition both of these attractions also offer a range of dining options.
2. If you are visiting during high season (Spring Break, Christmas, Thanksgiving, or the 4th of July Weekend), you might want to include Sea World as one of the parks you visit. Sea World has very few theme park rides and most of their shows have no lines. After spending a few days of standing in long lines at Disney or Universal Studios, a day of being able to just walk up and enjoy a show is a huge relief.
3. If you are going to visit Walt Disney World, we suggest you buy the base tickets, and then upgrade the tickets when you are here. In a recent survey, nearly 60% of all guests who purchased the park hopper option never used it...why waste the money. If you purchase the base tickets and decide halfway through your vacation you would like to add a ticket option it is really easy. All you have to do is take your tickets to the customer service desk located at the front of each them park and tell the attendant on duty which option you would like to add. Once you have paid the attendant the extra money, they will add the option to your tickets. It only takes about 3 minutes.
4. If you are trying to save the money on your vacation, we strongly suggest that you will want to pick on of theme parks to visit. Keep in mind, Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld are seperate companies so if you want visit the three biggies we can definately build you a package around your wishes but this is going to be the most expensive way to see Orlando. All the companies offer huge discounts the longer you stay at their theme park...kind of like a loyalty discount if you will.
5. If you come back to Orlando quite often or if you think you will be coming back in the near future, consider buying more days on your Disney World tickets. For example, if you are going to be going to Disney World for 4 days, you might want to buy the 7 day ticket and then purchase the non-expiration option on your tickets. When you come back in a year or two, you will still have 3 days left to visit the parks. The 7 day ticket is only a few dollars more expensive than the 4 day ticket plus the small fee to make it have no expiration date. It may cost you more on each ticket this year, but you will definately save you money in the long run.
6. Walt Disney World is huge, actually it is the size of two Manhattan Islands put together. We suggest, if you are coming on a short Orlando vacation, youshould consider spending most of your vacation at Disney World. We promise there is plenty of rides, activities, and restaurants to keep you busy.
7. Orlando has two huge outlet shopping malls, and most hotels/vacation home communities have great pools so you don't have to plan a specific theme park for everyday that you are on vacation. In fact, a recent survey showed that most visitors walk as much a 10 miles a day at each one of the theme parks so a day off in the middle of your vacation could be a very welcomed break. There is no need to wear yourself out.
