Traveling with a group can be a lot of fun, and it can be a great way to cut down on the cost of your Orlando vacation. However, it has its own unique challenges. Travel With Kate has an interesting blog post that gives 7 tips for traveling in large groups. Head over there to read it in its entirety, or check out our top 6 tips below.
1. Understand that sticking together all the time is unlikely
You may like the idea of everyone doing everything together for the entirety of your trip, but it’s an unrealistic expectation. Expect that more times than not, you’ll be breaking up into smaller groups. Don’t take it personally.
2. Do your homework
Take the time to understand the ins and outs of Orlando, including how to get discounted theme park tickets, the best places to stay, and what the crowd levels will be while you’re traveling. Talk to your group to find out which activities they are most interested in.
3. Have a schedule
You may not want to have a schedule, but with a large group it is a must. You’ll need to know how to budget your time, you’ll need a financial budget, and you definitely need ideas on where you’ll eat. However, be prepared for the schedule to change as you tour Orlando.
4. Make time for free time
You need down time. Even if you think you don’t, even if you want to get the most bang for your buck, you absolutely need down time. If you don’t take it, you may get more done but you won’t enjoy it nearly as much as you will if you’re refreshed and ready to take on the day.
5. Consider all your transportation options
When it comes to large groups traveling together, transportation is freedom. Especially as you break up into smaller groups, everyone needs a way to get where they’re going. If you’re not sure how many cars to rent, err on the side of more rather than fewer.
6. Be prepared with plenty of snacks
Most fights happen when people are hungry. Have plenty of snacks on hand to ensure everyone’s blood sugar stays on an even keel.
