How Many Days In Orlando Should I Stay?
With more Orlando vacation packages available than ever, you’re likely wondering how many days you’d need to experience a complete vacation.
After all, if you don’t fit enough time into your itinerary, you could end up missing out on some of the region’s best attractions. Similarly, with too many days on your list, your family could tire out and find it difficult to enjoy the remainder of the getaway — or simply run out of things to do!
First-time Visitors: 5 Days
If you have yet to experience all the great entertainment Orlando has to offer, you probably can’t wait to get started. However, it’s easy to get a bit carried away: there’s just so much to do!
As such, we recommend sticking with the “must-see” destinations your first time around. Five days tend to be the perfect amount for both families and solo travelers.
For example, you could split up your time like this:
Days 1-3: Disney World
You simply can’t have a full Orlando experience without a trip to Disney World. Once you arrive, you’ll soon realize that you don’t ever want to leave — which is why you’ll need at least three days to soak in as much magic as possible.
With this plan, you’ll be able to visit one park each day, though you’ll miss out on EPCOT — something you can save for your next visit.
Days 4-5: Universal Studios
Next, you can continue the classic Florida fun by journeying to Universal Studios Orlando. Two days is generally enough to see the most famous areas of the park, though we advise purchasing a park-to-park ticket to receive access to the Hogwarts Express in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
This itinerary might not contain everything that makes the area so great — you’d need much more time for that — but it’s a great starting point for your first trip.
Return Visitors: 5+ Days
If you’re a returning traveler hoping to take advantage of some bargain Orlando vacation packages, you have a bit more wiggle room to plan your trip with. You’ve probably already seen a few main attractions like Disney World and Universal Studios, which means you can explore other destinations — or go back for a second time!
Some items to add to your list include:
- SeaWorld: An amusement park that offers all the wonder of the open ocean, a visit to SeaWorld is another great way to fill your vacation with thrills.
- Legoland: Guaranteed fun for the entire family, Legoland Florida has all the creativity and kid-friendly delight you’ve come to know from the brand, including over 50 rides and dozens of entertaining shows.
- Dinner Shows: From Medieval Times to Sleuths Mystery Dinner, Orlando’s diverse range of delicious dinner shows will make your evening one to remember.
