Pickle says… I have never been to Orlando, but Mummy and my sisters and brother have been three times. She would absolutely love to take me one day – and is planning a big holiday there in 2021. She is already saving, and has some tips to save money on your Orlando holiday….
Most people visit Orlando for the theme parks, although there are loads more things to do there.
Here are our top 5 tips to save money on your Orlando holiday:
- Buy your theme park tickets whilst in the UK before you leave. Some websites give you payment plan options to spread the cost. Look at combo tickets for different attractions too.
- As amazing as Disney Hotels are, you spend such little time in your room, so pick a budget hotel in Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista or International Drive – all are in easy driving (or shuttle bus) distance from the main theme parks. Even budget hotels will have air conditioning, pools and usually a free shuttle bus to the main attractions. Look for familiar chains such as Travelodge or Holiday Inn.
- Choose a hotel which includes breakfast so you can start the day with full tummies!
- If you are a large family, look at villa options – although Mummy travelled as a family of 5 and didn’t find villas any cheaper. It may be an option if you travel with grand parents etc.
- Many US diner / restaurant main meal portions are HUGE! Ask to split between children – or even two adults. The servers are used to this request and will bring you an extra plate.
A holiday to Orlando is totally a trip of a lifetime and we cannot wait to go again! Have you visited Orlando? What attractions would you recommend and do you have any money saving tips to add?
