5 Tips To Save Money on Your Orlando Holiday

5 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Choose a hotel which includes breakfast so you can start the day with full tummies!
  4. 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.
  5. 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?


  1. I would LOVE to go to Orlando – I’m a huge fan of theme parks but have never taken the kids to one of these huge ones. These are great tips for making it more affordable – I’ll have to start planning our own outing now!

  2. I loved Orlando as a child and would love to take my children one day. I’ll definitely remember these tips if we ever manage to get there x

  3. Oh man I would love love to go. It’s on my bucketlist…is it bad that it’s not even for the sake of my kiddies but for me

  4. Another location to add to our family travel bucket list. Believe it or not, this is what we did when we went to Disneyland Paris last year, or should I say my wife did. She made sure we had all the tickets preplanned and which days did which parks etc. Great tips and I am sure we will be using something very similar. Thank you for the reminder.

  6. I don’t think I’ll ever make it to Orlando. But I’ll bookmark this in my travel folder, just in case I ever do 😉

  7. Very useful tips! It is our ultimate goal to visit Orlando. One day fingers crossed! 🙂

  8. These are great tips! Even living in the U.S it’s a great idea to book everything well ahead of time but I love your idea of staying in a hotel outside of Disney. Definitely saves money:)

  9. We’ve never been mainly because the planning really puts me off. I just don’t know where to start! Great advice! I always like accommodation that offers breakfast – so much easier than trying to find somewhere to eat when you’re hungry!
