There’s a staggering degree of choice in Orlando. However, if you are visiting this Florida city yourself, you could have so many options right in front of you that you overlook alternatives that are more concealed but also, ultimately, better. Here are tips for avoiding such oversights.
Book your ticket for Universal Studios Florida in advance
This theme park is undoubtedly among the city’s biggest attractions. However, don’t buy your ticket at the gate; TIME‘s Money website advises that you can save money by instead paying for that ticket through the Universal Studios Florida website.
Spend a day less at Universal than you had initially planned
Buy a pass that lets you visit Universal for one fewer day. You can spend that day buying food that is less expensive than what is available in the theme park.
Consider buying passes strictly for the water park
This is because Universal charges much less for a pass just to its Volcano Bay water park than for a ticket to any of its other Orlando parks.
Have food sent to your accommodation
Amazon can provide this service for you – and it can save you money compared to buying food from a resort restaurant instead. However, first check that this service would be allowed at your accommodation.
Use rideshares, not rental cars
Parking can be expensive, but you can avoid potentially heavy costs by having yourself transported around Orlando through lifts provided by Lyft or Uber instead of renting a car to drive yourself.
Reconsider buying souvenirs from Universal
Many souvenirs sold at Universal Studios Florida might be available from outlets outside the park – and, if it is, one of those outlets might offer the souvenir you want at a cheaper price.
Consider visiting Fun Spot for family fun
Fun Spot is an attraction recommended on the Independent.ie website. It’s got bumper boats, a wooden rollercoaster and more – and you are unlikely to have the problem of big queues.
Try some indoor skydiving at iFLY
This company offers a base for indoor skydiving near Universal Studios – and even kids can safely try it. This certainly provides something a bit different to the more stereotypical Florida attractions.
Plan ahead with booking accommodation
You can get good deals by doing this. Ocean Florida is currently offering enticing accommodation across a pleasing variety of locations for Orlando holidays in 2018, so don’t needlessly delay booking.
