No matter how old you are, or how old your kids are, at some point in your life, you are bound to crave a holiday in Orlando. After all, what’s not to like? The abundance of theme parks and attractions are enough of a reason to visit, let alone all the extras that you can enjoy as part of your stay. However, it’s not always as easy as clicking the ‘book now’ button. The costs can soon add up and, often, the total outlay can be rather overwhelming – and that’s before you even factor in spending money once you’re there.
However, it doesn’t need to be that bad! You shouldn’t have to worry about how you’re going to afford it, especially when there are plenty of more affordable ways to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer nowadays. Remember that the Internet is your friend and, if you know where to look and how to be a little savvy, you will find that your money can go much, much further.
Don’t assume that the offers that the travel agent is providing are the be all and end all, because chances are, if you head online, you’ll find cheaper, web exclusive options that will trump their offers every time. Rather than booking a package deal, consider organising things separately to save yourself some cash; for example, book your flights to Orlando separately to your accommodation and you may be able to make some considerably savings.
Plan your itinerary before you travel, and also before you book tickets to the various attractions. There’s no point organising to visit a particular attraction if nobody in your family will appreciate it. For example, if you’re travelling with very young children who aren’t tall enough to try out the thrilling white-knuckle coasters, perhaps it would be wise to avoid the theme parks that are based around them.
Once you have decided on the attractions and parks you do plan to visit, grab your tickets in advance. Alternatively, invest in a flexi ticket or weekly pass so that you can make use of the savings – these are usually bookable in advance, too.
If you have the flexibility to choose when to travel, avoid the peak seasons. While this isn’t always possible due to the school term dates, you will find much better deals if you travel when others won’t be. Be a little savvy and you’ll find your trip to Orlando is far more affordable than you may have originally thought.
