Top Vacation Tips


       Always buy your attraction tickets in advance NOT at the gate, and you will save time and money.

       If you're flying to Orlando International Airport and picking up a car, we suggest that the main driver goes to the car rental desk while the rest of the party waits for the luggage. You could save up to an hour by doing this!

      When going to a Theme Park the car parks are Huge so take a note of where you are parked or take a photo of your row number and section with your phone this way you can find your car at the end of a long tiring day.

       Take bottled water with you to the Parks; you can always fill up the bottles at the water fountains. This will save a lot of money.

       Get in line at least an hour before the Disney Parade starts and sit on the left hand side of Main Street facing the castle to get the best view.

       Stay a little later in Summer to see the Disney Fireworks in the Magic Kingdom. They are amazing.

       The best way to tour the World Showcase in Epcot is to start from Canada and continue anti clockwise.

       If you are having lunch or dinner in Epcot choose the Lunch Menu as they are almost the same size and cheaper.

       You must stay for the Epcot Fireworks! Try to find a space at the Cantina De Angle or the Rose and Crown Pub. They are the best spots and be there early about 45 minutes before the display starts.

       If you are going to Universal Studos you must do the "Revenge of the Mummy" and try to get the back row seating. Really!

       Take a waterproof bag with you to put your valuables and camera in as most of the theme park water rides do get you very, very wet.

       Be warned the first 14 rows of the "Shamu Show" at Seaworld are in the "Splash Zone"

       At Busch Gardens go early to see the animals with fantastic photo opportunities as they tend to hide away in the hot afternoon sun.

       If you have an evening flight home why not go to Gatorland on your final day as it is only a 20 minute drive to Orlando International Airport.

       If it's raining and you have a free day try Wonderworks/Ripley's or the Titanic Experience on International Drive.

       Want to learn to surf?? Why not book a lesson at Typhoon Lagoon. They have a surf school 2 hours before the park opens. Call 407-939-7529 to book in advance.

       Water Parks are a wonderful way of cooling down in the hot Florida sun, but don't forget your sun screen.

       It's a good idea to get a cheap waterproof camera for use at the waterparks.

       Going to Universal City Walk? Then go after 6:00 p.m. as the parking is free and you can get closer to the entrance as well.
