Let’s face it, there is only one reason why you plan to go to Orlando Florida and that’s to go and see the attractions. Orlando could be considered as the attraction capital of the world, but this makes planning trips to this destination so difficult. With loads of attractions including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Center and SeaWorld, attracting 48 million visitors a year it can be a dizzying decision for where and what you want to see in the time you will spend there.
The main three theme parks you will most likely want to see are Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Bearing this in mind you will need to schedule in the days for a specific attraction as it’s not easy to fit more than one of these inside one day. many people will usual stay in Orlando for a fortnight so that assigning days to certain areas can be more manageable and also leaves ‘rest days’ for when you just want to relax and take it easy after all the travelling you will accomplish in a week.
When traveling with kids and the family, the first port of call will be Walt Disney World as this is the epicentre of the entire resort. There are usually some good deals for this in the summer but you may not want to get a ticket for over 7 days admittance unless you are a die-hard Disney fan. this leaves an entire week for you to soak up Walt Disney World in its entirety. it is also the park that will require the most energy so it’s best to start off with this.
Universal Studios would be recommended next and is great for people who like thrill rides. here they will find The Hulk roller coaster and Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, but there are more sedate rides for the entire family too. Universal Orlando tickets are usually for unlimited access for 14 days, covering off your stay, just in case you want to mix things up a little.
For the final part of the holiday you may be feeling a little tired, so SeaWorld is a great place to finish off. SeaWorld has various sister attractions such as Discovery Cove and Busch Gardens which can be included in 2-park or 3-park tickets, again covering 14 days of your trip.
How much time you want to spend in each park is entirely up to you and there are various ticket options to choose from. There may also be some additional attractions you want to visit toward the end of your stay such as the Kennedy Space Center and Gatorland.
Although there is ample public transport in the resort, usually by coach, the best option is to hire a car giving you more freedom and flexibility in case you ever change your mind about where you want to visit. The rest is up to you you may want to focus on one resort for a number of days or mix it up. Just remember it’s meant to be holiday and not a day out
