When it comes to theme parks there is no place on Earth which has the volume, the scale or the ability to offer enjoyment quite like Orlando, which houses some of the world’s greatest parks. It is precisely for this reason why millions flock to Orlando each and every year and why so many families dream of taking their summer holiday in Florida. Given that for many this is a once in a lifetime trip, it is vital that you are able to make the absolute most out of these parks during your time there, and here are some tips on how you can do just that and make your holiday to Orlando one which nobody will forget.
Get In Early
As soon as you have booked your holiday it is time to work out your itinerary and decide on which parks you will go to and on which days you will go. The reason for this is that it is vital that buy your Orlando theme park tickets before you go in order to ensure availability and to enjoy some big savings which you won’t get when you buy on the door. Take your time working out your itinerary as you may find that you only pencil in 1 day for a certain park, when actually 2 or 3 days would be better, research what you want to see and do, and use that information to prepare your schedule.
Getting your head around the various passes which you can get at each theme park will also help you to make the most of this trip and it can help you to beat the queue. Universal Studios and Disney offer Express and Fast passes which give you the chance to skip the queues on 3 occasions, this is included in the price of your ticket. More passes are available in these parks and some of the parks will give you the chance to spend a little more for extra passes in order to jump the queues. The passes not only need to be obtained as soon as possible but you also need to know how to use them, and on which rides, after all it is pointless using a pass for a ride with a small queue. Do your research and make the most out of this opportunity.
Staying on Site
If you haven’t booked your accommodation yet then consider staying in a hotel which is associated with a theme park. The Disney hotel for example allows guests to enter the park an hour early and stay an hour later plus numerous benefits beyond that which you’ll get when staying at a Disney hotel. Many parks work in conjunction with either on-site hotels or hotels which are nearby, and you can get more bang for your buck if you decide to stay there.
Plot The Route
When it comes to which rides will be busiest and when, it is actually quite easy to find this information and you can use that to your advantage in order to minimize wait times. There is plenty of information available online which will give you a breakdown of the busiest and quietest times of each ride in the park, so be smart and plot your route to avoid hitting peak times.
Plan well in order to squeeze every drop of fun out of the theme parks in Orlando.
