Orlando Attractions: So Much To Choose From So Plan Wisely

May 23, 2008
Orlando attractions and theme parks draw more than 50-million people to the area every year. As a matter of fact, this Central Florida city welcomes more visitors to its theme parks, amusement parks and water parks than any other city in the world. The combination of the year-round tropical climate, superior accommodations and outstanding entertainment has made it the number one destination for families around the globe.

Seeing that this is such a popular travel destination, it is imperative that you make your reservations and plans ahead of time. This will not only ensure that you have an ideal place to stay when you visit Orlando theme parks, but it will also ensure that you get the best prices possible on your theme park vacation.

Planning your vacation during the off-season can also save big money. Peak vacation times include spring break weeks, mid-summer school vacations and Christmastime while slower times include January, February, and the end of October. If you can't take your trip during the off-season, be sure to book your vacation way in advance.

Going on vacation to different attractions, while expensive, does not have to break the bank if you follow a few simple guidelines. Forward thinking, anticipating, organizing and planning all protect your travel interests, saves money and avoids unnecessary costs. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to do the research needed.

The most helpful currency you have besides your travel funds is knowledge and information. Investing time, effort and a sometimes a little money to get quality information will save you money in the long run. The more you know about the attractions and theme parks you will be visiting, the more rewarding and fiscally successful your visit will be.

There are a couple of different ways to book your trip to Orlando. The first way is to shop the various vacation packages available and pick the one that fits your needs and budget. The second way is to price everything individually and look under every rock to ferret out the best deals. Regardless of which method is best for you, the first step is to research each park and attraction to find out which ones you may want to visit.

Here are just a few of the area attractions and theme parks that you can enjoy:

Animal Kingdom
Blizzard Beach
Cypress Gardens Adventure Park
Daytona 500 Experience
Discovery Cove
Disney's Hollywood Studios
Fun Spot Action Park
Gatorland & Gator Gully Splash Park
Haunted Grimm House
Holy Land Experience
Kennedy Space Center
Magic Kingdom
Old Town
Ripley's Believe it or Not
SeaWorld Aquatica
SeaWorld Orlando
Silver Springs Nature Park
Typhoon Lagoon
Universal Studios Orlando & Islands of Adventure & Wet n' Wild Water Park

With so many things to do, don't feel that you have to cram every minute of your vacation day to get your money's worth. There is nothing wrong with relaxing and taking a breather along the way. Burdening yourself with an overwhelming schedule will leave you feeling like you need the vacation when you get back home from your trip.

Maximizing and optimizing your budget and trip does not mean doing everything imaginable under the sun. Pace yourself and spend some down time by the pool or indulging in other slower-paced activities. People often say that the only thing you really need to travel is money and a sense of humor. Enjoy your Florida Vacation!
