  • Best Time to Go

    Those who want to enjoy beautiful weather should book their Orlando vacations for the early fall instead of the summer. High temperatures during September and October are still in the mid-80s, but the risk of afternoon thunderstorms is much lower than in the summer. Early fall is also a great time to plan Orlando travel, since it is a relatively slow tourism period in the area. Hotel rates during fall and winter are usually lower than the peak rates of summer, so travelers may take advantage of cheap accommodations.

  • Express Pass

    Purchase an Express Pass at Universal Orlando Resort to get access to thrill rides without having to wait in line.

  • Downtown Disney

  • Ripley's Believe It Or Not

    From shrunken heads and the smallest car in the world to a portrait of Beyoncé made entirely of candy, Ripley's is an icon to the world of weird and wacky. Tickets are around $20 on-site, but if you purchase them online in advance, you can score a discount.

  • Cocoa Beach

    An hour's drive east of Orlando will take you to Cocoa Beach, one of the most happening beach towns in Florida. Swim and sunbake, or get more active with a kayak tour. If you get hungry, there are plenty of cafés and outlet stores to satisfy, as well as clubs and bars for the rowdier crowd. For the optimum budget-friendly Orlando vacation experience, stick to the beach activities and small cafes.
