  • 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

    Spend an evening strolling through Downtown Disney, an outdoor shopping and entertainment plaza at Walt Disney World.

  • Cirque du Soleil

    Attend the Cirque du Soleil show La Nouba for a breathtaking live acrobatic performance.

  • Walt Disney World

    If you will be visiting Walt Disney World, stay at one of the resort hotels to get free transportation and early park access.

  • Go Orlando Card

    Save on admission to nearly 50 area attractions by purchasing the Go Orlando card, which is available in single or multi-day passes.

  • Orlando highlights
  • Harry P. Leu Gardens

    These stunning gardens are a must for park lovers. Not only will you find thriving greenery and pretty blooms, but also a Butterfly Garden, art exhibitions and an on-site museum. Adult entry costs $6 and for kids under 18, it's only $2, and guided tours are a few dollars extra.

  • 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.

  • Uptown Altamonte

    Enjoy free concerts, theater performances and open-mic nights at the Eddie Rose Amphitheater and Cranes Roost Plaza in Uptown Altamonte. There's something on every night, so check online to find events that appeal to you.
