Enjoying a theme park is an oxymoron to some people. I
know this because some of my friends just hate them. I
personally love theme parks of all sorts, so if you are
looking for cheap vacation ideas
and tips for Orlando theme parks, read on for some
input that may be of value.
First, make sure that all parties in your group have a
working cell phone. It's easy to get lost! These places are
quite large and can be confusing if you have never been
before. Then again I have been to the theme parks many many
times and I still get lost. If some members of your group
do not have a mobile phone, it is a wise investment to
purchase a set of walkie-talkies. This is especially good
for small children. You need a way to keep up with each
other. It also works well for splitting up to visit
different areas of the parks.
You'll see a lot of folks toting backpacks around.
Wondering what they are carrying? Most likely food and
snacks for the kids (and adults too for that matter). Why?
Food is outrageous at most of the theme parks so bring
along something to snack on throughout the day and then eat
at an off-park restaurant for dinner. As far as cheap
travel Orlando tips, that one will save you quite a bit.
Another tip, if your room has a small refrigerator,
consider keeping some snacks in there along with any
leftovers from your meals. You can stop in at the hotel
room for a quick bite to eat and replenish your energy in
the middle of the day.
Most of the area water parks have picnic areas and allow
coolers. So a cheap travel Orlando tip for
these themed water parks would be simply to bring along a
cooler full of food for the day. Another tip is to arrive
later in the day as many parks offer a discount for
arriving after the peak hours. And as a benefit, you can
avoid some crowds and the heat.
Don't waste your time stopping at every roadside
T-shirt-selling tourist trap along the way when heading out
to the parks in the morning. These cheap souvenirs are
liable to break or tear up before they even make it back
home with you. Save your money and opt for one single
well-made souvenir from one of the theme parks instead.
Disney has some nice stores, especially Epcot. You can shop
to your heart's content.
