4 Saving Tips for Your Orlando VacationMarch 27, 2015
Something everyone can agree on is that saving money is always welcomed. If you are coming to Orlando for the vacation of a lifetime, we want to help you stretch your money and get the best bang for your buck. Here are a few things to be on the lookout for:
Hotel Suites: if you’re traveling with a family and for an extensive period of time, it really helps to have access to a kitchenette, or, even better, a fully equipped kitchen. I know cooking during vacation doesn’t appeal to everyone, but cooking a meal here and there can definitely save a family loads of money. Even if you just choose to cook breakfast foods, make spaghetti or quick meals, the kitchen will pay off in the end. You can also use the kitchen to stock up on cereal, milk, bread and the basic necessities to make quick sandwiches or wraps and take them to the theme parks.
Kids Eat Free: when eating out, scout the restaurants that offer “kids eat free” options. Many restaurants will have a day of the week and specific time frame where kids eat free or at least have huge discounts for kids like eating for $1.99 for example. This website lists many of the Orlando restaurants that offer such deals.
Free shuttle: stay at a hotel that offers free transportation to the parks. Even if you have a car, it’s cheaper to take a shuttle because parking at the parks is around $17 per car. You can weigh in the convenience of driving, but if the shuttle schedule works for your family, then you might as well use it!
Free entertainment: There are plenty of things you can do with the kids that will leave them entertained at no cost. Take them to play at the Lego Store in Disney Springs for example and they’ll spend hours building fun Lego toys and exercising their creativity. Watch the fireworks from a hotel room nearby Disney or from a restaurant nearby without having to pay for park admission.
