10 things to consider before your next Orlando holiday

Get the most out of your holiday

We know that there can be an overwhelming number of things to think about and prepare before and during your amazing trip to Orlando. To help you get the most out of your next holiday to the Sunshine State check out our list of the top ten things we think you should consider before you go, ensuring your experience is unforgettable for all the right reasons!

 
1. Book your Orlando park tickets before you go
If you want to save time and more importantly money then make sure you book your Orlando park tickets in advance of jet setting off on your holiday.  Our combo tickets have been designed especially for UK and Ireland customers to give excellent value for money and the option of 14 and 21 days park admission, which can not be purchased when you are in Florida. 
Buying your tickets in advance also means you will not have to queue at the theme park gates, giving you the best possible start to your Orlando adventure. 
 
 
 
2. Consider the season 
The theme parks in Orlando can get exceptionally busy at peak times of the year and also around new ride openings. Therefore if you have the luxury of being able to go at any time of the year then we would advise you to pick a time when attendance is lower, as crowds and queues are likely to be at a minimum, meaning you will be able experience the parks much quicker!
 
Lowest attendance
January (except News Year’s Day) until the third week in February 
Mid-September until US Thanksgiving week  
1st December until the week prior to Christmas 
 
Highest Attendance  
Presidents Week – Starts third Monday in February 
Mid-March until Late April (Spring Break) 
Memorial Day Weekend (24th&25th May) 
Mid-June until Mid-September  
Thanksgiving Day and Weekend 
Christmas week until New Year’s Day
 
 
 
3. Plan in advance 
No matter how spontaneous you are, turning up to Orlando without a plan is certain to cause you endless disappointment and may even result in you and your party missing out on some of the best bits that this Theme Park Capital has to offer.  Before you go we advise you to work out how many days you would like to spend at each park and which attractions you want to see most. 
 
If you are going to Walt Disney World, you can login to My Disney Experience and start reserving your FastPass+ selections for rides, Character Greetings, fireworks, parades and more from 30 days in advance of arriving at the Resort. Click here to discover more about FastPass+

5. Have an early start 
We recommend that you get up nice and early and get to the parks as soon as they open.  This not only will give you your money’s worth but will also allow you to get a head start, especially as quite often the gates open around half an hour before the official opening times.  If you are one of the early birds use your time wisely and go to the biggest and most popular rides first as these will attract the longest queues as the day goes on. 
 
 
6. Eat a BIG breakfast
This might seem like an obvious one, but having a big breakfast before you get to the parks can really improve your day!  It will give you more energy and keep you and your kids (if you are travelling with any) going for longer which means you should last right through to lunch without spending extra money on mid-morning snacks.  Food doesn’t come cheap in the Orlando parks and this little tip could really save you a lot of money, especially if you are going to be there for over a week. 
 
 
 
7. Don’t be a sheep and follow the crowd
Do your research on the parks before you go and work out the normal flow of the crowds for your desired park, as the majority of people will head in one direction.  Be smart and make sure you do the reverse.  This means that most people will finish their day on the rides you started on and you should find you have less waiting time.  
 
 
 
8. Remember all the essentials 
There are a few must haves that we believe you should definitely remember to bring into the parks. 
 
Bottle of water – you should keep hydrated as you travel around the parks 
Wear comfortable shoes – Don’t underestimate how big the theme parks are and the distances that you will have to cover during your trip, therefore the right shoes is a must! 
Suncream – Make sure you apply this in the morning before you hit the park and also remember to pack a spare bottle for later on in the day, especially if you are going to be hitting the water parks, as it can get extremely hot in Florida especially in the summer months. 
Camera – You should expect to take lots of pictures so be prepared and don’t forget to take your camera, extra memory cards and even the charger.  You don’t want to miss out on capturing that special moment on your holiday!
Bring some small snacks – This will be important especially if you are responsible for lots of little mouths and could save you lots of money as food and drink within the parks does not come cheap. 
 
 
9. Plan break days
Allow your body time to rest and recharge its batteries so that you are fit and ready to conquer the more demanding days that Orlando has to offer.  This is especially important if you plan to be in Orlando for a week or more. There are loads of more relaxing activities for you to get involved in but one of our favourites is Discovery Cove where you can choose to have a swimming adventure with dolphins or simply enjoy being in a paradise of rocky lagoons surrounded by lush landscaping, tropical reefs, winding rivers, a resort-style pool complete with waterfalls, and white-sand beaches.  
 
 
 
10. Take your time
Phew…so you have managed to get everyone out to Orlando safe and sound, now our advice for you is to not jump in too fast and rush around the parks, but instead take your time, enjoy and try not to do everything in one day. The theme parks are huge and if you try to conquer everything too quickly you will get tired, irritable and will ultimately only hold yourself back from having the best possible time.  
 
And remember you can always come back again...
