Theme parks, amusement parks, attractions, call them whatever you want. The thrills, the sounds, the excitement that comes with spending the day at Orlando’s most famous theme parks is the ultimate Orlando get away. If you are planning on spending your vacation in Orlando, you not only want the best prices on discount tickets, exciting adventures, and fantastic shows, but need the basics to “Know Before You Go” !!
Being in the business for nearly thirty years, I often tell customers who come into our store front at 8000 International Drive a few tips on how to make the most of their Orlando vacation without falling into the typical tourist traps that so many complain about. Here are some of the fundamentals to get you started, then it’s all up to you to enjoy!!
1. Do Your Research
This is probably the best recommendation that will save you a lot of hassle. Go online and investigate the information on each park on the web. This is where you’ll find opening times and information—like height restrictions—about the rides. If you have kids, knowing in advance what rides you child can and can’t go on will save you a lot of time and energy.
Looking for the best deals is an absolute must!! Know Before You Go, takes pride in the fact that we are one of the most competitive of all the re-sellers with Discount Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld tickets! If you’re looking, checkout our site and compare for yourself – our prices are guaranteed.
2. When to Go to Avoid the Crowds
The absolute best times to avoid visiting the parks are Saturdays and Mondays. Saturdays are the busiest day of the week at a park. Mondays are often the second busiest and busier than Sundays since many visitors believe Sundays are the busiest. The least crowded days to visit are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Holidays can also be surprisingly good days to visit because people expect it’ll be overly crowded, but sometimes that’s not true.
3. What you need to bring with you
I suggest packing extra clothes for everyone in your party. Accidents happen, rides can be extra-wet, and temperatures can be sizzling. Packing a change of clothes can help keep everyone comfortable and happy. I also recommend bringing your own rain ponchos, because they cost a fortune at the park. Understanding the cost of the lockers at the park will help you minimize the amount of stuff you need to carry. But one thing you shouldn’t be without is sunscreen. If one member of your party gets severe sunburn, your entire vacation can be ruined.
A stroller is indispensable if you have small kids. Even if your child is past strollers on your usual outings, amusement parks are long days with lots of walking. A stroller will help if little legs get tired and patience gets stretched a little thin. It will save a lot of money in the long run. Remember to do the same with wheelchairs.
Next to not forgetting your tickets, the most important thing to remember to bring to the theme parks would be your camera to capture all the magical moments!
The idea is to make the most out of your vacation. You have the power to make it the best one ever!
