Millions of people cant be wrong! And every year, tens of millions of tourists flock to Orlando Florida to enjoy the worlds best theme parks. But Orlandos more than just Disney and theme parks, the city is loaded with incredible restaurants, luxury resorts, and remarkable historic sites. When you plan your Orlando getaway, you wont miss a thing if you follow a few of these simple guidelines.

First, Come Prepared.

Orlando is renowned for its warm sunshine most of the year, but get a weather forecast for the exact dates that you plan to visit. You may need a light jacket, some rain gear or a ton of sunscreen depending the time of the year that you visit. In addition to the standard vacation stuff (toiletries, bathing suits, cameras, and personal medications), be sure to include the less remembered, but just as needed, things (a travel guide, insurance cards, a first aid kit, and an up-to-date GPS if you plan on driving).

Second, Think Strategically about Where to Stay.


Orlando has hotels and motels to fit every budget, from economy to truly luxurious 5 star resorts. The most popular hotels are Disney’s two most famous hotels (the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and the Animal Kingdom Lodge), but you can probably find a local hotel to match the brand on your hotel loyalty card. The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, The Westin Grand Bohemian, JW Marriott Orlando, Royal Pacific Resort, Villas of Grand Cypress, Grande Lakes, The Portofino Bay Hotel, and the Celebration Hotel have consistently ranked very well among visitors.

Third, Go Have All the Fun that You Can.

Kids of all ages will insist on seeing Disney World, and you should expect to spend 2 or 3 days at the expansive Disney parks, you can usually get a better deal by purchasing a 2 or 3 day all inclusive park pass or family pack. The next stop for most people is SeaWorld and perhaps Gatorland where the animals are the main attraction. Teenagers and adventurers will almost certainly want to experience the excitement of Universal Studios.

To make the most of a romantic evening at the parks, check out Downtown Disney’s Pleasure Island or Busch Gardens. For science and technology types, the Kennedy Space Center is the crme de crme, followed closely by the Orlando Science Center. For action or scenic beautiful, zip off to Fun Spot Action Park, Silver Springs, the Orange Tree Golf Club, and Wonderworks. For the golfers, there are ton of world class courses located within the Orlando area.

Fourth, Indulge Your Taste Buds

Its not a vacation without great restaurants and eateries! So complete the experience with food to remember. Enjoy familiar American foods or experience classic Asian or European dishes. Whatever you like to munch on, gobble down, or savor is here for the asking. Delight yourself at restaurants like the Crave, Hilton Bonnet Creek Restaurants, Texas de Brazil, Jack’s Place Restaurant, Oceanaire Restaurant, and Bergamo’s.

Food, fun and family memories thats what awaits you and your entire family in wonderful Orlando, Florida!
