Pointe Orlando is Orlando’s little secret fun and entertainment spot and is a perfect place to take Dad on Father’s Day. Treat Dad to all the things he wants such as enjoying a live band, playing soldier at the new indoor combat sports facility, laughing at the next hot local comedian, watching the new movie he’s been dying to see, or even enjoying the art of fine shopping. The new Main Event Entertainment spot is a great place to enjoy quality time with Dad. Challenge Dad to a game of bowling. Then let him devour delicious food or enjoy a drink at the full-service bar. Pointe Orlando truly offers everything Dads could want. Best part? It’s all in one place.
Most visitors to Orlando spend long days at the theme parks or traveling to coastal destinations. Regardless where you visit, buying meals and snacks on the road can take a bite out of vacation funds. Meal plans at the theme parks help cut costs, but if you are traveling with a family, the cost can still be a bit too much.
In an effort to help get the creative juices flowing, here are a few tips to help cut dining costs:
Eat breakfast. We’re not talking just a bagel and coffee, no. We’re talking a full meal—load up on carbs. Our breakfast buffet with a healthy variety of food will satisfy you for a long time. You should easily make it until noon before you’re hungry again.
Pack your own lunch. There are plenty of stores within walking distance where guests can pick up items to pack sandwiches or other lunch items. Theme parks won’t allow coolers, but you can certainly pack your meals and stow them in your backpacks. Our own Lite Bite Mini-Market offers cold sandwiches perfect for lunch.
Know your thirst. Our bodies usually can’t tell the difference between dehydration and hunger. It is very easy to mistake the two, so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. It’s great that water fountains are everywhere! Another tip for quenching thirst is to purchase a souvenir cup. Some parks offer discounts on refills for those reusing a souvenir cup. Depending on how many refills you get, each drink could end up costing around $1—big savings!
Budget for snacks. It’s great to pack a snack, but honestly you’re going to want to buy something while you’re out. Consider limiting yourself to maybe one treat per person, per day, at the theme parks. Snacks can cost anywhere from $2 to $9 depending on what you select and where you are. Limiting your intake to one snack will both satisfy your craving and keep money in your pocket.
Be sure to check theme park websites for more dining information before your visit because one vacation expense you can’t always escape is food. At least you can plan appropriately and save some money.
Great location on International Drive. Easy walking distance to Walgreens, Pointe Orlando and plenty of bars and restaurants. The hotel is great value as a base for a holiday where you spend the most of your time at the theme parks. Our room was cleaned every day to a high standard. Fresh towels everyday and the beds are comfy. It’s handy to have the microwave and fridge to keep water bottles cool. Fifteen minutes to Disney Springs and about the same to Universal. A great base!
Another fantastic stay
We have just returned from a two week stay here, we have been staying here for many years. It is still as fantastic as ever. The front desk staff are always helpful and the bar staff Dave, Oscar, Cyrl and Ricardo are always pleasant and helpful. We also enjoyed seeing Mark again who is a fabulous credit to your company and does a fantastic job at karaoke nights. We look forward to staying with you again soon.
