Theme parks provide an intangible thrill. For some of us, it’s a thrill and memory we’ll never forget. From childhood when we took our first steps to meet Mickey Mouse for the first time, to squeezing our parent’s hand all the way up to the top of the highest roller coaster drop; our experiences at theme parks are some of our strongest memories.
It’s no secret that Orlando is one of the world’s top theme park destinations, so go prepared to make the most of the experience. Bringing our own children for the first time to one of our beloved attractions or experiencing a theme park for the first time ourselves is quiet a whirlwind. We’ve listed a few travel tips to make your excursions to the theme parks the best possible.
Purchase tickets before you go. This should ensure you’re getting the best price possible.
Ask our Guest Relations about complimentary transportation options, shuttle schedules, and their favorite theme park features. (Hint: We offer complimentary, scheduled shuttles to Universal Orlando® Resort, SeaWorld®, and Wet ‘N Wild®.)
Designate a meeting spot for all large groups and family members. Kids may want to get lost in theme parks, but parents don’t want to spend their time looking for their kids.
Head to the parks early. Arrive early and avoid the mid-day crowds. While everyone is basking in the heat of the day, take an extended lunch outside of the parks or head to your hotel for an afternoon nap.
Once you’re re-energized and ready to take on the rest of the theme park, go back in the evening for some of the most specular night time shows and firework displays.
The most important tip of all, have fun and make some of the best memories!
