Always plan your trip ahead of time
You’ll want to maximize your time while visiting Orlando. Get tickets weeks or even a couple of months before your scheduled vacation. Also, avoid the weekend when you can. You can just stay in one of these hotels during the weekend and enjoy their amenities. On weekdays, go on theme park tours and have fun with the rides and food. You’ll need a whole day for each theme park. Get yourself a map so you don’t get lost in the park. Visiting Orlando soon? Scroll up for a list of the best hotels near Universal.
