Plan Your Orlando Vacation on a Budget

The Sunshine State awaits, where you can vacation in Orlando without busting your budget. Regardless of what you may presently think, "O-town" is a perfect Florida destination for the couple or family looking to vacation without having to dip into savings. Although the city offers many family friendly activities, there are plenty of "grown up" things to choose from that fall into budget stipulations, and plenty of Orlando hotels from which to choose.

Getting to Orlando on a Budget

Unless you live in Florida, Georgia or along the Gulf Coast, a quick car ride to Orlando is probably out of the question. If you're packing up the Winnebago and heading down with the family...well, that's a different story, but if you're hoping to save money by driving, try traveling with many individuals. With rising gas prices, flying a long distance can often save you money, once you factor the cost of food and overnight stays.

Orlando International Airport happens to be one of the most popular travel hubs in the U.S. As a result, it is fairly easy to secure a great price on a flight to Orlando, regardless of the departure city. Considering that nearly every major airline frequents Orlando on a daily basis, some proper planning should prevent you from paying vast proportions. A willingness to comparison shop through different airlines and all-inclusive travel sites are key to staying on, or under budget.

Having Fun in Orlando on a Budget

Once again, call the Internet to the rescue. Although many deals are available, people still rarely take advantage of everything at their disposal. Whatever Orlando attractions you want to see, there's an excellent chance you will find online discounts and/or coupons that will help you stay tight to those budgetary constraints. Theme parks, attractions, hotels, motels, resorts, golf...you name it, you can find a discounted rate via the Internet.

Orlando's Theme Parks on a Budget

No, it's not your imagination -- the single day admission price to a theme park hardly fits into a budget. However, if you're unable to find a great discount online, consider multiple days at a park or series of parks offered by Disney or Universal. You'll find that multiple day tickets allow you to see more parks and fully enjoy your favorite attractions, while keeping you a little closer to your "entertainment" budget allotment.

Orlando offers something to every class of vacationer. By shopping around, you should have no issues in creating a great Orlando vacation on your current budget.
