Attractions In Orlando
Want to travel to Florida, however, you can’t find any cheap things to do in Orlando? We will uncover many new Orlando attractions that you can visit and enjoy without ever going to Disney World.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Disney World. It is an extremely fascinating place to visit. However, with the recent ticket price increase and the price of a Disney Annual Pass skyrocketing, it makes one look for alternative places to take the kids in Orlando, Florida.
Fun Spot OrlandoOne of my “off Disney” places to go is Fun Spot Orlando. I would highly recommend this “mini” theme park. It has grown over the years to a really nice place to spend the day. It is conveniently located at the intersection of International Drive and Kirkman Road. Literally minutes and walking distance from hundreds of hotels on International Drive.
Fun Spot Orlando has it all. There are thrill rides for the older members of your family including 2 roller coasters. There are plenty of rides for the younger members and a great little eating place for lunch or dinner. If you get too hot or it begins to rain, just head inside to the arcade for some added fun.
Another nice place to visit is Old Town. Located in Kissimmee, FL and near most of the hotels and resorts in the area. Old Town has shops, restaurants, rides, and an arcade. There is a variety of choices for dining from snacks to a full service restaurant. Check our website often for special events. They have weekly car shows and on the weekends will feature a popular band for entertainment.
If you simply must go to Disney, here is a way to visit Disney on a budget. This suggestion does not include one of the Disney World theme parks. This article is placing emphasis on visiting Orlando on a strict budget. Take the family over to Disney Springs. (formerly known as Downtown Disney) At the time of this writing, parking is complimentary. Head to the bus depot and get on one of the buses that will take you to the main transportation stop for Disney World. Jump on the monorail and take a ride around the park. You can get off at any or all of the beautiful Disney hotels and look around. Then get back on the bus and head back to Disney Springs and spend the afternoon strolling thru the shops, listening to the entertainment, and getting a bite to eat at some of the most creative restaurants that exist. In my opinion, this is a unique way to show the kids some Disney without paying over $100.00 for each ticket.
