Places to visit in Orlando
Yes there are SO many fun places to visit in Orlando. The pictures above aren’t even the ones you may think of. Of course everyone needs to visit Disney World, Sea World, and Universal but the resorts they offer there have so much to do for families as well!
When I travel I try to do it as economically as possible, use travel guides, and find discounts on theme parks too. I used Getaway today to book my hotel on this trip to save a bit on my stay. Had I brought my kids though I could’ve benefitted from the discount theme park tickets they offer too!
I stayed at Summer Bay Orlando by Experia Resorts which made me sad my kids weren’t with me because of all the great things they had for families. Even though I wasn’t there to enjoy that portion, the room was fantastic and so roomy!
With a living area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom it would’ve been big enough for all of us. It was perfect for the 3 nights in between my conference days. I went to the store and bought a few things to cook which was nice since I wanted a quiet night in. That’s a great way to save a bit of money too!
The conference itself was at the Gaylord Palms Resort which has a hotel inside as well and lots of family fun activities but I was most impressed with this structure in the middle near the restaurants there, just gorgeous! After the second day at their convention center I had a bit of a break. I just had to hit the shops at Disney World to get my girls a few things.
It was a fun jam packed few days of exploration for me. This was just a 3 day visit, but I was amazed at just how many places to visit in Orlando there were. If you have kids with you’ve got to check out all the attractions there.
