If you’re coming to Orlando to visit Disney World or Universal Studios, you might be in luck! Both offer transportation to and from the airport to some of their resort hotels. There are also many cruise lines that offer transportation from the airport to Port Canaveral. If you’re staying off-resort, there are lots of options available to you. There are many taxi and ride-share services available at the airport, as well as shuttle vans, public transportation and Sun Rail rail service, which connects to many counties around the airport. Note that Sun Rail does not run on weekends or certain holidays. For full details on transportation options to and from the airport, visit the Orlando International Airport website.
Orlando is bustling with activity all year round, but there are times of the year when it’s a bit calmer – and cheaper. Visiting Orlando on the off-season means the parks will be less crowded, and you will save money on hotels as well. The off-season in Orlando is typically mid-January until early March, and September until early December. A good rule of thumb is to avoid the parks when school is out and try to book as far in advance as possible to save even more. If you want to explore Orlando outside of the big parks, you can look into getting a Go Orlando pass to save a bundle on attractions like the Kennedy Space Centre and LEGOLAND.
In Orlando it’s important to be prepared for rain or shine every day, because you’ll usually experience both! It’s typical for rain clouds to blow into town in the afternoon during the summer, and you don’t want your vacation to be ruined by a bad sunburn so be sure to pack your raincoat and sunscreen wherever you go. And don’t think that Orlando is just all about the theme parks – although it is the theme park capital of the world, it is also surrounded by nature. You don’t want to miss a tour through the saltwater marshlands or exploring some of the many canal-connected lakes.
