Afternoon Thrill Seekers,
Making the most of your Orlando Attraction Tickets is the key to any good Florida holiday. Today’s post is my personal guide on how to get the most out of your 14 days Florida tickets.
The guide below is based on our top selling ticket, the Orlando PassPort.
Day 1 – SeaWorld Orlando
SeaWorld is the first park I visited on my holiday and it set me up for the week, it offers a great balance of shows, roller coasters and animals.
Top Tip: You’ve got to give sitting in the “wet zones” at the SeaWorld shows a go, I haven’t laugh some much in ages… remember though they are called “wet zones” for a reason!
You will need at least a day to see the whole of SeaWorld, Orlando.
Day 2 – Universal’s Islands of Adventures
Personally one of my favourite parks, its home to both Marvel and Harry Potter so it will be busy.
Top Tip – Try to do Marvel in the morning and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the afternoon. People tend to rush straight to WWHP which leaves popular rides like Hulk and Spider-Man with shorter queues.
Islands of Adventure will take more than a day to fully explore it but its well worth returning later on in your holiday.
Day 3 – Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Your poor feet may have taken a bit of a pounding after 2 days of Thrill Rides so perhaps take a relaxing break by sepnding the morning by the pool.
When you feel up to it get yourself down to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, for the brave of heart get yourself on the Twilight Zone of Terror…
Top Tip – Take advantage of the Disney Fast Pass option that comes with the Orlando PassPort.
Day 4 – Busch Gardens, Tampa
There are two ways of getting to Busch Gardens in Tampa, firstly your Orlando PassPort includes free transportation to Busch Gardens via a shuttle bus alternatively you can drive there; usrentacar.co.uk offers cheap Florida Car Hire from as little as £17 per day fully insured which offer more flexibility than the bus.
Busch Gardens, in my opinion is the complete park; it has Thrill Rides like SheiKra and the newly opened Cheetah Hunt on the back drop of an animal fuelled safari, including Lions, Giraffes and Rhinos.
Top Tip: Check the animals out in the morning as the coasters are generally quieter in the afternoon.
Day 5 – Water Park
Trust me your feet will not be happy with you after your great day at Busch Gardens, so perhaps it best to visit one of the great Water Parks available with your Orlando PassPort. You can pick from either Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon or head to Orlando’s newest water park Aquatica!
The hardest part is deciding which to visit, perhaps this might help?
Day 6 – Epcot
Time for a bit of education, no not boring school type education but awesome Disney style education. Epcot is a massive 300 acre theme park dedicated to innovation and international culture.
Epcot is divided into two lands they are Future World and World Showcase, there are many highlights but their spectacular fireworks show is a must.
Top Tip – Try and visit Monday through to Thursday as generally its quieter than the busy weekends.
Day 7 – Universal Studios
Where movies meet the real world, Universal Studios is home to some of the most iconic images in film history including the terminator, men in black and the backwards roller coast The Mummy’s Revenge.
Top Tip – You must, must ride the Rip Ride Rockit…its awesome.
Day 8 – Water Park
Its time to rest your feet again, get yourself down to one of the water parks you haven’t visited yet, perhaps the two Disney water parks in one day!?
Day 9 – Animal Kingdom
Its off to see the animals again today at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, remember Orlando gets hot so get to the park early if you like your animals moving.They generally head for the shade during the day… they ain’t stupid… 🙂
Animal Kingdom is split in to seven lands they are Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and Dinoland USA. Walt Disney himself was a massive fan of animals and this park is really dedicated to that experience.
Top Tip – Make sure your camera is fully charged and has plenty of space left cos it will be full by the end of the day!
Day 10 – Get yourself down to your final Water Park
Its time to rest again, get yourself down to your final water park and relax…
The rest of your days I would advise revisiting the parks you either loved the most or didn’t get time to completely investigate….
There you have it… your complete 14 day holiday plan… all you need now is a holiday to get over your Theme Park holiday 🙂
