I went to Orlando, Florida back in January for a week and it was amazing. The most perfect time of year to go in my opinion, the weather was incredible, no humidity but still sunshine and the queues in the parks weren’t too long or none at all! In this blog I’m going to list what we did while we were there day to day for any of you who plan on going for the first time and are only going for a week and not the typical 2 weeks. It’s very possible to still get everything done 🙂 Don’t forget to scroll and look at some pics from my trip!
Where to stay?
We stayed on International’s Drive in StaySky suites, it was such a nice hotel. We had an apartment with our own kitchen, living room and big room. There is lots of hotels on International Drive and they vary in price and quality etc but it’s a great place to stay as it’s close to everything by car and loads of restaurants around and things to do when you are not at the parks.
How to get around?
If you are staying in International Drive then you can walk to restaurants easily within distance of you hotel, just know that if you are walking you may get some strange looks from people in cars. It’s something I noticed a lot while I was there and not many people do walk around International Drive unless they are tourists!
To get around the city of Orlando and go to shopping malls, parks etc then I would definitely recommend downloading Uber. We don’t have Uber here in Ireland and I cannot understand why it was so easy to use and so cheap!! It was very handy for us to use as a big group rather than looking around and waiting for a taxi big enough to take us we could just pop in what car we wanted and got in usually within 3 minutes!Continue reading
