One of the biggest headaches, if not THE biggest one at the Walt Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks, is waiting in line for the rides. Everyone is different in respect to their tolerance of waiting in line.
Orlando is home to some of the nation’s finest practice facilities. The Faldo Institute and Orange County National offer more than just practice tees and greens. The landing areas on their driving ranges resemble true targets and hazards that are found on courses. Tremendous short-game practice areas help better players fine-tune that key part of their games. But the crowning jewel in Orlando are the courses. From top to bottom, Orlando offers the best quality golf of any destination in the world. Nearly every exit off I-4 leads directly to a memorable golf experience, regardless of which side of Orlando you are on.
The obvious answer? Theme parks. Orlando is the world’s No. 1 vacation destination, and the incredible collection of theme parks plays the leading role.
This little girl (whom was played by Linda Blair) scared adults all around the country so bad that they probably couldn’t sleep for a while. She spits vomit, violent, talks cruel and worst of all her head spins around. The Exorcist is a tale about demonic possession that still has affects to audiences till this day.
Let’s start with shopping, spa, banking and medical services. MCO boasts a world class mall right in the terminal. Many travelers completed their Christmas shopping this past year pre or post flight. Easy to understand with retailers that rival the Mall of America’s from Brookstone, Disney, Universal Studio Singapore Tickets, Sea World, Erwin Pearl to L’Occitane there is truly something for every taste and budget.
If hiking is your thing, Griffith Park has nearly 4500 acres of hiking trails. There are many hiking groups that meet at Griffith Park. You can hike into Griffith Park and see the old zoo or you could hike up to the Hollywood sign and feel like a star. We also have a newer zoo that features animals from around the world.
The bottom line? Even if you are lucky enough to score two free tickets, after you assume a decent 2 night hotel accommodation, meals, Express Plus Pass, and a ton of green aloe gel that becomes necessary due to excessive sunburn (I knew I forgot something!), figure to part with $300. This does not take any travel into consideration either, and with $3 a gallon and higher on the horizon, coupled with the intermittent, violent thunderstorms that plague Central Florida this time of year, ask yourself a final question: Is now the time to update my queue on Netflix?
