Advice for Deals on Orlando Area Family Vacation

Hello All,

I am planning to take my family on our first vacation to the Orlando area. We are planning on probably going to Universal, and Sea World - haven’t decided on any other parks yet. (not Disney though)

Small family, early teen kids.


  • Iin the best ways to get deals on park passes and lodging (we don’t want a Mote 6, but don’t need a top end resort either - just something comfortable and clean to stay the night in)

  • If a single day in each park is enough to sufficiently see and do all (most) of the things in the parks.

  • Any suggestions for any cool/ less obvious things to do/see in the Orlando area.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions!

Start by watching the YouTube Videos on each Park.
Most are very good.
