The book

Overview

Even though most American families will make at least one pilgrimage to Orlando, too many of them end up spending far more than they have to for their vacations.  This book initiates you into the world of savvy discount travel shopping, from finding the very lowest airfares to booking theme park tickets through the right sources so you pay less.

The book has a complete breakdown of every major theme park's attractions—their best seats, their histories, how to evade their long lines—with opinionated advice on which to hit and which to skip, depending on your taste and age (and the age of your kids).

We'll explore lodgings in depth, starting with the best theme-park-based hotels for your money. We also name reputable renters of palatial digs such as full houses and condos located less than two miles from Disney, which come with screened-in pool, free internet, private game rooms and more—all for less than you'd spend on a cramped hotel room.

Featuring:

  • In depth itineraries to help you make the most of your time in the theme parks
  • The "Other" Orlando that most visitors miss, from behind the scenes tours showing you how the "magic" is made to a nearby, all-psychic community to a nature preserve with 3000 year old secrets
  • Money saving tips on shopping, meals, attraction tickets and much more

And avoiding wallet drain for meals in Orlando is only half the battle. We cover secret, lesser-known local restaurants as well as give readers a useable, fun strategy for the best theme park meals.
