Most people save all year for the ultimate summer vacation to Orlando, Florida. But summertime is sweltering in Central Florida and the crowds at theme parks can be unbearable. Take my advice: Visit in the fall. The crowds are usually smaller and the weather is more comfortable but still sunny and warm enough to enjoy Orlando’s water parks. It’s non-peak season, so you are more likely to find deals at some Orlando attractions.
SeaWorld Orlando. It pays to visit Orlando theme parks during the week. SeaWorld Orlando is offering weekday (Monday through Friday) tickets for $65 — a savings of $30. The tickets are valid for one year from the date of purchase.
Aquatica Orlando. Visit the theme parks in the morning, and then head over to Aquatica Orlando to cool off. The waterpark is offering a deal when you visit after 2 p.m. For $56, you can visit as many times as you want through December 31, 2014 (as long as it’s after 2 p.m.).
Wet ‘n Wild Orlando. If you plan to stay in Orlando for a couple weeks, Wet ‘n Wild Orlando offers a multi-day pass starting at $46. You can enjoy unlimited visits to the water park during your stay for up to 14 consecutive days.
Cirque du Soleil. Treat yourself to an evening like none other at Cirque du Soleil in Orlando with a mesmerizing ticket price of $49. Tickets are for Category 4 seating and are available Tuesday through Saturday, now through Sept. 13 and Sept. 23 through Sept. 27, 2014.
Orlando’s Magical Dining Month. Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month gives you a chance to experience some of Central Florida’s best restaurants for an affordable price. More than 75 restaurants feature prix fixe dinner menus for $33 through the end of September. Look up participating restaurants by dining district. Some of the restaurants featured include The Capital Grille, Seasons 52, Morton’s The Steakhouse, The Melting Pot, Luma on the Park and K Restaurant.
Disney World hotels. Save up to 30% on select Disney Resort hotels this fall. To find the best deal, plan your stay Oct. 4 through Nov. 25 or Nov. 29 through Dec. 23, 2014.
