Check Out Aquatica Orlando

A highlight stop for many travelers to Orlando is SeaWorld. While this park is a great place to get up close to fascinating marine creatures in abundance, it also hosts its own thrilling water park known as Aquatica Orlando. Operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Aquatica Orlando is a family-friendly water park that’s brimming over with pools, attractions, and rides to check out while you’re in town. The park’s attraction known as The Reef Plunge is a particularly appealing option as water park guests can slide down a clear tube that gives a prime view of marine creatures swimming overhead! Weightlessness can be experienced on Aquatica Orlando’s Karekare Curl while the Riptide Race gives water park-goers a chance to compete for top speeds on the slides. When you’ve had your fill of waves pools and splash pads, be sure to make time to enjoy on-site shopping and dining options at Aquatica Orlando too. Guests here will find it’s simple to let an afternoon of fun turn into a full day of water park adventures.

Experience Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

Travelers making their way to Orlando are likely to have some Disney-focused fun on their must-do list. While the magic of Disney is inevitably appealing, those who love water parks as well won’t want to miss a chance to spend a day exploring Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. An ideal destination for families, Typhoon Lagoon lets visitors of all ages enjoy everything from splash pads and wave pools to lazy rivers, rides, attractions, and more! Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is open every day of the week between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm making it a convenient addition to an already packed Orlando itinerary. Customizing your time at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is made simple with options to book private beach shacks, cabanas, and umbrellas during a visit. Beach shacks can be reserved for small groups and large groups of visitors alike. While you’re reserving your cabana, go ahead and purchase an advance ticket for the water park’s after-hours glow party which is sure to thrill as well! During a water park visit this way, Typhoon Lagoon guests can make the most of incredible rides and attractions ranging from the surf pool and crush n’ gusher to the Ketchakiddee Creek area which is ideal for little ones looking to splash around. While the water-based fun is sure to delight, it’s easy to work up an appetite at Typhoon Lagoon too. Fortunately, guests will find this park has a variety of savory and sweet options to enjoy while they’re here. The Leaning Palms is a perfect option for a mouthwatering lunch while Go Slurpin’ serves up wine, beer, and handcrafted cocktails upon request. If you make time for a stop at Happy Landings Ice Cream, you and your crew can treat yourselves to cones, smoothies, and shakes galore!

Make time for Universal’s Volcano Bay

For all the Disney fun that Orlando offers up, it’s just as exciting to set aside some time on the itinerary for a trip to Universal. Another highlight destination within the greater Orlando area, Universal provides guests with access to behind-the-scenes movie fun that’s one-of-a-kind. Universal is also home to Volcano Bay water park which is a delight when temperatures rise alongside the desire to find even more fun to be enjoyed! Volcano Bay is named for the artificial volcano that acts as the water park’s centerpiece, making this stop easy to identify from the moment you step through the gates. Around the center volcano, guests will find plenty to enjoy in the way of splash pads, wave pools, water cannons, water slides, lazy rivers, and more. If you’re more in the mood to sit back and watch the excitement, there are plenty of lounge areas readily available too. The park is open daily from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm and options to rent private or family-focused cabanas help personalize each and every visit. Whether you purchase a pass exclusively for the park or wrap up the cost into a multi-day Universal pass, it’s well worth your time to check out while you’re in town. From the Krakatau Aqua Coaster to the tranquility of the park’s Waturi Beach—there’s no shortage of options for fun waiting to greet you here.

The water park is themed around a 200-foot tall volcano named “Krakatau” and features a technology-driven experience with a wearable wristband called TapuTapu.

According to Forbes, Orlando is the most affordable destination in the U.S. The warm weather, theme parks, water parks, and resorts make Orlando a perfect vacation destination for a family getaway.

When traveling on a budget, we have a few tips to help you stay on track. First, we recommend planning your travels ahead of time. Typically, during the summer season, you can expect the flight prices to be high. If you can travel during the off-season, spring or fall, you can see instant savings. Secondly, decide which attractions are most important for your family to visit. If traveling with children, it is likely Walt Disney World will be first on the list. Many attractions offer special offers for Canadian guests. Walt Disney World is offering a Special Ticket Pricing from now through May 20th, 2017 for Canadian Residents. There are more attractions that offer discounts just for Canadians, such as, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye, and more! We also recommend Kissimmee Guest Services to our guests looking for discounted park tickets.
