Which we do we go "
while evry one has there own way to see the parks, we found that following a few guide lines helps out...
First we found that once you get into the park it was better to go left than right, only because most people go right, Has anyone found it to be different? let me no...
Also going to the less popular rides first gets you on them and also keeps you from waiting in long lines...
Like in Universal studios Terminator 3-d, since it is to the right and one of the first attractions the wait was 1hour 45 minutes when we were there, if we had followed the ride guide and hit that ride at around 4-5pm there was hardley anyone in line.....
Just food for thought...... Losing my hat at the start of the Rocking Roller Coaster / aerosmith ride...
Go on it and you'll see....
Saving money on food at the Parks
Breakfast buffets/hearty breakfastsThe first couple of times we visited Orlando we discovered a really good breakfast buffet at Olive Garden (not sure if they still have it) where we ate heartily so we wouldn't have to eat too much mediocre overpriced food at Disney World. If you are staying in the Kissimmee area, I know I saw Shoney's, Perkins, Denny's, IHOP, all of which tend to have good food. Or check to see if your hotel has a breakfast buffet. Ours was included with our room, $6.99 otherwise, and it was pretty filling, we didn't need to eat until late afternoon.
Bring your own snacks Disney does not appear to have a "no outside food" policy, we saw people bringing in small coolers with snacks and drinks, you have to balance that off with having to lug it around the park all day, not a huge issue for people with strollers
Orlandos BEST Labyrinth
From here on I will list Orlandos BEST according to ORLANDO WEEKLY. Its meant to be both INFORMATIVE and FUN.
BEST PLACE TO RID YOURSELF OF DEMONS
The Labyrinth at the First Unitarian Church of Orlando
1901 E. Robinson St., (407) 898-3621
www.fuconet.org Instead of visiting an Orlando pub the next time the stress bug bites, you may want to try the ancient tradition of walking a labyrinth. Based on the 13th-century labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral near Paris, this local labyrinth is tucked beside the Unitarian church off Robinson Street. It's shaped in the design of a winding circular path; once inside the labyrinth, the meditation-minded carefully follow its spirals to the center, then back out again. The goal is to gain a greater awareness of the self and one's spiritual side. Either that or to make yourself really dizzy.
BEST SUB SHOP
BEST SUB SHOP
223 N. Magnolia Ave., (407) 423-0123
Next year we should skip the formalities and rename this category the "Primo Hoagies" award. There's no one else who competes. Primo's is simply that good, day in and day out. Try the Italian Market (swiss, cheddar and provolone) or the eggplant parmigiana or the Roman Empire (prosciutto, mozzarella, plum tomatoes) or the Milano (mozzarella, sweet peppers), and tell us we're not dead-on. Go ahead, we dare you.
CLOTHING: Remember to wear only LIGHT WEIGHT and comfortable clothes. Try not to wear extremely loose clothings as it may get entangled on some rides (per my personal observation).
SHOES: You will be doing more walking than you can imagine so only comfortable, well-ventilated and well broken-in footwear should be worn. They must also be able to handle getting wet!
We did soooo much walking that by the end of our 9th day, I had to literally crawl to the airport (my feet were hurting!!). I was probably suffering from 'foot shock' or something. DO NOT FORGET to bring along the following items with you to the theme parks:-
A waterbottle. The drinks in WDW cost a bomb! Did I ever mention that I spent US$20 alone on drinks (mineral water and soft drinks) a day?
Bring moist towelettes. For what? To cool you down, wipe the perspiration off your face & body...and clean some of the park dirt off at the same time! They come in foil packages. Open one and wipe your face & hands with it. Believe me, these moist towelettes have kept me from further sufferings under the STEAMING HOT Florida sun!
Sunblock lotion. Yes, POUR a whole bottle of it on yourself.... Surely you wouldn't want to look like a baked lobster at the end of the day, would you? I thought so... :-)
P.S. I'm sure you can tell (just by looking at some of my pics that I'd turned somewhat BROWN)... yes, almost charcoal brown towards the end of my stay in Orlando! :-(((
