What to do? Where to Stay? Orlando’s Best Bang for your Buck!

The first question you have to ask yourself is what theme parks do I want to visit. The thing is to keep your costs down you are probably better off picking one group of theme parks per visit. The big tourism players in Orlando offer EXCELENT bang for your buck if you purchase multi day tickets. You can save alot by employing this methology to the equation.

Walt Disney World offers by far the most choices on their multi park deal but the cost will be the highest. One thing to note the very best ticket deals Disney offers are only valid for a limited amount of time. To save money if you go this route stay on US 192 Kissimmee. Trust me the savings on dining alone will be significant versus staying on property. Pick a hotel/motel that offers free shuttle service to the Walt Disney World Resort and save the fifteen dollar a day parking costs. The Kissimmee 192 resort area offers a vast number of lodging choices including the Gaylord Palms on the high end. Pick your lodging in Kissimmee by location beacause between S.R. 535 and I-4 amost any motel you pick in Kissimmee Hwy. 192 will be within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and much more. One more tip try and pick a hotel/motel with airport service.

I will be more than happy to help you make your choices for a fun, affordable trip.

Next time I will cover Universal Studios and Sea World as alternatives to Disney.

Orlando Tourists Best Bet For Nightclubing

Disney has withdrawn from the market closing it’s nightclubs instead adding shopping and restaurants in the former nightclub hot spot Pleasure Island. The lack of synergy between nightclubing and Disney’s large family audience  and also experiencing some problems with gang activity which lead to crime. Sorry to see it go but it’s closing helped Orlando’s other two major nighclub areas thrive and jive at City Walk at Universal Orlando or downtown Orlando.

Visiting City Walk is definitly more expensive and family friendly then the edgy downtown Orlando nightclub district. So unless you’ve got kids going with you my recomendation is the downtown Orlando night club district. Hip restaurants and lounges dot a 5 or 6 block area along with many swank nightclubs. A new movie venue has recently opened in the district. The cinema offers unique food and beverage choices in tune with the surrounding district.

The shopping choices are much more divergent downtown you can get a tatoo, discover a new artist but there are no typical tourist souvenir shops that’s for sure!

Fabulous Weather and Small Crowds Now is Best Time to Visit Orlando

It’s absolutly beautiful in Orlando all week high up to 80 degrees lows in the 50’s Chamber of Commerce weather. Visit before Thanksgiving or before Christmas for low airfares, cheap lodging and small crowds at attractions make this a perfect time to visit. If you can getaway soon you WILL save alot and enjoy your trip more because of the weather and the small crowds.

Spotlight Orlando Area Attraction Capone’s Dinner & Show

My obvious choice for dinner shows in the Orlando area is Capone’s Dinner & Show. Capone’s has been my baby since 1992. Me and my management team have provided a guest experience in tune with the times. A lot has changed in that time. Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede came and went as did Tony and Tina’s Wedding. Many other concepts have come and gone. Why does Capone’s Dinner and Show mange to remain relevant in a market that so many have failed, including a concept in Orlando that copied our Speakeasy concept? The single largest reason is our base of repeat business and referrals.

Capone’s has prospered through good times and bad. In 2008 we had ourselves shopped numerous times to help determine areas of weakness and found our food hit and miss. So we hired a new chef with a strong background in Italian cuisine. We also made many upgrades to our facility and did many renovations over the past two years. The theatre looks great plus we added new light and sound systems.

The show is really funny and guest comments have called it a hit. We opened the sequel to the original show in 2007 and while main characters Miss Jewel, Bunny-June, Fingers Salvotorio all return. We have added hysterical new characters including Buggs Moran, Honey & Sunny. There’s a good bit of back and forth between characters, mobsters and our guests.  Flashy new costumes and a totally different note than the original. With out giving up too much I’ll just say you’ll be laughing and singing on the ride home.
