Guys, beware of the street vendors that are offering free or discounted theme park tickets. These are just gimmicks that will cost you money and time. You will end up having to go on a 1.5 hours minute tour, rather than 2-3 hours, with someone trying to sell you a timeshare and they are relentless.
If you really want discounted tickets it’s best to use online resources. I recommend Ticket Mania.com and orlando tourest information center.
Planet Hollywood, Orlando is a restaurant to got to if you’re a movie buff. It offers entertainment and a pretty good meal for the money. It has large screens in the dining areas showing movie clips and large collection of movie memorabilia. Honestly, the food is not that good but i recommend their crab cakes with sautéed vegetables and home made mashed potatoes. One more thing, if you’re with your kids, this is the best place to dine! I highly suggest that you make reservations ahead of time.
HOURS OF OPERATION:
Restaurant : 11am – 1am
Bar: 11am – 2am
Merchandise Shop: 10:00am – 2am
In Orlando, if you need to re-fuel your car, you’ll be surprised if you’re new here for the procedure is different to the UK and Europe. You’ll experience waiting for hours for a fuel pump. And if you will pay cash in a gas station, you have to go into the gas station first and pre pay for the fuel. Reminder: Make sure you estimate the quantity correctly for they will not give you any refund. You can then use the fuel pump and put the amount you paid for into the tank. Tip: use a credit card so that you can pay at the pump, saves you time!
