Check out this great 1 day in Orlando itinerary. With a smart itinerary, you can explore the best attractions and make the most of your stay.

Choosing a park to visit in Orlando

To start this 1 Day in Orlando Itinerary, we remind you that it’s impossible to get to know an entire city in just one day. But you can make the most of your time by visiting some of the city’s most striking landmarks, which in this case are the parks. Choose one of them and enjoy:

Disney Parks

For most tourists, Orlando and Disney are synonymous. Some even think it’s essential to visit a Disney park in their lifetime, as they have attractions for all ages. There are four main parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.

A good outing is to visit the Magic Kingdom, the Disney park where Cinderella’s castle is located. It’s a magical place that is the subject of many photos taken by Orlando tourists. This is where you’ll find the classic characters from the Disney studio: Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Goofy and all the Disney princesses. A moment of nostalgia for childhood.

But for older visitors, Disney also has Hollywood Studios, an incredible space dedicated to Disney films as well as the great classic animations.

There are many themed attractions dedicated to the famous Star Wars franchise, as well as intense attractions such as the famous Aerosmith rollercoaster and the Tower of Terror, which will leave many adults on their legs.

Universal Parks

Another good option for adults in Orlando is to visit the Universal parks. This is a paradise for fans of Harry Potter, The Simpsons and many other Universal works.

You can venture out on the MIB Men in Black attractions or dare the Mummy-themed roller coaster. In addition, the park has many simulators, where you enter an enclosed space with screens and enjoy the sensation of an extreme adventure.

Universal’s Island of Adventure park is home to the spectacular Hogwarts Castle and the Harry Potter-themed express train, which connects Universal’s two parks. As well as the famous Hulk rollercoaster, which is extremely extreme and loved by fans.

IMPORTANT: The city of Orlando has many theme parks and attractions spread across various regions of the city. To get to visit everything, the ideal is to use a rental car. If you want, see our article here with all the tips on how to rent a good car at the lowest price.

What to do at night in Orlando?

As we continue with this 1 day in Orlando itinerary, it’s important to know that most of the parks don’t open until the evening, so you can take the opportunity to discover new places. A great place is Disney Springs, which simulates a mini city with various attractions such as shows, restaurants and stores with Disney products. It’s the ideal place to eat and buy souvenirs after a day at the park.

There is also Universal Citywalk. Similar to Disney Springs, this is a large center of Universal-themed restaurants and stores. However, if you like to shop for clothes at low cost, a good idea is to leave the parks and go to Orlando’s Premium Outlets. There’s one on International Drive, which is Orlando’s main avenue. So you can access it easily when you leave the park.

But remember that the Outlets close at 9 p.m. If you can’t leave the park early, it’s better to go to Disney Springs or Universal Citywalk.

How to save money at parks and attractions?

First of all, the first tip is to look for tickets in advance, not to buy them on the spot. That way, you can calmly research the best prices that are within your budget. In addition, there are many ticket combos that are much better value.

Disney Epcot

At the Disney complex, the ideal is to buy a ticket for all 4 parks, which is cheaper than excluding any of them (plus you can have the full experience of seeing the whole place). Another way to save money is to buy tickets to visit the parks for more days. In the end, the cost of the ticket per day is cheaper if you buy more days to go.

At Universal parks, you can experience a 2-week visit with the 3 Park Explore Ticket, which also allows access to the Volcano Bay water park. However, the best-selling ticket is the 2-day Park to Park ticket, which allows you to visit both Universal parks (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure).

Volcano Bay Universal Orlando

And to enjoy the famous Busch Gardens rollercoaster park or SeaWorld Park, the best way is to buy the combo that includes the 2 parks along with Aquatica. The price of the combo is only 30 dollars more expensive than a single ticket for just one of the parks.

Where can I buy the tickets for the lowest price?

We always use this website that sells all the tickets and tours. There is everything there and the price is always the cheapest. The only ticket that isn’t sold there is the Disney ticket, which for the time being is the cheapest place to buy it. But for all the other parks like Legoland, Busch Gardens, Sea World and Universal Orlando, this is the best site.

They also have a really cool free tour of all the cities. And it’s where we book the transfer to take us from the airport to the hotel. It’s cheaper and safer than taxis and Uber.

Saving money on NBA and NFL games

For sports lovers, you can’t miss a trip to the NBA and NFL games. It’s a unique experience to be able to enjoy the best of basketball and American soccer in the USA. As I said before, it’s a great idea to check out the ticket offers with our coupon and enjoy the best of American culture.

Ticket prices vary depending on the location you choose to watch the match. We always use this website, which offers great prices for all sports matches. We always use it and have had great experiences, as well as saving a lot.
