Sugar, spice and everything nice! That's how I would like to describe Orlando. From DC, we flew to flew to Orlando. Now the flight itself was an interesting story. We had a connecting flight to Orlando. However, the airline overbooked the first flight and ran out of space for us even though we reached the gate well before time. Instead, they offered us a direct flight at the same cost and we reached much sooner than expected. That helped us get in some well-deserved rest.
While traveling to Orlando on a budget, one must bear a couple of things in mind. First, the hotel/motel/home stay you pick should offer a free hop on-hop off service to all the major parks and resorts. This way its easier to save money otherwise spent on outrageously expensive cabs. Second, book rooms with a basic grocery store nearby and with an in-room kitchen/kitchenette. This would save the expenditure on buying snacks when visiting the parks. Saving every penny helps in Orlando because even though I love the parks, they are ridiculously expensive!
