Hey,

I am actually going to Orlando on the 16th Sept 2011 for 2 weeks.

We have found a ticket for £409 that covers every park except Wet n Wild, so that includes Busch Gardens and Seaworld.

Can't remember which site it was on but will post once I find it


You be there the same time we going. We going on the 10ttheSept 2011

We booked the 14 Disney ticket but saving money gonna have the 2 park 14 day pass to US/IOA and for Sea World get it off there website $68 buy 1 day get another day free deal. Don't want to do the water parks as we got the 1s at Disney and Busch gardens gonna give it a miss next year as both times we went we had thunder storms so all the out door rides were closed for long periods of the day and its quite far to drive/go by coach. Just check the weather before you plan to go there.

Flight/hotel was £880 pp, had to book it to give us plenty of time to pay it :lol: as we would not have saved the money and then wouldn't have gone. Did this last year with Port Adventura and never ended up going as we kept spendin the money :roll:

If you want a good place to do some research I would suggest heading over to Trip advisor. When I planned my first trip to Orlando last year I found it so helpful. Honestly you can ask any question you can possibly think of and you will get an answer for it!
The Orlando forum is very handy lot of tips and tricks on there.

Or wait til this time next year, go on [url=http://www.halloweenhorrornights.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;]http://www.halloweenhorrornights.com[/url] and buy tickets there. You need the stay and scream where you are held inside the park. This means you get in about 3 hours before the general public get let in. But if we definitely go I will help you with the Halloween Horror Nights side :).

Thanks :D just had a quick look, even that site is quite scary! It says you purchase the stay and scream at the same time as your normal ticket but we have the flexiticket, can we still get the stay and scream upgrade?

your flex ticket will not let you in to halloween horror nights you have to pay on top again :( but worth it :)

once again if people would like to come to orlando we are booking in dec / jan then the sales go on so start saving for your plane and hotel :)

If you are planning to go for a more than one night then I would suggest purchasing the Frequent fear pass. This will allow you to stay and scream providing you have a valid ticket for the daytime.

We utilised stay and scream in 2009 with our frequent fear pass and it does not give you 3 hours inside the park before everyone else. Providing you are in the park for 4pm then when the park is closing you can go into a holding area where you have to wait for 30-60 mins for the park to get ready for HHN

Mazes in the holding open at around 6pm. By the time you do the mazes in the holding area the park will just be letting people in at the front gates of the park so you can get about two mazes done before it starts getting REALLY busy.
