Book a Hotel Room

Over and over again people are always asking us about the Best time to Go visit Orlando. Taking advantage of the theme parks is a personal thing, and some people deal with summer better than others. If you can handle the heat, that is the best time to go for sure and Book a Hotel Room. The disney hotels are the best of all, and with the longer summer daylight hours, you get the best of everything. Long days means you have more time to do everything, and plenty of Swimming Pool pleasures. We like to take a swim in the morning before breakfast. It's nice to burn a few calories and have some fun before you start hitting the Food Court. During the summer the prices are cheaper at Pop Century. We love to save money when we book the hotel rooms, so we have left over cash for the great food choices. I love that Boardwalk Bakery over near Epcot for the Mickey Mouse macaroons.

Trip Planning

I was planning to arrive around 6pm, but can come tomorrow just as well. Whatever you think is fine with me just as long as we make check in at the hardrockhotelorlando.com hotel. It is a pretty day here and the weather for the vacation in central Florida looks outstanding for us, plus the big waves of Melbourne Beach! Yeah to the waves, and I will go knee high up! If we have time it would be good to eat at the whitewoodgrill.com cafe downtown Orlando.
