We used the Florida Resident Discount, for about 15 percent off. go

Orlando Beach Hotel is a Dream Stay
We make it our home-base and prefer the two-bedroom, residence-style accommodations that sleep six comfortably. go

Bringing or renting bikes make the resort a lot of fun to explore. go

Hotels for Location

Resort stay with Disney's Mickey Mouse

What happy-smiles-fun we had, the hotel is super fun. We also tried Ripley's Believe It or Not over there at 8201 International Drive. That is a zany place and it will definitely freaked you out a little bit. Make sure you pick up a Quick Guide Orlando, that's the little magazine with all the discounts and coupons and it.

Bring your Own Food Snacks

Saving money at the theme parks is all about Bring your Own Food Snacks! Pack some easy-to-take-with-you apples, oranges, bananas, or other fruits and vegetables of choice. A bar that delivers four grams of fiber, seven g protein and five g sugar is a much better ratio than a bar that comes with only 1g fiber, 1g protein, and 9g of sugar. We like to pack dried fruit, nuts, granola bars with a high fiber and protein content and lower sugar content. If you're bringing food with you, and you lack access to a grocery store, consider bringing easy-to-grab items to eat. When picking a granola bar or cereal look for protein and fiber to be high and sugar to be low.
