Disney World tips for the best Summer Vacation in Orlando.

Summer is just around the corner, and families from all over the world are gearing up for a Disney World vacation in Orlando. If you want to make the most of your trip the Most Magical Place on Earth, here are a few tips to consider.

  1. Find a hotel – If you want a hotel with a great pool this summer, you’ll have to book early as these rooms are the first to be sold out. Right now, has some of the best hotels for summer available now and with savings that you can only get by being a member of this corporate benefits program.
  2. Plan some easy days – I know it is tempting to fill your days full of the theme parks, but I suggest getting a couple extra days at the hotel, so that you can rest by the pool for some relaxation. Recharge your batteries before venturing to another theme park. I’d choose a Saturday for a recharge day, because that’s the busiest day for most theme parks. Make the most of it on weekdays at the parks, and try to take it easier on the weekends. That’s a good rule of thumb from the expert theme park goer.
  3. Consider flexible ticket options – Sometimes planning isn’t for everyone, so why not choose a ticket that fits your way of life. SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa offer Length of Stay tickets that are valid for 14 consecutive days of unlimited admissions. Also, try the Orlando Flex Ticket that grants five or six parks for one great price. Parks include Universal Orlando, Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld Orlando and more.
  4. Discover Florida – If you’re traveling from afar, you might want to check out Gatorland or take an airboat ride through the everglades. There are a ton of options that let you explore Florida in different ways from ziplining to seeing iconic space shuttles at Kennedy Space Center.
  5. Water Park Fun and More – Let’s face it, if you’re going to Disney World this summer; I can’t recommend enough the Water Park Fun and More option on your Disney Magic Your Way Tickets. It’s really a great way to extend your vacation because for every Disney Day you’ll get another day at a Water Park or DisneyQuest. This goes back into the thinking of taking some days easy, and making those easy days on the weekends and taking advantage of the weekdays.
  6. Create your My Disney Experience – Before you go, you can plan your FastPass + options. This is a must if you want to get the best times for your favorite rides. As soon as you get your tickets, sign up on the My Disney Experience page and get your family queued up.
  7. Plan on things not all going according to the plan – One thing I’d love to tell everyone is that schedules don’t always go as we plan. Things will happen and best laid plans will be set aside, but it’s important to remember that you’re taking an Orlando Vacation to have fun. Make the most of your day, and skip the new ride instead of waiting for a huge amount of time. There’s so many ways to have fun in Disney World. Sometimes you’ll need to get rid of some plans to make room for some spontaneous adventures! Things end up being the best times anyways.

All Aboard the Party Bus by Nite Tours

Party Bus by Nite Tours

As a Miami native, I didn’t think any other place could top the nightlife scene. But last night I witnessed firsthand Las Vegas was the city to do just that – and then some – thanks to Vegas Club Hop by Nite Tours. Immediately after arriving at The Cromwell’s Interlude, we were greeted by a larger-than-life Nite Tours host who gave us a rundown of the evening. Soon after, the other club hoppers and I were off to our first club, Drai’s Nightclub, which was only a ride up the elevator to the 11th floor of the same hotel. I definitely loved the grandeur of it all, the luxurious décor, bumping soundtracks and awesome lighting.

But the real party came later, when we hopped on board Nite Tours’ Party Bus en route to our second destination, LAX Nightclub at the Luxor. Our host turned the evening up a notch higher when he started to serve everyone free drinks, one after the other. From there, the entire bus let loose with him leading the way. He even began to dip and twirl on the bus’ stripper pole! So work hard and play even harder with great deals from TicketsatWork. You and your friends can experience up to three premiere nightclubs with the Vegas Club Hop by Nite Tours. And sometimes, the ride is the best part rather than the destination especially if you’re riding the Party Bus!

I recently experienced the power of thunder – as in the Australian male revue which performs nightly at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino. A well-deserved break from the office and the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip, it was a fun-filled evening with explosive energy, awesome music, and, of course, good-looking blokes with the most chiseled bodies known to mankind.

Adventure into Downtown Las Vegas

Before there was the famed Las Vegas Strip, there was good ol’ Downtown Las Vegas. Although they’re only a few miles apart, the two locations have entirely different personalities of their own. The Strip is known for its glitz-n-glamour, five-star hotels, restaurants and entertainment. But just because you won’t find a Louis Vuitton or Restaurant Guy Savoy in Downtown Las Vegas, doesn’t mean it’s anything but lackluster. In fact, the Fremont Street Experience in downtown shines on its own.

I had the opportunity to venture into the five-block-long district packed with historic casinos, bars and restaurants. Draped overhead was a giant LCD video display which added to Fremont Street’s nightly musical entertainment. We also got to see the exciting new SlotZilla Zipline, where brave souls flew down the brightly lit street. Of course, it’s the original hotels—the ones that have withstood the test of time—that continue to make Downtown Las Vegas a beloved spot in the city.

So for those of you looking to switch it up during your next Las Vegas vacation, check out TicketsatWork for incredible deals on Downtown Las Vegas hotels. Stay in one of Sin City’s oldest and most iconic hotels like the Golden Nugget, El Cortez Hotel and Casino or Four Queens. There are also great prices to Fremont Street’s newest hotel, Downtown Grand. What are you waiting for? Book your stay at these dazzling, value-oriented hotels in Downtown Las Vegas with TicketsatWork.
