#1 Rule in Orlando

Please, do not only go to the theme parks. While they are a must, Orlando is a vibrant and amazing city. It is called "the City Beautiful" for a reason.
Kif tista' tmur minn post għall-ieħor

Traffic

The city can get wildly congested during rush hour. I recommend taking the toll roads during rush hour and the non-toll roads during other time periods. Taking backroads through Orlando is normally better than major roads during rush hour as well.
Qabel ma titlaq

Consider renting a car

Public transportation is unfortunately not the best in Orlando. While it is possible, travel times will probably increase significantly. Also, Ubers are expensive in the Orlando metropolitan area.
