It’s the month for trick or treating. And this year round, you’ve decided to treat yourself, by heading down to Orlando, FL for all the Halloween festivities.
It’ll be cool, scary, and a whole lot of fun, and you’re here for it!
But where should you start? Here’s a handy guide to steer you through!
How to Celebrate Halloween in Orlando
– Get the Basics Out of the Way
Transport, lodging, food—get these details out of the way so you can have a trouble-free holiday. For transport, rent a vehicle so you don’t have to depend on public transport. As for food, Orlando has plenty to offer.
However, for your lodgings, you need to take your time and make the right choice. Instead of a pricey hotel, choose a vacation home in Orlando, especially if you’re traveling with friends and family.
Companies such as Blue Travel will be able to help you find affordable vacation homes within your budget, so it shouldn’t be a problem!
– Mark All Halloween Events
Halloween-themed events carry on well into October, and even into the first week of November, so you’ll have plenty to enjoy, even if you arrive late. But be smart about it.
Instead of going to the regular haunts—like theme parks—search for smaller events. Signature Orlando Halloween events include:
- Howl-O-Scream Busch Gardens in Tampa
- The Petrified Forest in Altamonte Springs
- Ripley’s Believe it Or Not! Odditorium
- Central Florida Zoo’s Zoo Boo Bash
- Scott’s Maze Adventure (for kids!)
- Gators Ghosts and Goblins
Some events require you to buy tickets, whereas others are free. However, none of them charge over-the-top prices so even if you’re with a big group, you won’t have to worry about your wallet after you pay.
– Put Off Theme Park Events for the Week
Weekends are all about enjoying low-key events! There’s plenty of food, fun, and activities. However, if you’re thinking of indulging in some LegoLand fun as well, be warned, you will regret it.
Remember, these locations are tourist-favorites. Pushing through crowds will not be a fun experience. Head over early afternoon, and start from the rides at the end of the park, then work your way forward. And take advantage of free activities if you’re strapped for cash.
– Limit Traveling on Halloween Night
Everyone and their children will be out and about on Halloween night! This means traffic, busy restaurants and big crowds. Instead of braving this mess, stay back in your Orlando vacation home and host your own modest Halloween get-together.
Keep food and drinks simple, have a horror movie marathon and just relax. This is a holiday, after all. Enjoy it!
