It’s already been a while since I’ve been to the USA, but figured I still had to post about our short trip to Orlando. As I was already blown away by Miami’s awesomeness, I honestly didn’t think Orlando would be as cool. Needless to say, my expectations weren’t quite high and that caused me to be surprised to see
what kind of neat city it actually was! I totally recommend visiting Orlando when you’re in Miami. Especially since it’s only about a 3/4hrs drive away. In case you are like I was and wondering: “what’s there to do in Orlando?” Allow me to supply you with the deets…
This is definitely #1 on the list. There are several Disney parks you can visit, so if you’re a hardcore Disney fan, this is da place to be. We went to the Magic Kingdom on the most perfect, sunny day. Turned out they sell different tickets and we got one that allowed us fast entrances to the attractions. It was kind of a hassle though, because you had to make ‘reservations’ to get into a certain ride on a certain time, and they checked it very carefully. But rules are made to be broken and we snuck in nearly every time, hehe. Goodbye 2hrs standing in line 🙂
I’ve been to outlet malls before, and thought everything was still overprized most of the time. But daaaaaaayum this one in Orlando was just crazy! We went to the Premium Outlet Mall and everything was on sale. Can you imagine? Outlet + sale? Hello creditcard and bye bye credit, lol! We did some ridiculous shopping to the point where I could barely hold my bags anymore, but it was worth it … so worth it.
Hit the city
As we only had two days to spend in Orlando and spend one in Disney, the other shopping, we decided to hit the city at night! Since I’m not a regular taxi customer, it was already cool to be in a yellow cab only to be dropped off in a major city full of high buildings and bright lights. It felt so vibrant and alive and oh, there was this small place that had the BEST pizza ever!!! We decided to go clubbing but unfortunately it wasn’t to our taste, so that sucked. But I bet if you go to the right parties on the right nights, it’ll be popping! The downside is that the clubs close pretty early, around 2AM, so make sure to head out on time!
