The Complete Guide To Planning An Orlando Spring Break Vacation

As the season of rebirth approaches, now is the perfect time to organize a getaway with friends or family in advance that says goodbye to winter and hello to spring. A great getaway requires the right location, and Orlando, Florida is the ideal spot for spring break. Getting the most out of your stay requires setting goals and knowing how the area can help you meet them. You must consider factors such as how long you will be staying, what you will get to do, and who will be traveling with you. With a trip booked at Margaritaville Resort Orlando, your next spring break ensures great memories. Here is the complete guide to planning an Orlando Spring Break vacation.

1. Find A Timeframe

Orlando is home to a variety of attractions and activities that can keep you entertained throughout your spring break. Experiencing as many of these attractions as possible requires taking advantage of all of your vacation time, with a minimum of a week recommended for your retreat. The timeframe of your spring break may also determine what you can do, whether you’re a college student visiting in March or a family visiting in April. Planning your getaway’s start and end date ahead of time will allow you to enjoy the best that Orlando has to offer.

2. Create A To-Do List

Creating memories in your spring break requires a location that offers the right number of attractions and activities, and Orlando is packed with them. With the large number of options available, a proper spring break structure can help you avoid having to choose between activities. Some attractions require the whole day to enjoy, so you can reserve an entire day for them to experience everything they have to offer. Other days on your to-do list can be reserved for multiple activities that only require a few hours to complete.

3. Book Your Resort

Another factor to consider when making the most of your spring break is where you will be staying. Your resort must be close enough to attractions to experience as much as possible, as well as feature amenities to help you relax during your downtime. Staying at Margaritaville Resort Orlando puts you just minutes away from must-see attractions with access to transportation services. Rooms come in different forms for groups of different sizes, and the resort features themed activities and services to help you relax or have fun whenever you feel like staying in.

4. Venture To Theme Parks

No Orlando vacation is complete without a visit to its world-famous theme parks, and spring break allows you to welcome the warm weather of the year with multiple thrills. Each park provides a variety of rides and activities that will require the whole day to experience. Vacationing in Orlando for at least a week gives you time for theme parks at Disney, Universal, and SeaWorld. Attractions come in different forms for travelers of all ages, which offers fun for those who are visiting with their family.

6. Cool Off At Water Parks

Another reason why we recommend a minimum of a week in Orlando for your spring break is to spend a day at any of the area’s water parks.

Options for water parks during your stay include Island H2O Water Park located in Sunset Walk with Margaritaville Resort Orlando, Orlando: Aquatica Water Park, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, and Universal’s Volcano Bay.

One of the elements of a vacation that can help you start and end each day right is your choice for unique meals.

Head downstairs for a bite at Euphoria Fish House, Provisions, or Salty Rim Bar & Grill.
