Being a Florida Resident is huge for saving money on that Orlando getaway you've always wanted. We were very impressed with the three day Disney Pass, which amounts to only 30% of the regular price. It is just too hard to pass up. We have a lot of fun at the beaches and do mega day trips around the coastline, but the entertainment in Orlando is so strong. The days are at the theme parks and when we finish it is to the giant Disney Hotel Swimming Pool. Disney does the best job with the pools, but even some of the Marriott's and Hilton's have a theme park pool zone. They really make the value Worth the Price. We also like to go in May, you can beat the summer rush to Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Orlando rocks for locals, the best months are May and June.
Specialty Cocktails and coffee at Paradiso 37 are excellent. This is the place we looked at the last time we went to Disney Springs and you said you liked it. It looks excellent! Delicious Spicy Food, good prices, live entertainment, open late, great atmosphere. I think this is the place to go. It opens at 11am and for all the food and entertainment. Good pick for Orlando Nightlife.
