Nitty Gritty stuff for Orlando trip



Author: RT
Date: 02/24/2003, 09:03 am

Message: We are heading to Florida in early April for a week of Sun ( Really need it as we have just dug out
again from another storm, Newmarket Ont). Need to get some answers on some nitty gritty stuff

- Staying at the Grand Hilton Resort at Sea World, have a 3 bedroom Condo. Has anyone stayed in a 3 bedroom
unit there and if so, is there a section of the resort that is better / convenient we should try to reserve , (we will
be taking 3 kids all aroud 5 years old)

- Is there a grocery store nearby.

- Can you get transportation from the resort to Disney. We will have a car rental but there may need a day where
the group will split up.

- Sea World , can you see it comfortably in one day. Right now we can get a one day ticket or a 5 day pass for
CDN $$ at par , ($53 for one day or $106 for 5 days). The 5 day pass lets you also go to Bush Gradens in
Tampa.

- Water parks, we would like to do one water park during our stay, any recomendations on which one,
(wet'N'wild, Disney etc.)

- From the looks of it the resort is very near International Drive, any good restaurants (fun stuff for kids)

- Thanks for all you help

Hi RT:

I've only been to Orlando once, but going again myself in a couple of weeks. International Drive is loaded with hotels, restaurants and I believe there is a really nice grocery store called Goodings I believe on there. Have fun.

RT, Not sure exactly where this resort is but I will assume that it is near Sea World. There is a grocery store(Publix) on Central Florida Pkwy, just past Sea World. Can not tell you about Transp. I would just call the resort. Sea World can easily be done in a day. I can not even think about what you would do for 5 days, Busch Gardens can also be done in one day. As for water parks I would recommend either Blizzard Beach or Typhoon lagoon. W&W seems a bit more for the teenage crowd and is mostly concrete, not much shade. BB and TL both are very tropical with lots of shade and vegetation that is a much nicer atmosphere. International Drive is a plethora of restaurants with everything you could possibly want. Check out Point Orlando, it is an outdoor mall with many restaurants ( I like Dan Marino's), Also if you don't mind a long wait try Bahama Breeze.
