Default Orlando

Thinking about making the trip and need some input.

For those that went last time, what are some good hotels and in what part of Orlando? I haven't been there in years.

Also- Cap One website says I can either buy a parking pass or ride a bus. Is the pass worth it or should I opt for the shuttle?

I parked in GA and walked to be quite honest. The stadium is not in the best part of town. They've really upgraded the downtown area and a good NYE party as well. As far as hotels, it's really on your budget. There are some nice ones but if you're the type that needs just a mattress to sleep on, they definitely have those.

That's just for official lots. You can still pay to park in several places around the stadium. In 2012 we payed 20 bucks and parked at the high school a couple blocks up. Was pretty easy in and out.

Default Re: Orlando

Downtown will be close to the official festivities. I-Drive and US 192 in Kissimmee will have the most and cheapest rooms and is closest to the attractions. Altamonte Springs/Lake Mary will have decently priced rooms and be away from the hubbub. Just depends on what you want. Be sure to drop by our tailgate! I'll post details once they are set. There will be many rooms under $50. A group of a couple of dozen of us tailgated together in a lot for $20 each. It was in a company's lot very similar to parking around WB. We are trying to put our alumni association stuff together now.

if you want to stay away from the hoopla, try out the Embassy Suites at cranes roost in Altamonte springs. Pretty location of town with lots of restaurants, shopping, entertainment etc, and it's right off I4.

Go downtown, there is an awesome cigar bar called Corona Cigar Co. that rocks during football season. Top shelf booze, cigars, and women. Great latin atmosphere.

City Walk isn't bad, we went there a few times when my girlfriend and I went to Disney this past year. Any other places around Orlando other than City Walk?

There will be the downtown festivities. Plenty of stuff at the attractions. City Walk is hard to beat. Lots of places where the locals go too, places like http://www.myfriendlyconfines.com/Fr...WinterPark.php and http://obliviontaproom.com/. Depends on where you stay and what ages and interests.
