The grand opening of Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, the Harry Potter theme park, took place on Friday when thousands of visitors came to entertain themselves in Florida. Universal is touting the new 20-acre “island” as a “theme park within a theme park.” The Harry Potter Theme Park has a wide range of attractions for its guets, such as Dragon Challenge, which is a racing coaster, Honeydukes, where you can taste the special dessert dishes, like Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans and Chocolate Frogs, Three Broomsticks, the British-style restaurant and above all, the Forbidden Journey will thake its passengers on a simulated flying ride aboard an “enchanted bench” using robotic arms. The characters, Harry, Ron, and Hermione, will take guests soaring above Hogwarts castle, into a quidditch match, and for close encounters with a Dementor, an attacking dragon, and a Whomping Willow.

Latest Disneyland World Money Saving Tips

Although the global recession, visiting Disneyland World in Florida is still a high priority for many people. This resort is a destination itself because it has two waterslide parks, four theme parks and two dozen hotels. Discounts have rareley made public by the Disneyland World company, because this wouldn’t bring such a profit than paying full price. So finding deals is nowadays crucial in order to afford spending a couple of days in the land of wonders. First of all, because of the sudden downfall in the number of clients in comparison with previous years because of the economical crisis, Disneyland decided to promote special offers, such as packages, that allow you to have a free drink or meal during your stay. Go to disneyworld.disney.go.com/special-offers or MouseSavers.com which have discount coupons. But, you have to pay attention to the fact that these offers are sometimes available for at least four days.

In addition, a useful tip is to visit Disneyland resort in off-season, because, otherwise, you can pay even up to $145 for a concrete-block room when the kids are out of school. But, on the other hand, these are the worst-rated hotels at Disneyland World in Orlando, Florida, as the buses are most crowded and they look more like motels. If you still want to book one, then pay attention to the fact that there is a four-person limit for the less expensive rooms. So, you can as well feel free to choose one of the properties a few miles away from Disneyland resort, where your family can rent one of the many vacation McMansions, with pools, grills, and big-screen TVs. The next relevant tip concerns drivers. Don’t worry if you don’t have a car because the buses of the free Disney Transportation System (DTS) or the Magical Express coaches will drive you to and from Orlando International Airport with no money in exchange. If you have a reservation made at one of the hotels in the resort, then you will have to pay $14 for a parking place.

When exploring the Disneyland World go to the free attractions first, such as the monorail through the Contemporary Resort or over Epcot, the ferry across the water to the gates of the Magic Kingdom, and the illuminated water-borne floats of the Electrical Light Parade between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. nightly on Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. Most visitors will take the kids with them, so this might cost quite a little fortune during these harsh days. So, what one shoud do is to bring your own costumes. Otherwise, this may go up to almost $50 to make your own suit in one of the specialised salons at Disneyland World – The Pirates League, for instance. One tip penny pinchers have to take into account is staying longer, paying less for a theme park ticket. For instance, instead of paying $84 a day, you should better have a seven-days pass for only $35.60 a day. Don’t travel to Disneyland World during peak season, that is go there in August, September and January, when the accommodation is $82 a night. If we take the $84 price per ticket for just one adult, then we come to see that this is much money to spend. However, don’t spend a long holiday at Disneyland World as you will mostly miss the other top attractions Florida has, such as: SeaWorld, the Kennedy Space Center or Universal Orlando.You can still save up money if you make your own meals, for instance you can make two $3.75 burgers out of a double cheeseburger by buying an extra bun for 80 cents. But, you may not feel as if you have eaten enough, when trying this kind of combinations.
