Attractions Under $20

Budget-conscious travelers may be surprised to learn that Orlando was named the most affordable travel destination in the U.S. for the fourth year in a row by financial technology company SmartAsset. Fun attractions under $20 for a budget-friendly Orlando getaway include:

  • Crayola Experience’s two-story family attraction is a colorful, socially distanced creativity excursion with 26 hands-on activities ($19.99 through Visit Orlando).
  • The tallest swing ride in North America - Orlando StarFlyer at ICON Park - is just $10 online.
  • Cruise the scenic waterways on the narrated Winter Park Boat Tour, which meanders along three lakes and two scenic canals of the tranquil Winter Park chain ($13.15 for adults.)

“Stay for a Day” Resort Passes

Plunge into the new waterfalls and lagoons of a different pool paradise each day as several world class resorts now offer single day passes. Enjoy access to pool features, private cabanas, resort spas, and even a day pass to a hotel room - all with social distancing guidelines in place.

  • The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress has a half-acre pool with 12 waterfalls, waterslide tower, water jet splash zone and white sandy beaches, with day passes starting at just $20 per adult and $10 per child. Hotel amenities such as pitch ‘n ‘putt golf and a rock-climbing wall are also included. In addition, day rooms can be reserved starting at $109.
  • Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek’s amenities include a 3-acre lazy river, waterslide, hot tubs and cabanas. Day passes start at $20 per adult and $10 per child; cabanas start at $175.
  • A 53,000-square-foot, canopy-covered water park with 14 slides and rides, CoCo Key Resort & Spa is a hit with kids of all ages. Passes start at $25 for adults and $15 for kids.

Orlando Outdoors

In addition to theme parks being largely outdoors – with their immersive lands, roller coasters and outdoor shows – Orlando’s natural side has fun open air and outdoor activities from “wild to mild”:

  • Fulfill the need for speed at Revolution Off Road, home to 200 acres of tracks and trails for off-road experiences including ATVs and Argo amphibious Mucky Ducks.
  • Soar above the ground at Orlando Tree Trek, an outdoor adventure and workout all in one, with an aerial adventure course offering six courses and two giant zip lines.
  • Kayak down crystal-clear natural springs with Get Up and Go Kayaking.
