Product Description:
Preparing for a visit to Orlando can turn into a full-time job, and paying for it can devour a small fortune. Most books on the market make the problem worse, either burying vacationers in tiny details and anxieties or functioning as unquestioning cheerleaders for the high-priced theme parks and resorts. But Frommer’s’ 2017 Easy Guide cuts through the noise and hyperbole to deliver what no other book does: Honest talk, frank advice, and an affectionate insider’s secrets to appreciating and affording Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, Sea World, and the inimitable attractions of Orlando and Central Florida.

Praised by locals and visitors alike, it’s the only guide to show you Orlando the way you actually want to see it. No other guide book is as comprehensive while remaining so concise and so honest. No other book synthesizes advice, history, and good sense in such an easy-to-read format.

This Orlando guide is so novel and groundbreaking that its author, Jason Cochran, was awarded Guide Book of the Year from the Society of American Travel Writers for creating it. Cochran, who is also the editor-in-chief of our popular website, Frommers.com and the co-host of the Frommer Travel Show, keeps you on top of the newest developments in this ever-shifting tourist scene.

- Rankings of the area’s best resorts and well-priced hotels
- Smart appraisals of what’s worth waiting in line for — and what you can skip
- Reviews of non-chain restaurants — a full chapter’s worth — so you can find the best flavors beyond the usual franchises
- Money-saving tips and hacks to tame the high cost of an Orlando holiday
- Tips on navigating the complex theme park systems that aren’t down with unnecessarily obsessive details—Learn what you need to know and then relax.

The book is in the lightweight and easily-carried format of our Easy Guides, and it also contains a valuable fold-out map.

Product Description:

Preparing for an Orlando vacation can be a full-time job, and it costs a small fortune. Most other books on the market make the problem worse, burying vacationers in endless pages of pointless details unquestioningly cheering for the high-priced theme parks and resorts. But the lightweight, fact-packed Frommer’s’ 2018 EasyGuide cuts through the noise and compresses the information you truly need to know. No other book does what we do: Honest talk, solid essentials, and affectionate insider’s secrets to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, and the inimitable culture and history of Orlando and Central Florida.



This Orlando guide is so groundbreaking that its author, Jason Cochran, was awarded Guide Book of the Year from the Society of American Travel Writers for creating it. Cochran, who is also the co-host of the popular Frommer Travel Show on radio, has been going to Orlando since the early 1970s and he keeps you on top of the newest developments in this ever-shifting tourist scene. He wants to help you master the parks with a minimum of anxiety and expense.



No other book is as comprehensive while remaining so concise and so honest. No other book synthesizes advice, history, and good sense in such an easy-to-read format. It’s smart―like you.



Smart appraisals of what’s worth waiting in line for ― and what you can skip ― using the Frommer’s star rating system, plus “don’t miss” sections for each park

Incredible restaurant recommendations ― a full chapter’s worth. It’s the only guide in which all city restaurants are family-owned and none are chains or franchises



16 pages of color photos



Interior maps of the theme parks, plus area maps marked with hotels, restaurants, and attractions



Rankings of the area’s best resorts and well-priced hotels, including bold warnings for which ones charge extra resort fees



Brilliant tips to save money, avoid crowds, and skip the lines



Fully updated insider details and secrets, including for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the new Pandora―The World of Avatar, and Volcano Bay.



Money-saving tips and hacks to tame the high cost of an Orlando holiday



Step-by-step itineraries whether you’re bringing kids or you aren’t



PLUS! A huge fold-out, indexed map of the entire Orlando area for on-the-go navigation



It’s Disney, the stress-free way!



There’s a reason that Frommer’s has been the most trusted name in travel for more than sixty years. Arthur Frommer created the best-selling guide series in 1957 to help American servicemen fulfill their dreams of travel in Europe, and since then, we have published thousands of titles became a household name helping millions upon millions of people realize their own dreams of seeing our planet. Travel is easy with Frommer’s.
