Exploring Orlando for Less with Groupon

Exploring Orlando for Less with Groupon

(This post is sponsored by Groupon, but all opinions and nerding out about my beloved city are my own.)


It’s no secret that I absolutely can not wait to move back to Orlando. Even though I only lived there for three years, it feels more like “home” than Missouri, where I’ve spent almost the entire rest of my life thus far. I even have an Instagram account dedicated entirely to The City Beautiful. It’s crazy how much I miss being surrounded by amazing things to see and do, not to mention having the beach just an hour away on one side and 90 minutes on the other!

Although there are a lot of fantastic things to do in Orlando that are totally free (visiting the Lake Eola swans, for one!), most of those world famous attractions do cost something to visit. While scrolling through the list of companies that Groupon partners with for Groupon Coupons, I was excited to see Best of Orlando listed!

The list of deals available gets a thumbs-up from me, which is high praise! Just a few of the current coupons and promo codes available include:

  • Up to 40% off Orlando area hotels, including the Walt Disney World Swan Resort, which is right next to Disney’s Boardwalk Resort and one of my favorite areas to just wander around, especially at night when the lights are reflecting on Crescent Lake and the Epcot fireworks are doing their thing.
  • Discounts on pretty much every theme park in town. Seriously.
  • 30% off tickets to the Orlando Eye, which I am dying to do. I honestly wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it when it was announced, but its ever-changing color scheme always makes me happy when I pass by it on I-4.

And although it’s called “Best of Orlando”, they also offer discounts on attractions that are located just a short drive away, like 10% off Kennedy Space Center tickets and $28 season passes to Tampa Zoo.

I’m definitely bookmarking this to come back to once I’m home so I can explore my dear Central Florida without spending a fortune.

Have you visited Orlando yet? What are your favorite things to do? Man, I really need to move home so I can share all of my favorite parts of my city with you guys!
