Visiting Orlando in the Spring

Visiting Orlando in the Spring – What You Should Know

17.15 million people visited Orlando in the Spring of 2017. We are expecting to see more in the Spring of 2018, and for good reason: this is the time of the year when our city is bursting with life and energy. The flowers are blooming, and the birds are chirping.

And more important than everything else, the tourists come flocking back. Our city has a dash of magic and a heaping dose of hospitality, so we welcome you with open arms. If you are looking for Orlando limousine reservations, come to us. If you are on the hunt for an insider look at Orlando, read on.

Stay Off the I-4

Spring is a time of hope for many people. Once you get onto the I-4 during peak traffic hours, many of your hopes will be dashed in long traffic jams. Orange-vested construction workers appear from the woodwork come April, making an already clogged road even more congested.

One of the easiest ways you can take the stress out of your trip is by renting a limo. We are locals, and we know all of the streets like the backs of our hands. You can trust us to get you to where you are going with the least amount of frustration.

Know the Weather

The closer we get to the Summer, the hotter it gets. While that seems rational, people often underestimate just how warm it can be. Average highs are a pleasant 78 in March, but can eclipse 88 degrees in May. This means that you will want to grab a pair of shorts and a few water bottles before you head out.

Also, it is important to keep in mind that we get sudden rains. It may prove wise to take a rain jacket with you. If you are worried that the rain will put a damper on your trip, it will be ok. Orlando has plenty to offer indoors.

So Many Parties

After Winter, we all want to pull an Elsa and let it go. Seriously, though, there is a lot going on in Orlando. Epcot has the International Flower and Garden Festival. Disney World has the Galactic Nights. The Magic Kingdom has Disney After Hours. A lot of the theme parks pull out all of the stops when the weather starts getting warm.

We haven’t even gotten to the biggest party of all: Spring Break. Every single year, thousands of college kids from all across the country come to Orlando. If there isn’t already a party, chances are they are going to make one.

When you need a guide to the top Orlando bars and clubs, we have you covered. There is a lot to do in Orlando. Sometimes it is worth just to get out and explore.

Commune with Nature

Orlando is known for its big theme parks and the excitement of roller coasters thundering through the air. Our town does have a lot to offer outside of that. There are the Everglades, Lake Eola Park, and our personal favorite, scenic Winter Park Boat Tours. Orlando has a natural side to it as well.

If you have any questions about how to make the most out of your Orlando trip, call us today. We can be your resource on all things Orlando. Limo Car Orlando will be happy to take your limousine reservations.

What to Do on Valentine’s Day in Orlando

What to Do on Valentine’s Day in Orlando

If you hit this place at the right time, the dancefloor will be shaking and grooving. Cuba Libre can provide one of the liveliest Valentine’s dates you have ever had. When you are looking for a little bit más, this is an excellent choice.

STK Orlando is one of the nicest steakhouses in the city. Located in Disney Springs, you can find more traditional fare. Don’t let all the tourists scare you off, because the steak here is absolutely divine.

Fleming’s is a little bit more upscale, but taking your date here is worth every penny. Come dressed to impress. If you have some wine knowledge, you can really flex it here. They have two locations in Orlando, and either spot is perfect for Valentine’s.

Things to Do

If you go to Fleming’s in Winter Park, you have the perfect opportunity to walk around the neighborhood. This part of the city features a wide range of cute buildings and quirky shops. You can pop in to Rocket Fizz to get your date something sweet, or Apple Blossom Florist for flowers that she will remember. You can also take a scenic boat tour, and see the Kraft Azalea Garden and the Isle of Sicily from on the water.

If your date is looking for something a little more highbrow, you should consider the Orlando Museum of Art. It is closed on major holidays, but it is open on Saturdays and Sundays between 12-4PM. Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, which means that you may have to go on the Saturday before Valentine’s. And if you are going out that night, you need something to do during the day. So why not look at some rare and unique paintings?

What You Should Know About Pandora - The World of Avatar graphic

The 411 On Disney’s New Attraction: The World of Avatar

Pandora, also known as the World of Avatar, just made a grand entrance. This new and exciting attraction was directly inspired by the record-breaking movie, Avatar, which takes place on the alien world of Pandora.

Located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests are invited to roam the stimulating world of Pandora, where Sci-Fis fantasies become reality. Guests can experience everything from virtual reality rides to making their very own Avatar at this new hot spot.

Disney’s Imagineer Designers chose to create the valley of Mo’ara, the main setting of the film, where animated strips of jungles, flowing streams, and  caves all come together.

Below you will discover all the main attractions you can find in the new World of Avatar:

Na’vi River Journey

This exciting ride lets you journey into deep forests in search of the Na’vi Shaman of Songs. This attraction is family-friendly and suitable for children of all ages. This ride offers FastPass accessibility, so you no longer have to wait in line!

Avatar Flight of Passage

This thrilling tour will have you talking for days! The World of Avatar now offers the opportunity to fly on the back of a mountain banshee in hopes of catching some cool sights. You may be interested in checking this one out if you’re a huge fan of sunsets, or simply like nature.

Flight of Passage actually imitates a scene from the film. The main character, Jake Sully, flies on a rather interesting creature known as an Ikran, or banshee. Jake builds a strong connection with this creature, and finally gets to see “big picture” while flying over the skies of Pandora. Now, you will too!

This ride is appropriate for all ages, and may be particularly relevant for kids, and teens.

Valley of Mo’ara

You won’t regret walking through the valley of Mo’ara. Be prepared to catch exotic plants coming to life, find cultural items throughout the land, and go on fascinating expeditions!

At the valley, you will also spot large floating mountains, where you can capture the beauty of Avatar’s creatures and wildlife. You may even be lucky enough to come across tour guides like Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) and experts from the Pandora Conservation Initiative.

So what are you waiting for? Start the year off right, and book your transportation to this magical experience now!

Top 5 Spots to Spend New Year’s Eve in Orlando

Orlando was recently recognized in a WalletHub article as the 2nd best place for New Year’s Celebrations. While it’s pretty obvious what was #1—hint hint it involves Timesquare—it is still quite an achievement.

Orlando Halloween Guide

Orlando Halloween Celebration Guide

For the residents of Orlando, Halloween is basically Christmas. We do not experience the Winter Wonderland that our friends to the north get to enjoy. So we go all out in the Fall, and have a spook-tacular time. Read on for our guide to Halloween in Orlando.

Halloween Horror Nights

If this were a rock show, Halloween Horror Nights would be the headliner. It is not just one of the best events in Orlando, this is one of the scariest, most exciting, and most buzzworthy events in the entire country. Head on down to Universal Studios between September 15th and November 4th for one of the creepiest times you will ever have.

Not only is this horrifying, this is recognizable horror. All of your favorite films come to life, and all of the bad guys are headed straight at you. Among this year’s villains are Jigsaw from the Saw franchise, the horrors of the Overlook Hotel from The Shining, and some of the worst purveyors of evil from American Horror Story. Some of the antagonists from Evil Dead, the Purge, and Insidious will also be on hand to scare you out of your wits.

Universal Studios has been known to go all out for these few weeks. There are live actors wandering around the park in terrifying makeup, and there is no shortage of scares. Diagon Alley will remain open throughout this event.

You may have already guessed this, but this is not for the little ones. Children under the age of 13 are strongly advised to stay away from the Halloween Horror Nights. Tickets will run you $59.99 for a single night, and there are packages as well. No masks or costumes are allowed.

Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

This one is a little bit more family friendly. There are events which celebrate the villains of Disney, and shows which explore magic and dark acts. A parade rolls through the grounds, including stars of the Haunted Mansion.

You can come dressed to this event, and trick or treat around the park. The night ends with a spectacular fireworks show. This is only happening on a few select nights, and tickets will cost $74 dollars each.

A Petrified Forest

If you are only seeing one haunted house this year, this one is the way to go. There are two trail rides this year, and they are bigger and better than ever. This has consistently been rated as one of the scariest and best Halloween events in Central Florida. You cannot miss this one.

This one has been rated PG-13. While children under the age of 12 can visit, they will need an adult with them. Opening night is October 6th, and it runs for a few weeks.  You can check out their site for more information. Going toe to toe with maniacs, zombies, and ghouls of all sorts can be daunting, so only the very brave should attend this one.

Trick or Treating

There are many areas of the city to go trick or treating. Our personal favorite is Baldwin Park. When you are looking for good old-fashioned trick or treating, that is the place to go. Hundreds of parents and kids will be swarming the area. It will be safe, and very family friendly.

Halloween Bar Crawl

Get ready to party and join the 3rd Annual Halloween Bar Crawl around Downtown Orlando. Purchase a $24 ticket and gain free cover at every venue, exclusive drink specials and a Halloween t-shirt.

Orlando Business Conventions Do's and Don'ts

Orlando Business Convention Dos and Don’ts

Everybody knows Orlando because of the theme parks, and Orlando has more than earned the reputation as a city of tourists. Most people do not know that Orlando is a thriving business capital. Orlando’s technology companies are worth $13.4 billion in revenue. The Central Florida Research Park, which is one of the largest research parks in the country, is in the area. Many big business conventions roll through our city, so we prepared a guide to help out business travelers.


Catch a game. Orlando has 6 professional sports teams. The two most prominent among them are the Orlando Magic of the NBA, and Orlando City SC, of the MLS. The University of Central Florida is also located in Orlando, so watching one of their games is easy. Quite a few games are played at night, so you can unwind after doing business all day, or do some networking.

Take in some live music. Orlando has been the birthplace of many famous musical acts. The Backstreet Boys, Matchbox 20, and Trivium all started here, so there is a band suited to every taste. Bars and pubs populate the city all up and down. After a hard day of conferencing, it is import to relax a little bit.

Ride in style. All of the theme parks have their own transportation, but that is mostly for getting to an from the parks. The area has public transport, but that has often been described as a ‘cultural experience’. Cruising around in a limo shows that you are there for work, but can do it in style.

Hit the links. Florida is a golfer’s paradise, and central Florida must feel like heaven to people who love to golf. The area has tons of golf courses. If you have a free day, you can grab some of your new friends and play 18. The greenery and fauna provide a stunning backdrop so you can hack away with partners.


Try to do too much. Many visitors of the city underestimate the distances between Orlando and some of the surrounding attractions. It takes almost four hours to drive to Miami, and driving there and back takes up a vast majority of your day. Making it down to the Everglades will take a little longer. Cape Canaveral is only an hour away, so if you are dying to see the Space Center, you can probably see it. There is a lot to see and do in Orlando, though, so don’t go too hard.

Underestimate the weather. 96 degrees in Michigan is not 96 degrees in Orlando. Florida is an incredibly humid place, and the sun is almost always shining. This means that you should drink lots of water, wear shorts, and apply sunscreen.

Trust scalpers or people with ‘discount’ tickets. We understand the allure of the theme parks. If you have a day off, it is almost imperative that you visit one. There are tons of dishonest people around who sell fake tickets for low prices. This is just a scam. You can usually find solid deals on the websites or through trusted sources.

Get on I-4. This interstate is an absolute nightmare most of the time, and it is nothing short of hellacious during rush hour. The construction they are doing is not helping the nightmare. If you can avoid I-4, you should.

At Limo Car Orlando, we offer limo rides with professional, courteous, and local chauffeurs. Call us today.

4 Tips for Surviving in the Summer

4 Tips for Surviving the Orlando Summer

Over the summer, the whole world flocks to Orlando. In 2016 alone, 68 million people visited our city. Everyone who lives down here knows that the summers are hot and muggy, and the throngs of people warm the place up even further. As residents of the city, we know a few tips on how to beat the heat.

1.       Wear Brightly Colored Clothing

People from further north love to come down to our city. We lovingly call them snow birds. Not many of them understand what the weather is like down here, so they are not prepared. We recommend wearing light, bright clothing while you are visiting the city. Light clothing is better in the heat. It insulates your body less, and is far more breathable than heavier clothing.

You need bright clothing as well because there are very many people in Orlando over the summer, and it is easy to get lost in a crowd. A neon shirt will make members of your family stand out in a group, so you can spot them easily. An average of 11 kids get lost every day in Disney theme parks. They are lost for an average of 30 minutes. This is not so serious, but temporarily losing someone can be a dark spot on your day.

2.       Drink Plenty of Water

People often underestimate how much water they lose while out in the sun. As you are out and about, you are exerting yourself. You need to ensure that you are hydrating yourself, so that you do not run into heat and sun related illnesses.

In normal conditions, it is a good idea to drink 8 eight-ounce glasses of water per day. When the weather is hot and you are moving around a lot, this number goes up. Little kids love the wonder and excitement of Orlando, and rush around without care for themselves. It is especially important for the little ones to stay hydrated as they have the time of their lives.

3.       Bring a Backpack

We understand that you do not want to look like a tourist, but do not worry; this is Orlando. Almost everyone is a tourist. Throwing a few water bottles in your backpack can save you a considerable amount of cash. A backpack also gives you space to store snacks, like granola bars, so you can sate your hunger pangs while you are out at the parks.

Those are not the only items to carry around. Sunscreen is vital in Orlando. Making sure you have enough will help you fight against sunburns. A towel also comes in handy. At many parks, you will get wet, and you do not want to spend the whole day like that.

4.       Stay in Contact

A fully charged phone is a wonderful thing. If you are in a group, you may split up. Letting people know where you are and where you will be going helps make sure no one will be lost. If you are not in a group, a charged phone at the end of the day will help you get around and make the calls you need. Constant communication is the way to go, and helps in planning.

At Limo Car Orlando, we believe in helping our community. If you would like to rent a limousine bus, a hummer limo, or want chauffeur service, do not hesitate to contact us today. Our trained, professional, and local drivers can make your trip magical.
