For some hotels, it’s all about the view. People will pay hundreds of dollars per night to have a gorgeous view of Paris at night, the red rocks of Sedona, an ocean view in Hawaii, etc. Some people are even willing to pay a little less to get a partial view.
Believe it or not though, there are still some hotels out there that offer budget prices but amazing views. Granted, they won’t always be 5-star resorts, and you probably won’t be able to use points (sorry, y’all), but if you’re price sensitive and still want a view, the hotels listed below will be easy on your wallet but heavy on the, “OMG, would you look at that?!?!”
People always say you never get anything of substance for free at Disney parks. And you really don’t. I mean, even their free dining program isn’t truly “free” – you’re paying it via some other avenue. So when Disney started selling Fuel Rods, the “first reusable, portable charging system allowing you to charge mobile devices on the go & recharge or swap for a fresh one instantly,” and offered free swapping, I was skeptical.
At first I thought the idea was dumb, simply because of, among other things, the price point of the Fuel Rods themselves (they were 50% more expensive than anywhere else they were available), the lack of swapping ability outside of Disney, and what a crappy charge the Fuel Rods gave your phone. Wow, did I get a lot of flack for that from hardcore Disney fans, LOL!
About 6 months later, I re-examined the whole Fuel Rod thing and one new thing stood out – there were admittedly many more kiosks around, particularly at theme parks, which meant there were more places to switch out. I still thought there were much better portable rechargers out there, but agreed they were OK during specific circumstances.
Many visitors to Central Florida know that renting a car at Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the ultimate freedom. You have a vehicle at your disposal for the entirety of your trip, and that allows you to not only come and go as you please, but also lets you to go just about anywhere without the hassles and occasional uncertainties of shuttles, buses, taxis and ride sharing.
Everyone is always talking about the ways to get good rates on hotels – using points, looking at websites like KAYAK, Hotels.com, Orbitz, Expedia, etc. However there’s one tried and true method that’s been working for over 100 years…
