Getting to Orlando is as Much Fun as Your Universal Studios Vacation … Well Almost!

With my family, half the fun of traveling to Universal Studios Orlando is getting there.

Getting to Orlando is easy. Deciding the best way to get there can be another matter … especially if you live in the United States or Canada. Cheap Orlando airfare is fairly easy to find. So, if you live close enough to drive yet far enough away to fly this makes the decision of getting to Orlando by plane or by car a little tougher.

If, on the other hand, you live a little further away such as on the other side of the Atlantic or Pacific, you basically have only one option for getting to Orlando. So pack your bags and fly. Book your flight now!

However, if you have a choice between flying or driving be sure to do your homework before you go. Check out what airfares to Orlando are available and how much they are going to cost you on travel sites like Tripadvisor . Are you going to need a car in Orlando? If so, you'll have to factor in the cost of a car rental too. Travel sites like Kayak and Hotwire can help here as well. If you're not renting a car, don't forget to factor in the cost of Southwest vacations can help here as well. If you're not renting a car, don't forget to factor in the cost of Orlando airport transportation to your hotel.

Then figure out how much it is going to cost to drive to Orlando . Factor in gas, meals along the way and the cost of any overnight stops as well. Now compare the cost of flying to the cost of driving and, voila, your eyes are wide open. Flying may now be a possibility, or it may not be within your budget. But by doing a little bit of investigating you can now make an informed decision on your best way to travel.

Of course, flying versus driving is not only about cost. There are other things to consider when getting to Orlando.

For example, flying may be your only option. Having your car or van with you may be much more convenient than renting a vehicle or using public transportation. Or, maybe you're pressed for time and getting to Orlando as quickly as possible is your top priority.

So, let's take a look at some of these other considerations in more detail.
