5 Ways to Beat Summer Crowds at Parks

Summer in Orlando is amusement park season, which means everyone wants a piece of the latest roller coasters, simulations, and shows. But you don’t have to wait for inclement weather or chilly winters to have a peaceful park experience. Here are some suggested ways to beat summer crowds at your favorite parks in Central Florida.

Purchase Tickets Beforehand

Waiting in line to purchase a ticket at the gate can sometimes take longer than the wait for the most popular ride. By purchasing your tickets in advance, you can pass on the purchase line and get into the park a lot faster. You’ll probably also be able to find an online discount so that you can have a little more spending money in the park.

Get a Head Start

One of the best ways to beat the crowd is to literally beat them to the gates. Aim to arrive at a park an hour before it is set to open because there may be early entry. Even if the gates are sticking to the schedule, being one of the first in line will mean that you can breeze through bag checks and hop on your favorite ride before the wait even starts.

Reserve Your Ride

Some parks offer passes to let you skip the wait or offer a separate line for people holding ride reservations. This might cost you a little extra, but you can make up for it by fitting in a lot of additional rides.

Ride Solo

Parks are focused on filling every ride as it leaves the station, which is why single rider lines are starting to pop up for most attractions. As long as there aren’t any little ones in your party, hopping in the single rider line can significantly reduce your wait time. You’ll still be able to wait in queue with your friends or family, and you’ll be stepping off the ride around the same time.

Book Your Stay Minutes Away

Beat the crowd by booking one of the best rooms in the city. Located on International Drive, the Rosen Inn is just minutes from the biggest attractions and amusement parks in Orlando.
