I lived in Florida for a year working at Walt Disney world. By far the best year of my life, working for the mouse. Castmembers (Disney employees) get a LOT of perks within Disney and outside of (Disney employs arounf 65,000 people in Florida). So lots of discounts.
The perks of being a castmember were amazing. Free entry to parks, 40% off shops, 60% off all the hotels (There are about 24 resorts in Disney world). So essentially every weekend was spent staying in Disney resorts, all are built around an experiential idea so its ultra fabulous.
Besides Disney, Orlando has a great nightlife lots of bars/clubs in the downtown area. I've tagged a few of my favs :)
Lot of gigs happen here. In Disney Downtown.
best sunday nights.
Gay Bar. Great for girls
Watch some Irish tap dancers, amazing food & drinks. Irish car bomb is a must here.
Everything experiential in one.
If you like Ceviche.
Irish Pub FTW.
Best knows to have the outlet store for every premium brand you can think of.
Best view of the Disney fireworks, Dont even need to be staying here to walk into the hotel and chill on the fake beach.
