What can two friends do in Orlando for not a lot of money?

Hey, I'm bringing a friend to Orlando after a five night cruise. What could the two of us do for not a ton of money? We don't want to spend $100 a day to go to Sea World or Disney.

You will need a rental car for most, if not, all of these.

You could try some things on International Drive like: Ripley's Believe it or Not, Wonderworks, The Titanic Exhibit, The CSI Experience or Fun Spot Action Park. At night you could see a dinner show like Sleuth's Mystery Dinner or Pirate's Dinner Adventure. If you are looking for a little nightlife you can go to CityWalk on Universal property. You don't need a park ticket to enjoy that, just pay for parking in the garage. You could do a helicopter tour of the city- some are a lot less expensive than you'd think.

There is a lot to do in Orlando for every budget. Take a look at this website for more ideas in the International Drive area: internationaldriveorlando.com/thingsToDo/ind…

I hope this helps!

You could go to Downtown Disney, Disney's Boarwalk or Universal's City Walk. All are free to get in to, and there is quite a bit going on to keep you entertained. We have also enjoyed going to Celebration (Disney's idea of community living). Thie main street there has some neat shops.

Not sure what you are in to but Gatorland is pretty neat as well and not to expensive.
