If you are heading to Orlando, for theme parks, shopping or relaxation, did you know that there are plenty of places you can sign up to in order to get special discounts? I have compiled a list of lots of Orlando discounts and ways to save money in Orlando, from free food to money off at your favourite shopping attractions. Don't forget to share this post with anyone heading to Orlando! That way even more of us can save money before going to Orlando.
Why bother with Orlando discounts?
A trip to Orlando isn't exactly cheap so I am a big fan of saving money however I can. Although we work really hard to visit Orlando every single year (and twice last year!) I still like to make savings on travel wherever possible. Check out these Orlando money saving tips.
When to sign up for these Orlando discounts
Sign up for the discounts less than a week before you head off to Orlando – some vouchers arrive instantly via email, and some take a couple of days to arrive. I would recommend signing up around 3 days before you leave.
Make filling in the forms easier
Typing in your name, address, phone number, email address and birth date over and over again is a lengthy process. Utilise a form filler to get the job done quicker. Your web browser might have one, or you could use LastPass for free.
A few other tips to save money before going to Orlando
I would recommend that you sign up for a new free email address, or you will be bombarded with promotional emails after your visit. Let me tell you, getting a discount coupon for your favourite restaurant six months after your trip can be gut wrenching.
Don't forget to check your promotions tab (Gmail) or your spam folder for your coupons.
If the website will only accept a US address to register, you can use the address of your accommodation or pick a Disney park.

Apps for Orlando discounts
There are some great apps to download to your phone whilst in Orlando – some of them will only appear in your app store when you are in America.
- Chick Fil A
- GasBuddy – find the cheapest petrol
- Joann (bonus coupons when you download the app)
- Retail Me Not

Keep your receipts for Orlando discounts
After you have paid for your meal or shopping, look through your receipt to see if there is any sort of offer. Sometimes you can pop online and complete a short survey to get yourself a freebie next time you visit, or money off your shopping.
Groupon & Living Social
There is always something to choose from – we have managed to get two of us on the Disney Spring air balloon for just $10 using the first time customer discount code. Remember to enter code WELCOME to get money off your first Groupon.
There are even a few Disney discounts to choose from – you won't get park tickets, but there are tours and more.
Landry's Select Club
The Landry's Select Club is amazing, and I strongly recommend signing up. They have a physical card as well as an app you can use if the card doesn't arrive in time, or doesn't quite make it from America.
Here's how it works:
You sign up for a card that costs $25 to get a card with $25 loaded on. You can then use the card like a gift card in a number of restaurants, but what you are really after is the free $25 birthday bonus.
Every year, Landry's will add $25 onto your card in the month of your birthday. And they don't exactly check that the birth date you tell them is your actual birthday. Of course, than can change in the future.
That means you can get a card before you head to Orlando, have a birthday that month and get $50 to spend instead of $25! That's $25 for free. You can also earn yourself reward points.
You can use it at a variety of locations including Rainforest Cafe, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, T-Rex restaurant and Yak & Yeti.
