In this report

Planning a vacation can be a little overwhelming. No one wants to arrive at a destination and then find out about hidden fees or discover a nightmare scenario. This article helps you avoid that. Best of Orlando, Undercover Tourist and Zagat are the top three sites that we could find online.

We compiled information about each so that your travel planning could be a little more stress-free. Each company in this comparison has a reputation for offering solid information and reliable customer service and insider tips. Whether you want to find the hottest restaurants, discounted attraction tickets or to spend a day on a deep-sea fishing boat, these sites provide the information you need to make your dreams happen.  

#1 - Undercover Tourist

Undercover Tourist can help you plan the vacation of your dreams. Undercover Tourist is the leading supplier of discount tickets for the Orlando area, they provide strong customer service and have appeared in Frommer's, and Travel and Leisure. Undercover Tourist provides discount tickets for Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and other Florida attractions at your fingertips.

In short, they make it possible for your dream vacation to have the lowest possible price tag. Plus, Undercover Tourist is an authorized seller of discounted admission tickets. This means that tickets come directly from the attractions and are not simply unused tickets from the stay of another traveler. Tourists can have peace of mind when ordering.

Some of the attraction tickets that are available include:

  • Planet Hollywood VIP voucher
  • Cirque du Soleil
  • Kennedy Space Center
  • Gatorland
  • Orlando Balloon Rides
  • Everglades and Miami adventure

In addition to hotel reservations and discounted admission tickets, Undercover Tourist provides planning tips and advice. They offer a smart phone app that is so good, that Fox News named it the "Best App for taking on Walt Disney World"

Tickets are purchased online or through one of three toll-free phone numbers. They have a refund policy and are bonded through the State of Florida. All of this goes into providing a worry free shopping experience.

#2 - Zagat

When it comes to reviews on restaurants and attractions, Zagat is the name that stands out from the rest. When it comes to providing user generated reviews on a local level, this company leads the globe. What originally began as a hobby by Tim and Nina Zagat has become the most trusted source of review information for restaurants, hotels and activities worldwide. If you are looking for information on things to do in the Orlando area, Zagat can help.

The input is based on input by customers of restaurants or attractions. The data is compiled, scored and the ratings are given. Reviews come from actual quotes that have been submitted by Zagat members. Accessing the information can be done online, via smart phone or through a number of printed publications. The information can be used to supplement reviews from other sources and has a reputation for being reliable.

A downside to this information is that you must be a Zagat member to access it. Currently the annual membership fee is $24.95. A seven day free trial subscription is available and a credit card is required to set that up. This can be prohibitive for potential customers. Those who travel frequently may derive the most benefit from becoming a member. Vacationers may also find that a membership provides valuable information.
