I created this resource page to easily share services, products, and companies that I use and/or those I know are valuable. While we all want our kids to experience new things and we want to have tons of family fun, we don’t have a limitless supply of funds. The list of recommendations below, are products and services that we at Orlando Family Fun Magazine recommend. They will help save you money, make your life easier, provide benefits to your family and more.

If you have any recommendations you think I should add to the list, let me know!

Discount Tickets

Groupon – I have been using Groupon for years to get discount tickets to restaurants and shows. I even use it when I am traveling to see what discounts I can get for a place that I am visiting.

Goldstar – Goldstar is new to the Orlando area, but I have been using their site for years since I lived in New York. It  is great for show tickets.

Orlando Sightseeing Pass – While you might think that this pass is only good for tourists, it isn’t. It is perfect for locals as well as it offers discounts on multiple attractions and the flex pass gives you 60 days to visit everything.

Tiqets – Tiqets has tickets for local, domestic and international attractions. They offer sale prices on individual locations as well as attraction bundles.

USA Savings Pass – The USA Savings Pass can be used in 13 cities throughout the US, including Orlando.  It provides $1000’s in discount offers on shopping, dining, and other activities.


Rakuten – I recently signed up for Rakuten and downloaded the app to my desktop. It notifies you when a site you are visiting has a rebate. Simply click on the activation button and the rebate is automatically applied. Sign up here to receive $10 back after you spend your first $25 on an Rakuten partner site.

Ibotta – Save money on your regular shopping trips. Ibotta helps you save groceries, clothes, toiletries, travel, and more. All you have to do is choose which items you want cash back for inside the app. Scan your receipt with your phone in the app and start saving. You get $10 for signing up through my link.


CheapO Air – Get the cheapest airfare for your trip. Research and book flights on over 600 airlines.

Discover Cars – Compare rental car prices for locations all over the world at Discover Cars.

EatWith – EatWith is a fun way to meet new people while traveling and eat in a local’s home. We have tried EatWith in a couple different locations and had a great time and a great meal.

Get Your Guide – If you are looking for a private tour without the private tour price, then you want to check out Get Your Guide. All tours are guided by locals and provide great insight into the location you are visiting.

Jetradar – Compare airline prices on Jetradar. They search hundreds of travel sites and airlines to get you the best price.

Trivago – Get deals from your favorite travel booking sites in one place. Compare rates and get the best price for your vacation.

Visitors Coverage – We highly recommend getting travel insurance when going on a trip; you never know what might happen before or during the trip. Visitors Coverage allows you to compare plans and get the one that best fits you.


ABC Mouse – ABC Mouse is for kids ages 2-8. It is a great program for teaching the kids the basics and beyond with fun lessons, games, activities and more.

Adventure Academy – Adventure Academy is the big sister to ABC Mouse. While ABC Mouse is for younger kids, Adventure Academy is for kids in grades 3-6. Kids get to go on adventures all while learning.

Cratejoy – If you love subscription boxes like we do, then you will love CrateJoy. Discover a ton of fun crates for kids including art, cooking, reading and more.

Epic Books – Epic Books has over 40,000 books for kids to read on their tablet. Kids can read the books that interest them and parents get a weekly update showing the stats of the books that their kids read.

Outschool  – Outschool has over 10,000 classes that will delight kids of all ages. My kids have taken numerous classes with them and they have loved them all. There are a variety of classes, including cooking classes, music classes, art classes, Harry Potter classes, math, science and much more!
