Can Your Smart Phone Help You on Your Holiday?


Everywhere you look, you will see advancements in technology. Computers have gotten smaller, and now most of us carry small computers around in our pockets. You might call them a smart phone or a cell phone, but deep down inside, they are really computers. There are some people who use their phones to help them do just about everything. They can really come in handy when you need them. They can even come in handy when you are planning your holiday trip to Florida.

Planning Your Holiday From Your Phone

You may even be able to plan your entire holiday right from your little phone. If your phone has Internet access, and most of them do these days, then you will have no problems planning your entire holiday right from your phone.

This is something that can be done while you are taking a break on the job. Just don’t let the boss see you fooling around on the phone. You don’t want to lose your job. Then you won’t be able to afford your holiday if you don’t have a job!

Getting Around in Florida

In the old days, it was difficult to travel in a place that you were not familiar with. You might have to stop and ask for directions every once in a while, and you would definitely need a map to help you get from point a to point B. Today, things are completely different. You can pretty much get everything that you need from that little teeny computer that we call a phone.

These computers also have built-in GPS. You can see in real time where you are on the highways, and this makes it easy to navigate in a foreign place, but what about theme parks?

Using Your Smart Phone the Smart Way

This is one travel tip that is practically priceless. Almost every major theme park in central Florida now has their app that you can download for free to your phone. This app will tell you everything that you need to know about the park that you are currently in. You will be able to see a virtual map of the entire park which will include your current location. You will also be able to find out show times and if there are any delays on any of the attractions. This can be a huge time saver, especially if this is your first time visiting the theme park.

This single app could very well be the best thing for your holiday. It makes it extremely easy to navigate your way around whichever theme park you have chosen for your holiday. Trying to navigate these large theme parks the old fashioned way is still doable, but it is definitely a lot less convenient. You will spend most of your time just trying to figure out where you are, and where you have gone. Use your smart phone the smart way. Let it be our virtual guide through the theme parks.

If you are planning a holiday to Florida, make sure that you don’t forget your smart phone.
