Getting to Orlando

We have compiled the following guides to the most popular means of traveling to Orlando and the convention hotel.  While we have tried to make each guide as accurate as possible, travel conditions can change on a moments notice, so we can make no guarantee as to their accuracy.  Before leaving home, always double check your plans and directions, and check with reliable news sources for up-to-date traffic and weather conditions.

Orlando Weather

The weather in central Florida is a bit different from most other parts of the United States.  During July, be prepared for highs in the upper 90's (Fahrenheit) and lows in the low 70's, with light late afternoon rain showers being common.  Mornings tend to be mild, with the high of the day being reached around mid-afternoon, while evenings tend to be rather warm until after midnight.  So, you'll want to pack lightweight clothing and plenty of sunscreen, and don't forget your umbrella.

A Word on Gratuities and Tipping

For those visiting Megaplex from other countries (and those in the U.S. who may need a reminder), tipping (offering a small gratuity) is a very common and expected practice in the United States.  While not mandatory, it is considered good etiquette to leave a tip for service oriented workers (waiters, bartenders, drivers, barbers / hairdressers, etc.)  Amounts and practices do vary, but in general it is typical to leave 15 to 20% of the total bill for food service staff or $1 to $2 for most other situations.  We especially encourage our attendees to tip the hotel staff (restaurant servers, bartenders, bellhops, housekeeping), as that helps to let the hotel know how much we appreciate them hosting our convention.

For a complete guide to tipping in the United States, including more detailed suggested tipping rates, please see the WikiTravel Page on Tipping.
