Everyone automatically thinks of “the happiest place on earth”, Disney World, whenever they hear about Orlando, but that's definitely not all there is to do here. Visiting Orlando takes plenty of planning ahead if you want to catch as many attractions as possible, as well as meet a few of your favorite Disney characters. You won't need to sacrifice anything if you need oxygen therapy – like missing out on the vacation of a lifetime – with the help of one of our portable oxygen concentrator rentals, and our helpful customer service representatives.
When flying, make sure you notify your airline of your plans to bring along a portable oxygen concentrator, and they will let you know what you need to bring with you in the way of battery power. Some airlines require that you have enough battery charge to last for 150% of the trip. You will be able to add as many batteries as you need to your rental package.
Early fall is really the best time of year to plan for your trip to Orlando. During the peak of the summer, the temperatures will climb to an average well over 90 degrees. Spring and winter see more rain than the other months, and fall sees less thunderstorms than during the summer. It will also still be warm enough in the late fall to go swimming if you can. If you need constant oxygen, and swimming is out of the question, you can count this out of your criteria. Be careful of the summer heat, since high temperatures can be hazardous to people with lung conditions.
If you're bringing the family and you've already planned on visiting The Magic Kingdom, head on over to Discovery Cove to pet the dolphins and enjoy the atmosphere of the place, which is like a tropical oasis. Around the World at Epcot is one of the best things to do while in Orlando, but just make sure you can spend a whole day here, as there is a lot to see. Leave your hotel with plenty of battery power to last you the whole day, because you will definitely need it. Sea World, Wet n Wild Water Park and Gatorland are all located in the same area, so you can make your way to each on different days of your vacation.
“LYNX” is one of the main public transportation companies in Orlando, but there are plenty of other ways to get around if you don't want to rent a car. Your oxygen rental is already approved and fine to bring aboard the bus, or whatever mode of transportation you choose. If you travel by car, you will be able to charge your portable concentrator via the car's power outlet to save battery power.
Even if you are pulling your unit along with the wheel car that came with it (as is the case with some of the heavier portable models), you won't need to worry about not being able to get it onto a bus, or getting stuck in a crowd – the carts are made to be slim, lightweight and easy to maneuver through small spaces and over the bumpiest terrain. Getting your concentrator around shouldn't be a concern, because having fun should be.
