Popular Family Holiday Destinations - Orlando
Orlando is an unforgettable holiday destination – especially for children. A magical world of theme parks, Florida sunshine and childhood heroes, it’s unsurprising that it’s a hugely popular destination for adults and children alike.
Organising an Orlando holiday can seem like an overwhelming experience – as well as choosing the hotel, flights, car hire and insurance, there’s a choice of theme-park tickets, attractions which need to be booked before you go and over-excited children to calm! Here, take a look at some of our best-loved Orlando hotels – all of which are perfect for a family holiday to Orlando.
When it comes to choosing which attractions you plan on visiting, you should consider the age of your children, the length of your stay and the time of year into account. Whilst Orlando is a hugely exciting place, you should always plan in a few days of down-time; otherwise the kids will be exhausted after just a few days away. The main attractions within Orlando include DisneyWorld, Universal Studios®, SeaWorld and Wet’n’Wild – but there are also museums, evening shows and outdoor activities. It’s a good idea to sit down as a family before you leave and discuss what you’d most like to visit – creating a plan that everyone agrees to will make the trip much less stressful – and will ensure the kids get up in the mornings whilst you’re away!

DisneyWorld is a collection of six different theme parks, each of which has a different theme. Whilst there are a selection of rides, attractions and shows at each, some are more targeted to small children than others – so you may not want to visit all of the parks.
