Why not book a holiday with confidence with Luxury Escapes by Katie Walsh. Orlando is a well-known state in Florida but also known for its wild theme parks and fantastic weather all year round. Excellent for winter sun or summer sun, weather doesn’t change throughout the year.
This is the best place to take your youngsters; this is a place they’ll never forget. With millions of parks, you’ll be spoilt for choice where to take them.
Rectently opened is the famous The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Studios Resort, why not take a trip down Hogsmeade and visit the famous Hogwarts Castle.
The first place we would recommend is Walt Disneyworld, it is the most brilliant park with two water parks they have, they also have the famous Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood studios and even downtown Disney. You are literally spoilt for choice with where to go with for Disney, then we recommend going to the universal island of adventures with all your favourite marvel based characters come to life.
But in Orland it isn’t just about the parks, there is also millions of fabulous golf courses for the dads and the famous ‘Maceys’s’ for the mother to enjoy some retail therapy in these beautiful malls in the International Drive.
Orlando has the most jaw dropping hotels, villas and apartments. It would be much cheaper if you had your own villa out there if you’re travelling with a large party. But if that’s not your style you can also stay in Kissimmee and International drive due to how close they are to the parks.
If you want to relax and soak up the vitamins D then you need to go to Kissimmee, Miami, Florida Keys and the Sanibel Islands for all the sandy beaches and clear blue sea that you need.
