The Sunshine State is particularly popular with families looking for the perfect holiday and, given the amount of family-friendly hotels in Orlando, it’s easy to see why. Across the board, Orlando hotels bend over backwards to accommodate visitors, whatever their itinerary. For many, a visit to Orlando is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so make the most of it by staying in one of the area’s opulent 5-star hotels or bag a bargain in some of the 4-star hotels. Whichever you chose, you can rest assured that you're never far from the major attractions.
Walt Disney World Resort needs no introduction but it does need some planning! With four theme parks, there is something for everyone. Featuring beloved Walt Disney characters, the enchanting Magic Kingdom Park is all about fairytales and fantasy and is perfect for little ones. Older kids and adults will love the Epcot Theme Park where the rides encourage imagination and creativity to expand your horizons. The Typhoon Lagoon is an aqua wonderland. Cascade down the waterslide at Gang Plank Falls, drift at your leisure along Castaway Creek or, if you’re feeling brave enough, swim with real sharks in the shark reef! Happily, there is no end of tasteful luxury hotels to retire to after a hard day’s fun!
Experience the magic of the movies at Universal Studios Orlando. Go behind the scenes and experience life on a working studio lot. If you’re lucky, you might even get a chance to become an extra! Younger kids will enjoy parading with their favourite Nickelodeon characters, while tricky tweens will appreciate the Simpsons’ Ride. Towering over 17 stories above Universal Studios, the Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket is a rollercoaster so terrifying it has even been known to silence stroppy teens!
If the children’s heads start to spin, take time out with a stroll around the Central Florida Zoo. If this doesn’t do the trick, decamp to one of the nearby spa hotels for some well-earned pampering. Chances are you'll need to recharge your batteries for the next day anyway!
Orlando has always been a popular holiday destination, so take the hassle out of your stay and book into one of the excellent airport hotels near to Orlando International Airport. A word of advice though; theme parks can be exhausting, so do everyone a favour and research the rides before you go. You’ll need to have your wits about you to survive the crowds and the queues and, of course, the demands of your little darlings!
