Holiday Travel Guide
Walt Disney World® area

You know what time it is? It’s time to leave the ordinary world behind and leap into “The Place Where Dreams Come True."

With our Disney World® holiday packages, you can stay in a safari lodge while the lion sleeps tonight. Or you can experience the New Orleans French Quarter while staying in Orlando. There’s even a Polynesian Village with all the fixings of a Tahitian town. Not to mention the rides that will leave you wanting more.

If we had unlimited amounts of time we might be able to tell you about every one of the attractions you should hit during your Disney World® holiday, but here are a few must-sees and dos: Ride in an open-sided safari vehicle through Disney’s Animal Kingdom® to get up close and personal with African elephants, black rhinos and blue wildebeests. You won’t believe you’re in America and not Africa. Trade your khakis for mouse ears and head over to Disney’s Magic Kingdom® for classic Disney® attractions. Go on a wet n’ wild ride on Splash Mountain® in Frontierland—you have to make a goofy face in the picture. Next, experience a roller coaster ride on the tallest mountain in the world aboard Expedition Everest with ®. Just be on the lookout for the yeti who is known to make the Himalayan slopes his home. Your adventure isn’t complete without a picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle, so grab your friend, family, favourite Disney® characters or total strangers for a photo op that will stay on your fridge for a long time. It’ll remind you of how magical Disney World® holidays are.

At this pace, shopping is everywhere! Main Street, U.S.A.® is full of gift shops, candy stores and everything else in between. Be sure to stop in at the jewellers, Disney with ® clothes shops and the magic shop. Use one of Wotif’s Walt Disney World ® area car hire options to explore the rest of Orlando for other shopping options.

Like many theme parks around the world, Walt Disney World ® has its fair share of fast food. Delicious hot dogs and fried foods are all over, but there are a number of sit-down restaurants as well. If you want a unique experience, book a character meal and eat dinner with one of your favourite Disney® characters. How cool would it be to share a steak with Pluto?

When night-time comes, hop on the fireworks cruise around Bay Lake to catch the spectacular Electrical Water Pageant. Light floats of dragons, sea horses and crocodiles will keep you and the kiddos entertained. Want something more adult? Make your way over to the Atlantic Dance Hall for jiving and drinks. Be sure to see if your Disney World® packages include special events and promotions.

This isn’t your average theme park. This is a one-of-a-kind theme world and you need to go now. Browse Wotif’s Disney World® accommodation packages and choose the best one for you. It’s a wonderful world out there. Want to check out more of it? Then book one of our Orlando packages.
