Orlando is the world's best destination for immense theme parks and unbeatable days out for all the family. With tropical weather all year round and a convenient location in the heart of Florida not too far from some of the state's stunning beaches, it makes for a holiday brimming with excitement and adventure.
Orlando is in the state of Florida, in the southern part of the United States of America. This means it enjoys very hot, sunny weather for most of the year. While summer months are the most popular time of year for Orlando holidays it might be wise to avoid them and opt for January to May or October to December instead. The weather will be cooler and less humid and the queues at themeparks will be a little shorter! The best ways of getting around Orlando are by bus, hire car or taxi. Orlando's timezone is GMT -4.
By far the most well known of all Orlando's theme parks is Walt Disney World Florida, where you can meet Disney's best loved characters and live the ultimate magical experience. Other Orlando holidays highlights include SeaWorld, where sea creatures welcome visitors to their watery world, and Universal Studios, where classic films come to life. Remember to fulfil a once in a lifetime opportunity and swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove and ride your way around The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Those who fancy a break from their action packed Orlando holidays might find some respite at the closest beach to the city, Cocoa Beach. It's clean and safe and there are a lot of great restaurant and food options nearby making it a great option when travelling with kids. A trip to Orlando wouldn't be complete without paying a visit to super-sized shopping centre, The Florida Mall and grabbing some bargains.
