Holidays to Orlando

Take your family on jam-packed, magical Orlando holidays. Famous for its world-class theme parks and non-stop sunshine, Orlando is a world within itself – but it’s not just the top attractions that have visitors flocking to this sun-soaked state.

Situated in the true Sunshine State of Florida, Orlando is blessed with incredible weather all year round and is surrounded by a wealth of fascinating landscapes and natural beauty.

As soon as you step out of the theme park’s gates on your holidays in Orlando, the allure of this city cannot be ignored. Wander down charming, tree-lined avenues oozing with culture; explore a myriad of art galleries, museums and leafy parks or simply kick back and enjoy the laid-back rhythms of this unique destination.

Thrills and Spills

From waltzing through Disney World to uncovering Universal Studios and relaxing in Lake Buena Vista, you’ll make some great discoveries on your Orlando holidays.

Visit International Drive for a synaesthesia of sensory enjoyment. This vibrant area is home to an array of restaurants, all serving up delicious pancakes and other authentic American delights. Make your way around the clubs, bars and fairgrounds, taking in a round of golf at some of the iconic golf clubs in the area.

From lively amusement parks to rodeos, abundant in Western style and American kitsch, Kissimmee is a vibrant destination with some sights, sounds and tastes not to be missed. The long 192 Highway that cuts through the area will undoubtedly be the centre of your time here and it is filled to the brim with gift shops, restaurants and great attractions.

If you want to catch a glimpse of Disney magic away from the parks, head to the town of Celebration. This community is built and run by Disney and offers an array of boutique stores, vintage architecture, and small glimpses of Mickey Mouse at every corner.

Fun, Fast and Fabulous

Of course, Orlando holidays aren’t complete without visiting at least one of its excellent theme parks. Hang out with Micky and the gang at Disney World Resort, get caught up in the spellbinding magic of Harry Potter in the Universal Orlando Resort or dive into SeaWorld. Kids and adults alike won’t be able to resist the unique atmosphere of these top class theme parks.

Venture into Animal Kingdom, make a splash in Typhoon Lagoon and take a step into the future in the Magic Kingdom, all within the confines of the Disney World Resort. Universal Orlando Resort is just as thrilling, where you can jump through city streets with Spiderman, hop on a broomstick with Harry Potter and help E.T. phone home – the possibilities are endless on your holidays to Orlando.

Away from the rollercoasters and parades, the surrounding area provides endless opportunities for cultural exploration, with a vibrant performing arts scene that must be experienced. Take a day trip to Daytona Beach for some NASCAR watching or explore the South Gold Coast all the way down to Miami. When it all gets too much, head to one of the countless parks and gardens for some much-needed relaxation among the lush greenery – the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of lively Orlando.
