Orlando is without doubt one of the most popular destinations in Florida. Although situated in central Florida, it’s just an hour’s drive from the Atlantic and just two hours from the stunning beaches of the Gulf Coast. It’s hot and sunny all year round so you are almost guaranteed to get beach weather no matter what time of year you go.
The area is divided up into five main resorts – International Drive, Wet ‘n Wild Orlando, Universal Resort Orlando, Kissimmee and Lake Buena Vista. Accommodation is very much family oriented and you can choose from a range of hotels and fabulous Orlando villas.
As with other types of accommodation in the area, Orlando villas range from the simple and functional to the super luxurious and OTT, so no matter what your budget is you’ll find one to suit you and your family. They offer great value for money if you decide to rent one roomy enough for two families and, as all come equipped with cooking facilities, you can save even more money by eating in if you fancy it.
With so much to do in Orlando it’s a good idea to make a rough holiday plan when you arrive. Decide early on what you want to see and give yourself plenty of time to do everything. There’s nothing worse than going home wishing you’d seen and done a bit more! If theme parks are the main attraction for you and the kids then look at Orlando villas close to the Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. If you’d prefer to stay somewhere a bit more off the beaten track, Orlando villas in the beautiful Lake Buena Vista area would be worth checking out. Either way, make sure to book early to get the pick of the bunch!
From getting cuddled by Mickey or Goofy to getting splashed by Shuma the killer whale, Orlando offers once in a lifetime experiences for kids (and adults) of all ages. If it’s one of those places you’ve always wanted to go, make this year the year you finally do it!
