6 ways to survive Florida with children


For some parents even going to the supermarket is hard work with children in tow so deciding to take your little darlings to Florida could leave you feeling daunted. But with careful planning and preparation Florida holidays in 2013 should be a walk in the park. These tips should help you not to feel overwhelmed in Orlando!

1. Do Disney!

How to cope with Disneyworld holidays is a whole other article but as the ultimate destination in the world of multi centre holidays it is a must for your trip. With four theme parks, two water parks and numerous activities Disneyworld easily caters for children and adults alike. Dining options could also be a magical experience as many places offer ‘character meals’ so your children can share their dinner with Mickey, Jasmine or Lilo and Stitch to name but a few.

2. Home sweet home

They say a change is as good as a rest but too much change can be a bad thing. Looking for villas in Florida to rent is a good way to keep the kids in their routine and avoid the restrictions of hotel meal times and potential noise pollution from other travellers. Villas give your children space and beautiful surroundings making them a dream home from home for the duration of your stay.

3. Sail away

Sometimes the journey can be as important as the destination and it can be difficult to occupy children in the confines of a ‘plane, but with travel agencies offering affordable cruise and stay holidays this is a thing of the past. With swimming pools, climbing walls and entertainment galore cruise ships offer the same as twin centre holidays but all in one place.

4. Water babies

If your little ones are more at home in the water than on dry land then taking your holidays in Orlando in 2013 are perfect. For animal attractions visit Sea World which boasts numerous non-aquatic zoological displays as well as its marine life alongside roller coasters and a water park. Or if they really prefer to be in the water then the Wet n’ Wild Water Park will keep them happy from dawn till dusk.


5. A, B, C

Florida holidays offer more than just fun. The Orlando Metropolitan Area is a brilliant find for older children and those who want culture as well as excitement. Home to the Central Florida Ballet and the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre to name but a few this district will keep your little culture vultures in high spirits.

6. Back to nature

Orlando has more theme parks and entertainment attractions than anywhere else in the world but sometimes it can be good to get back to basics. Consisting mostly of lakes and swamps and with tours in to the wetlands available finding some ‘gators shouldn’t be too difficult so your children can see them in their natural habitat. If you’d rather see them at a safer distance then visit Gatorland which is home to thousands of alligators and crocodiles and is ever expanding thanks to their breeding marsh, complete with boardwalk and observation tower.

So there you have it, holidays to Orlando needn’t be stressful. Whether you choose a Disneyworld holiday or a cruise and stay package, your Orlando holiday will be a once in a lifetime experience for both you and your children.
