Things to do in Orlando
We think it's fair to say and pretty obvious that Orlando is one place you won't ever get bored of. There's so many things to do during your Florida Holiday so here's a few ideas for you to choose from....
Disney World Resort
It goes without saying that a trip to Disney World is a must do on your Florida Holiday. Buying a 14 day ultimate pass from Tailormade Florida gives you unlimited admission to The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, MGM Studios, Wide World of Sports and of course the two fantastic water parks Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon. There is endless fun for people of all ages. Meet your favourite cartoon characters, see the legendary fireworks at Epcot, watch parades along Main Street, or enjoy a sumptuous 'character dining experience' in the company of Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck & their friends!
Experience the thrills at Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure. There's something for every member of the family, from the hilarious Shrek 3D to the amazing Wizarding World of Harry Potter to name just a couple. Buy a 14 day 2 Park Universal pass and get unlimited admission to both parks and of an evening, definitely check out Universal Citywalk there are restaurants, bars & clubs, live shows, and much more. For adrenalin junkies young or old, you will find some of the most daring and thrilling roller coasters such as Hulk, The amazing adventures of Spiderman & Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket - to name just a few.
Fun Spot Action Park
Have a great family time out at this award winning Amusement Park. Fun Spot is located on International Drive and had traditional rides catering for the very young to the older generation. Unlike the other parks, at Fun Spot you pay only per ride, there's free parking and if you fancy a family tournament, we can definitely recommend the go-karting they have at the park. Top day out without busting mum and dad's credit card!
A trip to Discovery cove is a once in a lifetime 'must do'. It's an all-inclusive day out limited to around 1300 persons in the park each day (to give everyone time to make the most out of the experience.) Enjoy a thrilling 30 minute swim with the Dolphins, snorkel with sting rays and fish in the newest addition to this incredible theme park, Grand Barrier Reef. The all-inclusive experience means you get breakfast, lunch and unlimited drinks while in the park. Memories to last a lifetime
Kennedy Space Centre
No trip to Orlando is complete without a day visiting the Kennedy Space Centre, 60 miles east of Orlando at Cape Canaveral. Take a tour of NASA'S launch and landing facilities, experience the shuttle simulator and discover how it feels to be an astronaut. You can even meet and dine with an astronaut too! A thrilling day out for everyone.
Catch a basketball game while holidaying in Orlando - it is great fun even if you're not an avid fan. The Orlando Magic's are in the NBA (the premier league of basketball) and their home games are played in the Amway Arena, Orlando - just a short drive from wherever you are staying. It's well worth checking online to see when their home games are and if it matches your holiday dates. It's great fun for all the family, relatively inexpensive and there's a brilliant atmosphere guaranteed!
Located between Orlando and Kissimmee and open now more than 60 years, Gatorland is a unique park showcasing Hundreds of Alligators & Crocodiles in their natural environment. Get up close and personal with them (not too close though of course!). Fun for all the family doesn't stop there, try out the awesome Gator zip line, enjoy an animal show or why not check out the free flight aviary. It's an excellent day out with some educational experiences along the way, the children will be talking of this for years to come.
