This holiday to Florida, the ‘sunshine state’ has something for everyone. Orlando, known as the theme Park Capital of the World, boasts thrilling parks, where you can enjoy the adrenalin rush of the innovative rides and see movies brought to life. They say it takes more than 62 days to experience every visitor attraction in Orlando, so squeeze in as much adventure as you can!
Orlando’s most iconic landmark is undoubtedly the turreted Cinderella Castle that stands in the centre of the original Disney theme park, the Magic Kingdom, at Lake Buena Vista. SeaWorld is located between the Disney parks at Lake Buena Vista and downtown Orlando, and has been making a major splash in central Florida for more than a quarter of a century, it remains a favourite with visitors young and old.
After the action and adventure of Orlando the soft white sand and warm waters of St Pete’s Beach will bring a welcome change of pace. St. Pete’s Beach is a postcard-perfect seaside destination, on Florida’s Gulf Coast, with a seemingly endless expanse of sand at the seafront. You might be lucky enough to see dolphins frolicking just off shore as you relax at this incredible beach resort. St Pete’s is a great destination for water sport enthusiasts with eight major barrier islands off shore as well as parasailing, stand-up paddle boarding (SUP), windsurfing and kiteboarding.
Orlando-Wait to get your Autographs at Epcot rather than Magic Kingdom where the lines are much shorter, and all the Characters are found together.

Orlando-When you want to buy Butterbeer, always go to Hog's Head. Often, the lines for Butterbeer there is so much shorter than the concession stands outside, and its a wonderful place to relax in a great view outside.
