For those of you who have been following this Mindanao lifestyle and travel blog, you may know that I was sent to the U.S. earlier this year to participate in a U.S. State Department fellowship. One of the U.S. cities that I visited was Orlando, Florida. Now if you’re thinking of bringing your family there soon, this article will be useful for you. Read on…
Low cost family holidays are the ticket to oversee adventures and quality time with your nearest and dearest. When it comes to your first time travelling abroad, short haul destinations such as holidays in Turkey, Majorca or the Greek Islands are an excellent choice.
Spreading your wings a little further afield, holidays Florida style are bound to be the trip of a lifetime for you and your youngsters. Known as the ultimate holiday hot spot for children and theme park fans, your Orlando escape will blow all other child friendly getaways out of the water.
Yes, Florida can be expensive. With such an overwhelming number of theme park tickets, attractions and events available, it can be easy to bust your budget without considering food, drinks and shopping for souvenirs.
To be frank, all of Orlando’s theme parks are out of this world, and taking a ten-hour flight and missing out any of the action would be foolish.
The most cost effective way to discover Orlando is to purchase a FlexPlus Ticket that will give you unlimited 14 day access into some of the most loved attractions in the area. This includes both Universal Parks, Wet n Wild, Aquatica, and SeaWorld.
In addition, with your FlexPlus Ticket, a shuttle service from Universal will transport you and your family to and from Tampa, where you can let your brood loose in the highly-acclaimed – and not to be missed – Busch Gardens Resort.
Most importantly, do not forget to purchase your Disney World Resort Pass. Currently a 14 day ticket is available for the price of a week’s entry, and gives you unlimited return access to all areas.
Most of all, expect long days, lots of travelling about and tired youngsters, but with these being the only cons, Orlando has plenty of pros to wash away any troubles.
Orlando Florida, the place where magic comes to life. Book your 2013 break today.
