Why Orlando for Families?

Overflowing with iconic attractions and first-class facilities, there's little wonder that Orlando is a longstanding favourite for family holidays. Filled with exciting experiences and fuelled by childhood nostalgia, the enchanting playground of magic kingdoms and wizarding worlds transcend generations. One of the few places on earth that may as well have been designed by kids – Orlando ticks all the boxes for entertaining everyone from your new born to your Nan.

Thrill-seeking teenagers can test their nerves on rollercoasters that hurtle upwards of 70mph, while your little ones come face to face with their favourite cartoon characters at meet-and-greets. Dad can sneak off to sample the local craft beer scene, and mum can treat herself to some retail therapy at one of the premium outlets. If you prefer to stick together, the whole gang can enjoy a guided tour of an African savanna in Disney's Animal Kingdom, before finishing up with an unforgettable fireworks display.

The best bit? At the end of an action-packed day you have a villa holiday haven to head back to. Tired tots return to a home from home, and equally-as-exhausted parents can have a relaxed evening to unwind in the comfort of their own front room. With villas that sleep up to 24 and enough amusements to keep the whole clan well entertained, there's plenty to do on the days you just want to laze. Theme park thrills and spills are replaced with splash happy mornings in your own private pool, with afternoons being reserved for some healthy sibling rivalry over an air hockey table.

Where to Stay in Orlando for Families

Whether you're after tranquil lakeside locations or holiday resorts that come with their very own golf courses, Orlando is overflowing with family friendly options. Prestigious gated communities are within a stone's throw of thrilling theme parks and essential amenities, giving you a chance to escape the bright lights for a lazy afternoon by the pool.

Carefree Kissimmee needs little introduction. Slightly outside of Orlando's central hub, this family-focused resort keeps the emphasis on explorations and relaxation. With plenty of must-sees away from the main parks, this sought-after spot has plenty of crowd-pleasing cards up its sleeve. Don't worry though, Walt Disney World Resort is still very much on your doorstep no matter where you choose to stay. Fabulously located Windsor Hills is just five minutes away, while the fantastic fairways at Highlands Reserve and Champions Gate makes it easy for dad to squeeze in a round or two.
