How do you top a visit from Santa? Spend New Year in Orlando! Surprise the kids with a holiday of a lifetime, or better still – make it their Christmas present!
Ten days is just enough time to see the main sights in Orlando. Any shorter and you will have to come back, any longer and you will get bed spins at night time! Visit the amazing Universal Studios (my personal favourite) where you will see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter as well as mind blowing simulator rides from your favourite movies. For any little ones, Disney World is a must. Let them see their favourite Disney characters in street parades and make sure you catch the dazzling fire work displays. Of course there is also numerous water parks, animal parks, Discovery Cove ( where you can swim with dolphins ) Legoland and Seaworld! For more information on Orlando you can read my blog here.
I found a great deal staying in the popular Rosen Inn International on International Drive. Highly rated on tripadvisor and in an excellent location, this is the perfect spot to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer. Fly from Dublin to Orlando on the 27th of December and enjoy a ten night stay during the school holidays, for only €3399 based on two adults and two children sharing.
TOP TIP: There are cheaper flights available if you don’t mind longer flying times. I chose American Airlines for this deal as they have only one stop and shorter flying time. When selecting your flights tick the following boxes on the left hand side to get flights with good connections. ‘One stop’ and ‘no change airport during connections’ and reduce the flying time to less than 15 hours. The best option is a flight via Philadelphia leaving at 1o35 and returning at 1805.
