Take the kids on a trip of a lifetime and book a family holiday to Orlando for Easter.
Florida is one of the world’s best family holiday destinations. With 14 major theme parks and countless other attractions, you will be spoilt for choice for things to do. Stay on site at one of the Universal Studios hotels and get early access to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and enjoy mind blowing simulator rides from your favourite movies.

Walt Disney World is another must see – and contrary to what you might think, it’s not just for younger kids! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Pandora – The World of Avatar, are some of Orlando’s most popular attractions – you may need to spend longer in Disney than you think!
Let the kids see their favourite Disney characters in street parades and make sure you catch the dazzling fire work displays.

However, you will see lots more than Universal Studios and Walt Disney World on your family holiday to Orlando. There are numerous water parks to choose from as well as Legoland, Peppa Pig World, and the Kennedy Space Center, which is just an hour’s drive away. And don’t forget the shopping! You need to allow a full day to explore the Florida Mall and the Premium Outlets.
I have chosen one of Universal Studios’ Hotels – Endless Summer Resort, the hotel that we stayed in last year. Not only has this new resort got family friendly facilities, but once you purchase park tickets, you will receive early access to Universal Studios parks, one hour before the parks open, and get free transport to and from the parks.
Family rooms and large family suites are also available that can cater for families of six.

I found flights with Delta Airlines / KLM with a stop in Atlanta or Boston, for €765 including checked baggage on the 24th of March, through Irish travel company e-Travel. If you prefer to fly direct from Dublin with Aer Lingus, the best price including checked baggage is €987 per person.
When you search via the link below you will see lots of cheaper options, however it I have added checked baggage in this airfare and also wanted a flight that went straight to the US (and not via London or an European airport), so you can clear immigration in Dublin airport before you fly.
A 10 night stay at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn & Suites is €2165 based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing. or a 2-bedroom suite is €2495 that sleeps up to six. And the best part – you only need a €100 deposit to book! If you wish to stay longer or come back earlier, simply edit the search on the links below to suit your requirements.
I have also priced 14 day tickets to Universal Studios below, these allow unlimited entry to all three Universal Studios parks for 14 days, and a €25 deposit secures your booking. There are many other ticket options available through Attraction Tickets.com including combination tickets that include entrance to Walt Disney World too.
There is lots to consider when booking a trip to Orlando but I’ve got a post that might help:
