For an exciting family vacation that you and the kids will remember for a long time, head down to the Sunshine State of Florida! Along with the miles of gorgeous beaches and resorts, there are tons of attractions that the kids will absolutely love. Check out the Map of Florida created by FloridaTix to find your way around, the map will plot the shortest and quickest route for you to get from attraction to attraction as well as highlighting local amenities along the way. If you also are staying in a nearby hotel you can simply put the hotel postcode in and it will plot the route to your favourite attractions, such as:
Disney World It pretty much goes without saying that Disney World is one spot you can’t miss on a trip to Florida with the family. Its many theme parks are designed to offer something for every age; kids will love the Magical Kingdom while adults will get lost in Epcot Future World, and everybody loves the Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Don’t miss the chance to swim with the sharks at the Typhoon Lagoon, search for the yeti at Expedition Everest in the Animal Kingdom, and learn all about how they create crazy movie effects at the Extreme Stunt Show in Hollywood Studios. It will take you days to get through the whole park (in fact, don’t even try! Research the different areas beforehand to find out the spots you want to see the most, and use your time accordingly.) To experience the best of Disney World, it’s best to stay for at least four days, and ticket prices get cheaper when you stay longer anyway. If you plan on staying for four days or more, look into packages that throw in free park tickets or food with your accommodation.
Kennedy Space Center If you kids are interested in space, the Kennedy Space Center is a great place to educate and inspire them about this fascinating field! Kids and parents alike will be thrilled by the interactive and engaging exhibits. Not only is this a top-notch museum, but you’ll get to see the actual launch site of the Apollo moon missions, and where many shuttles are still launched today. You’ll definitely want to allow a full day to experience the Kennedy Space Center. A bus will guide you on a Tour of Restricted Areas where you’ll see where shuttles are built and launched. The rest of your day is spent exploring the museum’s full-scale shuttle models, flight simulators, I-Max theaters and kids can even sign up for an Astronaut Training Experience.
For a whale of an experience, bring the family to Sea World in Orlando. The park immerses guests in the wonders of the sea with its magnificent creatures and incredible attractions. Ride Manta, the thrilling flying roller coaster, then explore the Manta Aquarium down below. Visit the famous killer whale Shamu and get inspired by the new “One Ocean” show promoting the message that we’re all part of one world with one ocean, and it’s ours to protect. Dive into the world of sea turtles at Turtle Trek, and go all the way down south in the new Antarctica exhibit.
The perfect place for kids and the kid in all of us, Legoland is a 150-acre interactive park with a variety of themed areas. From Lego Kingdoms to the Land of Adventure, Water Park and Imagination Zone where kids can build their own creations, there is something for everyone at Legoland. Kids can race their own cars and boats, go on a Safari Trek and ride a Dragon Coaster. Save the water park for a second day, as Legoland itself has plenty to see for a full day! Bring snacks so you can eat after the lunch rush, as the cafes will all be packed from 12:00 to 1:30. Make sure to order tickets online and pre-print them to avoid the massive queues at the entry.
