One of the most visited cities in the world, its easy to see why its vast array of theme parks and attractions might entice so many young families, but look beyond the family friendly glitz and glamour, and you'll find a vibrant city waiting to be discovered.
It's no secret that Disney World and Universal and a massive draw for the city, but there are literally hundreds of other family friendly activities in Orlando, from the water parks, aquariums and zoo's to the golf, the guided tours, the shows and the restaurants.
It's hotels range from the well known 5* chains, to small independents and boutique guest houses that often offer as much convenience and luxury as their bigger brothers but with the extra personal touch. Travelling with family, and there are a vast selection of resorts from the themed accommodation inside the parks to the more traditional "sit by the pool and relax (if you can!)" ones.
Known as the sunshine state, Florida (and Orlando) can typically be separated into the usual 4 seasons, but many people only consider 2 - hot, and hotter! The best time to visit is between September and November when temperatures drop to a more comfortable 24°C, humidity begins to reduce and the thunderstorms that begin in June are beginning to taper off.
With its popularity comes (sometimes unavoidable) times to steer clear. Between March and April when spring break is in full swing and from June to September during the summer holidays. I'd recommend October to early November if you can swing it.
There's not a lot to add that it doesn't scream for itself, and there isn't a child on the planet that wouldn't want to go, just make sure you plan ahead to get the best price, its a long way to go to not do everything, and there's a lot of everything in Orlando, so book your next trip now.
