What do you want to do?

Disney's Coronado Lake Resort (Virgin Holidays Ltd)

Here are some things to think about when you are trying to narrow down what you want to pack into your holiday.

  • Buy your copy of a Brit Guide to Orlando for all the best information.
  • Where to stay: Think about your location in relation to where you want to visit.
  • Split holidays: Perhaps you'd like to split your holiday by having a week or two in Orlando and a week elsewhere, such as the Gulf Coast, Miami or the Florida Keys.
  • Parks: Look at our Park round-up and make a note of which of the 8 ‘must-see’ parks – Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens – are your priorities. If you have only a week, drop Busch Gardens and focus on Disney, Universal and SeaWorld. As a basic rule, the Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot (but there are fewer rides at Epcot to amuse the younger ones) – allow 1–2 days. The Animal Kingdom Park is also a little short on attractions for the youngest visitors, but it still requires nearly a whole day. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is usually possible to do in a day (not forgetting the evening Fantasmic! show), while SeaWorld needs rather longer and Universal Studios can be a 2-day park at its busiest. Islands of Adventure will almost certainly keep everyone (except possibly under-5s) busy all day, too. Busch Gardens is another full-day affair.
  • Attractions: Which other attractions do you want to see over the length of your stay? Silver Springs, the water parks, Bok Tower Gardens, Gatorland or Fantasy of Flight all offer great attractions.
  • What about the evenings: Downtown Disney and Universal’s CityWalk are both worth your time. Dinner shows provide a lot of fun; 2-hour cabarets based on themes like medieval knights, pirates, Arabian Nights and murder mysteries that all include a hearty meal. Rounding it up is the huge variety of nightclubs and bars, many offering live music.
  • Shopping: Take a look at our spotlight on shopping opportunities.
