Family trips to Florida

For many children, there are few things in life that are more thrilling than the prospect of a trip to Disney World. To young eyes, the park is full of magic, excitement and familiar characters brought to life, so it’s no surprise that each year parents from all over the world like to treat their children to a trip there.

Where Disney World succeeds, however, is by branching out so that it has something to appeal to young kids, big kids, and everyone else’s inner child. For smaller children, the constant presence of Disney characters walking around, Disney themed shows and gentle rides equals a holiday in heaven. More adventurous visitors to the theme park can avoid the “It’s a small world” types of rides and opt instead for the bigger, scarier roller coasters, or visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios park for live shows and thrilling attractions. Alternately, anyone with a thirst for knowledge can check out Epcot to try some hands-on science and explore the world around them. After that, the whole family can enjoy the Animal Kingdom Park which combines rides and wildlife for a thrilling mixture of safari and adventure.

Disney World is located in an area that is simply bursting with theme parks, so visitors often choose to cover all bases in one big, adventure-packed trip. Anyone with an interest in film (or even just a love of theme parks) is bound to enjoy Universal Studios, which balances interactive experiences which give visitors insight into the film-making business with genuinely hair-raising rides and roller coasters. Big rides like Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rocket and Revenge of the Mummy will appeal to those with a taste for adrenaline, whilst Harry Potter enthusiasts can now explore the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and indulge their magical fantasies. Florida is also home to Sea World Orlando, where families can meet all manner of sea creatures and take in a few shows whilst they’re at it.
