Upcoming trip to Disney/Universal - so confused about how to plan it!!  (11 Answers)

Hi All,

We're going to Orlando in late March/early April for 14 nights. 2 adults and 2 kids (5 and 7). Flights and hotel booked but now the dreaded investigation into Disney tickets, what to do, where to eat, etc!!

If anyone can help with some sort of broad itinerary and helpful tips/hints/recommendations, that would be amazing! I've picked up a couple of brochures from travel agents and spoke to some people but it all seems a bit overwhelming!

We want to visit the main Disney parks and Universal (main reason I'm going is for Harry Potter world!) and do some shopping at the outlets. If we can fit it in, a trip to Kennedy Space Center would be great but since it's our first time in Orlando, I suspect that we'll be consumed with Disney/Universal.

Thanks in advance!

3 days in Orlando with 3 and 1 year old  (11 Answers)

Hi, I have read numerous posts on travelling to orlando with young kids and come up with this plan. Any thoughts?
Day 1 Magic Kingdom. Stay as long as kids can handle it.
Day 2 Animal Kingdom until early afternoon. Evening Disney Boardwalk
Day 3 Outlet shopping in the morning. Disney Springs in the afternoon/evening

Also with the above plan is it really worth while renting a car when all the major hotels provide free shuttle's to the places we want to go.

Best area to rent a villa for Disneyworld  (4 Answers)

Hi there, my family (4 adults & 2 children) are planning a Disney holiday next May. We have decided that we would rather rent a villa than stay in a hotel so that we would have the ability to all chill out together in the evenings and so that the children can go to bed if they wish as we are planning an action packed holiday.

Trouble is there are hundreds/thousands to choose from and I don't know which would be the best area to be in. We would like to be reasonably close to Disney but also be able to walk to restaurants/bars in the evening if we wish. Can anyone tell me which would be a good area to look at please?

Also, I know that a lot of hotels run shuttles to the theme parks but was wondering if there is any public transport we can get rather than drive ourselves every day?

Any help would be appreciated. :)

6 hours to kill in Orlando after the cruise.  (10 Answers)

We are going to be off the ship by 9 am. Our flight in not until 6 pm. The transportation company we use offers luggage storage, but i can not decide on the attraction we would like to visit. I think going to Disney would be just a waste of money. My sister wants to go to the outlets, but i don't think its a good idea...we have 2 four year old boys and a 7 year old girl. Or maybe we should just to go Downtown Disney (Disney Springs) ... Any suggestions?

Alaskan Licence Plates  (1 Answer)

Every holiday we play a game with our two boys to spot as many different US States licence plates while we drive around Orlando. This holiday is our best yet we have spotted 49 out of the 50 US States with only Alaska to go. We've tried everything to spot one to no avail. We only have 3 days left! Does anyone know where we could find one on a friends vehicle or a colleague you may know in the vicinity of Orlando. Any advice would be greatly appreciated and you'd make two (three!) boys very happy. Thanks in advance.
