How to Organise a Successful Holiday to Florida with Children

Organising a holiday is already a stressful task, but organising one that has to take into consideration your children’s needs is a whole other ball game. Not only do you have to ensure that they are entertained the entire time, both on the plane and throughout the holiday, but you also have to make sure that they are safe during your time away, too. However, it is more than possible to organise a successful trip to the sunshine state, even with your kids in tow.

Choose The Perfect Time To Travel

While you cannot guarantee the weather, the best time to actually visit Florida, Orlando is between January and April, as the temperatures aren’t scorching hot. It will still be warm enough for you and your kids to just wear a t-shirt and shorts, but it won’t be so unbearable that you want to spend the entire time indoors with the air conditioning on full blast.

Pack Toys That Will Entertain Them

Your children’s ages will affect which toys you bring on your trip. However, bringing a gaming console, such as the Nintendo Switch or a tablet that allows them to watch a film on Netflix, will keep them occupied while you are waiting for the plane and later when you are up in the air. If you have slightly older children, consider packing travel games that will stop the ‘I’m bored’ moments.

Popular options include:

  • Cards: Uno is great fun for both kids and adults alike
  • Travel Scrabble: Opt for a magnetic version to ensure you don’t lose any letters
  • Trivial Pursuit: Test your knowledge on just about any genre

Stay In The Resorts

Where you stay will make a huge difference to the success of your trip, and it all comes down to personal preference. If you have particularly small children and travel is often difficult, you might be better off staying in one of the resorts. Your children are sure to love it! By staying in one of the resorts, you also don’t have to worry about catering if you don’t want to. There are plenty of food options available in the resorts that offer a wide variety of food for even the fussiest of eaters.

Book Your Tickets In Advance

Without a doubt, your children will want to visit one, if not all, of the theme parks that Florida has to offer. So, to save you time and effort when you arrive in Florida, make it easier and cheaper on yourself by booking your tickets in advance. There are multiple options when it comes to picking family Orlando park tickets. If you are planning on spending the majority of your time at Disney World, you might be better off making the most of the 14-day Ultimate Ticket, but if you are interested in seeing multiple parks over a few days, then the 3 Park Explorer Ticket will be perfect.

Have Some Downtime

It will be nearly impossible to be on the go the entire time you are away, so be sure to schedule in downtime. Head back from the parks earlier some days, so that you can have a chilled-out evening watching TV, playing board games, or simply having a lie-down. After all the queuing and excitement of the day, getting in some much-needed rest will benefit all of you.
