Orlando, Florida is one of our all-time favourite family destinations. There is just so much to do and see for family members of all ages that you are guaranteed a boredom-free holiday.

4 Reasons Orlando is a perfect family holiday destination for summer 2017
So whether you’re a seasoned pro or planning the trip of a lifetime, read on for 4 reasons why we think a summer holiday in Orlando will be the best holiday ever!
1. There are Theme Parks for all ages
Orlando is the ultimate theme park destination. There really is a park to suit everybody both young and old. Of course its home to Disney World, the flagship of the Disney theme parks and the most visited holiday resort
in the world, but there are tons of other parks to choose from.
Universal Studios movie themed rides are perfect for film buffs, while the more daring cartoon and comic book themed rides at the Universal’s Island of Adventure will appeal to older daredevils.
For little visitors the newly expanded Duplo Valley in Legoland Florida
provides lots of gentle fun rides including an air-conditioned barn with playhouses, slides, and DUPLO building blocks.
2. Unique outdoor activities
If you’ve had enough of theme parks or just fancy a different type of experience Orlando has plenty of other options. The city’s sunny climate means there are a whole range of exciting and unique outdoor activities.
How about some paddle boarding or a hot air balloon ride? Or for a traditional Florida experience you can go on an airboat ride through a swamp to spot local wildlife. Swimming with Dolphins is another popular activity for visitors to Orlando.
For something that is both educational and fun try the Kennedy Space Centre tour. It will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about space travel through interactive exhibits and simulators.
3. You can shop ‘til you drop!
If you are looking for some retail therapy that will appeal to all the family you’ve come to the right place. Orlando is a shopper’s paradise with malls and outlets to suit every budget.
The Orlando International Premium Outlets offer 180 top brand stores
selling at bargain prices. Meanwhile the huge Florida Mall offers over 250 stores and a dining pavilion all under one air conditioned roof.
There is also the massive Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and Ron Jon Surf Shop for the outdoor enthusiasts and the PGA Tour Superstore for the golfer in your life. Make sure you have plenty of space in your luggage!
4. Direct flights
We know that travelling with kids can be stressful so you’ll be delighted to know that Aer Lingus flies direct from Dublin to Orlando. This cuts down on the hassle and extra stress of having to take two flights, particularly if you have very young children.
With immigration clearance already taken care of in Dublin airport, once you step off the flight in Orlando your holiday can begin. Orlando airport is located only 6 miles from the city and there are numerous transport options available.
The best value packages combine accommodation, flights and park tickets.
Our Florida specialists can put together the package to suit your family, pocket and favourite theme parks. Have a look at our Orlando holiday packages
