Offering families more than 400 places to stay, an abundance of themed parks, outdoor adventures, dining, and shopping, it is no wonder Orlando has become such a popular destination choice. Orlando Family Holidays are a great way to create some of the best memories you will have for years to come. Visitors to Orlando can enjoy golf on one of more than 170 courses, a flight in a 1930s open-cockpit biplane, a stroll through immaculate, magical gardens or a tranquil hot air balloon ride over the central region.

What are the Accommodation Choices in Orlando?

Orlando has more than 400 hotels of varying levels of accommodation budgets and amenities. This means there is something to suit every budget and every need. Families can choose from four and five-star hotels to luxurious golf resorts, quaint bed and breakfasts and themed hotels.

Visitors of all ages can immerse themselves in the local activities. The Sunshine State offers endless options from theme parks, railway trips, beach, and water sports to sightseeing, shopping, fishing, golfing and dining.

Take a once in a lifetime swamp ride as you buzz around numerous gators in an airboat. Gatorland offers visitors a chance to get up close with some of the local wildlife.
