Miles of white sandy beaches, a pleasant year-round climate and the undisputed theme park capital of the world – it’s no wonder that the fabulous state of Florida is America’s number one holiday destination. With popular attractions like Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom, Miami South Beach, Universal Studios, Sea World, Miami Beach, and Key West, there is plenty to see and do in Florida!
Millington Travel have been arranging holidays to Florida for over forty years, so we know what we are talking about. Our dedicated experts are Florida specialists and very adept at tailor making the ultimate Floridian holiday; be it a fun-filled and action-packed family theme park extravaganza, or an ultra-cool Miami city break, where you can dazzle in neon wonder.
Don’t think that Florida is all about sandcastles and rollercoasters – get off the beaten track and discover a hidden side to the state for a truly rewarding holiday. Contrast the laid-back beach resorts with fashionable Fort Lauderdale and the exquisite beaches of the Gulf Coast or head down to the beautiful Florida Keys, where the lifestyle is as horizontal as the landscape. You might just need it after a week of Orlando excitement and action.
Often referred to as the ‘Sunshine State’, Florida offers year-round temperatures in the low 20°C range during winter, and the low 30°C range in the summer. You can expect short, sharp showers in the afternoons. Hurricanes can form between June and October.
The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, also often called ‘Walt Disney World’ is situated in Bay Lake and Lake Buena Vista near Orlando in Florida. It’s easy to get to and there are plenty of fantastic places to stay on your holiday. We can help you choose the best resort hotels for you depending on what you want to do when you’re there. Speaking of which, there’s so much choice!
If you love rides try Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park or the Magic Kingdom Park – both are absolutely amazing. For the kids (big and small) there’s also the chance to meet a myriad of Disney characters in their own setting at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – it really does feel like you’re under the sea with Ariel or witnessing Star Wars’ march of the first order for real. You can meet Alice in Wonderland – literally in Wonderland – or join a pirate tutorial held by Jack Sparrow; the list goes on and on!
If rides aren’t your thing, have a go at cake decorating, kayaking, pony rides, golf or tennis. You can even spend a day in the spa and there’s always the water park.
Then there’s the food. From café’s to bakeries, ice cream parlours to fine food – whatever type of cuisine from whichever corner of the world you desire, there’s a good chance you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for at Walt Disney World in Florida. And when you’re ready for a drink, where better to enjoy a cocktail than a range of Disney settings, from the Barefoot Pool Bar set against a mountain backdrop in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to the jungle setting of the Maji Pool Bar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas?
