Orlando Suggested Itineraries

Nothing says "all-American family vacation" like a trip to down to sunny Orlando, Florida. The kids will be enthralled, laughing with the idols of the baby-boom era, such as Donald and Pluto, while mom and dad can have a romantic ocean-side dinner or a majestic sunrise balloon ride. Surrounded by a plethora of once-in-a-lifetime activities and luxury accommodations, the single worst thing about taking the family down to The City Beautiful, is leaving. Here are a few ideas for getting the most out of your trip.

Day 1: Walt Disney World at Epcot Center

I don't think the kids will give you much of a choice here. They want Mickey, and they want him now. Don't worry though, there is more than enough excitement to go around. Go visit Nemo at The Seas with Nemo & Friends aquarium or check out the futuristic flight simulator Mission: Space. Of course then there is the Imaginations! pavilion at Future World, or go visit the World Showcase for a taste of 11 different cultural experiences.

Day 2: Universal Studios

The other must-see theme park in Orlando, the excitement continues at Universal Studios with the Terminator 2: 3-D Show, Shrek 4-D, Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast, and the kid-friendly Curious George Goes to Town. If you are running short on time, you can pay to cut the lines--and on a short trip, it would be worth your while. Also take a visit to Revenge of the Mummy, followed by Jurassic Park, then close the day out with a big meal at the 1950's drive-in throw-back, Mel's Drive-In.

Day 3: Disney's Magic Kingdom

If Day 3 happens to be your last, there is no better way to enjoy it out than with Disney's Magic Kingdom. If there is one park that can make you feel like a child again, this is it.

If you get a Fastpass, you can zip through the lines at Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain Railroad, or the Magic Carpets of Aladdin...considered the monsters of theme-park world. Speaking of monsters, don't miss out on the Haunted Mansion, and for the older crowd hop on the famous Space Mountain. And when all's said and done, say goodbye the way Walt Disney himself envisioned it, watching the majestic fireworks display bursting over the fairytale Cinderella's Castle.
