Florida, famously known as the sunshine state, certainly earns its capital F for Fun - and Orlando, situated right in its middle, is the great big cherry on the cake, the ultimate thrill-seeker's paradise for the whole family.
Everything about Orlando is big and outlandish. Nowhere on earth caters more to kids than here, and adults too are in no way resistant to its unique magic. The destination has a huge amount on offer right on your doorstep, most famously of course, its home to Mickey Mouse (you cant miss him). Putting Disney aside, however, the area has so many other action-packed attractions that appeal to the whole family - from stomach-churning roller coaster rides, whale and dolphin adventures plus every animal under the sun, to giant discount shopping malls, hundreds of theme hotels, sea, sand and not to mention an amazing array of cuisine at every turn.
With so much to see and do, you couldn't possibly fit everything in one holiday, so we've picked our favourite activities in and around Orlando that tick all the boxes for family fun.
