Orlando is a great, kid-friendly destination. However, if you don’t plan in advance,you may find that it can be a bit tricky with kids. If you’re planning to take the kids to LA, here are some top tips to ensure you have a fun, stress-free trip:
Hire a car
There are many great things about Orlando. The public transport system is not one of them. While traffic in Orlando is definitely challenging, you’ll also find that it simply makes sense to hire a car in Orlando. That’s because you’ll then be able to leave at a time that suits you- with the least amount of traffic,and you won’t need to rely on a bus or Uber which can quickly become super expensive.
Make the trip easy
If you’ve ever optimistically booked a cheap flight with multiple connections,only to regret it on the day you have to travel, you’re aware of how much more difficult this can be with kids. Do yourself a favor, and travel the most direct route possible. While it may seem like no big deal to have a stop in another city on the way, this can add hours to your trip, and result in a meltdown if the kids don’t get to nap.
While it may cost more to travel direct, it’s well worth it- even if it means you can’t stay in Orlando for as long. That’s because your kids won’t be as tired,you won’t be as stressed, and you’ll actually enjoy the trip more- and be ready to see the sights as soon as you arrive.
Let the kids choose
It can be easy to assume you know what kinds of activities the kids want to do, but they’ve probably got a few things that they’d like to see and do as well.When you involve them in the decision-making process, they’re more likely to behave since they know they’re getting to choose an activity too. That’s why car hiring in Orlando is also a good idea since you’re not confined to activities that are on the public transport route, or close to your hotel.
If there’s one thing you should do with the kids it’s Disneyland. This is a magical place for kids of all ages (and adults too). Florida is near Orlando so why not go there and enjoy the park with the whole family!
