Must-Know Tips for Traveling with Kids in Orlando
With a little planning and the right itinerary, taking the little ones to vacation in a new destination is a wonderful experience. It can sometimes be stressful for the adults, so use the following tips to help you plan the perfect trip for the entire family.
Be Prepared for the Climate
Children will be happier when they are dressed properly for their surroundings. Check the weather before you leave and be prepared for it. If visiting a warm climate like Orlando, make sure you pack clothes that will be comfortable in the heat along with plenty of sunscreen. Also, be sure to set aside time to cool off in the pool.
Ask ahead of time
When making your hotel or resort reservation, be sure to let them know if you have any specific requests. If needing a refrigerator to keep milk cold for your children, find a resort offering suites that will guarantee this for you. If you will be asking the resort for a crib, let them know ahead of time so it can be put in your room before you arrive.
Bring Comforts of home
Make sure your kids are comfortable in an unfamiliar environment by bringing some items from home. A favorite blanket or toy, or some of their favorite snacks, will help them to relax and enjoy their time experiencing new things while on vacation.
Plan your meals
Research the area ahead of time to find family-friendly dining options close to your accommodations. Save money by not eating all of your meals out, many hotels & resorts offer kitchen facilities. At Floridays Resort Orlando, all of the suites are equipped with a full kitchen including utensils & dishes. When you arrive, head to a local grocery store or the resort marketplace to pick up food basics that will allow you to prepare some meals and snacks without leaving the room.
Don’t skip date night
Add a little romance to your vacation. After the kids have gone to bed, order room service and relax with a bottle of wine while enjoying the view on your balcony. Or, choose a resort with suites so you can enjoy a meal in your private dining area without disturbing the sleeping little ones. At Floridays Resort Orlando, all suites come with a Master Bedroom that offers privacy and a large jetted tub.
