If you’re planning on visiting Orlando with kids, there’s a few things you should know before you come. Check out these must know tips to help you and your little ones get the most your of trip to Orlando!
Be ready for the heat.
When kids are uncomfortable, they make their parents uncomfortable. One of the main reasons Orlando is the number one family vacation destination in the world is its beautiful, year-round sunny climate, but that means it can be pretty hot sometimes too. When visiting Orlando with kids, pack appropriately, bring sunscreen, make sure the kids are dressed for a day in the sun and set aside time to cool off in the pool.
Ask for special accommodations ahead of time.
Each family with children has specific needs. Maybe it’s a crib, stroller or high chair. Maybe it’s a few floaties for the pool, or an outdoor grill for family barbecue day. Contact your vacation rental company ahead of time, so that everything you need can be ready and waiting when your family arrives.
Bring some comforts of home.
If this is your first vacation with young children, it could be a bit daunting for your little ones to be in an unfamiliar environment. Remember to bring a favorite blanket, toy or teddy bear when visiting Orlando with kids, as it will help them relax. Their preferred snacks also help when the kids are picky eaters!
Plan your meals.
Do plenty of research to find family friendly dining options close to where you are staying. If you’re staying in a vacation rental, make use of the full-size kitchen by purchasing groceries when you arrive. This allows you to prepare meals your family is accustomed to, and it will keep your children happy and healthy.
Remember date night.
Just because you’re on vacation with the kids, doesn’t mean you can’t add a little romance. This is one of the benefits to staying in a vacation rental. Once you put the kids to bed, you can relax with a bottle of wine, some chocolate and grapes in your private pool or spa, in complete privacy. Many vacation rentals also feature en-suite bathrooms with large, jetted tubs
