7 ways to enjoy Orlando in the Winter Sun as a Holiday Destination

It’s all about location, location, location!

Your accommodation depends on the number of days you plan to stay in the city. It isn’t possible to get to see every attraction if you’re there for a week or so. I’ll quickly break down options to make it easy.

Maingate East is close to the Disney Theme parks and a free monorail service is available to transport guests to them. Consider staying at Comfort Suites or Comfort Inn.

If you’re a movie buff, stay at Universal Orlando for access to Universal Studios Florida theme park, which is the best way to enjoy movie-based rides and attractions. I recommend Universal’s Loews Sapphire Falls Resort or Westgate Palace Resort both great for a family of four.

World Disney World and Downtown Disney are the perfect stay spots if you plan to spend your entire vacation within Disney land. Pick a hotel near Lake Buena Vista as It’s closest to the Magic Kingdom.

My favorites are Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek or the Staybridge Suites Orlando-Lake Buena Vista. At night, you can witness the beautiful fireworks from Disney Parks. Head to Downtown Disney for fine dining, shopping and Disney themed gifts.

Orlando is full of fun and surprises

There’s so much more you can do with your family in Orlando other than visiting world-renowned theme parks.

  • View the beautiful city from the top by riding the ICONIC Orlando Ferris wheel.
  • Click a pic or more with your favorite celebrities at Madame Tussauds.
  • Learn about chocolate and get to taste some at the World of Chocolate Museum.
  • Boost your science knowledge by visiting the Orlando Science Center.
  • Let the kids run and play free in Grammy?s Indoor Playground.

Getting around

Orlando has numerous transportation options for you to choose from. The best I would recommend is the free shuttle services, which is why is it preferable to choose a specific stay in the area so you can save on the hefty taxi fares which start at USD 2.60. Take the hop on hop off bus service for different tours starting at USD 100 if you feel like it. The tours include visits to top tourist attractions as well as activities. It’s a great way to save some money.

Food and shopping at its best

  • To find a good shopping mall in Orlando is as easy as pie. Apart from shops within every theme park in the city, check out Florida Mall, MacroBaby and The Mall at Millennia.
  • To satisfy those cravings for homelike dine at restaurants such as Mamak Asian Street Food, Hawkers Asian Street Fare, Zeta Asia and Orchid offering a wide variety of delicacies with both veg and non-veg options.

It will be a Winter Sun Holiday Destination to remember!!!

Let loose your inner child in the magical world of Disney or engage in the many activities and enjoy illuminating events, great shopping, and finger-licking food. There?s no reason why Orlando shouldn?t be your go-to destination for this year’s winter holidays.

Here are other winter sun holiday destinations Cuba, The Canary Islands, Egypt, Oman, The Maldives, Australia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Cancun.

P.S. As someone who spent close to 20 years working in insurance, I strongly recommend buying travel insurance if you are going on holiday. It costs a fraction of your holiday but covers the potential risk of the entire holidayYou can read my post on why you need travel insurance.

  1. This is great!

    I would never have thought Orlando for a winter holiday even though it makes perfect sense! Thanks for putting together the price comparisons for hotels too! There looks to be an option for all family budgets and they are quite reasonable indeed!

    I have never been to Orlando but I think this could be a winner now for our next vacation.


  2. Very informative. We will be having no hard time in calling the office and inquire its facilities, hotel rates, entrance fees, bus fares and its best offers. Just keep us update of the fees and rates as it changes anytime.

  3. Hey,

    Great article. I live in the UK and I have always wanted to go to Florida and the USA for that matter.

    I am going to add it to my bucket list now after reading your article. The family will be really excited when I tell them.

    Thanks for sharing and all the best,


  4. Nice post! Thanks for outlining the prices of hotels as well as their locations. I have been to Orlando twice and absolutely loved it! There is a ton of things to do. Winter is an excellent time to visit because of the milder temps (it gets hot and muggy during the summer!).
    Church Street is also an excellent part of time for entertainment, especially if you are looking for some nightlife!

  5. I have just started searching out information on Orlando when I found your post! Thank you for answering several of my questions on holidaying in the southern USA.

    Do any of your recommendations have kitchens in them? Is the food at Disney World expensive? And which times would be the worst to go there…like heavy traffic times or bad weather? Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Irma,

      my recommendations tend to be hotels as I believe when on holiday you be pampered! Cooking is out of the question 🙂 Usually service apts. come with kitchens.

      Is the food expensive at Disney world? that really depends on your definition of expensive as it varies from person to person for whatever reason. As with any theme park, the cost is on the higher side as compared to a food court at a mall.

      I would always recommend going as early as possible as it avoids the majority of incoming visitors and gives you more time to spend at the place.
