More Holidaymakers are Heading to Orlando, Florida

Jul 8, 2008
Florida has always been a popular destination for travelers. Warm weather, a great location and endless attractions make FL a great vacation spot.

Recently there has been a rise in the number of people traveling to Orange County though. The Orlando airport has recently experience a surge in traffic. The number of visitors jumped more than 34% compared to last year this time.

Brits are particularly fond of taking their holidays in Florida. Since they typically take two-week trips, they have the opportunity to fully explore the theme parks and still have time to enjoy shopping, nightlife, dining and beaches. The mild year round temperatures make it a great destination any time of year.

Orlando Attractions

The nice thing about Orlando is there is something for everyone. People of all ages can find something to do in Orlando.

Disney World is a prime example of this. There is so much to do and see for boys and girls, parents and grandparents. Experience thrill rides, meet Disney characters, stay in exclusive resorts, take in theater performances, or visit museums. Choose from a long list of activities that just scratch the surface of things to do in Orlando.

* Disney World

* Seaworld (including Aquatics, the new water park)

* Universal Studios

* MGM Studios (now Disney Hollywood Studios)

* Busch Gardens

* Discovery Cove

* WonderWorks

* Wildlife Safari Tours

* Cirque de Soleil's La Nouba

* Blizzard Beach Water Park

* Ripley's Believe it or Not!

* Sky Venture Orlando

* Universal's Island of Adventure

* Gatorland

* Florida Everglades

* Cypress Gardens

* Orlando Science Center

* Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

* The Holy Land Experience

Mix up your holiday by having some wild adventures and then balance them by taking in some of the calmer attractions, like shows and cultural exhibits. When you've done everything you came to do, take some time to relax on the beach or take a dip in the pool which most Florida hotels have.

Rising Gas Prices Makes Airfare Seem Affordable

Another possible reason for an increase in airport traffic to Orlando may be the rising gas prices in the U.S. It is actually cheaper to fly a family into Orlando than to pay to fill the gas tank multiple times as they make their way toward FL. Gas prices are expected to soar over the summer, making airfare a sensible alternative to driving.

Package Deals Make Orlando Trips More Affordable

You really can't go wrong with a package deal to Disney. Some resorts include hopper passes to all four major theme parks and several water parks. It is also convenient to catch a bus from your hotel to any of these attractions throughout the day.

This means you can easily depart from your resort in the morning and head for the Magic Kingdom, take a bus over to the Animal Kingdom for the evening, return to the Magic Kingdom for the fireworks display, and catch the bus back to your resort at night for no extra fees.

Check for resort and airfare deals to Orlando when you are planning your holiday. Sometimes it pays to book multiple things at one time.
