Getting There

Arrival Airport

Orlando International Airport, Miami International Airport or Fort Lauderdale International Airport


Approximately 25 minutes from Orlando International Airport


Florida is an ideal choice for holidays all year round. With soaring temperatures and blue skies, summer is the most popular time to visit Florida, although the wet season can make it hot and humid. With winter temperatures usually around low-mid 20°C, less rainfall and some fantastic hotel deals, this is still a great time to travel.
