Book an October 2014 Florida Holiday for a spooky time at Halloween

When it comes to making a trip to Florida, it is easy to see why the big holiday occasions are such a popular time to visit. So many of the theme parks and tourist attractions go all out to make sure that everyone has a brilliant time during these major events. While Christmas, New Year and Easter are the headline grabbing holiday seasons, it has to be said that Halloween lends itself perfectly to having fun. The dressing up nature of this season encourages everyone to get involved with the party spirit, and this is definitely the time of year when things get a little bit spooky!

The Halloween festivities for 2013 may be over, but now is the time when the plans and preparations for October 2014 and even October 2015 are being put in place. So much work goes into planning these special holiday occasions; there is a need to plan well in advance. After all, countless holidaymakers are booking their holiday’s months and maybe even a year in advance so it makes sense for the theme parks and hosts to be doing the same.

Halloween offers fun for all of the family

One of the big reasons why Halloween is so popular is the fact that there is something for everyone. For younger children, Halloween can be a really fun time but for older kids and adults, it is possible to introduce a scarier element to the season. In Orlando, Florida, you can get the best of both worlds. It doesn’t matter how old the travelling party is, there will be a Florida theme park event that is perfectly suited for them.

The Universal Halloween Horror Nights are widely regarded as being amongst the best nights you can find at this time of the year. The positive reviews for these events get bigger every single year. In October 2013, the reviews for the ‘American Werewolf In London’ and the ‘Cabin In The Woods’ events were hugely positive. These events have really raised the bar for the year ahead and many people are already wondering what next year will have in store for their October 2014 Florida holidays.

Find the Halloween event that is right for you

This style of Halloween event is perfect for adults and young adults but it is clearly not something that is suitable for children. Not to worry though because Orlando, Florida is a destination that is all about pleasing children. The Walt Disney World Resort puts on its own very special Halloween event, which is not so scary but is a great deal of fun. The Not So Scary Mickey party is the perfect way to indulge in some trick or treat fun and parents can get involved too. This helps the kids to relax and enjoy themselves. Halloween provides the perfect opportunity to dress up as your favourite character, but really, it provides the perfect opportunity to spend quality time together as a family. Family time is the true meaning of the holiday seasons and when it comes to bringing families closer together; there is no doubt that Florida does it very well.

If you are looking for the perfect accommodation in October, Florida won’t let you down. Many people find that combining a few days at a villa with a short stay at one of the Universal Hotels is the perfect combination. The villa stay provides the freedom to come and go as you please but booking one of the Universal Orlando Hotel Holidays for a few nights offers great benefits. You get the chance to enjoy the early opening privileges that Universal hotel residents benefit from. This means that you can skip the queue and make the most of the time that you have in the theme parks.

October and Halloween may be a scary time of year, but Florida can also help to make it the most exciting and family-fun filled time of the year

Enjoy Florida In 2014 with an Orlando Villa

While most people know exactly what they are going to do when they come to Florida, knowing what accommodation is right for you and your family can be a bit more problematic. There are plenty of accommodation options, that is not the issue, in fact, some people may find that they have too many options to evaluate. There is something for everyone in Florida and if you are booking a 2014 Florida trip for your family, it may be that a villa provides the perfect setting.

When it comes to renting a villa, you get freedom and flexibility. Many holiday makers consider the additional benefits of the hotels such as resort facilities the swimming pools for the children to mix with other children a bonus over a villa so it really does depend upon what your individual requirements as a family are. We find many families have a need to spend quality time together in a relaxed environment doing their own cooking and with the freedom of their own space, when staying in a hotel the room tends to be classed as a base for the other activities they are engaging in on their annual holiday.

You have plenty of options for a Florida villa

Another fantastic aspect about the range of villas in Florida is that there are so many options. The range of high class Florida villas includes Emerald Island, Windsor Hills, Highlands Reserve, Mission, Park, Glenbrook, Highgrove and Westhaven. There are plenty more villas to choose from, but these are the names that people mention time and time again with respect to high quality Florida villas. When you have as much choice as this, you are guaranteed to find something that meets your needs and requirements.

Some holiday makers will decide that having a swimming pool at their villa is essential, and there are plenty of options that meet this need. There will be other holiday makers who will benefit from having access to Wi-Fi at their villa. It can be good to get away from home but being able to stay in touch is a big part of a holiday for many people. Whether you have relatives you want to stay in touch with or you want to make people jealous by uploading your holiday snaps to Facebook, Wi-Fi can make a good holiday feel like a great one. There are so many different aspects and elements that can help people to get more from their Florida villa holidays.

With a Florida villa, you are close to the holiday action

Another hugely important aspect about the range of villas in Florida is that you can find one close to where the attractions are. Whether you are focused on the theme parks, the golf courses or you want a solid base to explore what Florida has to offer, these villas provide the perfect setting. Golfing holidays in Florida with world renowned courses are less than a 30 minute drive from the main villas and it is possible to hire golf clubs when you are on holiday. With tickets available for all of the major theme parks, including Disney, universal, Busch Gardens, Sea World and a whole lot more, you will find that your holiday villa services will help to ensure that your 2014 holiday is the best one yet.

It can be easy to think that a Florida holiday only caters to families. The importance and brilliance of the major theme parks in Orlando ensures that this is the biggest tourist attraction in the area. To believe that this is the only thing that Florida has to offer would be very wrong though, as there is something for everyone. The fact that a Florida holiday appeals to all ages can be seen in the diversity of villas and accommodation options available for holidays in 2014.

Christmas In Florida and New York

Florida and New York is a fantastic combination of holiday destinations and Christmas is a perfect time of year to spend with family and loved ones. Combining New York and Florida gives an opportunity to experience the magic of Christmas coupled with the magic of two iconic cities and bright lights.

This is part of the reason why so many people are opting to get away for Christmas. If you are looking to book a holiday that will help you capture the spirit of Christmas while enjoying quality time, a Florida break is likely to be the perfect trip. It is still possible to book for December and Christmas in Florida for 2013 but many families are booking up early for Christmas Florida Holidays in 2014. Planning ahead gives you something to look forward to, which is part of the magic of Christmas.

Theme parks put on a big show at Christmas

You can rest assured that the hotels and theme parks will be pulling out all of the stops to make sure that you and your family have a wonderful time over the festive period. No matter what time of year you visit Florida, you are assured of a warm welcome and a magical trip but Christmas time adds a little more magic and excitement to proceedings. When you combine the magic of Christmas and the magic of Florida, you create a festive season that you and your family will remember for the rest of your lives.

There are many reasons why people decide to head abroad for their holiday to Florida in December. A lot of people believe that the cost of Christmas at home is no more expensive than coming abroad to Florida and enjoying a special Christmas. When you add in the hassle and hard work of ensuring that Christmas is magic back home, booking a family festive holiday to Florida can be money well spent. Even at Christmas, value for money should be one of the most important aspects that people look for, and a Florida Christmas trip is ideal for many families.

Holidays in New York

Make the most of this once in a lifetime trip

Given that this style of holiday can be a once in a lifetime trip, it makes sense to make the most of it. This is why many families decide to book a twin centre holiday. Combining a family trip to Florida with a festive stopover in New York can really create the most magical Christmas of all time for your family. Whether it is thanks to films, books or TV shows, New York is the pinnacle of Christmas for many people. Having the chance to skate at the Rockefeller Plaza or to experience the magical New York Christmas tree will help to create one of the most magical experiences for all of the family. New York is an amazing city at the best of times but it is a city that loves Christmas in a big way. If you are looking to create a very special family Christmas, booking a twin centre holiday encompassing Florida and New York is hard to beat.

And finally there is christmas on the beach! why not book up early for a Christmas Orlando and Gulf Coast holiday in 2014 - fly with Virgin Atlantic on our pre advance basis and stay at Vista Cay in Orlando for 7 nights then drive to Fort Myers and stay at sail harbour for a further 7. While both 2 centre holidays can still provide the wintry conditions that people associate with Christmas, there is not so much of the rain, gloom and drizzle that is associated with a UK Christmas. We all dream of a White Christmas but in Britain, it is more a case of a Wet Christmas. Heading to Florida and New York is likely to result in slightly better weather conditions but it definitely offers more fun for all of the family.

Florida And The Keys Go Hand In Hand

When it comes to taking a holiday that is a little bit different from the norm, you may think that Florida is unable to fit the bill. However, if you can look beyond the main theme parks in Florida, you will find that there is a great deal to see and do in the area. If you are looking for a different type of Florida holiday, the Florida Keys can provide you with a trip that will live with you for ever.

The Florida Keys have sometimes been referred to as the Caribbean of America and there is a whole host of worthwhile activities and recreational pursuits available on the islands. While The Florida Keys has a collective charm about it, every individual island has something of merit, allowing people to find the island that meets their needs perfectly. With a span of more than 110 miles, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy what the Florida Keys has to offer, all year round.

If you are travelling from Miami, Key Largo will be the first island that you come across. The John Pennekamp State Park is one of the most popular attractions in Key Largo and there are a number of guided tours in this part of the country. If you want to dive and see sunken wrecks, this is the place for you. In fact, Key Largo is renowned for offering a wide range of snorkelling and diving opportunities, making it a perfect destination for people who like excitement and adventure on their holiday.

The Florida Keys provides year round fun

There is no bad time to visit the Florida Keys but if you don’t have children, it makes sense to travel out with the school holiday seasons. September and October breaks can provide the perfect climate and setting at a very affordable price. Similarly, March and May, omitting April to avoid the Easter breaks, can provide people with the ideal climate and setting to really enjoy their break to the Florida Keys.

If you would prefer to take a fishing trip, heading beyond Key Largo to Islamorada, an island with a strong reputation for sport fishing. There are plenty of fishing tournaments and angling competitions taking place every season. There is even a range of offshore fishing events lined up for the winter months if that is when you are heading to Florida.

If that all sounds like too much action and adventure, heading further south will provide you with the chance to relax and take it easy. The Lower Florida Keys and Big Pine Key provide as comfortable and as laid back a life as you can hope to find. The Florida climate is made to be enjoyed and in this part of the Florida Keys, you can enjoy the beach, laze around on boats and dance into the small hours of the night. No matter what sort of break you are hoping for, the Florida Keys has so much to offer. Then again, an increasing number of people are organising twin centre holidays between the Florida Keys and Orlando. This means that the trip can take in the theme parks and major tourist destinations of Orlando while providing something a little bit different. For many people, a trip to Florida represents a once in a lifetime opportunity, so it makes sense to cram in as much as possible.

With careful planning and a high intensity, it is possible to cram in a lot of fun and excitement into one week in Orlando. Rather than spreading the theme park fun out over two weeks, it can be of benefit to spend the other week in the Florida Keys. If you are trying to plan a holiday to suit everyone in your family and you are struggling to please everyone, a twin centre break could be the perfect solution. Florida has a lot more to offer than many people think and it may be that a Florida Keys Holiday is the perfect solution.
