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
