How to Holiday Like a Celeb

Your regular travel adventure is always a fun episode to enjoy, but if you want to up the glamour stakes and go all VIP for your next break, the good news is that there are many ways you can holiday like a celeb, without the price tag you might think.

Of course, this kind of break is going to cost a little more than a package holiday or a DIY flights, transfer and accommodation deal, but for the added pizzazz it’s certainly worth it!

Schofields have put together a list of accommodation you can rent around the world which is actually owned or frequented by real life celebrities. Check it out here if you fancy sleeping in the same room as Elizabeth Taylor, or you want to dip your toe in the same pool as George Clooney!

If you don’t want to stay somewhere that special, e.g. a celeb-owned home, but you do want upgraded glamour, then a five star hotel is the way forward. You will find these in most large resorts and cities, and if you are willing to pay a little more, you can easily upgrade to a suite, where you will have total and utter comfort, and often with a butler at your service! Think about it, room service with a la carte menus, packed minibars in your room, infinity pools, and perhaps even an in-bathroom Jacuzzi – bliss!

Flying is another way you can up the ante, so look at business class as a starter. You will pay a little more, but if you are flying long haul then the benefits are certainly more than worth it. Extra leg room, refreshments, even champagne, and much better in-flight entertainment await you, whilst being waited on hand and foot. You can certainly imagine a top celeb enjoying this treatment!

Of course, whilst you’re away, you need to think about activities befitting of a celeb break, so how about upgrading your theatre tickets to VIP style, or any experience you are going for, such as the London eye in the capital for example, and going VIP with that too. If you check online you will find most large attractions all have this added extra option to go one better than the regular experience, and if you are keen to go all out and have that celeb experience, then this is something you need to do! On top of this, when you are shopping, make sure you go for the personalised experience, by asking for a personal shopping – make sure you book ahead of time, to avoid disappointment; you never know, a bone fide celeb might be in the store at the same time!

Holidaying like a celeb isn’t necessarily difficult, and it doesn’t have to be that expensive if you shop around for the different facets of your break ahead of time, going for the best deals. Putting together a bespoke celeb holiday like this could be the trip of a lifetime. Of course, you might simply want to go slightly unusual in terms of where you stay, rather than totally glitz and glamour, and in that case, why not look at the different accommodation options available to you – Schofields have put together a list of the most unusual luxury places to stay, so check out the link and see if any take your fancy.

Biodiversity and Beauty – Welcome to Costa Rica

Beaches and cities are fantastic places to visit during a travel excursion, whether it’s a backpacking adventure or a land-based holiday, but occasionally you might start yearning for something a little different. Perhaps lying on a beach gets a little tiresome, or traipsing around markets makes you yawn after a while; if that sounds like your predicament, you need to find a destination which has much more in the way of variety, whilst keeping your attention with jaw-dropping sights and experiences.

The world is packed with such places if you take the time to explore, and one destination which more and more people are enjoying is Costa Rica.

Trips to Costa Rica are much more commonplace these days, with this Central American country much more accessible than it ever used to be. San Jose, the capital, is a bustling and vibrant city to visit, however most travellers to this part of the world tend to head to the more naturally beautiful destinations on offer. Costa Rica is very popular for nature and eco-travel, and that is probably because around 5% of the world’s biodiversity is found here, with almost one quarter of the country’s landmass being either a national park or a protected area. There are many species of endemic flora and fauna to be found in these areas, as well as intriguing and interesting species of wildlife.

It doesn’t hurt that Costa Rica’s beaches are also like something from a castaway picture postcard, rivalling the Caribbean islands for beauty.

The Central Pacific region is where most of the touristic destinations are based, and here you will also find some of those aforementioned national parks to explore. In addition, Guanacaste is another popular spot, with some of the best surfing conditions you will find. Costa Rica’s northern region is quite remote, however Quesada is a city which should certainly be visited, close to the country’s famous active volcano, Arenal, and many hot springs.

Costa Rica’s main tourist resorts are lively but not raucous, which keeps the natural, laid-back vibe in place. If you head to the Caribbean coastal resorts you will find those stunning beaches, with plentiful surfing and diving opportunities, as well as being able to visit Puerto Limon, which is a vibrant and colourful city in this region. If however you want to venture further afield, why not try the remote beaches of the South Pacific region? Here you will find more nature than anywhere else, with some strange and interesting flora and fauna, as well as tropical beaches that are extremely quiet, and blindingly beautiful to the eye.

The major bonus about visiting Costa Rica at this time is that it is still not yet really on the travel map as a hugely popular destination, however that status is surely not going to last for long. Mass tourism is not really in place yet, although along the Caribbean coastline you will see hints of it emerging. If you want to catch Costa Rica before it everyone else does, then now is the time. In terms of eco travel, this is something you must do, as nowhere else on the planet, perhaps with the exception of the Amazon, has wildlife and landscapes which are as diverse and strange as here. The jungles, forests, rivers, and volcanic attractions are startling, especially in the far north and south of the country. Those who are heading to view the imposing Arenal volcano should certainly do a little nature trekking at the same time, and if you are heading to the far south, make sure you take a little time away from those amazing beaches to check out the wildlife and flora and fauna which is practically everywhere you look.

Catch it before everyone else does, this is one country which will blow your mind!

Sporting Fun in Melbourne

Anyone who knows anything about Melbourne will know that this is a city which is crazy about sports, and you only have to look at the number of sporting venues which make up the city itself to see just how many major events are hosted here. Locals are generally crazy about their sport of choice, and there is a fun and vibrant atmosphere whenever a large-scaled sporting day is on the cards – put simply, this is THE place to go for sporting fun!

Of course, Melbourne is not only about sport, as this beautiful city has enough other sights and experiences to be had aside from football, tennis, or horse racing, for example, but you can’t ignore the call of the many arenas dotted around.

When visiting Melbourne for whatever reason, be sure to check out your accommodation options well ahead of time, to avoid disappointment, especially if you are visiting around the time of a major sporting event. You may find large hotels are booked up, and in that case it’s worthwhile checking out the other options available to you, such as serviced apartments Melbourne for example. These give you a more home away from home feel, which is the ideal place to put your feet up after a long day of sightseeing or sporting high jinks!

Many people choose Melbourne as a base when heading outside the city itself, such as taking a trip along the epic Great Ocean Road, or exploring the nearby countryside. You can of course enjoy the many wineries around this region, such as a Yarra Valley wine tour, or simply base yourself in the city for some shopping, gastronomy, vibrant night life, and of course, those sporting events.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is iconic and here you can catch a high profile match, or perhaps head to the famous Rod Laver Arena during the Australian Open Grand Slam tennis tournament and watch your favourite star in action. Take a flutter on a race at the Flemington Racecourse, with the hopes to win big, or catch an event at Docklands Stadium – these are all famous venues in the city itself, amongst many others.

If you are travelling with children, you also have lots of activities on offer, but one of the best is certainly the Puffing Billy Railway. This open air train ride will take you across huge bridges and over the rainforest around the city, and kids will love spotting wildlife and the fact they are on an old-fashioned steam train – of course, adults will love it too! You could also venture to the Melbourne Star, a huge Ferris wheel which gives you panoramic views across the city, or the Sea Life Aquarium. Keeping the kids occupied will certainly mean a more laid-back city break for you!

Melbourne might be a sporting city of the highest order, but that’s certainly not all its famous for. Check it out for yourself and enjoy a city of many different sides.

A Two-Wheeled Adventure in India

India is a mysterious and spiritual place, with centuries of history forming its very heart and core. Those who visit this beautiful and cultural land tend to focus their attention on Delhi, the Taj Mahal, or perhaps the beach resorts in the south, such as Goa, but that means that so much of this huge and diverse land is missed out. Travelling around on public transport is possible, and certainly and experience, but it isn’t the easiest process in the world. To give you a truly breath-taking journey, whilst being able to immerse yourself in the culture of the different regions entirely, why not take a tour by motorcycle?

Yes, you heard right!

Motorcycle tours are becoming more and more popular, and when you think about the benefits, i.e. the wind in your hair, the freedom of the open road, and the ability to be at one with everything you are passing by, it’s no surprise.

Vintage Rides have been offering various tours for years, and are highly experienced in terms of putting together bespoke itineraries, which show you the highlights of different regions, whilst also allowing you to experience the culture and authenticity at the same time. Motorbike tours in India in India are a great way to experience the country first hand, and of course, you can choose which region you really want to specialise in. Travelling the entirety of India in this way is basically too much; it would take too long, use too much fuel, and you would be exhausted by the end of it, so be sure to find a region, or a couple of regions, which all out to your interests, and base yourself there.

The Himalayas are obviously world famous, and this mythical region of India, heading towards spiritual Tibet, is somewhere to be hold. The strange, almost moon-like appearance of the landscapes becomes more intriguing as you get closer to the mountains themselves, with a route taking you over the highest roads, and into a land that is as serene and cultural as you will find anywhere else in the world.

Of course, if altitude isn’t your thing, why not head south and explore the region around Kerala and Goa? The beaches here are considered to be the best in the country, with a vibrant and upbeat feel the region. Winding across the Western Ghats you will head into Tamil Nadu, with its stunning Tamil temples, as well has having time to kick back and relax on those paradise beaches.

Alternatively, Rajasthan in the north of the country is a truly colourful and diverse region, packed with history, tradition, and friendly locals who will go out of their way to help you learn about their customs and way of life. The landscapes are diverse and quite demanding, with mountains, plains and deserts to cross, however it is certainly a journey that will leave you with many amazing memories to take home.

Wherever catches your imagination, there will be a tour for you, so check out what is available and start planning your two-wheeled adventure!

Cruisin’ Australia

A road trip is one of the most iconic journeys you can ever take – think about it, the wind in your hair, the freedom of the open road, nothing but amazing sights in front of you; it’s no wonder that more and more of us are choosing to follow prescribed routes and visit several different places during one holiday, rather than head to one place and explore it completely.

Of course, how you get around is important, and renting a motor home is a good way to do that. This way, you get the comfort of home, almost like the comfort of a hotel, but you’re on the go, giving you that freedom we were just talking about. Simply shop around for your requirements and dates, but remember to cover yourself in terms of insurance too.

Technicalities out of the way, the fun part begins when you plan your trip and then head off onto the open road. Australia is one of the world’s best places for road tripping, and when you think about the sheer number of routes you can take, such as the Pacific Coast Touring Route, the Great Ocean Road, the Great Southern Touring Route, or the Gibb River Road, to name just a few. I personally took the epic Red Centre Way, and believe me, this was an adventure of a true lifetime!

Shunning beach life for the Red Centre was a decision we made because we simply wanted to see something truly different and iconic, something we wouldn’t see anywhere else. The route took us from Alice Springs, a wonderful city in its own right, through the huge West MacDonnell Range National Park, where we swam in the wonderfully warm waters of Glen Helen Gorge, amazed at the soaring mountain scenery around us, before heading to King’s Canyon, and testing out our fitness as we climbed to the top; this isn’t a particularly heavy going route, but in the heat it felt like it!

Of course, this part of the country is steeped in Aboriginal culture, and learning more about Dreamtime and the legends around it really are a must do – this is what gives this particular road trip an edge like no other; you’re not going to get this anywhere else! On top of this, you have the legendary and world famous Ayres Rock to visit, better known as Uluru in this part of the world. The sunrise is like nothing you have ever seen before, as various hues of red take over your vision, and if you want to take it a step further, how about a camel ride around it? Again, an experience you’re not going to find anywhere else!

This road trip is packed with sights to see, and it’s hard to really describe them all. The idyllic pools at the Garden of Eden were a true highlight, swimming to take away the strains of driving, and again, Uluru was the real highlight of the adventure we had, which took about six days to complete, having stopped off a few times on the way.

Put simply, if you want an adventure of a lifetime, a break which will give you one of the best overviews of the country, or at least a small part of it, then a road trip is the only way to go.

All The Fun of The City in Sydney

City breaks in whatever guise are exciting events, and when you choose to head to a busy metropolis, you’re certainly going to get a frenetic atmosphere, vibrant nightlife, excellent shopping opportunities, and a range of top class restaurants to choose from. Of course, you’re also likely to find sightseeing attractions too, so doing some research into your destination ahead of time is a must, to stop you missing out on something interesting.

Sydney is Australia’s largest city, and whilst some mistakenly class it as the capital (which is actually isn’t), there is certainly enough to keep any visitor occupied for a good few days, if not longer. You’re probably never going to be able to experience everything Sydney has on offer, such is its sprawling size, but you can certainly plan your highlights list ahead of time, and head to your points of interest.

Sydney accommodation is also very accessible to all budgets, so whether you’re looking for a five star hotel, a hostel, or something in-between, you’re certainly catered for. Sticking to a central location is always best, and that way you can use the many public transport links to get around the various sights and districts.

Of course, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House are two of the most iconic sights of the city, and these are known all over the world, with the image transmitted at New Year, thanks to the huge firework display. It doesn’t have to be New Year to visit this wonderful sight either, as you can even climb the Harbour Bridge if the mood takes you, and enjoy the amazing view from the top. Perhaps you could even catch a show at the Opera House, and then head somewhere delicious for dinner afterwards – a truly luxurious Sydney experience.

You don’t have to splash the cash to enjoy your time here however, as there are plenty of budget options available. Head to Bondi Beach for a chilled out day, watch the surfers, and basically top up your tan, or perhaps peruse some souvenirs at one of the many markets around the city, such as The Rocks Market, or Paddington Markets. The vibrant atmosphere is certainly fun on its own, and even if you don’t buy anything, you will have enjoyed the day.

If you’re travelling with kids, you still have plenty of activity options, such as Taronga Zoo, which is huge and separated into different regions, so it will certainly fill a whole day, or perhaps the Sea Life Aquarium, where you can check out huge marine-life mammals seriously up close and personal. Sydney overall is a very family friendly place, and even the beaches which are surrounding the city centre are perfect for a day splashing and building sandcastles.

A city break in Sydney is certainly going to be a tiring experience, but it is one which you certainly can’t miss.






Are Disney Cruises Worth the Extra Money?

If you’re a fan of anything Disney-related, then I’m sure you’ve considered the idea of heading off on a Disney-focused holiday; that could be going to Disney World, perhaps saying in one of the on-site hotels, or it could be that you’ve considered heading off on a Disney cruise.

Now, there are many perks to a Disney cruise, not least the fact you can be guaranteed serious fun whilst you’re floating around some of the world’s most beautiful destinations, especially those around the Caribbean, however you also need to take into account that Disney cruises are a little, shall we say, expensive.

There is the saying that you get what you pay for, but it is worth shelling out the extra to head off on a Disney cruise when you could go on a regular cruise around the same areas?

Well, it totally depends on what you want from your vacation, basically.

If you want a totally child-focused break, where the kids come first in everything, including entertainment, shore excursions, activities, food, and everything in-between, then perhaps a Disney cruise is for you. What you have to weigh up however is whether you could get the same level of family-friendliness from another cruise company with a lower price tag. The answer to that is probably no, but that’s not to say that other cruise companies don’t give a totally family-friendly answer, because many do, just not to the same degree as Disney.

There is nothing on a Disney cruise ship that isn’t focused on children, and by the end of your cruise you will have been Disney-fied to within an inch of your life. This is pure escapism from reality, heading off to your happily ever after, at least for the duration of your cruise. Can you handle this for days on end? Again, totally personal, but many can’t, and there is no break from the fairy-dust on this kind of cruise.

A Disney cruise is ideal for small kids who love the films, because you won’t have any moments where they’re crying because they’re bored, and perhaps that’s the key to it all, because you can relax as a result. You will also easily meet other families on a Disney cruise, because you won’t find groups and singles as a general rule, although obviously there may be a few Disney fans who simply want to experience a cruise of this kind – basically, there will be no raucous parties.

So, is a Disney cruise worth the extra cash?

Personally, I would say no, because you can find family-friendly cruises very easily these days, with more than enough facilities and entertainment options to keep your little ones occupied, for much less of a price tag, and a vacation is really what you make it yourself. Having said that however, if this is a once in a lifetime kind of vacation you’re heading off on, and your family are Disney mad, then I can understand why you may think about paying the extra cost.

Personal opinion on this one, but the extra cost involved in a Disney cruise means complete and utter escapism, and it’s up to you whether you consider that worthy, or whether it’s a state of mind.

Ten Things You Must Have in Your Carry-on Bag

Your carry-on bag is basically your survival pack for your flight, regardless of how long you are in the air for. It should contain everything to make your flight more comfortable, entertain you throughout, and also have a few ‘just in case’ items in there too.

If you’re always forgetting something important when it comes to packing your carry-on bag, instead being too distracted with the task of packing your actual suitcase, here are ten items you should absolutely have in that bag.

Passport – Goes without saying really! Check, double check, and triple check you have your passport, and make sure it is in a safe part of your bag, preferably another compartment, so you’re not pulling everything out of your bag when you’re trying to find it at that specific moment.

Chargers – Now, this could simply be for your phone, or it could be for all your technical gadgets, but whatever it is, make sure you pack it! It’s always a good idea to purchase a universal charger if at all possible, or one with several different attachments on one, to save space. Of course, you may also need to pack a travel adapter too.

Cash – This is a no brainer, but it’s one of the most important items! Remember your currency, in whatever domination you’re taking it with you, but do remember not to travel with large amounts of cash. Instead, look at ways you can carry it safely in a different way, such as by using your debit card overseas, or using a pre-paid travel card.

Tablet/Kindle – Hours of entertainment at your fingertips! Load it up with games, apps, books, and movies, and charge it right up. You could consider buying a back-up battery charger too, just in case it runs out halfway through a long-haul flight.

Lip balm – This is one for the guys out there too! Air conditioning on a plane can seriously dehydrate not only your skin, but also your lips. How many times have you got off the plane thinking your lips feel like sandpaper? Take a lip balm for those dry lip moments.

Thick socks – Seriously, how cold can it get on a plane? Having cold feet is the worst feeling for me, so I always take a pair of thick socks with me for comfort. You need to be comfortable when you’re traveling, it simply makes time pass much quicker!

Paracetamol – There is always the mid-flight headache to deal with, so take some painkillers to counteract it and you should have a much more comfortable flight as a result.

Sweets for take-off and landing – Popping ears are not pleasant, but sucking a boiled sweet is a good way to help avoid it as much as possible. Of course, you can always munch on them through the flight too!

Neck pillow – If you want to sleep during your flight, there is no more annoying feeling than not being able to get your head comfortable, and then you get the resultant neck pain. You can cheaply buy a neck pillow for your flight, which rolls up small enough for your carry-on bag.

Earphones – Finally, for music, films, or for the annoying sounds on your game apps, remember to take your earphones; not everyone wants to hear what you’re listening to!

Now, of course there are countless other bits and bobs you could take in your carry-on bag, to make your flight more comfortable, but as a general rule, these are ten of the most important.

Retiring Abroad: Five Interesting Places to Spend your Later Years

If you’re lucky enough to be considering where to spend your retirement years, then you have endless choices. The decision will be a difficult one to make, there’s no doubt about that, and there are many considerations which have to go into it, such as healthcare proximity and cost, property prices, communication issues, as well as social considerations, including how many other expats there are currently residing in the place you’re looking at. On top of that however, it’s always good to have something a little interesting nearby, such as a certain vibe in the air, a tourist attraction perhaps, or simply just a quirk about a place which makes it stand out.

If you’re looking for inspiration, consider these five destinations, and see if any jump out at you.


A huge amount of expats have relocated to Portugal, so that has to speak volumes. Basically, Portugal has a chilled-out atmosphere about it, as well as having wonderful weather regardless of the month. You can choose to be city-based, or head to the Algarve and enjoy the scenic views as you open your curtains every single day. On top of this, it’s easy to get around, and you can get out to other neighbouring European countries very easily indeed. Healthcare is good quality in Portugal, and it’s very cheap in terms of cost of living too.


Come on, who doesn’t dream of relocating to the paradise of Barbados? We don’t need to talk about interesting facts to make this dream island appealing, and the fact that the sun shines pretty much all the time, with an average yearly temperature of 26°C, doesn’t hurt at all! Barbados is a Commonwealth island, so it is English speaking, you’ll find countless friendly locals, as well as a huge expat community to mingle with. With low cost healthcare too – this is basically a slice of retirement heaven.


Thailand isn’t all about backpacking and full moon parties, and the large amount of expats who have relocated there stand to prove that fact. You can choose bustling cities or you can choose peace and serenity, it’s all about personal choice. The soaring mountains, lush, green landscapes, and blinding beaches really speak for themselves, with a totally different way of life making it certainly very interesting indeed. If you want to live your retirement years surrounded by culture then this is for you.


You might not have considered Morocco, but interestingly (there’s that word again), it is becoming increasingly popular as a retirement destination. This is another which is cultural, and Marrakesh and Casablanca are two of the most popular cities to base yourself in your retirement years. You can expect a wonderful climate all year around, a world away from the grey skies and rain you might be used to back home, as well as a host of natural wonders all around you.


Waking up to the Caribbean sunshine every morning is many people’s dream, and this laid-back, welcoming island will certainly do that for you. Jamaica is about more than just beaches and reggae, although surrounding yourself with that every day will certainly do wonders for your mood. The natural beauty around the island is stunning, and with a yearly average of 27°C, and low property prices, Jamaica is definitely a top choice.

How’s that for a little inspiration?

A Florida Theme Park Guide

Scream if you want to go faster!

There’s no denying that if you’re looking for the ultimate theme park thrill, then Florida is the place to go. Orlando is packed with more theme parks per square mile than seemingly anywhere else in the world, all full of rollercoaster fun, ride heaven, and parades to make you smile. It’s borderline impossible to visit Florida, specifically Orlando, and not have a smile on your face.

The downside of this is that there are so many parks, you might not know where to spend your time. The thing with holidays in this sunny part of the world is that unless you target your time, and give it a little pre-thought, you’re going to spend your hours wandering around aimlessly, wasting precious hours.

To help make your time easier, here’s a guide to the theme parks you can scream at your top of the lungs in when you visit Florida.

Busch Gardens, Tampa

For anyone who loves wildlife and nature, this is a great choice. Now, it’s not a serene kind of place despite the setting, it’s actually scream central, packed with huge rides, such as SheiKra, as well as more nature-based rides, such as Serengeti Safari. Animal encounters are the norm here too. You can buy passes in conjunction with Orlando parks too, such as SeaWorld, to give you more value for money.

Discovery Cove, Orlando

This is one for those seeking serenity! Almost like a castaway island, Discovery Cove limits the number of guests per day, so it’s never packed, and you have to pre-book in order to get in. Swimming with dolphins, feeding rays, interacting with tropical birds, sunbathing, eating until you can’t eat no more (this is an all-inclusive deal), and snorkelling, are all activities to pack into your day.

SeaWorld, Orlando

Whether you’ve been or not, everyone knows SeaWorld for the famous whale Shamu. Whilst Shamu isn’t there anymore, there are still killer whales, dolphins, rays, colourful fish, and all manner of other marine-life to enjoy, as well as rides, such as the fantastic Manta, where you swoop through the air on your front, before flipping onto your back. This park is also bigger than you think, so you will need your walking shoes. Don’t miss the dolphin show, Blue Horizons, it’s totally breath-taking.

Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure, Orlando

We’ll lump these two together because they are actually co-joined and sit next to each other. Decide whether you want to visit both, or just one, and buy your ticket accordingly, in order to save money. Universal Studios is one for the film buffs out there, where you can learn how films are made, as well as scream your lungs out on one of the massive rides, such as The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman.

Alternatively, Islands of Adventure has many rides to grab your attention too, such as the huge Incredible Hulk Coaster. Remember that this particular park also includes the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is a must visit for fans of the film. Walk through Hogwarts and you won’t fail to be amazed, try butterbeer, choose a wand, and ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, for a true interactive thrill.

Aquatica, Orlando

This is a water park specifically, but there are many differences to it which make it worth a visit for the day. Again, you can lump together SeaWorld tickets with Aquatica, as well as Busch Gardens, so decide where you want to go and order packages to cut costs.

The main attraction here is the massive water slide, where you ride through a tube surrounded by dolphins, colourful fish, and swooping rays, before chilling out in the sun along the lazy river perhaps.

Disney World, Orlando

The ultimate theme park and entertainment district in the world! Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot make up the main parks, as well as two water parks – Typhoon Lagoon, and Blizzard Beach.

The best advice for visiting Disney World is to work out how many days you want to spend in each park, and to buy your ticket bundle. You will find unlimited bundles for 14 or 7 days, but if you’re wanting to visit other parks in Florida, then it’s no good buying a 14 day pass, as you’re going to be wasting money. Work it out and buy accordingly.

Each park is certainly worth a day or two’s visit for each, and Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, certainly deserve two days each. The parades are amazing, and a good way to cut the time you’re waiting for big rides is to head there during a parade time; so catch the morning parade, and head to big rides during the afternoon one, to see if the queue time is less. You can also take advantage of the Fast Pass service.

There is far too much to mention where Disney World is concerned, but the best advice is to sort out your ticket needs, wear very comfortable shoes, remember sunscreen, and to try and fuel up on breakfast to get you through the day. There’s simply far too much to see!

As you can tell, Florida is a theme park lover’s dream!
