New York Highlights
New York is a must-visit destination on everyone’s list. A towering cityscape full of iconic buildings that is infused with beautiful green spaces and awash with people, history, colour and some of the best food you’ll ever eat. It’s difficult to overstate how magical ‘The City that Never Sleeps’ really is, but once you’re here, she’s yours to discover.
The City of Landmarks
New York City is home to striking and often revolutionary architecture in the form of glossy skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, the Art Deco style of the Chrysler Building and the quirkiness of the Flatiron Building. Its famous landmarks also include contemporary museums, expansive parks and historic monuments, all waiting to be explored.
New York City is renowned worldwide for its iconic shopping opportunities, from the legendary elegance of Fifth Avenue and Macy’s - an 11-story department store in Herald Square - to the scores of retro clothing shops and bustling neighbourhood flea markets. So, in our opinion, you may need another suitcase!
There is a melting pot of different cultures, flavours and styles in New York, which is reflected in its ever-revolving cornucopia of restaurants, bars and cafés in all corners of the city. There are long-standing establishments serving up classic dishes within a familial, community atmosphere, as well as Michelin-starred fine dining spots and pop-up food stands - both packing a punch with equally delicious fare.
New York is abundant with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, whether it’s catching a Broadway show, taking flight in a helicopter ride over the Statue of Liberty or riding a horse and carriage through Central Park. Yet, excitement can be found even in the seemingly routine; hail down a famous yellow taxi, navigate the frenetic subway system or gaze through the shop window at Tiffany & Co. for a truly unforgettable experience.
Orlando is world-famous for its family-friendly attractions, not to mention a certain big-eared mouse! From lively theme parks to glorious natural environments and fantastic dining and shopping experiences to out-of-this world entertainment, Orlando delivers an unforgettable holiday for every member of the family.
Orlando is the proud home of two of the world’s biggest theme park resorts: Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort, as well as many thrilling entertainment attractions and water parks. Charming millions of visitors each year to Florida, the parks are constantly evolving with new, state-of-the-art rides and experiences to wow and delight visitors young and old.
For many, boutique and outlet shopping trips make up a huge portion of Orlando holidays, and whether you’re planning on taking advantage of incredible discounts like in the infamous Black Friday Sales, or you’re simply looking to add to your Disney souvenir collection, your retail needs will be satisfied beyond measure!
There are thousands of places to eat and drink in Orlando, so you can dine somewhere different every time you get hungry. The parks and resorts are filled with marvellous themed eateries to try from cool and casual to Michelin-starred fine dining, while the range of restaurants on offer in the popular tourist areas and shopping malls is second to none.
The Great Outdoors
Despite the chaos of the city, there are many opportunities to get back to nature and escape the throngs of tourists. Head outwards from Downtown Orlando and admire crystalline spring waters, miles and miles of nature trails, an abundance of native wildlife and discover the Floridians’ deep commitment to the protection of the natural world.

NEW YORK & ORLANDO HOLIDAY FAQS
NEW YORK & ORLANDO HOLIDAY FAQS
NEW YORK & ORLANDO HOLIDAY FAQS
When you’re planning New York and Orlando multi-centre holidays, a great time to travel can be in late September or early October. New York has a delightful autumn breeze, as well as fewer tourists, while Orlando starts to ease out of its scorching heat of the summer, creating a comfortable environment for theme park enthusiasts.
If the milder temperatures of New York don't put you off, spring (from April to June) can also be a good bet. Watch as the city awakens with colourful blooms, while in Orlando the weather remains nice, although there might be a slightly higher chance of rainfall compared to other times in the year. If you’re seeking something magical, the winter months (December to March) have a unique charm. New York is draped in a snowy blanket, radiating a festive atmosphere with its holiday decorations, while Orlando remains relatively warm - plus it’s an ideal time to visit Disney. The theme parks come alive with dazzling holiday lights and special events at this time of year.
New York and Orlando are in the same time zone and are 5 hours behind the UK for most of the year. If you’re travelling around Daylight Saving Time (usually in March and October), bear in mind that the time difference decreases by an hour.
For New York and Orlando twin-centre holidays, starting your journey from the UK will usually involve departing from major airports like London Heathrow Airport (LHR) or London Gatwick Airport (LGW). Once you land in the US, your first stop will likely be John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, or Orlando International Airport (MCO) or Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) in Orlando.
You can kick-start the planning process of your twin centre holiday as early as 36 months ahead of your intended departure date by making an initial deposit to secure your booking and ensure a fixed price. This early booking gives you the freedom to manage the remaining expenses through convenient instalment plans, giving you plenty of time to get excited for your dream trip.
There are several ways to travel between New York and Orlando, the most common being to fly. Both New York and Orlando have major airports with numerous airlines offering direct flights available between the cities.
If you’re looking for an alternative to flying, taking a road trip can be an exciting option. Driving along the East Coast allows you to explore different cities and attractions along the way, making your journey part of the adventure.
Additionally, there are also long-distance buses that are affordable and relatively straightforward, although long (between 18-24 hours). These bus services usually have a variety of amenities, making the journey as comfy as it can be.
Getting around on New York twin-centre holidays can be an adventure in itself, and there are plenty of transportation options available for both locals and tourists visiting the city.
The subway system is a popular and efficient way to navigate the city. With an extensive network of routes and stations, you’ll find that there’s access to almost every part of the city, making it a convenient choice for travelers looking to explore. It can get a bit crowded during peak hours, so plan your travel times with this in mind.
Buses are another option. They cover the areas not serviced by the subway and give a chance to see the city streets up close, but can of course be slower due to traffic congestion. Taxis and ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft are widely available and offer door-to-door services. If you’re looking for comfort and don’t want the hassle of dealing with public transport, it can be a good option.
Walking is also a great way to explore New York, especially in areas like Manhattan where many attractions are within a reasonable distance. It’s a great way to soak in the vibrant atmosphere of the city and get lost down bustling sidewalks.
Families visiting New York can find plenty of engaging activities suitable for all ages, if you know where to look.
The American Museum of Natural History is a top pick. It has interesting interactive exhibits and educational programs that cater to kids’ curiosity about the natural world. For another educational experience, the Children's Museum of Manhattan has hands-on exhibits, workshops, and interactive displays tailored to young minds.
Central Park also has ample opportunities for getting outside and exploring. It’s a great place to have picnics, take boat rides at the Central Park Lake, and enjoy visits to the Central Park Zoo. The park's vast size has plenty of space for children to run around, play, and burn off any excess energy. The iconic Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island can be an enlightening historical and cultural experience for those interested in the nation's heritage. The ferry ride to the islands gives scenic views of the New York skyline that the whole family will love.
Finally, Coney Island, with its famous boardwalk, amusement park rides, and the renowned Luna Park, is a favourite among families looking to enjoy a fun-filled day by the sea.
Orlando is known for its world-class theme parks, and each have their own unique charm.
Walt Disney World Resort, comprising multiple theme parks such as Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, is an iconic and enchanting experience for families with kids, with a blend of beloved characters, thrilling rides, and awesome shows.

With a mix of immersive attractions, live shows, and themed experiences, it’s loved by both thrill-seekers and those looking for a more cinematic adventure.
LEGOLAND Florida Resort is designed specifically for families with younger children, and offers a playful and immersive environment filled with LEGO-themed attractions, rides, and interactive experiences. Its focus on hands-on activities and creative exploration makes it a hit with families seeking a more relaxed and child-centric park.
The ideal duration for a visit to Orlando twin-centre holidays will depend on how much you want to see and do. For a brief getaway, a 3 to 4-day trip gives enough time to explore one or two of the major theme parks such as Walt Disney World Resort or Universal Orlando Resort, so you can enjoy some of the key attractions, shows, and entertainment options.
For a more comprehensive experience, a 5 to 7-day stay means you can explore a wider range of attractions and shows while also venturing into other popular destinations like LEGOLAND Florida Resort. You’ll also have enough time to discover some of the additional attractions in the area, try out more dining options, and hit the shops.
If you’re after a more leisurely trip, a 10-day visit allows for a more relaxed pace, so you can experience a variety of theme parks and activities, and possibly venture into the surrounding areas for day trips or excursions.
