We recommend visiting Orlando during the winter months from late November to March. The weather tends to be milder, making it more comfortable for those must-do theme park visits as you’ll escape the scorching summer heat and humidity that Florida is known for. Any off-peak months (mostly outside of summer and spring break) also mean you’ll experience smaller crowds and shorter queues at the theme parks. But beware that Orlando's popular Disney and Universal parks still draw visitors year-round, so some level of crowds are always to be expected.
Get the ball rolling with your Orlando twin-centre holiday.
The best time to visit the Bahamas is usually the drier season, which typically runs from December to April. This time of year offers clear blue skies, lower humidity, and consistently warm and sunny weather — perfect if you’re looking to make the most of the comfortable temperatures with outdoor activities and beach watersports. You’ll also avoid the risk of hurricanes which are much more common in the Caribbean during late spring through to September.

Orlando International Airport (MCO) is typically the top choice for your Orlando travels as it’s conveniently located just 6 miles from the heart of Downtown Orlando. When heading to the Bahamas, there are 5 International airports available and it’s typically best to choose the airport closest to the island resort you’re heading to. They are Marsh Harbour, Rock Sound International Airport, Lynden Pindling Airport, Exuma International Airport, and Grand Bahama International Airport.
Orlando follows Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) while the Bahamas are on Eastern Standard Time (EST), meaning Orlando is typically an hour ahead of the Bahamas. But remember that daylight saving time changes can occasionally change, but don’t worry, the likelihood is that your Orlando and Bahamas multi-centre holidays won’t be affected by time difference.
The distance between Orlando and the Bahamas is approximately 200 miles, meaning the flight duration is just 1 to 2 speedy hours depending on your chosen route.
A trip to the Bahamas is a destination simply made for beach lovers thanks to its endless selection of world-class coastal spots. Cable Beach on New Providence Island has 3 miles of gorgeously soft white sand and a vibrant nightlife if you fancy a night of cocktails. Or there’s Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island which gets its name from its iconic pink-hued sands, perfect for getting picturesque family snaps.
Animal lovers looking for a once-in-a-lifetime excursion simply have to check out the famous Pig Beach, a totally secluded and uninhabited island home to a colony of wild pigs and tropical white shores. And don’t forget Taino Beach on Grand Bahama Island, a family-friendly destination thanks to its calm and shallow waters perfect for paddling with the little ones. Plus it has a variety of watersports if you fancy an afternoon of adrenaline-pumped beach fun.
The Bahamas is an absolute paradise for stunning coastal towns and must-visit attractions. Explore the vibrant capital city of Nassau boasting charming colonial architecture, upscale shopping and historical sites like the 102-ft Queen’s Staircase. Or you can head to Paradise Island known for its pristine beaches, five-star hotels, luxurious casinos, and waterparks open for day passes. For an eco-based itinerary, we recommend checking out Andros Island, the largest of the Bahamian islands and renowned for its lineup of outdoorsy activities built for soaking up the island’s beauty, including nature trails, scuba excursions, boat rentals, and underwater cave tours.
Definitely! The Bahamas offers an array of family-friendly attractions and activities beyond its beautiful beaches. The Atlantis Paradise Island Resort located on Paradise Island is a must for water babies and thrill-seekers thanks to its fun-filled water park packed with tube slides, body flumes, and winding lazy rivers. You can also visit the on-site aquarium home to over 250 aquatic animals including sharks, rays, eels and loads more.
There’s also Nassua’s Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre where you’ll spot all your favourite animals and get up close and personal with the zoo’s famous marching flamingos.
And don’t forget Lucayan National Park on Grand Bahama Island! Here you’ll have an unforgettable family day out exploring the park’s world's longest underwater cave system.
The Bahamas has restaurants for all tastes and ages. For a sophisticated night out, try booking a table at Nassau’s Graycliff Restaurant located within the historic Graycliff Hotel. Or there’s Dune at The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort on Paradise Island that combines breathtaking oceanfront dining and exquisite culinary creations made from local Bahamian ingredients. Nassau’s Café Matisse is another highlight, renowned for its gorgeous tropical garden setting and Italian and Caribbean fusion menu.
There are plenty more laid-back options for families with picky eaters too. Try out Fish Fry at Arawak Cay known for its lively welcoming atmosphere and catch-of-the-day seafood. Or there’s Nassua’s Poop Deck, another casual seafront eatery perfect for a quick bite to eat of family favourites like grilled meats, burgers, and pastas to feed youngsters (no doubt the name will cause a few chuckles).
Multi-centre holidays in Orlando and Bahamas wouldn’t feel complete without a ride on a white-knuckle rollercoaster — and it’s not all about Universal and Disney in Orlando. There’s Manta at SeaWorld where you can soar like a manta ray thanks its lie-down flying position. Or right next door you can take a ride on the 200-ft drop of Manta before floating around the park’s lakes and into all sorts of air-time hills and turns. You can also take a day trip to Tampa Bay’s Busch Gardens for a ride on the new Iron Gwazi — a must for those looking for extreme thrills thanks to its record-breaking speeds that plunge riders down a 91-degree drop!
There are several transport options for getting around during your Orlando and Bahamas twin-centre holidays. Renting a car is a popular choice because it’s convenient and gives you total flexibility. Apps like Uber and Lyft are also readily available and are usually a super cost-effective option for shorter trips and airport transfers.
There are also public transport options like Lynx, the city’s bus service or the I-Ride Trolley which takes you up and down the International Drive stretch of hotels, restaurants, and attractions. And if you’re staying in an on-site hotel in the Disney or Universal Resorts, rest assured they have complimentary transportation (buses, trams, boats, and monorails) that make it easy and totally free to travel between hotels, theme parks and entertainment districts like Universal’s CityWalk and Disney Springs.
