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.

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.
Fort Myers Highlights
Fort Myers enjoys access to some of the best shoreline along Florida’s southwestern coast, including the picturesque barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva, and of course the ever-popular Fort Myers Beach. A rich culture infused with the arts, culinary style and warm southern hospitality makes Fort Myers a must-visit Gulf Coast destination.
Fort Myers embodies a compelling history dating back to when Native Americans first inhabited Florida’s southwest coast. More recently, the city was home to famous residents Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, while nowadays there are theatres, art and music walks and galleries to immerse yourselves in to see the delights this area has to offer.
Award-winning beaches hug the Gulf of Mexico coastline and barrier islands in the Fort Myers area, and their stunning natural beauty is what brings flocks of visitors – as well as kaleidoscopic marine life – to this part of Florida every year. Its white sands, gently rolling surf and out-of-this-world sunsets will make you think you’ve stepped right into a postcard!
Winding coastal waterways, free-flowing rivers, and expansive state parks make up much of the surrounding Fort Myers area along the Gulf Coast. There are hundreds of opportunities to explore, whether it’s swimming and diving, hopping in a kayak or canoe, or good old-fashioned walking – be one with nature any way you choose.
Fort Myers enjoys a mix of southern-style cuisine and mouth-watering seafood in its cafés and restaurants. Whether you dine casually by the ocean or book a table in one of the city’s fine dining establishments, you’ll be satisfied beyond measure with the flavours, fusions and flair that this extraordinary region offers.

Orlando & Fort Myers FAQs
Florida (aka the Sunshine State) lives up to its reputation with consistently sunny weather throughout the year. But to escape the scorching summer heat and humidity, try planning your Orlando holiday between late November and March. This time period offers milder temperatures and fewer crowds at the theme parks, making it an ideal time for a visit. However, just bear in mind that Orlando's most popular attractions, like Disney and Universal Studios, draw visitors year-round, so some queues can be expected whenever you come. Note: Summer and Spring Break tend to be the city’s busiest tourist periods!
You should have bundles of things to add to your Orlando twin-centre itinerary!
Like Orlando, Fort Myers also enjoys a subtropical climate, making it a hot and sunny year-round destination. However, if you want to avoid the wetter and more hurricane-prone season from late Spring to September, the drier season from December to April is recommended. You’ll also have a quieter and more peaceful experience by visiting the late fall months of October and November when you catch the last of the summer sun without the huge crowds.

Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the most convenient choice for Orlando travellers as it’s located just 6 miles from the main theme park district at the heart of the city.
