My perfect Florida holiday by Chloe
- Stay at Liki Tiki for the two weeks, where you get value plus benefits such as free paddle boats, mini golf and 1 week's wifi. We also have free nights running with this hotel at the moment.
- On day 1 spend some time getting to know your bearings once you've landed and checked in. Remember to collect coupons for discounts throughout your stay and try to get on to Florida time as soon as possible by staying awake a little longer than usual.
- On day 2 it's time to use your 5 day disney ticket and visit Disney's Animal Kingdom. Make sure you check out the safari ride!
- Fulfil your dreams at Disney's Magic Kingdom on day 3. Find out the times for the character parades and go back in the evening to see the fireworks display.
- Take a day off from Disney on day 4 and swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove. This needs to be reserved before you leave the UK. The day is also fully inclusive with the ticket.
- On day 5 go back to Disney and visit Disney's Epcot. The Soarin'TM ride actually makes you feel like you are flying.
- Day 6 has to be at Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can't chicken out of going on the Twilight Zone Tower of TerrorTM. This park is more grown up and perfect for the teenagers. It's also brilliant at night too.
- You're half way through the holiday and it's time to do a bit of relaxing on day 7. Maybe spend the day near the pool or do a bit of shopping. If you take a drive out along International Drive you might be able to see one of the shows in the evening. The Pirates show and Arabian Night shows are very good.
- Now the batteries are recharged it's time to head over to Universal Resort on day 8. Explore the mysteries of HowgartsTM castle at The Wizarding World of Harry PotterTM
- A day is not enough to see all the attractions at Universal Studios so head back there for day 9. The Mummy ride looks worse than it is!
- Day 10 and it's time to go on the Superman Ride and Hulk ride at Universal's Islands of Adventure
- If day 11 is the hottest day then it's time to go to Aquatica. Even if it is cold and raining you will still have fun as there are some of the best water rides ever here.
- Did you spot any nice souvenirs? Use day 12 to get some shopping in at the malls in Orlando. If shopping isn't your thing then head over to SeaWorld and sit in the "Splash zone", it's hilarious.
- If you have the energy to get to Busch Gardens then do it on day 13. It's worth the drive as you can mix the rides with feeding all the animals.
- Time to head home on day 14, but you may still have time to go to Downtown Disney, where you can check-in to your flight whilst in the park (for $10 each) and visit Strodes restaurant, as well as have a go on the free indoor arcade!
Chloe's expert tip
- I'd recommend hiring a car when you're in Florida so you have the freedom to explore the Sunshine State. We can help plan your trip or set your itinerary.

My perfect Las Vegas holiday by Clare
- On day 1 try to beat the jetlag and stay awake for as long as possible. Get out and explore. Walk around the hotel/casino to get your bearings then hit to the strip, just walk around and in and out the hotels to get a feel for Vegas!
- Now the fun begins on day 2 - hit the slot machines!! If you are serious about gaming ask your hotel if they run professional lesson teaching you how to play black jack, poker and craps. In the evening you have to do the Apollo night flight. It's a breath taking experience, that takes you down the strip in a helicopter. You can see the strip all lit up, in its full glory!
- Use day 3 to hit the shops! Shopping in Las Vegas is brilliant. You can get a cab very cheaply from the strip to the outlets. That night hit all the free entertainment on the strip...go to the Bellagio and watch the fountains go off, walk down to Treasure Island and watch the sirens show, then walk down to the Mirage and watch the volcano erupt. These are all timed perfectly so you can see them all.
- Day 4 and your last day so get up early today and head to the middle of the strip. Try and get to a Las Vegas show that night...they are better than Broadway and the West End! In the day go to The Paris hotel and go up the 'Effie Tower' you can see for miles.
Clare's expert tip
- Opposite the New York New York hotel is a large coke bottle called 'Tix 4 Tonight'. It sells show tickets for up to 60% off - get there early to bag some tickets for that evening.
