Can you help us with booking flights, or can you recommend who to book
We are not a travel agent so we cannot provide flights, but, we are happy to discuss your flight options with you
to help. There are two main airports in Orlando. Orlando International which takes the scheduled flights like
Virgin and Orlando Sanford for the charter airlines like Thomson Holidays.
Can you get tickets for us for the attractions?
It is much better to buy your tickets in advance as you can buy groups of tickets for the parks you want to visit
much more cheaply than at the gate. Be careful of buying discounted tickets at the roadside, often these are
illegal and you may find they are not valid for the parks. We can get discounted rates via our management company.

year or even later in the year.

At both Sanford and Orlando Airport the car hire and procedure is excellent. We normally book via

If you already have a US visa then all you have to do is fill in your Advance Passenger Information (API) for your

contact the American Embassy. You must apply online for an ESTA before you travel to Florida. This can be done
at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/ and this last for two years.
