Orlando is a prime destination for the winter as it provides the opportunity to skip out on the snow. This time of year is perfect for getting time off work and escaping the unforgiving cold weather. Orlando also has a variety of attractions and venues to certainly make any trip worth their while.
It can certainly prove to be an adventure if there is the proper planning and preparations for the safety and well-being of your loved ones. To best ensure the best possible Christmas trip to Orlando, here are 4 tips for spending the holidays in this magical city.
Planning for Travel and Traffic
The most important thing to consider for your loved ones is their peace of mind and well-being. Before planning a Christmas trip to Orlando, you should always make sure that they can travel the required distance and how much they are willing to move in a day.
Take into consideration every medical need and have a plan in place for anything that should happen. It’s also important to bring extra prescription medications in the event they get lost or your travel plans get delayed. Considering how busy this city will get during the holidays, it is extremely important to be prepared for the unexpected.
Finding Accessible Places
It is important to find all the ways in which theme parks and other attractions are accessible.
For instance, you can find special assistance at a theme park, especially if you can call ahead.
One of the best actions to consider is having a mobile scooter to travel around with. This is especially useful for going on long treks throughout the theme parks. You could even visit multiple places in a day.
The best practice is to also find hotels that have handicap accessibility including lower sinks and counters as well as ways for wheelchair-bound visitors to get around.
Get Some R&R
It’s not all just venues and attractions, either. There are several amazing spas and places for relaxation and rejuvenation throughout Orlando. Disney World for instance has a spa at the Grand Floridian Resort called Senses. You may also want to try the Mandara Spa located at Universal Orlando and World Disney World Swan and Dolphin.
If the sky is the limit when it comes to spas, then the most recommended spa is the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Disney World. It is a 13,000 square foot place with so much to offer in terms of finding your bliss.
Finding the Finest Dining
You have many options for treating your loved ones to the best the world has to offer. You could probably start at Epcot as there are amazing venues all throughout the World Showcase. We like Canada’s Le Cellier Steakhouse, Germany’s Biergarten, France’s Monsieur Paul, as well as Teppan Edo in Japan.
While Epcot is considered a strong choice for exploring high-end cuisine, there are other places where you can get a 5-star experience such as the Waldorf Astoria or the Trattoria del Porto located in Universal.
Going to Orlando is an awesome destination for your senior loved ones. Especially the theme parks, a place where imagination can be re-captured and celebrated. With proper planning for medical care and mobility, you can make the world within the magic city your oyster.
