Orlando Holiday Tips
  • Advise your bank and credit card company that you are travelling abroad
  • Change some sterling into dollars before you go. It is wise to take dollar travellers cheques but there are plenty of ATMs where you can withdraw cash with a debit card
  • You and any additional drivers need both parts of your driving licence to hire a car
  • Carry a picture driving licence as you will need ID when using a credit card
  • You need to be over 21 to drink alcohol in a bar or restaurant – carry ID as you may be challenged
  • It is traditional to tip in Orlando – 15 - 20 per cent depending on the level of service
  • Turn your phone off roaming to make sure you’re not charged unnecessarily whilst you’re in the US. Check out with your mobile provider before you leave
  • Families often take walkie-talkies with them to keep in touch with one another in the Theme Parks
  • If any of your party has special needs, you couldn’t have chosen a better destination. Ask your tour operator to advise on the best hotels to meet your needs
  • All Theme Parks are equipped for visitors with special needs and wheelchairs can be rented
  • It is strongly recommended to buy travel insurance covering you and your family
