Florida- 8 days

Jump to last reply

In June we're going to take our three kids (13, 15, 16) on their first trip to Florida, starting and ending in Orlando. We arrive on a Friday mid-day and leave on a Sunday early morning. I'd love to get your ideas on planning a route that includes two days at Disney and a round-trip of sorts down to the Keys. We're trying to include something for everyone in our family: animals and nature (manatees, dolphins), swimming/ snorkeling and one outlet mall with Nike shoes

So far I have the following trip ideas but don't know if it's too much driving/ backtracking?
Any suggestions for hotels for family of 5, discounted tickets etc. I'll greatly appreciate!

Friday: Arrival in hotel, Orlando (what could we do for 4-5 hours? Boat tour down St. John's River or Blue Springs in Orange City or Premium Outlet International Drive to get it done and over with?)

Saturday: Seaworld and one other park- overnight in Orlando

Sunday: Drive to Tampa, Busch Gardens (is this doable in a day?) - overnight in Tampa

Monday: Drive to Naples, visit Sanibel Island, JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge- overnight Naples

Tuesday: Corkscrew Swamp Tour and Fakahatchee strand- route 41 to Homestead via Everglades Pkwy- overnight in Naples

Wednesday: drive to Keys- overnight in?

Thursday: Anhinga Trail, drive to Kendall (Dolphin Research Center)- overnight in Fort Lauderdale

Friday: drive through West Palm Beach, Kennedy Space Center- overnight in Orlando?

Saturday: one more Disney park- overnight near airport, Orlando

Sunday: departure from Orlando 7:30 AM
