I make no secret of the fact we’re in desperate need of family holiday. Thanks to work commitments, various unpredictabilities and a total lack of organisational skills, we haven’t managed to plan anything for this year – or even next!
Because it’ll be a couple of years away, we think it’s worth saving up and going all out! We’re looking at Florida Holidays 2021 and I can’t contain my excitement! We have considered a few other destinations, but because the kids will be 6 and 12 by then, we think Florida will be the best fit with the most to do.
I’ve been planning out dream family holiday to Florida since the idea was floated. If we go (fingers crossed) these are the things I’d love to do:
Planning our Dream Family Holiday to Florida
Florida is a proper ‘bucket list’ holiday, so I think it warrants me planning a full 2 years in advance. I’d be gutted if I missed anything (although that might be a great excuse to go back). In case you need any inspiration, this is what we’re planning for our dream family holiday to Florida:
Obviously Disney World is a huge draw. If I’m honest, it’s the main thing that’s making me lean towards Florida as a destination.
Disney World looks so amazing on TV, and even better when I read other family blogs who have shared their experience. Greg is desperate to see Toy Story land, while Emma has been in love with the look of the Magic Kingdom since she was tiny. I’ll just be happy to see my kids faces while they’re there.
I’ll also be very happy if I get to sample the food – I’ve spent many an evening down an Instagram rabbit hole looking at Disney cuisine! There are rumours that the ribs are what dreams are made of, and the puddings are unrivalled.
The Water Parks
Okay, so this is still a Disney thing, but they deserve to be mentioned in their own right. Blizzard Beach sounds amazing – I’d like to have a go on Summit Plummet but I worry I wouldn’t be brave enough when it comes to the crunch. It’s a drop of 120 feet, which sounds incredible and terrifying in equal measure.
I think my kids would really like the other water park – Typhoon Lagoon too. There’s Ketchakiddee Creek for the little ones, which would be perfect for Greg to splash about in. It has shallow pools and mini water-slides, meaning it’s not so daunting for the younger children.
Sunsets at Pier 60
I only found out this was a thing quite recently, and now I want to experience it for myself! Sunsets at Pier 60 is a nightly celebration at Clearwater Beach and is totally family-friendly. It boasts crafters, street performers, and a Sunset Cinema. If all of that didn’t tempt you enough, it’s also completely free! Winner!

Let’s face it, a family visit to Florida would be a holiday of a lifetime. There’s plenty of scope to make memories that will stick with your children forever and they’ll tell their own grandchildren about.
