Tampa is not much further than Orlando airport and is meant to be a lot calmer. If it was someone other than BA, then it would be my choice of route. Orlando international is hell on earth!

Sanford is Great!
Always try and get Tampa- much easier airport to get through customs going into USA.
Not all schools have half-term w/c 12th Feb (ours is w/c 19th Feb).

Also for the quoted dates you'd still have to take kids out of school for at least 5 days; the Thurs/Fri before half-term and the Mon/Tues/Wed after (assuming you land in the UK on the Wednesday morning).

We've paid not much more for July/August direct flights with BA (LGW-FLL outbound and MCO-LGW return).

OK I am only aware of my half term dates but it is still half term for many, I dide=nt say you would not have to take the kids out of school at all....
To be honest if you're staying on International Drive you're probably better off without a car! The Iride shuttle bus is so and handy and is very cheap. Most hotels offer free shuttle services to many of the theme parks. If you have a car you have to pay high rates everyday to park your car at the theme parks as well as queuing in and out of the parks if it's busy. I don't really think this is a bargain by any stretch but I would say I've found February a good time to go.
And op...was it really worth posting it again for 0.1% of a price drop. I don't think the people who didn't book it a few days ago are going to all be booking now at £2 less!
12 nights , no hotel - £1885 for 2A & 2C, you've got to be kidding.

Numerous way to bypass Walt Disney World parking fees. E.g. Magic Kingdom take right lane at main gate and say you are driving to Fort Wilderness or one of the main monorail resorts then follow the main traffic to the left for parking instead of going straight.

I would never visit Florida without a car as it beats the Disney transport every time.

What about Universal, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens....most people go to Florida to visit more than just Disney.

If they're staying in a villa a car is probably needed but not for those on I-Drive . The hotel shuttles or Iride usually leave you right off at the gate at most parks.
I've never had a problem with the Disney Transportation anytime I've visited.

No harm done, maybe some others have appreciated it!!!

You won't get a decent hotel in the idrive or tourist areas for much less than £50 per night. Our last visit was August, 22 nights with Virgin staying at the Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista - £2200 for 2A and 2C.

We generally pay £1500 for 2 weeks, £2100 for 3.

Does that include a fully insured car??
I have been to Florida many times and i have never paid £50 a night for Orlando hotels!!
