All Orlando Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
unhelpful? At least to those who live close enough to Gatwick to take advantage. It's only £800 from Glasgow the dates you have selected anyway.
Or you can book a local flight from scotland to Gatwick (return) and stay at premier inn (Gatwick airport). For outbound (last flight the night before) and first flight next day after arrival can work out cheaper than flying from Scotland direct. Am considering to try Norwegian airline from gtw this year.
Or, I could could just leave it right here to be... oh, whats the word.... ????
Great. Go post that as a seperate deal for those on here who live close enough to Gatwick to realistically take that option...
Excellent price op
The new Star Wars land in Hollywood Studios, Orlando is not until the end of 2019, was confirmed a few days ago.
My hubby says the exact same! I felt really next to no jet lag on the Dreamliner though.
We went last year between May & June glorious weather just been a bad couple of weeks over there!
Wondering if they ever have these sort of deals in the autumn?
If only I could afford a holiday Chanchi, bloody good prices (y)
Cheers for that.
Wow! I pay double this for flights alone!
Yeah TUI includes resort fees for Florida, can be found through a bit of digging of the website.
Is resort fee included in this? I think its $28 per night to pay when you arrive. Couldnt find it in the deal though, so may be included.
Perfect location and so close to all the attractions and eateries. Excellent price and you only really use the hotel to sleep and shower so if on a budget like most of us this is a cracking deal
I Checked the prices what a difference ! Unfortunately it will be to far to get to that airport with 4 children , thank you for the info
Check the price from Tui is you fly from Glasgow. Schools go back earlier in Scotland and so you can get back in term time (for them) and save loads :-)
Having had a better look, this deal is ridiculous. They are charging £1400 for 2 adults then only £1440 for the 2adults + 2 kids, it costs more (£40) to add 5Kg to your luggage
So this is a Total price of £1235 for 4 flights and a hotel for 2 weeks? Not per person
Price = standard but water park is quite good !!!!!!! Hotel location is good as well !!!! Use uber for transport !!!!!!!love florida !!!!!!!
A downside yes but if areas had overlap at different times of the year it could still work. Certainly better than the current system. Plus there's always Xmas.
The downside of that idea is many people have family spread across the country so it would be next to impossible to plan a extended family holiday.
Yeah it is, obviously you can't plan the weather so we just go with the flow, we've been in august 4 times and never been hit bad, we've got lucky, if we do get hit though we'll just follow the weather and go to Texas or Cuba or something, we always find a way to have fun.... I'll even do the 20hr drive to Canada if need be. "Tropical cyclones have affected Florida in every month of the year with the exceptions of January and March. Nearly one-third of the cyclones affected the state in September, and nearly three-fourths of the storms affected the state between August and October, which coincides with the peak of the hurricane season." They're also predicting one brewing up right now which wouldn't be good for the dates on this deal. https://www.forbes.com/sites/marshallshepherd/2018/05/14/hurricane-season-starts-june-1-something-may-be-brewing-now-in-the-gulf/#1ada14e06789
Isn't that time of year hurricane season? The in-laws went last year August/September and got hit really bad. Spent the whole holiday trying to get home
Do you not think we need an overhaul of the school holiday system? It's not just the pricing that's the problem but also everywhere is so busy at those times. It wouldn't be hard to scrap the 6 week holiday and have more two week holidays through the year and then each county has different dates for all their schools. It makes perfect sense to me.
I don't know about everywhere else in Scotland but certainly out local schools recognise life experience and the education it gives you is as important as formal education.. it not just holidays I take them out for we go on day trips in school term, especially when we have friends on holiday here wanting to see the area... all the better when they fit with something they are studying.. the younger ones get asked to take photos and report back to class too so everyone gains something... by no means are you actively encouraged, you are also expected not to so so at the detriment of thier leaning.. use your common sense regarding exam time ect.. but it certainly ain't frowned upon way it appears to be in England.
That’s a great deal
Wow really? Think we need to move there then. We've not been out the country in 6 years as just cannot afford school holiday prices! So its local we go. End of. Quite sad really
No fine if in Scotland for taking kids out during school term :)
Great value . dont be put off by sanford.just a bit further away.not great shakes. If ur looking at florida posts you probably know how ridiculously expensive disney passes are. There is plenty to do outside the theme parks
I got a premium upgrade with 'extra legroom' on a transatlantic flight back when they were First Choice. We got stuck in front of a wall. As you can't put your foot underneath a sheer wall the practical result was that you basically had less room to stretch your legs than with regular seats. Our upgrade didn't cost us anything (staff benefit) so we didn't really have a moan but the people next to us had paid a fair bit and weren't happy. Not convinced they've improved things since they were taken over.
MAN to SFB, 28th April to 8th may, £229 pp if you can make those dates work for ya? there’s also premium club seats at £195
Just a tip. Car hire is always a risky business - will I get ripped off for damage already there on the car before I drive it away? It's not so much of a problem in the US as elsewhere, like Spain, Italy etc, but to be on the safe side I'd recommend you do a walk around the car with a member of staff noting any existing damage (they're supposed to do this but never do) and/or do a walk round taking a video of all 4 sides and top of the car, focusing in on any areas of damage, scratches, nicks, dings etc., making sure you are seen doing it. Same thing when you return it. A few minutes start and finish of your holiday could well save you a headache and lots of cash later on down the line. There's also insurance you can take out here before you go to cover any damage excess and the like. Can't remember what it's called but it will be around £20-£25 and will replace/compliment the insurance you get out there. Again, not so much a problem in the US, but car hire staff always try to scare you or put a massive charge on your credit card to cover damage trying to force you to take out their additional, but expensive, further cover instead. Some may even say that your UK cover is irrelevant and won't cover you so you MUST take out their additional cover. Bunkum - just ignore them as you don't have to. Cracking deal - and I'm only 2 miles from Gatwick! But wife works for an airline so gets 12 free flights a year luckily!
There seems to be (or was as I was looking) premium club seats on the 21st and 25th, didn’t look at any others, only 3 on each though. £217 on the 21st which is even better value :)
Search and select the flight you’re interested in, on the next page after you’ve selected it, it lists all available upgrades and options. things like extra leg room seats, exit seats, baggage and ‘if there’s any available’ the premium upgrade seats. when you’ve looked at a couple you’ll get the idea, the premium cabin is small so there’s not always availability and if there’s 4 or more of you it can start to get expensive, but Florida’s never really been a “cheap” holiday :)
Fair point. I've been in the bubble once with virgin and it was great - apart from a toddler up there! Lol But I do find the virgin 747 fleet a bit dated. The dreamliner also shaves 30/60 mins from your journey
I respectfully disagree, The bubble on the 747-400 (which is what VIrgin us for Orlando) is the best economy flying experience in my opinion.
I'm going to the gulf coast so either airport ok for me anyway Dreamliner on tui far better experience than old virgin 787 or 747. I've done both multiple times.
Tui are the rebranded thomson. First choice are part of the group Thomas cook completely different
TUI is free food & drink, movies/tv/games on the Dreamliner. We didn't mind Sanford, not been to Orlando airport but told it's a longer wait.
(lol) bless you!
Well you learned how to use the word “literally” at least. Didn’t think it’d hurt your feelings so much though.
Hahaha yip! And I'm well impressed with myself, literally.
No, that was sarcasm. As in, PC culture. Where everyone’s offended. Jokes aren’t as funny when you have to explain them. Also, did you actually just dig up a 3 week post to try and get your own back? I really struck a nerve didn’t I?
Anyone who has went on one of these cruises will never look at a holiday the same way. The food, entertainment etc is amazing.
No thanks, off to Cyprus and Istanbul. :D
Haiti? You couldn’t pay me to go there! It may be a Caribbean cruise, but it’s the parts that are least popular. For a reason
Think you'd better stay at home
Seems a lot for two weeks on a boat in Autumn heading to rather uninspiring destinations.
There are flights with Thomson from Manc to Sanford leaving over the next week or so for 11 / 14 nights for £251 return. Perfect to combine with this and get a cheap hotel / motel and car. I would post a deal but don't bother anymore since my last got taken down as self promotion!?!
Pay at the gate as you only have one or two days and prepare to pay top whack.
Going to FL in 2 weeks to stay at in-laws and planning on one day visit to Disney world primarily to see Mickey Mouse. Seems like a real cluster to work out best options for one or two days park only - anyone have advice on best course of action from experience? Be greatly received.
Is this site legit?
That why you have to go to all of them! I agree that universal is best but all of them are amazing and bigger and better than anything we have in the UK. If you’re going to Florida and haven’t been before you really need to experience Disney and Universal (and Busch Gardens too if you have time). The Disney Water parks are also incredible (wasn’t much for wet n wild) and well worth a visit. Prices have gone up a lot since we last went in 2008 - back then we got the 3 week ultimate pass for £189! But then the dollar was $2 to £1 at the time so I guess that’s to be expected, given the current exchange rates & 10 years worth of inflation :(
You could get the same ticket from Florida Escapes (TravelBuzz/Hays Travel) £211 Adult and £205 Child. You can also add ticket for 14 days Legoland for £28 or Gatorland 1 day for £11. Plus there is the usual shopping voucher book. Also code SAVETEN for £10 off multiticket. This offer ends 3rd April 18.
This simply isn't true.
If you contact Florida tix, they will probably price match, they priced matched for me a couple of months ago. They provided a great service. Real tickets arrived by recorded delivery within a day or two
I second that, those voucher books have saved me a lot of money down the years, 10% or more off your bill in lots of places, just for tearing a coupon out of a free book.
If you just plan to go for a few days its worth staying at one of the universal hotels - Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel or the Loews Royal Pacific Resort Hotel (cheapest at around £300 a night) . If you stay one night, you get two days of Universal express, unlimited queue jumping worth £680 for a family of four. We had a villa and spent a night at the Hard Rock, well worth doing. We made the mistake of going to Harry potter early morning access which was a waste of time, with three hotels worth of people doing the same thing, ride times were long and shorter any evening. Meant we had to leave the hotel room at about 7.40am to get to the front gates for 8am. Stupid. You are better having a good sleep and staying out late both evenings.
Code is actually 4easter Thanks op, saved £50 on two combo tickets for 2 weeks.. great timing
Good deal. Makes that the cheapest place to get 14 day ultimate Disney tickets at £339.84.
You will never have enough money or time for Florida, so take what you can afford. Planning is always the key. I arrive jump straight into an Uber and go to Walmart on turkey lake,stock up on drinking,snacks, foot cream,sun cream, and I get my kids all the latest t-shirts that will be on sale in the parks.... universal/ Disney t-shirts from 25 dollars up ... Walmart ( better quality) 8 dollars. I could give you endless tips. I’m back over there at the end of the year for 3 weeks . Shout if you need help

Guys is it possible get such deals for Summer hols ? Was thinking family hols for Orlando or New York. Thoughts appreciated ..
Some great prices
You had me at Thailand!
Obviously the wrong Baymont then, as they have large picture windows, fridge, microwave and 42" tv - not sure which one you stayed at?
you get an esta not a visa usually get a response once you fill it in .
The baymont Hotel is a dive, I stayed there, avoid it like the plague, the rooms are riddled with dampness, there are no windows in the rooms, the pool is a joke, just check out trip advisor, they changed the name of the hotel because of all the negative comments.
I just don't like the idea of holiday in USA .
Very expensive destinations once there.
you a Star well done .....
I can totally relate to that, you wouldn't believe the number of conversations we've had about hitting the road again. Or completely relocating somewhere warmer - but then I'd have to give up on m daily check-in at HUKD. XD
This was basically my intention to see that it is affordable to travel the world if you put the effort in, I myself have travelled a fair bit as well the worst part is being back home and just wanting to do it all over again straight away :(
Visited all these places separately spent alot more on flights. Great price.
Great price...... well spotted, and yes you can just go for a week, they will allow you entry (there are no current visit restrictions)
Of course you can go to Orlando for a week - lots of people do.
Been for a week twice, better than not at all
Excellent but u can't go to Orlando for just a week!
LOL. You managed to spot a typo but completely missed the point of the entire comment. For clarity, I have been to Florida numerous times and know exactly what else there is to do beyond Disney and Universal
Thanks for posting. If anyone knows of any park ticket deals that are on at present could you drop me a message. We’re there in May but holding out for park ticket deal... if they come about!! Cheers.
Good deal as flights on their own can be more expensive. Not it a fan of Thomas Cook flights, they’re rather basic but they get you there :) don’t see why you have to buy drinks, even water, on a 9+ hour flight? but they do fly into Orlando which is a bonus if that’s what you need/want/prefer, personality prefer Sanford as it’s smaller and easier (99% of the time like
It's Disneyworld not Disneyland :)
You do know that there is no Disneyland in Orlando don't you ? Also I am assuming you have never been to Florida if you think all there is to do there is Disney. We spent 4 weeks there on our last trip and only 11 of those days were spent at Disney parks and we filled most days of our holiday.
Credit for not capturing animals anymore and no longer breeding them in captivity. Should they just close down before your happy? Are they not listening? Give them chance to change their business model.
Credit for what? They still hold whales captive and make them perform tricks for food. They only change their practices when public pressure gets to much and their stock price drops.
To be fair they are not doing that anymore are they? So give them some credit.
Should be pretty warm over there...
That's kind of besides the point. Making money from slavery is not cool, which is essentially what they are doing, taking these animals out of the wild, or breeding them and putting them in tiny goldfish bowls when their natural range is hundreds or sometimes thousands of miles. Making them perform circus tricks so as not to go hungry amongst other inhumane and cruel practices.
