August holidays to Florida in 2024 will be very popular among families, thanks to the 6-week Summer School Holiday that allows families to extend their Florida Holiday to 2/3-weeks and beyond!
Of course, the main reason many families visit Florida in August is to enjoy The Walt Disney World and Universal Orland Resort theme parks. Whilst staying on-resort is a popular choice, many families who holiday to Florida in August will opt to stay in an Orlando or Disney Area Villa for much of their trip. Orlando/ Disney Area Villa’s offer families a ‘home-away-from-home’ where they can relax, away from the more crowded theme parks, and enjoy their days by the pool, dining together as a family, playing in their own games room and generally just some quality time together whilst on their 2024 Florida holiday.
Staying in an Orlando / Disney Area Villa offers families taking advantage of the extended Summer School Holidays the ability to enjoy a longer holiday in Florida at a cheaper cost as when spread out amongst the entire party, an Orlando / Disney Area Villa is often a cheaper alternative to Disney Hotel / Universal Hotel / Orlando Hotel.
However, many guests love to split their holiday in Florida between an Orlando / Disney Area Villa and one of the 3 Premier Universal Orlando Hotels: Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Universal’s Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Royal Pacific Resort (most guests will choose to spend 3-4 nights here during their Florida 2024 holiday). This option is so popular among those travelling to Florida in August thanks to the Free Unlimited Express Passes offered to guests of these hotels for the nights they stay there (A valid Universal Orlando theme park entry ticket is required). The inclusion of Free Unlimited Express Passes proves to be extremely beneficial during August as it allows visitors to the Universal Orlando theme parks (Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure) the ability to skip the regular lines! Since August 2024 will be a very busy month for all the Orlando theme parks, this is an extremely welcomed and advantageous perk of staying at one of the 3 Premier Universal Orlando Hotels!
At Walt Disney World, you will be able to immerse yourself within EPCOT’s Food and Wine festival throughout the month of August; there will be a Festival Passport that will help guide you around the park to enjoy all the special food, drink, and festivities! Thanks to this, EPCOT can be particularly busy during the month of August however that is to be expected throughout Florida and a great way to take a break from this business is to return home to your secluded, private Orlando / Disney Area Villa! Some of the most loved Villa Resort Complexes include Reunion Resort, Champions Gate Resort, Emerald Island Resort, Winter Hills Resort and many more.
Foodies will certainly want to also check out the Miami Spice event – a 2-month long period dedicated to offering tourists and residents alike an excellent restaurant experience at local city restaurants, and The Key West Lobsterfest – delicious fresh-caught lobsters prepared by professional chefs will be dished up alongside cold drinks and fabulous free entertainment to mark the beginning of Key West Lobster season! Each 4-day Lobsterfest event is a separately ticketed event.
August 2024 is an extremely popular month for family Florida holidays, so booking your trip early is essential to avoid disappointment.
