Orlando

— 5 nights

Theme Park Capital of the World

For most people, any mention of Orlando immediately conjures up images of sprawling theme parks filled with characters plucked right out of popular animated movies.
Have a day of magic on the 23rd (Sat) at Walt Disney World Resort. Pack the 25th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Orlando Resort. There's more to do: find something for the whole family at Universal's Islands of Adventure.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Orlando trip builder site.

Newark to Orlando is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Newark in October, with highs in Orlando at 85°F and lows at 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Sanibel Island.
