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.
Kids will enjoy Walt Disney World Resort and Magic Kingdom Park. Step out of Orlando to go to Anaheim and see The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which is approximately 36 minutes away. Pack the 28th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Orlando Resort. There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal's Islands of Adventure, laugh and play at Discovery Cove, test your problem-solving skills at The Escape Game Orlando, and discover the magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

To see maps, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Orlando trip itinerary builder website .

Johannesburg, South Africa to Orlando is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Johannesburg to Orlando due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Johannesburg in December, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Orlando: temperatures range from 29°C by day to 17°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to travel to Miami Beach.

Separated by water from the neighboring city of Miami, Miami Beach sits on a barrier island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Miami Beach Boardwalk. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like South Beach and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Miami Beach: Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center (in Tavernier), Shark Valley Visitor Center (in Everglades National Park) and Key Largo (Dolphins Plus Marine Mammal Responder & Island Dolphin Care). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Lincoln Road, don't miss a visit to Collins Avenue, and get to know the fascinating history of Art Deco Historic District.

For other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, go to the Miami Beach vacation website .

You can fly from Orlando to Miami Beach in 3.5 hours. Other options are to drive; or do a combination of flight and bus. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Orlando in January: high temperatures in Miami Beach hover around 29°C and lows are around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
