1 day tour from Miami to Orlando are not recommended because the distance between the 2 cities is almost 400 km, so it would be necessary to do 800 km in one day. Consequently, it would be too tired and a visit to any park would not be exciting.
The shorter tour or minimum travel period is 2 days, although it is advisable to spend at least 3-4 days in Orlando, in order to at least see the main parks or if you want to visit the extraordinary Kennedy Space Center.
If you only have 2 days to visit Orlando, don't worry you will still be able to spend 2 unforgettable days and take home beautiful memories. Which parks to visit in 2 days?
It is advisable to visit one of the Disney parks one day and one of the Universal Studios Parks one day. The best choice is to buy tickets that allow you to visit the various Disney parks or the parks on the same day Universal Studios.
With 3 days available you can choose to dedicate all 3 days to the Orlando theme parks, or to spend 2 days in the Orlando parks and one for visiting the extraordinary Kennedy Space Center.
Also in this case, especially if you choose the second option, it is advisable to buy tickets that allow you to visit the various Disney parks or those of Universal Studios on the same day.
If you have 4 or 5 days available, you can also aim to see not only the Disney and Universal Studios parks, but also those of SeaWorld or if you prefer the various attractions in the city. With this tour duration it is easier to visit the main parks and enter the visit to the Kennedy Space Center.
The choice of Park Hopper Tickets, which allow you to visit multiple parks on the same day, is always the best choice, so you can visit at least the main parks in a few days.
We have indicated holidays instead of tours, for periods of 6 or more days, because in this case the duration is that of a classic holiday, and in this case those who aim the entire trip to visit Orlando, perhaps even by flight, can also fall. towards the city airport.
The lucky ones who will be able to spend a week or more in the world capital of amusement parks, will be able to dedicate even a single day to visit each park, especially if they are preferred, so as not to miss the main attractions and shows.
with over 20 amusement parks and over 50 attractions deciding what to visit is not easy, especially if you have a few days available.
