By bus: Walt Disney World Resort runs bus services between their hotels and theme parks.


Halloween:There’s a real buzz in the theme parks during the run up to Halloween. Universal Orlando® holds Halloween Horror Nights, where you can relive some of your favourite scary movies with live shows and haunted houses. Walt Disney World Resort holds kid-friendly Halloween parties. Dress up as your favourite Disney character and munch on sticky toffee apples as you watch the fireworks display.

Christmas: Disney’s Magic Kingdom® turns into a winter wonderland at Christmas time. Crisp white snowflakes descend on the park as Santa joins Mickey Mouse in a festive parade.
