Orlando Holidays & Central Florida!
Hello...we would like to introduce ourselves and tell you a little about our travels
and adventures over the last eleven years to Central Florida! We are the Philp family
from the UK who love to travel to Orlando and its surrounding areas.

taxi driver and map reader, plus a great cocktail waiter 'Tom Cruise eat your heart out'.

Tigger's favorite fan'...No 1 planner and time keeper...also love's the odd Rum runner
now and again.
Excitable Grandma Jean...number two fan and 'stay there you lot I must have another photo'.
Also Grandad Lance..."Where's that War Bird museum and get me down to Old Town Kissimmee
I need to purchase my 20th baseball cap and watch the 50's & 60's drive through". Sadly
and suddenly passed away November 2009. Missed by all the family.
our three 'wonderful' children (that's suspect at times). Stuart...professional
thrill seeker and "It's about time I whooped you at golf Dad". Charlotte..."It's so unfair
because I'm 20 and can't drink out here" backs up her big brother on the rides.
And last but not least James...let's not forget James, 14 going on 40. Expert on
everything, "Teenagers rock and don't you lot forget it".
Well that's the intro's done onto the sensible stuff...personally I've been travelling
to Florida since 1977 (Day's served in the Royal Navy) and travelled up and down the West
(Gulf) coast, East coast, Florida Keys and beyond, and seen this part of Central Florida
grow beyond recognition.

only three years old. What we would like to share with you is supplying helpful content
and recommendations based on our family knowledge throughout our website
regarding all aspects to planning your Orlando holidays.
