Think Orlando, and Disney’s Magic Kingdom will probably spring to mind first. The other enchanting attractions of this part of Florida include the immersive, blockbuster experiences of Universal Studios and the wild residents of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It's hardly surprising there are several direct London to Orlando flights each day. Join the crowds vying for cheaper seats and you too could soon be meeting Mickey Mouse between the Big Thunder Mountain and the Cinderella Castle.
With so many family-friendly attractions on the menu, it’s only natural that airfares between the Big Smoke and the theme park capital of the world get pretty pricey during the main UK holidaying seasons of high summer, Christmas and Easter. Book cheap flights to Orlando from London by planning your break in autumn or late spring, which is when far fewer people will be competing for the most wallet-friendly seats.
There are at direct and indirect London-Orlando flights available from virtually all of the major airports in England's capital. Many leave from Stansted (STN) in north London, which can be reached from Victoria on the Terravision bus for just £10. Flights also depart from Gatwick (LGW), which has direct rail links to Victoria on the Gatwick Express train. You can also fly out from Heathrow (LHR), London's largest airport. To get there, it's just a matter of riding the Piccadilly Line of the Underground straight to the departure halls, or you can splash out extra for the swifter Heathrow Express from Paddington.
Around 9.5 hours in the air separate you from the spine-tingling amusements of Orlando. That’s if you’re taking a direct flight straight to Orlando International (MCO). These are available from charter airlines like Condor and Thomas Cook, but also from the big transatlantic carriers like British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. If you don't mind cranking up the travel time, you could add in a stopover and increase your choice of carriers to the likes of WestJet or Norwegian Air Shuttle.
It's likely you'll already have private transfers sorted with your hotel if you're going to be making straight for the resorts of Walt Disney World and beyond. If you don't, or want to head elsewhere in the Sunshine State, there are other ways to break out from Orlando Airport, such as catching the Lynx Bus on line 11 or 51 to Orange Avenue and Conway – this will cost a mere USD 2. Taxis are also readily available.
This Floridian city isn't hailed as one of the world’s top holiday destinations for nothing. As soon as you step off those cheap flights from London to Orlando, you'll be immersed in the action. It's just a short bus ride to the Boneyard of the Animal Kingdom, the Mad Tea Party of the Magic Kingdom, the swashbuckling pirate ships of Disney Springs – the list goes on. There's also the acclaimed Universal Orlando, where you can unleash your inner movie star, as well as crocodile parks and the wet and wild Aquatica water park.
