Skyscrapers & Disney Adventure – New York & Orlando

13 days / 12 nights - New York • Orlando

New York : you’ll fall in love the moment you arrive !
When people talk about skylines, we bet that midtown Manhattan—home to the cloud-piercing spires of the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings—is what they’re imagining. And beside that, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art (better known as MoMA), are more reason why you’ll find this an exciting experience.

Once a quiet farming town, Orlando now welcomes more visitors than any other place in the state. The reason, of course, is Walt Disney World, which, along with Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando, and a host of other attractions, of varying degrees of quality, attracts millions of people a year to a previously featureless plot of scrubland.
It’s hard to believe that this area of central Florida was once quiet farmland. Starting with Walt Disney’s visionary theme park, Orlando is now dominated by fantasy resorts, thrill rides, water parks, and every other mind-bending amusement you can imagine.
If you dream of Walt Disney World Resort as a giant amusement park, think again. Disney World is a city in its own right, with four elaborate theme parks, two water parks, two nighttime entertainment districts, golf courses, hotels, over 100 restaurants, its own police force, and an average daily population of well over 100,000 people. This all-encompassing approach provides an all-in-one holiday, luring travelers back year after year. The “happiest place on earth” is also the most visited vacation destination on the planet.

The Magic Kingdom is Disney World’s oldest park and the one closest to Walt Disney’s original vision of a “timeless land of enchantment”. It’s perfectly calibrated to younger children, as it captivates with elaborate design and whimsical “imagineering” rather than fast-paced special effects.

Disney World’s second park, Epcot, is modeled on a World’s Fair. A huge silver golf-ball structure anchors Future World, the first of its two main areas. The second zone is the World Showcase, a whistle-stop tour through 11 pavilions themed for different countries, from Mexico to China.

The third park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, combines some of Disney’s best rides with a behind-the-scenes look at movie-making. A 12-story sorcerer’s hat towers above the park, ushering visitors into attractions based on popular live-action movies and TV shows.

Even after all the animated creatures and imaginary critters, you can still be wowed by real wildlife at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels that pop up between these various parks and attractions accords visitors some special privileges in addition to the convenient location. Best of all is that hotel guests are eligible for the Extra Magic Hours – an extra hour, before or after the standard public entry times, or access to the parks.

Day 1 – Hello Big Apple! Welcome to the USA!
At your arrival to JFK Airport, after custom formalities, transfer to your hotel in Manhattan.
You will dedicate these next 7 days to New York City & around. New York is the world’s ultimate skyscraper city. Already at the end of the 19th century, the limited space on Manhattan caused developers to build ever taller towers. During the course of the 20th century, no less than 8 different skyscrapers in New York held the title of the world’s tallest building. Such a long domination resulted in large number of truly historical buildings, with a great variety in architectural styles. Overnight in New York.

Itinerary will be adjusted according to your flight schedule

Day 2 – Midtown Manhattan & Central Park
Today your newyorker truly experience starts early in the morning. Whatever you decide to discover the Big Apple by yourself, or in one guided tour, the experinece will be up to your expectations.
Midtown is the heart of Manhattan, packed with architectural landmarks, the city’s most popular retail shopping and several of its top museums great for children: Children’s Museum of Manhattan, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

If the children are still up for some more activities, Hudson River Park at Pier 25 is right next to the corner. Overnight in New York.

Day 4 – On the top of Empire State Building!
Kids love to see the views from the Empire State Building! This visit requiers at least 2 hours, due to the the security reasons and the line from the elevator and very few of the children love waiting in lines, so bring along some entertaiment. Grand Cental is a must, if your kids love watching trains pull into and out of the station and maybe they’ll want to test the acoustics of the Whispering Gallery. Also, since you’re in the neighborhood,  Rockefeller Center, Sony Wonder Technology Lab and Central Park Zoo are also on the top activities for your children during your visit in Manhattan.
With its blinking marquees and Jumbotron screens, Times Square provides the quintessential New York setting. Even if It’s not typically associated with child-friendly attractions, there are many Times Square sites for children to enjoy, from hands-on museums to large candy and toy stores, like Toys R Us – where kids can ride on a Ferris wheel, see a life-size T-Rex model, walk through Barbie’s house and test out an assortment of the store’s products in addition to participating in periodic special events. Overnight in New York.

Day 5 – Bronx Zoo Wildlife
You could try for today a long visit at Bronx Zoo Wildlife. Aquariums and zoos are a wonderful place for kids to learn, and many provide educational opportunities for young visitors. Although learning is the aim, kids will also take away the memory of coming nose to nose with a toothy shark, a giant giraffe, or some fanciful creature that will delight and awe. It’s always good to bring a camera; you never know when a priceless moment of discovery may occur.
Back to Manhattan, in the middle of New York’s Broadway district, you can find some child-friendly theater productions such us: “The Lion King,” “Mary Poppins” and “The Gazillion Bubble Show.”

We strongly recommend to purchase your ticket in advance.
Or, you can visit Washington DC, a Day Trip from New York (optional). Overnight in New York.
