What are your transportation options ? What are the details of this stay ? Arriving from ? When ? Departing to ? When ?

Im normally all for day trips, but think Aug may be a bit much even for an overnighter. How well do the kids travel ? Ages ? Are they prepared for the heat and humidity ? What about the weather ? Theres a good chance of thunderstorms each day and maybe even a chance of some tropical activity.

If you want to do the Disney parks, go and stay in Orlando.

If you are going to go to Disney then it makes sense to stay in Orlando for that not commute from Miami.

Thank you for your revert, we are skipping Miami and heading straight to Orlando . Kids are 8 & 18 , Apart from Disney world any thing that can be included in the itinerary to be seen in Orlando please advice .

"Thank you for your revert, we are skipping Miami and heading straight to Orlando"

Good idea!

You can see Disney Springs which doesn't cost to get in and you could go to City Walk in the evening.
