Best theme parks in Florida to visit in 2024

Simon Calder’s Travel

If it’s thrills and spills you’re after, Florida is the place to visit.

It’s home to Disney World’s orignal theme park, The Magic Kingdom, which boosts the highest yearly attendance of any theme park on the planet. Around 17 million visitors attended to meet Disney characters and brave the roller coasters in 2022.

But The Magic Kingdom is just one of many theme parks in the Sunshine State, with other larger than life resorts competing to get your adrenalin pumping and awaken a childlike sense of awe. That’s why it’s a good idea to do your research in advance of a trip to Florida, as you might not have time to fit them all in – unless, that is, you want to spend every day of your holiday strapped into a roller coaster, going around the twist. If you want to also see the Florida Keys, Florida national parks or some of the state’s best beaches, you’ll need to be choosy.

Here’s our guide to the best Florida theme parks, and what each offers, so you can pick your favorites and book in advance to avoid disappointment. The parks can get very popular, so it’s a good idea to book tickets as far ahead as you can.

Experience Main Street, U.S.A., Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, and Adventureland, with different rides and experiences in each.

Affiliated with Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, a cost-effective way of seeing them all is to book a 7-day Magic Ticket on the official Disney Parks website (£499). Or you could get individual day tickets through third-party sites.
