FloridaBaby.co.uk : a Brand new Website for Families Travelling with Children and Babies to Florida

Aug 25, 2010, 04:30 ET from Travel City Direct

CRAWLEY, England, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Today sees the launch of a brand new website specifically designed to answer the many questions posed by parents planning holidays to Walt Disney World with babies and toddlers.  

FloridaBaby.co.uk has been developed by Travel City Direct, the Florida family holiday specialists, and contains hints and tips on travelling with children, an interactive customer forum, and seven entertaining information videos.  These videos feature interviews with experts filmed in the UK and Orlando, and take you through the whole process from packing your bags, the airport experience, the flight, car rental, and having fun at the theme parks with young children and babies.

The site is also introduced with a three minute comedy about Travel City Direct's own 'Florida baby', Max, and his family travelling to Orlando, filmed from his perspective, in a 'Look Who's Talking' style.  It was directed by one of London's hottest young filmmakers, Robert Hindle.

The videos and the site seek to answer questions such as 'Can you buy nappies on International Drive?', 'Is it safe to take my baby out in the Orlando sunshine', 'Can I buy baby food at the Magic Kingdom?' and 'What sort of car seat should I book for my two year old?' – all of which are real life queries posted by parents on the many online message boards that currently exist.

Although the site focuses on holidays to Florida from the UK, much of the advice and information will be useful for anyone flying with children and babies.  

Visit the site and watch the videos at www.floridababy.co.uk.  

Travel City Direct specialises in great value holidays to Orlando.  Prices start from 539 pounds per person, including return scheduled flights, resort transfers and fourteen nights at the Champions World Resort in Kissimmee.  Price based on two adults and two children sharing on a room only basis for departures between 10 Jan and 11 Feb 2011.  Call 0844 557 6965 or book online at www.travelcitydirect.com .
