So you want to go to Disney:

We don’t blame you.  There’s a reason it’s called the happiest place on earth. That being said, Orlando is approximately a 3 1/2 hour drive from where the wedding is located.  So, if you want to go to Disney or Universal, here’s what we recommend:

  1. Make sure to look into all the costs involved with buying tickets for Disney or Universal
  2. Fly into Orlando on 11/7/15 – 11/9/15 (depending on when you want to arrive)
  3. Stay at a Disney Hotel or Universal Hotel, unless you’re comfortable renting a car and driving around Orlando
  4. Enjoy the Disney Parks and/or Universal Studios
  5. Plan to fly from Orlando to PBI or FLL unless you’re comfortable driving your rental car 3 1/2 hours
  6. Arrive in Boca Raton or Delray Beach on Friday 11/6/15 (you don’t want to chance it and miss the wedding…right?)
    1. If you’re in the wedding party, you need to move your time table up a few days to make sure you are available 11/11 – 11/15.
