Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
When I first visited the Florida Keys, I couldn’t believe how exotic they were, yet all wrapped up in that comforting blanket of American hospitality. The necklace of Keys is just one part of this surprisingly diverse State that comes up trumps for value-for-money honeymoons in the sun. And it’s top of the list if you have kids along for the celebrations too.

Think Florida and you are probably imagining theme parks, jam-packed with kids – perhaps not the place for your honeymoon. But there’s so much more to the Sunshine State.

  • Beach resorts
  • Fly-drive options
  • Weddings

With Miami, the Keys, the Gulf Coast and Gold Coast, there’s no shortage of options for a fabulous beach honeymoon in Florida. Our favourite picks are the South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island and pretty much any of our hotels on Miami’s cool and fashionable South Beach.

In the Florida Keys, the jewel-like chain of islands linked by a single highway, we’ve got a wide range of hotels and resorts, including Cheeca Lodge on Islamorada and the romantic Ocean Key Resort & Spa on Key West.

Make your honeymoon really special by twinning a stay in Florida with another experience – for a thrills and beach combo you can combine the theme parks of Orlando with a luxury resort on Naples beach or combine New York and Cancun, or Fort Lauderdale and a Caribbean cruise.

We can arrange your wedding in Florida, with a wide range of locations from Orlando to the Keys. Or you can enjoy the freedom of the road on a fly-drive honeymoon.

Honeymoons in Orlando, home to the theme parks, are hugely popular. Our top tip is to book a Walt Disney World Resort holiday with a wide choice of on-site hotels and themed resorts plus some outstanding offers on selected dates. These deals include free Disney Dining, a free $200 Disney Gift Card, free nights and more. Check with us for the latest deals.

If you are honeymooning with your kids, you might prefer to stay in one of our three- to five-bedroom Disney Area Executive Homes, each with private swimming pool. They are all within an easy 30-minute drive of the Walt Disney World parks.
