Best Theme Park Breaks

Theme parks are a classic day out destination with the kids, whether you have tots or teens or something in-between. But to really make the most of the bigger parks and to extend the fun into the evening with dinner and sometimes live entertainment, it's great to stay a night or two and make a short break of it. 

And you're going abroad, whether it's as near as Paris or as far as Orlando, you'll definitely need to book a hotel or apartment. 

We've handpicked the cream of the theme park breaks in the UK and abroad, whether you just want somewhere to lay your head before or after heading for the rides, or whether you're into a full-on experience include the likes of themed rooms, character breakfasts and on-site waterparks. Our recommendations include something for all budgets, but whichever you choose you can be sure of non-stop fun and a warm welcome.
