We knew our first ever Land Ahoy city had to be someplace extra special so our choice was easy: Orlando. This city is home to more than a dozen theme parks. Chief among its claims to fame is Walt Disney World, comprised of parks like the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, as well as water parks. Another major destination, Universal Orlando, offers Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter straddling both. Temps average about 80 degrees year round, has beautiful water, beautiful landscape, beautiful sunsets. Our choice was right.

Worry Free Cancellation:

On behalf of the entire Stitchin’ Heaven family, we want to ensure you that your safety and health remain a top priority to us. We know that booking a vacation during this time of travel restrictions and general uncertainty can feel risky. To help alleviate those concerns, we have adopted a new worry free cancellation policy. If you need to, you can cancel your Land Ahoy Trip and receive a full refund up to 90 days before your scheduled trip.
