For all emergencies dial 911.

If you break down while driving on a major highway and require assistance dial *FHP (*347) for the Florida Highway Patrol.


Try to carry a small first aid kit with you to treat minor abrasions and insect bites/stings, indigestion and headaches

It's HOT here so wear a wide-brimmed hat, light clothes and strong sunscreen

Carry water with you and drink about 15-20 ounces every 10-20 minutes when out in the sun

Ensure you are covered by insurance as medical treatment is expensive

Before swimming at a beach, look for warning signs about the tides and/or sharks

Good Advice for Visitors to Orlando


Follow all the general procedures for ensuring your safety as you would at home

If possible, always carry:

photo ID (passport, driving license etc.)

address and phone number of your hotel

a map and a cell phone

After arriving at your hotel, locate the nearest emergency exit(s) to your room

Make sure everyone in your party knows each other's plans inc. the time they intend to return to the hotel

If your plans change, let the rest of your party know or leave a message for them at your hotel

Never leave drinks unattended in bars

Don't accept drinks, rides or offers of a place to stay from people you just met

Where appropriate, try to respect local customs

Tipping in restaurants and bars etc. is the norm here: that polite person serving you is earning minimum wage and relies on tips to make a decent living. The convention is to tip about 15-20% of the total bill


Ensure your travel documents, passports and tickets are easily accessible and secure

Avoid alcohol before and during flights: alcohol affects people much faster at high altitude

Only one piece of hand luggage and one personal item (purse, laptop etc.) will be allowed

No knives or knifelike items in hand luggage: the term "knifelike items" includes every kind of cutting instrument, including carpet knives, box cutters and other folding or retractable blades, regardless of blade length or composition

Items such as straight razors, scissors, metal nail files, and lighters must be checked and are not permitted in the cabin

Do not carry WRAPPED gifts in hand luggage: unidentifiable items will be opened and thoroughly searched

Always comply with requests from airport and aircraft staff especially security staff

DO NOT make jokes about carrying weapons, being a terrorist etc.


Always carry a map with you

Avoid roadside rest (picnic) areas, especially at night.

SLOW DOWN: unfamiliar roads with different road markings and signs to those you are used to require more thinking time.

Never drink and drive: if found to be driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs you WILL be arrested.

If stopped by a State Trooper or Police Officer:

park off the road if possible

switch off your engine and open your window

place your hands on the steering wheel so that they are clearly visible to the officer. Listen carefully to the officer and comply with ANY request he makes (failure to do so is an offence and you will be arrested for impeding an investigation).

Keep a supply of small change in the car and be ready to slow down and stop at toll booths.


Ticket care

Keep your theme park tickets in a safe (preferably waterproof) place.

Avoid just putting them in your pocket as a sudden tropical storm will soak you and your tickets in seconds.

Take extra care with any ticket which has a magnetic strip on the back. These tickets are non-refundable under any circumstances.

If you encounter any of the local wildlife DON'T feed it (especially if it's a 'gator) unless you are in a zoo/theme park and have permission to do so.

If you get caught in a storm, take shelter in the nearest building (NEVER shelter under a tree) as being struck by lightning can put a serious crimp in your day.
