If You Go . . . Orlando with the family

Getting there: Our choice was Southwest www.southwest.com from TF Green to Orlando nonstop; JetBlue www.jetblue.com and Delta www.delta.com offer nonstop service from Boston.

Getting around: If you skip renting a car, take taxis or Uber for trips not accommodated by on-site ground transportation at the parks. We used Hertz (www.hertz.com) for the daytrip from Orlando to Kennedy Space Center.
