Inside Sue and Noel Radford’s bumper Florida holiday, from their swanky villa to how they herd 21 kids on Disney rides

TAKING your kids on holiday is never easy, so spare a thought for parents-of-22 Noel and Sue Radford.

The Lancashire-based family are currently enjoying a bumper family holiday to Florida, complete with trips to Disney and Universal Studios.

The Radfords, who are Britain’s biggest family, have been documenting the fun-filled break for their fans and recently uploaded a video to YouTube of their time so far.

Swanky villa

With 22 kids, it can be hard to find accommodation for the whole family on holiday.

Noel and Sue revealed they have hired a holiday villa for their bumper brood during their Orlando break, which comes complete with a pool and pool table.

And perfect for the youngsters, the villa is decorated in an ocean theme, with sharks and dolphins painted on the walls.

The villa has at least nine bedrooms, with bunk beds and numerous beds in each.

Vans to hire

When you have a large family, it can be hard to transport everyone during trips, so Sue and Noel have had to both hire vehicles in Florida.

Noel said in their vlog: “We’ve got a 15-seating minibus, which Sue is driving.

“And then over here we thought we’d hire a pick-up truck so we could just chuck all the cases in the back.”

In total, 15 of the family made the trip – 13 kids plus the parents – with some of the older Radfords staying in the UK.

Theme parks galore

The family have thrown themselves into Orlando life, including visiting Disney and Universal theme parks.

They even managed to gather everyone together for a group picture at Magic Kingdom.

It was a long old day for the family as 13 hours after her first picture teasing where they were off to, Sue posted a video of the evening fireworks display over Cinderella's iconic castle.

Sue also detailed how she keeps the kids entertained all day.

Dad Noel could be seen carrying an enormous backpack as the family entered the park, presumably stuffed to the brim with snacks and toys.

She previously joked that she has to check in all of her kids at theme parks using a clipboard of names.

Matching T-shirts

In order to get into the spirit of the holiday, Sue revealed she had bought her kids a new wardrobe themed on Disney.

Before they left, she stocked up on some Minnie Mouse tops from Sainsbury’s.

But they also visited the gift shop in Florida, dressing the girls in matching pink Disney tees and all wearing sparkly Minnie Mouse ears.

And Noel didn’t escape either, as Sue revealed that she bought her husband Noel a t-shirt with the Cat in the Hat on the front.

Washing clothes during the trip

Sue helps to tackle holiday washing by doing it during the trip.

She said in her video: “We are just getting ready to head out, I just put a wash on, just put the tumble dryer on.”

Thankfully their holiday villa has a big utility room to help with the laundry.

Homemade food

To save money buying food out at restaurants, Sue revealed they often cook homemade food on holidays.

After a day of exploring the Florida parks, the mum showed her kids playing a game of pool, while she tucked into a bag of cheese popcorn. 

And the food wasn’t over there, as Noel got the huge barbecue going, which Sue described as “perfect”. 

Sue, 46, and Noel, 51, are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 28, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 23, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 13, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, one.

Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.

The family famously doesn’t rely on benefits and is supported by their pie shop business. 

The Radfords, who live in a 10-bed former care home, often show off their millionaire lifestyle on Instagram.
