A sunny resort where you can hang out with Mickey Mouse and his friends, swim alongside dolphins, and even explore the depths of space.

A thriving city offering visitors so much to see and do, Orlando has long been a popular destination for families. With its famous theme parks, its beautiful golf courses and its space and science centres all located beneath the golden Florida sun, it’s not hard to see why.

Attracting the young and the young at heart, Orlando is of course home of the Walt Disney World Resort®, one of America’s most popular and best loved spots for holidaymakers. Spreading across an area of over of 120 million square metres, the resort encompasses four theme parks, two water parks and over 20 different hotels. Head for the Magic Kingdom® inside the resort where you can lose yourself in the wonder of Disney and even pay a visit to the park’s life-size version of Cinderella’s castle. Or you can head to Epcot® where you can discover the most cutting-edge inventions and explore what tomorrow’s world might look like.

A short drive east of Orlando, you’ll find SeaWorld and Aquatica, where you can spend some time getting really close to the sea creatures and play around in the water. Get cosy with Florida’s swamp life with a trip to the nearby Gatorland.

Another famous destination popular with visitors to the city is the Kennedy Space Center. See the site from which the first moon landing missions took off. You can even climb aboard a shuttle cabin and get a feel for what it’s like to lift off into outer space at the Space Shuttle Launch Experience.

Close to the city’s downtown district, you’ll find the Orlando Science Center, another destination popular with family visitors. From dinosaurs and local wildlife through to the technology that makes all your electrics work, you’re head with be bursting with knowledge by the time you leave.

If all that discovery and exploration gets a bit too much, pay a visit to the Harry P. Leu Gardens with its 200,000 square metres of greenery offering serene, shaded spots where you can escape the humid summer temperatures. It’s a perfect place to stop off and enjoy the spectacle of Orlando’s afternoon thunderstorms, from a safe, dry spot.

The main reason to visit is to do the theme parks. Not many other attractions close by. But stay somewhere along International Drive even so. The Disney Parks are all way out of town & you need car or catch bus

5/5 - Excellent

You need a car(unless your just doing theme parks the whole time. ). Vast distances between shopping and food/restaurants.
