Trips to Orlando almost always include visits to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando. Known for being a very family-friendly destination, Disney World is home to several different theme parks including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and more. No trip to Disney World is complete without seeing the famous Wishes Night time Spectacular, a fireworks extravaganza in Magic Kingdom. If you are looking for more activities, take the family to Universal Orlando, which is home to theme parks and night-time entertainment.
One of the best ways to discover the attractions Orlando has to offer is to buy a Go Orlando Card or an Orlando FlexTicket. These do not cover any of the Disney attractions, but can save you money on entrance fees to other attractions throughout the region.
There are plenty of museums to visit during your trip to Orlando, including the weird and wonderful Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Odditorium, the Orlando Science Centre and the Orlando Museum of Art. However, for a more comprehensive journey through American art and culture, visit the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art.
To take a trip back to 1950s America visit Old Town, a blend of that most American of events, a county fair, with old-fashioned boardwalk entertainment. The Hanibal Square Heritage Center has a slightly more formal feel, and takes a more in-depth look at life in the southern states, including fascinating photographic and audio histories from the beginning of the 20th Century right up to modern times.
