The Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom

This is where all the magic happens! The Magic Kingdom–one of four theme parks in the Walt Disney World family–is the home of the Cinderella Castle. Designed like a giant wheel, the paths of the spokes lead to the seven different themed areas: Main Street USA, Tomorrowland, Mickey’s Toontown Fair, Fantasyland, Liberty Square, Frontierland, and Adventureland. See your favorite Disney characters, attractions, and behind-the-scenes tours. It is best to go in the off-season.
Do & See

Orlando Science Museum and Dr. Phillips Cinedome

When theme parks just won’t do, check out the educational yet fun alternative: The Orlando Science Center. This huge 5-story building is chock full of exhibits and activities on each level. Don’t miss the Dr. Phillips Cinedome, which is an 8-story mega-screen theatre. The OSC also has a planetarium on the top floor that opens every Friday and Saturday night. The fun Adventures with Clifford exhibit allows children to learn valuable life lessons while everyone's favorite red dog teaches. Also at OSC is the Blue Man Group exhibit, which explores the science of sound waves!
Sea World

Sea World

If the aquatic life is for you, Sea World is a fun day in the sun. The famous whale Shamu does multiple shows a day that children and adults both enjoy. Other shows to see include the Dolphin Horizons show and Clyde & Seamore. Visitors can feed dolphins and stingrays if they are brave enough! Try the Underwater Grill at the Shark Encounter for a good, sit-down meal. Don’t leave the park early–the last ten minutes before closing every night is a fireworks show.
Do & See

Winter Park

Winter Park is a suburb just outside of Orlando and if traveling time permits, it is certainly worth spending a day there. With 26 beautiful public parks, many lakes, and with the downtown shopping and dining, this quaint little town will win you over with its romance and charm. Many people marry and hold special events in this sophisticated city. Winter Park is also home to Rollins College and four different theaters.
Universal's Islands of Adventure

Universal's Islands of Adventure

True thrills only live at one place: Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Pick up your wand from “Ollivanders” and cast spells with “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” where magic glitters on every corner, shop, and ride. Next, swing into action and join “Spider-Man” in his timeless battles against familiar foes on “Marvel Super Hero Island.” But it doesn't end there—you can enjoy rides and adventures with the likes of “Toon Lagoon,” the fearsome dinosaurs of “The Lost Continent,” and the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss!
ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

220 acres of pure, sporting adrenaline awaits visitors at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The complex's facilities are all professionally managed and maintained, hosting thousands of athletic events each year and over 60 sports. You can catch games or training sessions of your favorites teams, or even join in the excitement. Located on the Walt Disney World Resort.
Do & See

Ritz Carlton Golf Club

Golf comes standard in Orlando, with the Ritz Carlton Golf Club certainly raising the bar. Designed by golf legend Greg Norman, the course at Grande Lakes has a diverse array of greens and hazards to challenge and improve your game. The ambiance is unparalleled and the experience cannot be duplicated. Family golf is available: children and adolescents up to age 17 can play for free with each paid adult round.
Epcot

Epcot

Residing in the Walt Disney World Resort Area is the famed Epcot Center. As a beautiful feat of architecture, the Epcot has two features. Future World is a dedication to the innovative and progressive efforts of the human spirit. The World Showcase is a melting pot of culture and foods from across the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, France, Morocco, and Norway. Spanning 300 acres in total, Epcot is a must see for Orlando visitors.
