Orlando, Florida is home to the best tourist attractions in the world. Walt Disney World is actually made up of four different theme parks and two water parks covering an area of over 25,000 acres! It is huge! The parks are the famous, Magic Kingdom – home to Mickey Mouse, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

When you have done Disney, there are the action-packed rides that Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure have to offer. The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman at Islands of Adventure is a breathtaking 3D ride.

A visit to Orlando would not be complete without a trip to SeaWorld, home to Shamu, an enormous killer whale. The Clyde and Seymour show is really funny with the animal actors, a Sea Lion, and otter, amusing thousands of people several times a day. The penguin enclosure is a real experience as they are all in the snow and get to watch you travel on by on a moving walkway.

Anheuser-Busch owns SeaWorld, so don’t forget to pick up a Budweiser, Miller Lite, on the house. The hospitality suite is marked on the park map!

You might be lucky enough to watch a launch from the Kenedy Space Center. If not it is still an exciting place to visit, about an hour’s drive from Orlando on Florida’s East Coast. While over there you might like to check out Cocoa Beach and jump the big Atlantic rollers!

We will come to know that the best restaurants in Orlando are the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes, Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort, The Peabody Orlando, Universal’s Hard Rock Hotel and Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center. You should not miss this chance and opportunity and grab these hotels right away. You will see a change as compared to the other hotels and restaurants.

For some more unusual Orlando attractions, visit Wonderworks on International Drive. This interactive place with virtual earthquake and twister experiences is a great place to spend a couple of hours, particularly if there is a tropical shower. Also, Ripley’s Believe it Or Not is a really great place to go, with a weird and wonderful collection of exhibits and things to do.

On a nice hot day head off to Wet n’ Wild and go crazy on the slides or try Aquatica by SeaWorld (literally next door to SeaWorld ) where wildlife meets wild slides. Take the dolphin plunge and rocket through the dolphin pool. To swim with dolphins you need to go to Discovery Cove, which is part of SeaWorld.
