What to do after Disney World

A compact and busy city that’s perfect for indulging your inner child, Orlando offers adventure and fun for all the family – and all with a gorgeous tropical climate.

Best known for its world class theme parks, magnificent golf courses and awe-inspiring Kennedy Space Centre, Orlando is rightfully considered one of America’s most popular tourist destinations.

Orlando is known throughout the world as the home of theme parks. The biggest and most famous of them all is – of course – the Walt Disney World® Resort. It is no exaggeration to say that children all over the world dream of visiting this resort – spread over an incredible 25,000 acres, the resort includes no less than four exhilarating theme parks, two thrilling water parks and more than 20 hotels to suit every type of guest and budget.

Perhaps the most famous of all the resort’s parks is the Magic Kingdom, towered over by a life-size replica of Cinderella’s iconic castle but Disney World is much more than just traditional Disney fun. The highly interactive Epcot is the second park at the resort dedicated to technology and invention, whilst Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom take the Disney experience in new and exciting directions. Then second big hitter in the area is the world famous Universal Studios Orlando with rides based on some of the biggest film franchises out there, such as Harry Potter and Jurassic Park.

If Disney and theme parks isn’t for you, there’s still plenty to enjoy in Orlando. Located just 20 minutes East is SeaWorld, the perfect place to spend a day learning about some of the world’s most exciting sea creatures – but don’t forget your bathing suit, as there’s plenty of water rides to thrill you too. Whilst out east, don’t forget to stop in at Gatorland to find out more about Florida’s fascinating native swamp-dwellers! If you really like the water, maybe meet dolphins, swim with tropical fish or just chill out by the water and enjoy the all-you-can-eat snacks and drinks at Discovery Cove.

A trip to Orlando would not be complete without visiting the Kennedy Space Centre. Home to some of mankind’s most extraordinary achievements, visiting the centre is an incredible opportunity to tour the launch areas and discover where the moon landings began – or simply to feel if for yourself at the Space Shuttle Launch Experience, not for the faint of heart. For more science fun, the Orlando Science Centre in Downtown offers plenty of interactive family fun considering such subjects as dinosaurs and electricity.

Speaking of electricity, Orlando is also famous for its incredible afternoon thunderstorms – why not head to Harry P. Leu Gardens and enjoy the natural light show amongst 50 acres of magnificent sculpted lawns and oak trees?
