If screaming on a rollercoaster ride, eating sugary-sweet candy, and dancing with animated life-sized characters sounds like your idea of fun, Orlando, Florida, is the place for you. Home to the iconic Walt Disney World® and its dozens of sister attractions, including water parks and zoos, booking an Orlando holiday will keep your adrenaline spiked throughout the entire trip. Even though Mickey and Minnie may be at the top of your Florida holiday itinerary, be sure to check out the other thrills, from the lakes to the Cape (Cape Canaveral, that is).
Flight packages to Orlando often land at the Orlando International Airport (MCO), which is close to most of the major attractions. From the airport, several major highways connect visitors to points of interest. Booking one of Wotif’s car hire options in Orlando will be the easiest way to make your way from the airport to your hotel. Once you've gotten settled, it's time to explore. Aside from the major theme parks like Walt Disney World®, LEGOLAND® Florida, and SeaWorld® Orlando, you can see more colourful characters at Leu Gardens. This 50-acre botanical refuge includes a wide variety of temperate and tropical plants, including cycads, azaleas, camphor trees, and more. If you're looking to hit the links, Orlando has over 25 world-class golf courses to choose from, such as Shingle Creek Golf Club and Bay Hill Club and Lodge. For arts and culture in or near the downtown area, head to the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, CityArts Factory, and Hannibal Square Heritage Centre.
Orlando holiday packages bundle your flight and hotel to help you save money, which you can put to good use shopping. From malls and outlet stores to specialty boutiques, find a sanity bargain amid the amusement parks with some retail therapy. International Drive is the main tourist strip and has a variety of shops dotting its length. The Orlando International Premium Outlets are on the north end of International Drive, while the Mall at Millenia is a short drive south from downtown.
Shopping can work up your appetite. The Orlando area offers restaurants to match most any palate, with flavours ranging from Italian style grub to raw oyster bars. Most of the city’s best-rated restaurants are located in the Lake Windemere neighbourhood, near many hotels and resorts. After a full plate of indulgence, the nightlife in “The City Beautiful” beckons. From live comedy in downtown Orlando, live blues on International Drive, and from night bowling to multimedia theatre, there is no reason why you can't go from sunset to sunrise to take it all in. Orlando offers a perfect balance of family-friendly entertainment and more grown-up options if the kids are asleep.
