You’ll never be short on things to do when you visit Orlando – in fact, you may find that you can’t fit in everything you want to see and do during your holiday to this city. To help you choose which attractions to visit, Travelup offers some more information about the most popular spots in Orlando.
You can’t mention Orlando without discussing the Disney World Resort; although the city has plenty to offer aside from this, it remains one of the most well loved attractions here, with many Travelup reviews citing this resort as their favourite attraction in Orlando. The resort is made up of four theme parks, including Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot Centre and Magic Kingdom.
You can visit each one individually, or alternatively a ‘hopper’ pass can be purchased, so that you can take a trip around each one. Thrills and spills, classic children’s film characters and an abundance of places to dine make this a great place for a day, or even a week of fun.
Another option for theme park enthusiasts is Universal Orlando – this is made up of two different parks, namely Universal Studios Florida, and Universal Islands of Adventure. Here, Travelup explains, adults and children alike can experience their favourite cartoons, comic books, movies and stories in the form of cutting edge thrill rides and live shows.
SeaWorld Orland is a must for anyone who loves water rides and non-stop action; this attraction is home to shows, featuring whales and various other aquatic creatures, as well as fireworks, fountains and plenty of gravity defying rides. Another nature-based attraction which is popular with tourists is Discovery Cove, which allows visitors to get a glimpse of life in the tropics. You can relax on the beach snorkel with stingrays and fish, swim with the dolphins or feed tropical birds.
For anyone interested in reptiles, Travelup says that a trip to Orlando would not be complete without a visit to ‘Gatorland’, home to thousands upon thousands of crocodiles and alligators. You can meet the creatures face to face at the petting zoo, take in a show or view the breeding marsh.
