Orlando is a city jam-packed with theme parks and activities that will keep you entertained all day long. A visit to Disney’s Magic Kingdom is a must for most holidaymakers. Universal Studios has thrilling, innovative rides, the opportunity to visit production studios and film sets and now features the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The latest Universal theme park, Volcano Bay is due to open in Orlando in early summer 2017. SeaWorld is also a favourite with visitors young and old.
A family holiday to Orlando in 2017 has more to offer than theme parks. The Kennedy Space Centre and Florida Everglades are within easy reach and make an ideal daytrip.
