Orlando

Manta at SeaWorld Orlando

The most famous resident of this central Florida city is Mickey Mouse, the cartoon creation of animated movie tycoon, Walt Disney, whose vision has turned Orlando, and the adjacent Lake Buena Vista and Kissimee areas, into the world's busiest, biggest and best-known concentrated tourist Mecca. Disney bought up land in the area with the aim of establishing his dream theme park back in the 1960s. He died before the first park, the Magic Kingdom, officially opened in 1971, but his legacy has taken root and is still growing. Currently the Disney empire in Orlando includes four theme parks, dozens of smaller attractions, thousands of hotel rooms and holiday apartments, hundreds of restaurants and snack bars and even two cruise ships. It is not only the Disney dazzle that draws visitors to Orlando. There are other attractions here too, like Universal Studios and Sea World, all adding to the maelstrom of thrills and pleasure palaces that this city is now renowned for. Just a trip down attraction-rich International Drive is a mind-boggling experience.

Staff Tip

“All the staff have a top tip for Orlando but MY top tip would be visit the parks in the early mornings or late nights. Check with us to see if your park pass includes early entry into the parks or extended opening hours. If you are staying on park property you can be entitled to extras that other visitors mightn’t have access to. This works particularly well during the summer months when mornings and evenings are cooler, freeing up your afternoon to relax by a pool or in a water park!”

Amanda Hynes, Orlando
