Embark on the ride of your life with a visit to Orlando, home to theme parks to suit every one of you. Located in the central region of Florida, Orlando was always a popular family destination but once Mickey made it his home with the opening of Walt Disney World® in 1971, it became the must-visit place for theme park fans.
Today you won’t just find Disney here, there’s SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Universal Orlando® Resort, Magic Kingdom and much more, providing you with a non-stop shop for thrills, fun and an endless entertainment. And once you’ve screamed enough for one day, there’s still plenty to do. You’ll discover areas which show off the diversity of Orlando. Take your pick from a range of restaurants from casual dining to haute cuisine. Shop in speciality shops or find the pulse of Orlando’s nightlife as you enjoy live entertainment and music.
Walt Disney himself said “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible” and that’s just what Orlando has achieved, taking your wildest dreams and made them become a reality.
