Orlando is a world class destination consisting of a myriad of theme parks (DisneyWorld, Universal Studios, Sea World, etal), resorts, shopping (for each and every budget), restaurants, and museums.

You can get miserably lost in New York City but still have a nice time and a pretty skyline in view. Getting lost in Orlando is much scarier. Central Florida is way more spread out than people realize, and you do not want to come here without doing some research. If Orange Blossom Trail sounds like a beautiful place, then do even more research. But it is the happiest place on earth! It’s just surrounded in strip malls, gift shops, and sketchy motels. So come prepared and do it right. Once you’ve done the parks, venture out into some of the other areas – Winter Park, Sanford, Downtown Orlando, Thornton Park. There are lots of beautiful little spots that the locals are dying to show off. We hate to think of you stuck on I-Drive eating chain restaurant takeout, and honestly, we all feel a little bad about it. Come visit the other side of Orlando and we will surely make it up to you.

Downtown Orlando, with its tall and glassed buildings, comes to life especially at night, when locals and visitors fill up the bars, restaurant and clubs around Orange Av. and Church St.

Orlando is very much a tourist town. My time spent there was going to school. There are many fun places to eat and exciting places to visit. I highly recommend Lake Eola park and going to The Social for concert. Downtown Disney is actually in Lake Buena Vista, but is considered part of the Disney experience. Here you'll find some fancy places to eat and some great venues. The House of Blues is here and Cirque de Soleil. The HOB is my favorite medium-sized venue for a concert. It's one of the things I miss most about living in Orlando. It's a great place to visit, but I couldn't live there for too long because it rains more than I would like. If you are thinking of going to Full Sail, I highly recommend it. I had the time of my life there.

A fairly under-appreciated and misunderstood metropolis often overshadowed by the many theme parks surrounding it (e.g., Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld, Aquatica, etc.). It offers a lot to the curious tourist, however, including a Little Vietnam, thriving comedy scene, a beautiful historic district, and a vibrant museum / arts scene.

Christmas time is just awesome. You will have to spend at least one week visiting the theme parks. Always get quick passes. Leave early in the morning and plan to spend the day until closing. The best parks in order for me are Universal studios both parks. Sea world, Epcot, Disney Magic Kingdom, Disney Hollywood studios. There are others but these are my favorites. Also i think its best to stay in one of Universal of Disney s hotels. I had by best experiences for some reason when i stayed in Universal. Oh and plan fro rest time between the theme parks. you cant say do three parks in tree days you will need a vacation after.
