    For any child, this is a must! Meet characters, go on rides and so much more all at once. Even for adults, this is a fun vacation spot. As they say, magical!

    Great fun to go there, but long wait times to attractions are a hassle, especially when it is soaking hot.

    Such an amazing place. Wonderful and beautiful at that. Everything is almost walking distances. Walt Disney was such an amazing adventure. Kids really enjoyed themselves.

    This is a city that has something for everybody. It is probably the number one vacation destination in the USA if not the world. The amount of attractions and the availability of hotels, restaurants and shopping areas help make this a magical place.

    Epcot is one of the best parks that has something for everyone. Whether you enjoy the rides, shows, shopping, and/or the food, you'll have something new to explore from places all around the world!!

    If you like Disney, love Disney, grew up watching Disney movies, have ever heard of Disney, or just know what Disney is, you need to go to Walt Disney World. It's the grandchild of the original Happiest Place on Earth, and offers enough rides, kingdoms, and experiences to keep an entire family happy for a week. Plus, hotels nearby are pretty cheap and you can get great deals on the park tickets at their front desks.

    If you have kids, a visit to Disney is a must. The parks are well worth the cost of admission and the memories will stay with you long after you arrive home. Great vacation for kids and the kids at heart!

    Walt Disney World is the top attraction for anyone visiting Orlando and Kissimmee and the surrounding towns. With Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom Parks along with Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon and Downtown Disney there is something for everyone in your group, young or old. One day is never enough and my family still goes back almost every year.

    It's Disney World! It's amazing! Everything is expertly crafted down to the last detail. It's a total fantasy land! And there is something for everyone. Disney knows that adults want to have fun too. I've been several times through childhood and into my teens. It's always magical!

    Disney World is the anchor of this tourist mecca which is the quintessential example of urban sprawl -- complete with miles of strip malls and every form of chain restaurant to be found in America. There are some wonderful cultural attractions but you'll have to work hard and spend a lot of time in a car to find them. Disney and the theme parks will appeal to families with children but Orlando is Americana in its purest form -- guns, God, bigotry and a heck of a lot of highways and billboards.

    Lock yourself up at the theme parks and enjoy them for what they are or do your research and head into Downtown Orlando and Winter Park to seek out this town's mom and pop treasures.

    If you want theme parks galore in Florida, then Orlando is the inevitable choice. Everything is quite spread out, so you're going to need to drive or rent a car when you fly into Orlando's airport. Everything - and I mean everything - is expensive here, and built-up like any other US city. If you want a more natural escape that's still kid-friendly, head south to Everglades National Park instead.

    Orlando is a town that lives for theme parks, and whether it's the Disney flagship, Universal Studios, or Six Flags Islands of Adventure, it's possibly the best city in the world to enjoy a movie-themed rollercoaster or a ludicrously overpriced hot dog. And while the world of Mickey and the Hulk might seem kiddieish, Orlando also has enough excellent dining and clubbing opportunities to entertain adults as well.

    Walt Disney World is every kid's dream vacation (at least it was for me). I think as a child, it's a terrific place to go because of the amusement rides and eye catching sights. The Epcot Center covers major countries throughout the world, and there's the famous castle. As an adult though, it is a bit cheesy.

    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.

    OK here it goes. I grew up here and when Disney first came to town it was magical for sure. went every year, had kids and took them every Christmas for the special production and parade....HOWEVER is is way over priced now. The food is nothing special. Foodies should go to Epcot for that. I really don't know how families afford this. But it is special for at least once........Now Orlando is OK not much to do there. Go to the beaches or Seaworld...more for the money

    The Happiest Place on My Earth! 15 trips and counting. Give yourself at least one full day in each park, with stops at a Water Park or Downtown Disney for dinner, shopping and night life.

    Only reason it gets three stars instead of two stars is that I know that this place is good to visit for some people... It's just not my taste. Too corporate and plastic for me. It's just too much. Nothing really authentic about this place, but if you have kids and aren't looking for something different then it could be just what you're looking for.

    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.

Description

The area surrounding Orlando and Walt Disney World is one of the world's great centers of entertainment. You could spend a month here and still not see and do everything. Of course there's the Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center and Disney's Hollywood Studios, but there's also a zoo, two water parks, several shopping districts, a nightlife island, five golf courses and two dozen themed resorts. And that's just in the Disney family. While the Disney resorts are all in Lake Buena Vista, about 20 miles southwest of Orlando proper, the entire area is filled with family-centered fun. Add to the mix Universal Orlando Resort, Sea World and a host of museums (including the Morse Museum in Winter Park, with the world's most comprehensive collection of Tiffany glass) and it's easy to see why almost 50 million people a year visit Orlando.
