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!

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.

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!

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.
