From restaurants to shopping and theme parks, Orlando pretty much has it all for an active holiday experience and one which won’t stop you telling your friends about.
Orlando caters for all your dining needs from budget buffet restaurants to luxurious steak houses. You will be able to find the best bargains in the theme park restaurants where you can indulge in anything from waffles and bacon for breakfast to American barbeque picnic food for dinner. If you’re looking for more of an upmarket dining experience then you could visit the likes of Victoria & Albert’s at the Disney compound where their seven course menu will blow you away. A top rated spot by the locals is Christner’s Prime Steak and Lobster House, where the steak is top notch and service is excellent. There are endless places to dine at, so don’t feel under pressure to have them mapped out – some of the best experiences can be found right under your nose.
Like many locations you will find malls with many shops to keep you up-to-date with the latest fashion trends. Orlando doesn’t lack on this, it has two famous malls; The Mall at Millenia and The Florida Mall. You will find high end department stores within these malls where you can be waited on hand and foot.
Something that sets this unique place apart from so many other places is its outlet stores, these stores are fascinating – buying designer items at rock bottom prices. You won’t be too far from an outlet centre here so there’s no excuse not to visit one. Everyone is sure to walk away with a bargain and feel at peace after their spot of retail therapy.
Shopping may not be for everyone, but in Orlando the next activity isn’t far away.
Theme parks here are BIG, BIG, BIG. All ages will definitely find something to keep them entertained here. Some of the major parks are a must see when you get time to explore:
SeaWorld® Orlando has various shows that are a must-see – that’s if you can get to them on time, the Flamingos that wander around your feet in the park may slow you down. The Shamu show offers a surreal experience – there’s not many times where you will see killer whales performing. Apart from the talked about shows, all the animals here are worth a visit and seeing as you’re in Orlando, why not…
Number one place of interest is Universal Studios which is part of Universal Orlando® Resort. It’s so much more than a theme park; it’s an entire universe that will give you an action packed visit, with thrills that will last till the end of your holiday. Stephen Spielberg once said that Universal Studios will give people the chance to discover their own hero, which gives you an idea of what to expect.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is also close to the main park. The easiest way to discover the magic here is with a Fast-Pass which will get you quickly into the main areas. You will hear great reviews on the Kilimanjaro Safari; if you’re lucky enough to get here early the animals are usually a bit more active. It’s been known for Giraffes putting their heads right into the vehicles.
So now is the time to visit Orlando, make your own experiences in this magical place!
