Without question one of the most visited cities in America is Orlando Florida. Families flock to the city throughout the year for vacation. Why do families choose Orlando?
The obvious reason is that Orlando is home to Walt Disney World. It’s a one-stop fun filled vacation for everyone in the family. With four theme parks, two water parks, and resort hotels ranging in value to deluxe near each theme park, plus Downtown Disney, Disney alone would keep a family busy for much longer than a week with everything it has to see and do. Keep an eye out, or just be on my mailing list for specials year around for Disney destinations. But there’s more to Orlando than the magical world of Disney.
Universal Studios has two fun parks, with the all new Transformers Ride and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Islands of Adventure, plus the City Walk full of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment like the Blue Man Group. It has three on-site resort hotels within walking distance of the parks, and with its fourth on-site resort hotel, The Cabana Bay-a moderate/value resort, opening in March 2014 Universal brings more families to this destination. Universal Studios also has several partner hotels ranging from value to luxury where guests can receive some Universal Benefits:
There is more to enjoy in Orlando; let’s look at Sea World, Aquatica and Discovery Cove.
Sea World is as the name suggests a park full of sea life fun, roller coaster and entertainment. Dolphin shows, whales, walruses, sea lions, rides, and exhibits. Aquatica is Sea World’s water park full of water rides and animal attractions. Part of the Sea World family is Busch Gardens Tampa which you can also purchase tickets for Busch Gardens in a Sea World package. Sea World will also provide transportation to Busch Gardens Tampa.
Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive day resort with a thirty minute dolphin encounter for each member of the family. All food and beverages are included at Discovery Cove, so families can pay one price and spend the entire day in a tropical-like environment complete with a beach & snorkeling. Not to worry about the crowds because Discovery Cove only allows a specific number of guests in the park each day. With the park admission to Discovery Cove comes with a 14 day consecutive admissions ticket to Sea World and Aquatica. Thus, you receive three park admissions for one price.
Orlando, Florida also offers sunny year round weather and for folks living on the eastern parts of the US its easy travel to Orlando with non-stop flights or within driving distance. These are just a few of the reasons many families choose Orlando as their vacation destination.
