Walt Disney World
A visit to The Happiest Place On Earth is usually at the top of the list for families and Disney fans of all ages. There is endless fun to be had between the four parks, from parades down the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, USA to rides, shows, and character encounters throughout each of the parks. “Climb” Mount Kilimanjaro at Animal Kingdom, celebrate movie history at Hollywood Studios, or take a tour around the world without leaving the park at Epcot. You can make it the focus of your trip or spend a single day at your favorite park.
Private Helicopter Tour
Take to the skies over the Orlando theme parks. Go up, up, and away for a unique view of the places you’ve come to see and have fun at during your stay. You’ll get a bird’s eye view of your favorite attractions on a 25-minute narrated flight. Learn about the area’s history and development from empty land to bustling parks and tourist destinations while you capture beautiful photos and soak up the sights as you pass by places like Old Town, Sea World, Disney Springs, Epcot, and many more.
Another top venue to visit on your Orlando respite, SeaWorld is packed full of aquatic exhibits and shows. Learn about their marine animal rescue and rehabilitation programs, or even get close-up private encounters with whales, penguins, dolphins, and more. If that’s not enough, head over to Sea Life Orlando for more undersea adventures. Get to know sea creatures from the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans, and even get up close to some. The aquarium has over 5,000 crustaceans, fish, and marine mammals in over 30 exhibits where you can observe a giant octopus, sharks, stingrays, and more as you travel through a unique 360-degree underwater tunnel.
Madame Tussauds Orlando
Located on International Drive with many other must-see attractions, Madame Tussauds wax museum features life size and life-like wax models of many of the U.S.’s top actors, sports stars, pop icons, political and historical figures, and others. Each category or group of stars and celebrities has its own room, and the figures are organized and placed in such a way that begs for fun and silly photos with you and your friends posed in the shot, too. Want to see yourself carved in wax? It will take three to four months for the professional team of artists and sculptors to perfect your image using over 200 different body measurements to capture everything that’s unique about you.
Pack your theme park visiting schedule with a stop at another popular destination, Universal Studios. Step into the fun and whimsy of some of your favorite movies, shows, and characters. SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends, The Simpsons, Despicable Me, Transformers, and many more punctuate rides, shows, and other attractions to keep you busy all day.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
Experience the weird and fascinating! You’ll see artifacts and displays that will have you saying, “I don’t believe it!” The strange collection of oddities like a shrunken human head, odd fossilized creatures, and many other pieces from world traveler Robert Ripley’s crazy collection. Another unbelievable exhibit is centers around Mr. Ripley himself at the height of his career when he averaged 3,000 letters a day for over 20 years, receiving more mail than any other individual in history to that point.
