But we’ll go a little further – these are the experience you won’t want to miss when you visit the theme parks:
- Feed the giraffes at Busch Gardens
- Dine with Shamu the Orca at Sea World
- Swim with dolphins in Orlando or walk underwater at Discovery Cove
- Join your favourite Disney characters on a Wild West adventure with the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show at Disney World

Who knows - you might be surprised to find that you enjoy the theme parks even more after a bit of “quiet time” away from them.
Kennedy Space Centre
Anyone who ever wanted to be an astronaut will be wowed by the Kennedy Space Center, Nasa’s Launch Facility in Orlando, and kids can fulfil their dreams of becoming a soccer star at Sunny Soccer Day Camps.
Want to get out and explore the area?

While a day in the parks can be tiring to say the least, it’s worth summoning some extra energy for a few of Florida’s famous evening shows!
Travel back in time with Medieval Times Orlando
The Medieval Times Dinner Show Orlando will take you right into the age of chivalry. Expect jousting, fierce sword fights and horseback fights that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
