With this much fun packed into one area, Orlando is essentially the unofficial theme park capital of the world, with Walt Disney World® Resort’s mix of storybook splendor and pop-culture adventure; Universal Orlando® Resort’s on-screen experiences; plus LEGOLAND® and SeaWorld®.
t The colorful parade – a daily event at Disney’s Magic Kingdom®
If you’re only focused on the rides, you’ll end up missing half the fun at Florida’s theme parks! Expect Broadway-style musicals with rousing scores throughout the parks, especially in Orlando where film and cartoon characters come alive. Both Walt Disney World® Resort and Universal Orlando Resort™ come alive after dark, when The Nighttime Lights At Hogwarts™ Castle bring magical revelry to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, and fireworks soar atop the Cinderella Castle during Happily Ever After in Disney’s Magic Kingdom®.
Brave the eye-popping inversions of The Incredible Hulk Coaster® in Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ and the blood-curdling drop of the The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®. The fastest coaster is SeaWorld® Orlando’s Mako, but rides like Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™ at Universal Studios Florida™ guarantee something for every type of adrenaline junkie.
See blockbusters come to life with special effects shows, ground-breaking attractions and entire themed lands to explore. Walk below the floating mountains of Avatar’s otherworldly Pandora in Disney’s Animal Kingdom ®, explore the thrills of Jurassic Park® at Universal’s Island of Adventures™, or board the Hogwarts Express™ for a journey to the magical village of Hogsmeade™.
