Orlando, Florida is known as being the theme park capital of the world, and is home to some of the world’s most famous theme parks, including Wet ‘n Wild, Universal Orlando Resort, and, of course, Walt Disney World. A trip to Orlando, for many, is not complete without a few days of fun and amusement in Walt Disney World. Brightsun Travel can arrange fantastic holidays to Orlando and Walt Disney World, including flights and a stay at one of the many themed and luxurious hotels just minutes from the big parks. Not just for kids, Walt Disney World features some of the world’s most thrilling rides such as the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom and Expedition Everest – a high speed roller coaster set amidst mountain landscapes – in the Animal Kingdom. It even has a ride that stimulates rocket launches to Mars in the Epcot Park. Walt Disney World houses four parks in total – the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom – that would suit a few days or a week long stay at this exciting Orlando destination. Or why not consider a memorable New Year’s Eve trip to Orlando? The big parks offer some of America’s most impressive fireworks displays on New Year’s Eve, and the park’s nightclubs host elaborate parties to welcome the New Year in style.
Away from its theme parks, Orlando has a lot to offer – zoos and wildlife reserves, a solid urban food scene, museums, art galleries, farms, parks, gardens, and not forgetting the historic Kennedy Space Centre. In downtown Orlando, the Orlando Museum of Art celebrates local artists and holds regular food and music events. If it's wildlife you are interested in, Orlando is perhaps most famously known for its gator farms, and Gatorland is a good option to see hundreds of gators up close. There is also the Central Florida Zoo and the Orlando Wetlands Park wildlife reserve, also home to gators as well as deer, birds and plenty of lakes and woodland to enjoy a picnic or family BBQ.
Whether it's a Disney holiday or something a little more, Brightsun Travel can help you organise fantastic, cheap holidays to Orlando, making the most of what this varied region of Florida has to offer.
