Fireworks light up the sky above the glowing towers of the Disney’s castle and children squeal with delight as their favourite characters wave at them from passing floats. Close by, Harry Potter and Voldemort are locked in a duel, while dinosaurs roam tracts of rainforest. The moment you arrive in Orlando, you are swept up in its magic. There is seemingly a theme park or attraction for everyone, whether you’re a morbid CSI fan or an animal-lover.
Orlando is the city with the most hotels in the United States.
But even away from the parks, Orlando is a fun place to visit. Find yourself skimming across swamps on an airboat where alligators patrol the murky depths. Get suited up with a jetpack and launch from the sea into the air – yes, even human flight is possible here.
