Orlando-Walt Disney World | The City Beautiful | The Theme Park Capital of the World | Orlando Theme Park

Go travel, go vagabonding and break your monotonous routine. Orlando is the most visited tourist destination in the world. Located in Central Florida, it is a home to more than dozen theme parks. The Walt Disney World comprising parks like the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, as well as water parks is a globally famous theme park. Another major destination, Universal Orlando, offers Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter straddling both. The Discovery Cove is another amazing place you shouldn’t miss; here you will love the dolphin swim and wish you were in the water longer to swim with stingrays and tropical fish. 

The City of Orlando is nicknamed "The City Beautiful," and is also known as "The Theme Park Capital of the World". Orlando’s symbol is the fountain at Lake Eola; in 2014 its tourist attractions and events drew more than 62 million visitors. Orlando's famous attractions form the backbone of its tourism industry. Walt Disney World, located approximately 21 miles (34 km) southwest of Downtown Orlando in Bay Lake, was founded by the Walt Disney Company in 1971. Universal Orlando Resort, opened in 1999 as a major expansion of Universal Studios Florida. With the exception of Walt Disney World, most major attractions are located along International Drive.

Fine dine and nightlife in Orlando can be memorable; at Titanic the Artifact Exhibition Dinner Gala, experience the history and mystery of the great tragedy with this 3-hour experience. Or experience the heart of gospel on a full-day Orlando city tour including a southern brunch and live performance at the House of Blues. The city is also one of the busiest in America for conferences and conventions; the Orange County Convention Center is the second-largest convention facility in the United States. The Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the thirteenth-busiest airport in the United States and the 29th-busiest in the world.
