Grab a beer and watch the local scene sail by at Latitudes rooftop bar. Knock back shots at Don Jefe’s Tequila parlour and take a breather from the crowds.

Orlando is a man made paradise especially for kids. We have traveled here 3 times. Enjoyed Disney and Universal theme parks. And there are many other attractions if you can find the time for them. Really great resorts at affordable prices.
Wonderful place, I was five times and I will plan return in the future. The theme parks in Orlando are a lot of fun and in the summer the water park options are also a great attraction for the whole family.
It's just magical. We loved it and are already thinking about booking our next trip. Disney is amazing. Universal was good but isn't a patch on the disney parks. Loved the Harty Potter section of Universal. I'd recommend booking to eat inside the parks as they are usually fully booked and unable to take walk ins. The shopping outlets are great and disney springs was a spectacle of shops. Loved, loved, loved Orlando
Do not leave anything of your belongings in the hotel at all you will not get it back sorry as staff didn't even try to make an effort on finding my boots. And there is only one cleaning lady that day so it's obvious that she took for her self
We like the the fact our concerns were promptly taking into consideration by the front desk. In multiple occasions we called the front desk and were served by Max, one who showed professionalism and courtesy. As far as dislike, the fact we satisfied for the most part, we did not focus on the negatives. Even thou, some of the negatives were taking into consideration by Max.
Orlando is a great city to travel solo or with family. This City has plenty of attractions and sites.The best I love about Orlando is the options of shops,lodging accommodations,and attractions.Being the home here in America of Disney you will be welcomed with that experience and it's a must.Driving and finding your way around is simple and efficient.Everything in a great distance and you will find what you need. From Waffle House to Walmart and everything in between.There is something for everyone!
