If you ask any kid from any country what their dream vacation is, it's likely they'll say: Walt Disney World. Families from every corner of the globe come to Orlando each year for that once-in-a-lifetime trip. While Walt Disney World put Orlando on the map in 1971, since then, other major attractions have opened targeting families, from theme parks like SeaWorld, Universal Studios and Legoland to interactive science centers, children's theaters and outdoor adventure parks. Because of these diverse offerings for families and children old and young, Orlando has become the most popular tourism destination in the world. It's the ultimate family vacation with more than 60-million overnight visitors—that's millions more than New York and more than the annual visitors to London and Vegas combined.
At the theme parks, you can meet your favorite characters, scream together on a roller coaster ride, see a Broadway-quality show, enjoy up-close animal encounters or watch amazing parades and fireworks. But there is much more to do outside of the theme parks. You and your family can take a hot air balloon ride, see alligators in the wild, watch a hiliarous dinner show or play around in a science museum. You can even spend a day just getting lost at your resort, with over-the-top kids' pools and amenities designed just for them. And we don't even mention the many go-kart tracks, water parks and putt-putt courses you can enjoy together. You can come to Orlando year after year and still not do it all.
So bring the whole family, have tons of fun and make some amazing memories together that the kids will never forget. Quality family time. That's what Orlando is all about.
