Flights to Orlando

Don’t let Orlando’s image fool you. This isn’t just a fun-packed paradise for kids; it’s a rollercoaster ride for grown-ups too! Orlando may conjure images of Mickey and Minnie, fairy-tale castles, death-defying rides and performing sea life, but there is so much more to this exotic, hippy American peninsula than meets the eye.

While Disneyland and Sea World are sure to be hands-down favourites with the kids, there are many other weird and wonderful experiences to be had, waiting just around the corner. Universal Studios brings the magical world of movies to life with lights, camera, action and special effects. The Animal Kingdom Theme Park promises wild animals and wild rides while Wet ‘n Wild is one giant waterslide filled wonderland.

Adults wanting to escape the theme park scene can dip into Orlando’s exciting world of arts and culture. The Winter Park History Museum and Museum of American Art are two great places to start. Those with a sweet tooth can indulge their senses and their taste-buds in the delectable World of Chocolate Museum with café! The Orlando Ballet and Philharmonic Orchestra put on stunning shows as the sun goes down, while the City Arts Factory is at the cutting edge of modern design.

Although the big city bustle is a draw for many, there are un-missable and wonderful opportunities to explore Orlando’s great outdoors. Take an airboat cruise down Florida’s steamy, serene and eerily still canals, with crocodiles lurking in their murky depths. Soar through the skies in a hot air balloon ride; surf the wild waves by jet ski or slow the pace completely with a horse trek or a spot of scenic sunset fishing. Kayaking with the friendly local Manatee as they swim in and out of the majestic and ancient Cypress trees is a highlight of any trip to Orlando.

Whether you spend your days shopping ‘til you drop in the store-filled malls or quirky boutiques of Florida’s sprawling boulevards; relaxing in luxurious spas or running from games of crazy golf to crazy rollercoasters, Orland by night will reward you handsomely with its dazzling lights and endless entertainment.

Cigar bars and glitzy nightclubs, casinos, live music venues and comedy clubs all compete for visitor’s attention. Downtown diners buzz with families enjoying the warm Orlando nights and pancake stacks and candle light flickers, illuminating intimate tables in the windows of the city’s most elegant restaurants. Feast on any cuisine you can conjure before collapsing onto cool crisp sheets while dreaming of the next day’s adventures.
