Theme Parks in Central Florida

The reason to go to Central Florida is the Theme Parks. It all started with Walt Disney secretly buying up cow pastures to create Disney World, which is the size of a small city.

For families with school age children you can fly into Orlando, get transportation to one of the many Disney Resorts and never leave Disney for a week. You won’t need a car as Disney World has trams, boats, buses, and a monorail to take you everywhere.

But there is more to Central Florida than Disney. So if you want to venture out get a car and you won’t ever run out of things to do.

What makes Orlando and the Central Florida area famous is the Big Theme Parks. Here is a short list of the big parks:

Disney World , Universal Studios, Disney MGM Studios, Sea World, Islands of Adventure, Blizzard Beach, Typhon Lagoon, and Disney Animal Kingdom.

These are just the really big theme parks. You could spend several days at Disney alone. If you really hustle you can see the good stuff at Universal Studios or Disney MGM studios in a day but there are many rides that are so good you will want to repeat them.
