Florida is famous for theme parks. The park that started it all was Disney World in Orlando and Disney continues to be the anchor for central Florida vacations. But there are many other theme parks that are worth visiting in Central Florida and in many other parks of the state.
Central Florida Theme Parks
Disney World, Sea World, and Islands of Adventure are our 3 top picks for theme parks in Orlando.
Disney World is excellent for younger children and kids of all ages. If you have never been there before you can easily spend 2 days or longer.
Sea World is a must see. It’s great for all ages and you will be amazed by the sea life including Killer Whales, Seals, Walrus, Dolphins, Manatees, Sharks and more. To see everything at Sea World plan on spending an entire day.
If you love rides then Islands of Adventure is for you. There are rides for all ages ranging from Seuss Landing, which has rides for younger children like Cat in the Hat to the Hulk Roller Coaster that will thrill the most seasoned roller coaster lover. There are also water rides such as Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls that will cool you off in the Hot Florida sun.
There are hundreds of other attractions in the Orlando and nearby areas - here are a few highlights:
Kennedy Space Center is directly east of Orlando on the coast in Titusville. You can see a space shuttle up close, ride in the shuttle simulator, and see the launch pads.
