Feel the adrenaline rush of indoor skydiving; twisting and turning on a thrilling roller coaster; or soaring over Central Florida in a glider, WWII fighter plane, helicopter or hot-air balloon. Cool off as you splash, spin, turn and twist through one-of-a-kind water rides at the area's water parks and water ski parks. Or, discover the weird and unusual, the historic, and the spectacular at the many unique indoor attractions.
In fact, when you consider the mix of legendary theme parks, magnificent museums, world-class entertainment and blockbuster rides and attractions, it would take more than 65 eight-hour days to visit all of the entertaining offerings in Orlando.
Although Walt Disney's wonders do dominate the area - and have done for the past 30 years - Universal Orlando's two upgraded parks come in a close second in terms of attractions.
And there are countless other locations, including Busch Gardens, Wet 'n Wild, SeaWorld and the nearby Kennedy Space Center all vying to offer visitors a fantastic day out.
Everything in Orlando is on a massive scale, and that includes visitor numbers: over 13 million to the region each year, filling the 80,000 plus hotel rooms and eating in the city's 3,000 restaurants.
Walt Disney World alone covers an area of around 47 square miles and most visitors, even if they spend two weeks in Orlando, will only manage to see a fraction of the attractions on offer.
You can swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove, have a splashing good time at Water Mania water park, or give your credit card a bashing at one of the many discount shopping outlets.
Eating out can also be an adventure: you can book dinner at Medieval Times, a replica 11th century castle, where you'll enjoy a hearty feast while knights battle it out for a fair maiden's hand, or sample the Eastern delights of the Arabian Nights dining experience. Eating out is all part of the American Experience and Orlando has more of its fair share of every type of eatery from fast food to feasts, from southern specialties to ethnic restaurants.</p>
