Orlando has so many outstanding attractions: see below for fifteen suggestions including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and much more at Universal Orlando, terrific shows such as Cirque du Soleil, unusual theme parks such as Discovery Cove. Top of the list, however, is indisputably:

The Walt Disney World Theme Parks
Mickey's still king of the hill -- or, rather, of the very flat land. Spread over an area the size of Boston are:
  • Four theme parks (Magic Kingdom, the top place for those with little kids; EPCOT; Disney's Hollywood Studios; and Animal Kingdom)
  • Two exellent water parks
  • 22 themed resorts that are fun in themselves...
Each of the theme parks is giant and has a unique character: head to Disney World Vacations for an introduction. Given the sheer size of it all, make sure you have a game plan before you enter the World! See Top Tips for Visiting Walt Disney World.
