Attractions

See why Orlando is known as the theme park capital of the world—and don’t forget there are plenty of other fun, quirky reasons to leave your hotel:

  • Universal Orlando: Universal Orlando's spectacular theme parks offer dozens of amazing rides and attractions, from state-of-the-art 4-D attractions to pulse-pounding roller coasters.
