A huge crowd of youngsters, adults, parents and even grandparents make Orlando one of the most fun and exciting holiday destinations.

While one part of this huge city is its countless theme parks, there are also many other things that you can explore. Take a look at our Orlando Itinerary 5 Days and blend the two worlds to make the most of your vacation!

THEME PARKS

Spending an entire day at one particular park may be considered too much, however, with so many attractions in and around the parks, you can not only take it at your own pace but have a wonderful experience. Listed below are four out of the countless themed parks, if you are interested in any of the others, you can add them to your plan!

SeaWorld

A marine themed park, SeaWorld, Orlando was opened in 1973. The park encompasses an area of 200 acres and is one of the top themed parks not only in the country, but the world. Live shows, exhibits and rides are the major tourist attractions of this park. Some of the most popular ones include Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, Dolphin Theatre, Wild Arctic, and Stingray Lagoon. Spending an entire day here is easy as there are a number of exhibits and shows. At the end of an exciting day, you can even dine here with the sharks!

Disney World and Epcot

A world in itself, Disney World has everything from camping and sightseeing to entertainment activities and shopping. Part of the Disney World, along with Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, is Epcot, another themed park. While here, make sure you tour it as it is one of the best ones here.

Universal Studios

The second largest themed park in Orlando, your 5 Days in Orlando would be incomplete without a day well spent here. Part of this world are Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay and Universal CityWalk. The park also has five resorts which make for a luxurious stay. Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of the major attractions here, but the other Hollywood attractions are equally thrilling. Grab a glass of butterbeer, shop for real merchandise and relish the chocolate frogs here, before moving onto the other areas.

AND MORE…

Apart from theme parks, Orlando has a number of other activities that you can enjoy. Take a tour along the Crystal River, where you can swim with Manatees, or take a helicopter tour and view the entire city from above. You even have a number of museums and centers that will add immensely to your experience. Madame Tussauds, Orlando Science Center, and Orlando Museum of Art, Kennedy Space Center are amongst the top museums, although The World of Chocolate museum is equally fascinating.
