The Sunshine State is home to some of the world’s greatest theme parks – in fact, one of Orlando’s popular nicknames is “Theme Park Capital of the World”. This is because amongst the most famous of the Florida theme parks is Walt Disney World, which comprises four different and utterly unique parks; Universal Orlando, which boasts another four; plus a wealth of others including water parks, SeaWorld and Florida’s own Legoland.
But it’s worth remembering that many of Florida theme parks are massive, and will likely require more than one or two days to get around each one individually. Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to discover the secrets and hidden gems of the different attractions – theme parks are big business here in Florida, and the passionate teams responsible for the running of the parks have been known to add their own small touches and secret treasures throughout!
