Dating back to the 1838, the vibrant city of Orlando was once little more than small settlement, surrounded by dense swampland. Since then, Orlando has transformed into a city buzzing with activity and boasting an endless list of tourist attractions for visitors to enjoy. Its top attractions include Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios Florida and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.
Orlando benefits from the same beautiful weather enjoyed throughout the Sunshine State - and even enjoys mild temperatures during the winter. Theme parks and other popular tourist attractions are popular year-round, particularly during school holidays, so it's important to make sure you leave yourself lots of time to visit all your favourite spots.
Orlando benefits from an extensive interstate system, making it easy to explore the area with a rental car. Most theme parks offer their own shuttle service - including an extensive bus system inside Walt Disney World moving between each of the parks. Orlando's public transport system, in addition to car rental, can help you travel around Orlando easily.
Tipping in Orlando is standard practice, and it's not unusual to leave a small gratuity for an airport concierge, shuttle bus driver or bellhop. Tipping between 15 and 20 per cent for restaurant service is customary, and many restaurants in Orlando make it easy by adding an optional gratuity right to your bill.
The climate in Orlando is temperate year round, with average temperatures ranging roughly between 19C and 32C. The summer months in Orlando are particularly hot, so if you visit between June and September make sure to pack sunscreen and a hat, plus lots of water, when you head out exploring.
"Disney's Typhoon Lagoon has the biggest wave pool in the United States. This water park has pools, rides and entertainment. The park can accommodate any age group, with many things to do."
