The Top Ten Orlando Holiday Attractions

Orlando is​ world-famous for its huge theme parks and water parks,​ but they can get very crowded,​ so it’s best to​ get there before 8.30am,​ or​ go after 4.00pm in​ the​ afternoon.

Be sure to​ plan your day at​ the​ park ahead of​ time,​ and take plenty of​ water and sunscreen.
