Orlando-The Home to Fun, Sun and Endless Smiles

Since the Tigers are on the road again this week, our friends at Visit Orlando were kind enough to submit a post to help you enjoy your time in the city while you travel with the Mizzou Football team.


Orlando is truly the home to sun, fun, and endless smiles? Think about it: world class theme parks, exciting outdoors adventures, endless shopping options and a collision of diverse dining options makes Orlando a win-win situation for every family member, no matter how picky. Year-round Orlando is bigger, better and a whole lot more fun with so many new things to see and do.

Swim with dolphins and get face to face with playful otters and curious marmosets at Discovery Cove’s recently opened Freshwater Oasis. Journey into the life of a sea turtle at SeaWorld’s TurtleTrek, a first-of-its-kind 3-D/360-degree dome shaped theater; at the Universal Orlando Resort don 3-D glasses to get minionized at Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and enjoy a marvelous spectacle of a 100 years worth of Universal Pictures movies; or get in touch with your inner kid at the Magic Kingdom as new cool things are coming to life at Fantasyland throughout this year.

For thrills beyond the roller coasters, take the wheel and put the pedal to the metal of a Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini or an Audi at the Exotic Driving Experience. Swoop, twist and dip through the tree tops at Florida Eco Safaris at Forever Florida’s The Rattlesnake, the first and only roller coaster zip line in the U.S. Love the thrill of a good deal? Then Orlando Premium Outlets is a must-shop with more than 330 stores in two Orlando locations. Famished yet? Then take your pick of cuisines ranging from good ol’ barbeque at local favorite 4Rivers Smokehouse to progressive American cuisine at LUMA on Park or the first “picanha” cut at Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse.
