You can choose to board on the hotel shuttle bus heading to any one theme park of followings: Disney Epcot Center
Epcot consists of two themed areas, Future World and World Showcase. Future World features attractions that focus on energy, communication, the land and our environment, the ocean, imagination, transportation and space exploration. Centered around a beautiful reflective lagoon is Epcot's "World Showcase". Each country features entertainment, dining and shopping unique to their culture. Take advantage of the kidcot stops and think twice about some of the movies at several of the countries. All isn't lost, in Mexico and Norway there are boat rides that kids will definitely like and most everyone enjoys the 'street' performers scheduled throughout the day. There is a nighttime spectacular where thunderous fireworks and lasers fill the skies above World Showcase Lagoon. Video images are displayed across a giant sphere in the middle of the lagoon that tells the Earth's incredible tale. The sphere then blossoms like a flower, exposing a ball of fire and leads to the shows finale.
Disney Magic Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom is divided into five distinct areas (lands), arranged in a spoke-like formation, all meeting at the top of Main Street USA right in front of Cinderella Castle. The five lands consist of Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and Adventureland. Each land is themed to its appropriate title and maintaining that theme is paramount to the parks operation. The Magic Kingdom contains some real "don't miss" attractions, depending on what age bracket you fall in. Such as Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, and Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain etc. Most spectacular of all Disney's parks are the parades
and fireworks displayed in front of Cinderella Castle. Guests of Walt Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom are told a thrilling "story in the sky" featuring hundreds of brilliant pyrotechnic effects exploding above and around Cinderella Castle.
Disney Animal Kingdom
At a cost of nearly $1 Billion to complete, Animal Kingdom was an expensive theme park. Animal Kingdom's 500 acres are home to some 1700 animals representing 250 different species throughout the park. A ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari will give you a chance to see many of them as they take you through the African Savannah. As the Parks Icon, the Tree of Life is a 145ft, 14 story artificial tree has the images of more than 300 animals hand carved into its trunk. It's important to appreciate Animal Kingdom for what it is - do that, and you'll have a very enjoyable time in this very unique park.
Disney Hollywood Studios
Disney's Hollywood Studios is a mixed bag when it comes to attractions for little kids. There's the "Voyage of the Little Mermaid", "Playhouse Disney-Live On Stage", "Jim Henson's Muppet Vision 3-D" and the aforementioned "Beauty and the Beast", "Toy Story Mania" as well as the 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids" Playground. There are also a ton of character meet and greets. At the end of Sunset Boulevard "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" is one of the best attractions at Walt Disney World. It's 13 stories high (naturally) and has been deserted and the signs of neglect are everywhere. Once you've fastened your seatbelt, the doors close and the elevator heads up. First stop, the doors open and you see a very cool optical illusion. The doors close again and at the next stop, you move forward. Get ready, this is where the real fun begins. Now a computer is in control making each ride random and unique. You never know how many times you'll go up and down and up and down and......
Disney Blizzard Beach
It is one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World Resort, features one of the world's tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides, as well as slides and rides for the whole family - like a kid-sized, snow-castle fountain play area with scaled-down versions of the more thrilling attractions. The story behind Disney's Blizzard Beach begins with a freak snow storm that blanketed Florida. Within the blink of a snowflake-tipped eye, a ski resort sprang up with slalom courses, toboggan slides and iceberg walkways. Then just as quickly, the weather shifted back to hot. The whole resort started to melt. What to do? An enterprising alligator saw an opportunity! Clad in a scarf and hat, this Ice Gator slid down the snow-less ski jump, shouting 'Yahoooo!' all the way. With a big splash he landed in a pool of melted snow below the mountain. It was at this moment the slushy, slippery slopes became an exhilarating Water Park with a ski theme.
Disney's Typhoon Lagoon
This is one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World Resort, features attractions for the whole family-from fast waterslides to a children's area with pint-sized raft rides. Catch 6-foot waves in the Surf Pool and snorkel Shark Reef - with real sharks! According to Disney legend, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park was created in the wake of the storm-of-storms. During the meteorological disturbance, surfboards were hurled into palm trees and boats were tossed through thatched roofs of beach houses and onto mountains. A hapless shrimp boat, Miss Tilly, journeying from Safen Sound, Florida, found itself swept up by the twisting tides of the fierce typhoon. The storm's force propelled the boat onto To this day Miss Tilly, the shrimp boat, still sits - impaled and precariously perched. Every half hour, the boat's whistle blows and the volcano attempts to dislodge its burden by bursting, causing an enormous geyser of water to shoot skyward. After the storm swept out to sea, the Disney legend concludes, Mount Mayday became the source for many waterslides. Surrounding the mountain, a 56-acre topsy-turvy tropical paradise was formed - full of waterways, rivers, rapids and slides: a sun-drenched Water Park.
Universal Studios Florida was the first of Universal's theme parks to open in Orlando back in 1990.

At SeaWorld Orlando, the resident animals are more than just photo - they're the main attraction. Submerge yourself in the murky, underwater world of the endangered Florida manatee. Walk through frozen tundra as penguins and puffins cavort above, below and beside you. And get up close and personal with denizens of the deep, including eels, barracuda, venomous fish and sharks, in an underwater tunnel that traverses a deep-sea aquarium. SeaWorld is also home to a number of rides, including a collection of killer roller coasters. Kraken, named for Poseidon's mythological underwater beast, is Orlando's highest, fastest, longest and only floorless roller coaster, dangling riders above the track on pedestal seats at speeds of 65 mph.
