Orlando Travel Guide: 3,239 reviews and 6,587 photos

Well where do I start? Firstly you don't appreciate how big the world is until you have flown across the Atlantic Ocean and for someone like me who doesn't like flying it is very big, but I survived the journey fairly well.

I went to America with so many ideas of what it and the people would be like, how wrong could I be. Orlando was clean and tidy (you could drop a piece of litter and it would be picked up before it hit the floor), the people were so friendly and helpful they would bend over backwards to make you feel at home, there was no trouble and most importantly of all I never once heard "HAVE A NICE DAY OR MISSING YOU ALREADY", like you see in films.

There is so much I can say about America which I probably will, but this was the best holiday I have ever had.

Mickey and Friends will be arriving on this page shortly, eventually.

    I used to live in Lakeland, FL back in the early 60's when I was a kid. Its only about 35 miles from Orlando, but it was a swamp then. I enjoyed DW when I took my stepson about 6 years ago...

    Looks like you REALLY loved Orlando and all the parks. Sooner or later, I'll make trip there number 9 (or 10, I lost count)

    Great Orlando page. Sounds like you had a great time while there. Loved your photos. Great tip about the sunscreen as well. It amazes me how many fair skinned people will do that only to get a near 3rd degree burn by the end of the day.

    Dunk, I'll be back to rate your Orlando page. I might be a bit emotional post-Frances, but your little Orlando intro brought tears to my eyes. I'll be back.

    The Clyde and Seamore show was hysterical. I saw it 2 years ago and laughed so much when Clyde made that barking sound when the trainer put his hand in his mouth. Thanks for the funny memory jogger.
