Walt Disney World is magical, I think they pay attention to the smallest details like in New Fantasyland, which is actually the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history. And one of the most amazing rides there is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It´s great for families and riding in the back seat is way more fun.
Universal Orlando Resort is really fantastic for adventurous people, especially if you're a huge fan of Harry Potter as you've got to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley which opened recently. They have interactive wands that can change things in the window displays, you can even turn on the water fountains using your interactive wand. So they've added a lot of really fun, detailed touches that make you feel like you're on the world of Harry Potter.
Sea World allows you to be up close to the animals, be sure to check out the new Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. They've got a new ride and when you get off of the ride, the penguins are right there. You can spend as much as you want in there, you can almost reach out and touch them. It's really incredible.
You can go swimming with dolphins at Discovery Cove. They only allow a certain amount of people into the park each day. So it really feels like an exclusive private island. Discovery Cove has been named the best theme park two years in a row by TripAdvisor, So, it's an incredible experience.
Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts, a new venue for live performances in downtown Orlando. "It is a gorgeous venue, great for events, there's Broadway-style plays there, there's going to be concerts, there's a beautiful plaza area where they'll have outdoors music, but there are always lots of fun things going on.
