Orlando Essential Info


Orlando is a large city located in Orange County, Florida.

Orlando, for most people, conjures up the image of theme parks, mainly Walt Disney World, but there is a lot more. (In fact, Disney World is not in Orlando, but is in nearby Lake Buena Vista). With the estimated 52 million tourists a year, Orlando and many other areas in the region developed a lot to offer a traveler who wants to see something other than a theme park.

Other cities in the metropolitan area include Altamonte Springs, Davenport, Kissimmee, and Winter Park.
