For most people, any mention of Orlando immediately conjures up images of sprawling theme parks filled with characters plucked right out of popular animated movies.
Kids will enjoy Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Change things up with these side-trips from Orlando: Marine Science Center (in Ponce Inlet), NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex (in Merritt Island) and MOAS - Museum of Arts and Sciences (in Daytona Beach). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal's Islands of Adventure, discover the magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom, tour the pleasant surroundings at Discovery Cove, and make a trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
