Orlando — 5 nights

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Walt Disney World Resort. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Wild Florida Airboats and International Drive. Get a sense of the local culture at Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe and Madame Tussauds Orlando. There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Orlando Resort, push the limits with an extreme tour, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and revel in the low prices at Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets.

Plan my Orlando trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Brussels, Belgium to Orlando is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of train and flight. Traveling from Brussels to Orlando, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. In October, Orlando is much hotter than Brussels - with highs of 34°C and lows of 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) early enough to catch the flight to Miami.

Specialty Museums · Nightlife · Beaches
More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
