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.
Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe and The Howey Mansion will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Discovery Cove and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore Orlando's surroundings by going to Kissimmee (Kissimmee Air Museum, Fishing Charters & Tours, & more), Corpus Christi Catholic Church (in Celebration) and Mount Dora Museum Of Speed (in Mount Dora). Have a day of magic on the 21st (Fri) at Walt Disney World Resort. Pack the 25th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Universal's Islands of Adventure. And it doesn't end there: discover the magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St James Roman Catholic Cathedral, don't miss a visit to St Jude Maronite Catholic Church, and see the interesting displays at Madame Tussauds Orlando.
