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.
You've added Scenic Boat Tour, Madame Tussauds, The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show, and other attractions to your itinerary. On the 16th (Tue), enjoy breathtaking views from ICON Orlando, get your game on at WonderWorks, see the interesting displays at Madame Tussauds, join in the after-dark buzz at The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show, then find something for the whole family at Fun Spot America, and finally see the interesting displays at Titanic The Artifact Exhibition. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take a tour by water with Scenic Boat Tour, get a taste of local nightlife at Gatorland, and then meet the residents at SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium.
