  • Attended the 6AM Easter Sunday mass. Very nice. Called week before and was told no reservations just "first come, first served" Worked out very nicely.  more »
  • One of my first stops when I get to Orlando. Very peaceful and beautiful Shrine. Love the gift shop, so much to choose from. Love going to Mass at the Shrine. Excited to go back later this month.  more »
  • What a beautiful Church. It's a unique sort of place as it is built for all of the traveling Catholics that need to go to Holy Mass when they are on vacation. It's a unique experience. Also, check out the gift shop it has some amazing devotional items and souvenirs. It's a great place!
  • A Beautiful Basilica, under interior remodel when we visited. The Basilica has a large nave, with room for thousands; true to Mary's patronage there are many beautiful Marian windows. There is a very large Catholic bookstore. Despite its proximity to I-4 and theme parks traffic was manageable. My family was seated just thirty minutes after we left our Disney hotel. The Basilica of the National Shrine is a great option to meed your Sunday Obligation while on vacation in Orlando (and a beautiful Shrine in its own right).
