International Drive is a food lover’s paradise! You’ll find American favourites like Denny’s®, Perkins and International House of Pancakes, locally known as IHOP! The all-you-can-eat buffets at Ponderosa® and Sizzler’s are second to none, or why not enjoy a meal at one of the world’s largest McDonalds? For fine dining, head over to Sand Lake Road, known as ‘Restaurant Row’ for your trendy eateries.
International Drive is the ‘Strip’ of Orlando where you’ll find every possible attraction from mini-golf to a Pirate Dinner show to entertain your imagination. For animal lovers, why not spend a day at Discovery Cove® where you can swim with dolphins and snorkel with tropical fish. Not to mention the World famous attractions of SeaWorld® Orlando and Universal Orlando® Resort which are only minutes away.
International Drive has a variety of entertainment from fairground rides to bars and clubs. Pointe Orlando is a shopping and entertainment complex and features a selection of bars and restaurants. The Cricketers Arms is a British pub for those who are missing home and Bahama Breeze is a restaurant and bar where you can enjoy some alfresco dining.
Orlando is famous for its shopping and International Drive has over 480 shops! Premium Outlets, the Mall of Millennia and Florida Mall are fantastic and easily reached by hire car. A trip to Orlando isn’t complete until you’ve had a round of golf. The Shingle Creek Golf Club, designed by David Harman is a par 72 and ‘the’ place for golf on International Drive.
We understand that even in the land that invented the automobile, not everyone likes to drive, so why not take our convenient free transfer coach from the airport to any hotel in the International Drive area*.
*We regret our transfer coaches cannot drop off at the Enclave Suites, Staybridge Suites, Embassy Suites or Sheraton's Vistana Village.
Please see the individual hotel descriptions for their proximity to restaurants and bars. Many offer FREE scheduled transport to the parks.
For a perfect hassle-free way to explore your surroundings, hop on the I-RIDE Trolley, colourful buses that provide a great regular service. Alternatively, see a member of our resort team in Orlando and they can arrange any number of great value transfer vouchers to take you between your hotel and all the attractions you want to visit.
