Orlando: Beyond the theme parks

Fun days out

There are some fantastic days out that you can enjoy just a short drive away from the major theme parks.

Tree Trek Adventure

Tree Trek Adventure Park

Monkey around in the lush Orlando forest on this tree top obstacle course. Tarzan-swing, leap into nets, climb ropes and zoom round zip lines for a challenging but hilarious day out you won't forget.

Nona Water Park

Nona Adventure Park

Get ready to make a splash at this thrilling aquapark featuring a 1000ft floating inflateable obstacle course, 60ft climbing tower/ropes course and wake boarding cable park, making for a fun-filled action-packed day.

Kennedy Space Centre

Kennedy Space Center

The hub of all NASA activity, a day here is an experience of a lifetime where you can watch a real rocket launch, speak to real astronauts and learn about NASA missions, past and future, in interactive exhibits.

Orlando Science Center

Orlando Science Center

Get down with dinosaurs and get up close to reptiles as the Orlando Science Center brings science to life with exciting exhibits on nature, conservation, engineering, technology, food and more.

Orlando Eye, Orlando

The Wheel at ICON Park

See Orlando from 400ft in the air, with fantastic views of Walt Disney World, Universal, nature reserves and lakes. Then peruse the boutiques and stop for food. The perfect way to have a chilled break from busy park days.

Surf's up!

You may need to travel an hour or two to get to a beach from Orlando, but it really is worth it! Many of these beaches are considered some of the best in the world, and whether you stay for a day or longer, getting some Vitamin Sea is the perfect way to unwind and re-centre after long days spent at Orlando's adrenaline-fuelled theme parks.

Calling all sports fans...

Sport is HUGE in the US and a holiday to Orlando is a great opportunity to join in with the fans and experience some all-American games first-hand.

Basketball in Orlando

Experience Orlando Magic

And no we're not talking about fairy dust! Going to see a basketball game is a quintessential American experience and the NBA is one of the most exciting sports leagues in the world. Head to the Amway Center, grab a hot dog and join Stuff the Magic Dragon (the team mascot) in cheering on the Orlando Magic basketball team.

Orlando City SC Stadium

Cheer for Orlando City

Football's coming Orlando! Soccer is big news in Orlando from pre-game fun to post-match celebrations, the atmosphere is electric. Fans fill the streets wearing Orlando City's team colour of purple, firing purple smoke cannons, chanting in solidarity. The stadium becomes a sea of purple flags and local bars downtown are full of supporters making the most of game day drink specials.

Ice hockey

Watch Orlando Solar Bears

Another popular sport in the US is ice hockey! The Orlando Solar Bears are a minor league ice hockey team that plays at the Amway Center twice a week. It's a high-octane sport to watch and a fun day out if you're looking for something a little bit different.

Explore the great outdoors

Get back to nature and explore Orlando's mystical rivers, forests, marshes and mangroves, as well as the many birds, fish, reptiles and mammals that call them home.

Shop til you drop

Disney Springs Shopping

Malls, outlets and boutiques galore!

Shopping in Orlando is like being in a theme park! There are endless options for bargain hunters, treasure seekers and luxury lovers alike.

Close to the theme parks you'll find 3 amazing open-air designer outlets and The Florida Mall which features all your favourite high street brands. For high-end fashion, head to The Mall at Millenia to covet names like Hermès, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. For something more unique, while away the hours browsing eclectic boutiques downtown in Winter Park, while International Drive and Disney Springs are both fantastic for combining a day of shopping with world-class food and entertainment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.

We'll be in touch soon

To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.
