It’s true: Orlando is a magical place. And it’s not just because it’s home to Cinderella’s castle at Walt Disney World. There’s an incredible mix of fun things to do in this great city that make it an ideal vacationing spot for families, foodies, outdoor adventurous types, luxury shoppers and international visitors.

While the city was built on theme park fame, the number and variety of Orlando attractions have grown to include world-famous restaurants, high-end outlet shopping centers, theatrical performances, and amazing concert and sporting event venues. (source: visitflorida.com)

Other Info

There’s no other city in the United States – the world, even – that celebrates the spirit of childhood quite like Orlando, Florida. The feeling that you get when you catch the light off Epcot Center’s Spaceship Earth, or from your first sip of Butterbeer in Hogsmeade – all prove that being a kid is about your state of mind, not age.

The notion that only young ones will enjoy this city’s charms is just that – a notion. In reality, Orlando has a little of this and a little of that to appeal to all ages, and there’s more to do here than visit theme parks. The subtropical climate is great for golfing and the downtown city landscape is too attractive not to explore. (source: travel.usnews.com)

The SAA does not run the workshops and summer institutes; it approves separate businesses to run them.
