When you talk about going to Orlando, Florida, the images of Disney World undoubtedly comes to mind. The Greatest Place on Earth is certainly a must once in your life, but is not a necessity each trip. There are several other activities for you to enjoy in the Orlando area.
Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows – 8267 International Drive, Orlando
The Sleuths Mystery Dinner Show is an activity that you can do on each trip without fear of getting bored. With 14 different shows running every day of the week, it should be easy to see a new show. Each ticket costs $53.95 per adult and $23.95 per child (age 3 – 11). Included in the price are dinner, show, unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks. Dinner choices include Cornish Game Hen, Four Cheese Lasagna (with or without meatballs) or Prime Rib (for an extra $3).
Titanic the Experience – 7324 International Drive, Orlando
Titanic the Experience is an incredible museum that contains various exhibits about the tragic day the ship went down in 1912. A couple of things come to mind when I think about the exhibit, include an apparatus that you could touch that is temperature of the water from that tragic day. Another part of the exhibit that stands out is the entrance ticket. The ticket lists a name of a passenger, and near the end of the tour, there are walls with the names of each passenger, and whether they survived or passed away. It adds a little suspense to the tour.Tickets cost $21.95 per adult and $12.95 per child (age 3 – 11). They are open 365 days a year from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Disney Wide World of Sports – Kissimmee
The Disney Wide World of Sports complex is 220 acres and features multiple activities throughout the year. From ESPN the Weekend to slow pitch softball tournaments, this is state of the art facility is one of the most beautiful in the area. May I suggest attending an Atlanta Braves spring training game if your trip occurs in March. Champion Stadium can hold 9,500 fans in the bleachers or the picnic areas in the outfield. Each seat feels as though you are right on the field.
