Without a doubt, your top New Year’s resolution is to visit Orlando, Florida and experience all the excitement our vacation wonderland has to offer in 2014
The New Year 2014 is finally here and this means that the countdown begins the countdown to some of the most exciting and awaited new attractions in Orlando. As theme parks aim at attracting both old and new fans, Orlando is once again making headlines worldwide with the addition of new rides, lands and themed venues. Here is a quick reference list so that you can plan your vacation ahead—and of course, book your stay at Vista Cay Resort by Millenium:
Walt Disney World – After its successful launch of the New Fantasyland in 2013, Disney is getting ready to daze us with new attractions. That said, the star attraction for this reboot of the already-successful Fantasyland will be the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride, based on the Snow White fantasy tale, which is set to open in 2014 at the Magic Kingdom. As more attractions details are released, we will be sure to give you the “heads up” with new information.
Universal Orlando - Universal Studios Florida will welcome a new theme land and attraction based on the successful Harry Potter franchise in the summer of 2014 (possibly in June). The Diagon Alley expansion will feature shops based on the London setting of the movie, as well as a restaurant where guests will immerse in the Harry Potter world, and finally a Gringotts Bank-themed attraction. We can’t wait until this new Harry Potter attraction in Orlando opens!
- SeaWorld Orlando – In 2013, SeaWorld launched Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins and the park finally gave the little critters a worthy attraction to call their own. Now, in 2014 this adventure park will focus on the education of guests with exhibits. But the big news is their new attraction at the Aquatica water park, which will introduce Ihu’s Breakaway Falls—a multiple high-rise slide attraction that is expected to give guests the tallest slide drop in Orlando.
International Drive Orlando also awaits the launch of new entertainment venues and restaurants, including Mango's Tropical Café—a South Beach-themed restaurant and nightlife hotspot set to open a couple of miles from Vista Cay Resort by Millenium. Already as successful hotspot in Miami, the new restaurant will feature live bands, dance shows and gourmet dining with a tropical flair. Mango’s Tropical Café Orlando is expected to open in late summer or early fall 2014.
So there you have it, there’s plenty of reasons for you to come to Orlando in 2014. And that’s not even taking into account the countless conventions and trade shows that business travelers will visit in 2014—all located at the Orange County Convention Center, a stone’s throw from Vista Cay Resort by Millenium. Now, be sure to add “Orlando Vacation” to your New Year’s resolution and start planning your trip to the vacation capital of the world!
