What’s new at Orlando’s Theme Parks this Summer
Every theme park in Central Florida is packed this summer and here’s the reason why you should come to Orlando and avoid missing out on all the fun
Sun, fun, heat, and excitement—that’s what Orlando means to the millions of visitors who come to the heart of Florida’s hospitality industry every summer. And so, with good reason because when you see what Orlando has to offer, no other city on earth can fulfill… Not even by a longshot. So let’s go ahead and share what’s going on in our world-famous theme parks:
Disney World – Under the theme of “Awaken the Summer” all four Disney parks are showcasing a variety of shows, new attractions and venues—including more Star Wars-themed attractions, Frozen Ever After and of course, daily parades featuring characters from both classic and recent Disney movies. And after a day at the theme parks, be sure to head over to Disney Springs, a new entertainment, shopping and dining venue built as an expansion of the former Downtown Disney.
Universal Studios – The biggest opening of a new attraction is well under way at Universal Orlando with Skull Island: Reign of Kong—a new ride that takes on you on an expedition through a world reigned by none other than the king of all apes: King Kong. And although it isn’t open yet, visitors to Universal can also see the construction of its newest water park, Volcano Bay, which will replace Wet’n Wild in 2017.
SeaWorld Orlando – While some are sad to see killer whale shows go away, this adventure theme park still has plenty to offer. In fact, the park just opened Mako, the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Florida. So if you are into high-energy adrenaline-ridden experiences, then riding Mako should be on your bucket list—there’s nothing faster than Mako.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is so close to the action that you can almost hear the screams of excitement from these and many more area attractions. And best of all, being so close to the theme parks and conveniently located near the International Drive entertainment district, we are your top choice for staying in Orlando during your next vacation. The summer awaits, so get going and book early before the deals are gone!
