Visit the World’s Most Famous Mouse in Orlando by Patrick Jafrey

To spend quality time together with your family- Orlando, Florida comes to the mind without an effort. Its beauty apart, it is home to the most popular mouse in the world, Mickey Mouse. The town has many parks dedicated to the mouse and his pals. You must have loved Mickey in your childhood and perhaps even today. So go to the lovely and many Disney theme parks and water parks that have made this sleepy town of Florida famous the world over. Plan a complete Disney holiday and stay at one of its themed resorts. Don't worry about the cost; there are packages to suit every budget.

There is no better place to be than the “Most Magical Place on Earth.” That slogan has propelled Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom into the stratosphere of family oriented theme parks. Whether you decide to fly around Neverland with Peter Pan and his pals or brave the unknown of Space Mountain, the Magic Kingdom is the place to be! Kids and adults alike will find something interested to see or do in this great theme park, whether it’s the famous puppets singing the catchy “It’s a Small World After All” or just shopping at the many stores on Main Street, USA the park is a must-see.

The Animal Kingdom is the latest addition to the Walt Disney World theme parks. It gives a unique twist to the traditional zoo with different sections housing animals native to different continents. You can go on safari in the park’s African savannah or plunge down white river rapids in the Asian section. You will get the thrilling experience of rides, attractions, and animals. In addition, you can learn more about different cultures through a variety of shows and educational exhibits at the park.

If you are a movie buff, you can go over to MGM Studios for a sneak peek behind the scenes. MGM Studios is designed like an actual movie studio that gives you the chance to relive your favorite moments from classics like "Singin’ in the Rain" and the famous "Star Wars" movies. You can also take a tour of the back lot and see how movies are made with great special effects and cool stunts.

Disney's Blizzard Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon are the two water parks in Orlando for those who swear by water activities. Blizzard Beach is complete with luges and a ski jump for the daring. It used to be a ski resort before being converted into a water park. For body surfing, watching lovely fishes and lazing down a river there is the Typhoon Lagoon.
