One of the most popular travel destinations for Canadians is Orlando, Florida. No where else can you find the same amount of theme parks and seemingly endless list of tourist attractions all in the same city. Here’s some of the best new things Orlando has to offer this March Break and the best still to come in 2019.
LEGOLAND Florida Resort
You’ve probably seen a lot of different roller coasters but none quite like The Great LEGO Race. Ride the first virtual reality roller coaster specifically designed for kids. Hop in, pop up your VR headset and enjoy this one of a kind ride at LEGOLAND Florida Resort.
Fans of The LEGO Movie will be in for a real treat starting March 27th when The LEGO Movie World opens up. With 3 all new rides (Battle of Bricksburg, Unikitty's Disco Drop, and Masters of Flight), this new area packs no shortage of fun for fans of the movie franchise.
This new attraction has been taking riders to new heights since its opening in 2018. You’ll easily spot it on the popular International Drive. Just look for the 400 foot tall giant spinning swings.
Drive Shack Orlando
If you love golf and gaming, head on over to Drive Shack Orlando. It takes a modern spin on golf by putting you in comfortable full service driving range bays while you play one of many available golfing simulation games. Great for both amateurs and pros alike.
SeaWorld's Seven Seas Food Festival
If you’re looking for a new food festival to try, make sure to check out the Seven Seas Food Festival over at SeaWorld. You’ll be able to sample your way around the world and enjoy live music. Open now through May 5th.
The Orlando Forum’s ROCK Dinner Show
Described as a “one-of-a-kind, dining and entertainment experience that brings audiences of all ages through a high-energy musical journey of the Kings of Rock and Pop”. Enjoy a variety of live performances from some of the most iconic rock and pop artists of all time.
Walt Disney World
Many of you will be heading down to see Mickey and while it’ll be busy at Walt Disney World, you’ll find no shortage of great things to see and do.
March break visitors can enjoy the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival which runs from March 6th to June 3rd and features beautiful topiaries of your favourite characters as well as delicious new foods to try. You can also enjoy the brand new Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios and even get a great glimpse of the upcoming Star Wars themed land, Galaxy’s Edge, while riding Slinky Dog Dash.
Don’t forget about the Canadian resident offer which offers 4-day or longer tickets starting at just $79/day.
Universal Orlando Resort
On top of being home to some of Orlando’s best rides and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Orlando is also celebrating Mardi Gras! Parades, street performers and live music are just some of the cool things you can experience each night until April 4th at Universal Studios Florida.
On June 13th take a mystical adventure aboard Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. This new roller coaster plunges you into the path of some of the rarest magical creatures in the Harry Potter universe.
Margaritaville Resort Orlando
If you’re looking for somewhere new and unique to stay, check out the brand new Margaritaville Resort Orlando.
In addition to regular rooms, you can book one of 1,000 Margaritaville-themed vacation home which offer all the conveniences you'd expect in one. Did I mention there’s also a 12-acre water park opening up there later this spring?----
