Some of our favorite picks for food, fun, and things to do in Orlando
The City Beautiful is never lacking for fun things to discover and do, and the list of choices is always growing. Here are some of our picks for the best things to add to your Orlando plans.
Toy Story Land
Kids and grown-ups alike will love all there is to discover in Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®. Visit Andy’s backyard and see friends like Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang — even real-life Green Army Men on patrol. Highlights include the popular Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster, Alien Swirling Saucers, Toy Story Mania!, a midway-style 4D shootin’ game and more, all in a world that surrounds you in fun the way only Disney can.
Sheraton Vistana Resort and Sheraton Vistana Villages
Be at home while staying in the middle of it all at these two resorts perfectly positioned in the heart of Orlando’s theme parks. After a day at the parks, or playing golf, or shopping, or at the beach, come back to your relaxing resort with plenty of at-home amenities.
Mills 50 Neighborhood
One of Orlando’s hippest neighborhoods, Mills 50 (named after the intersection of two major roads) has become a dining destination, with local independent businesses serving up eclectic, tasty dishes. Nosh on inventive tacos at Black Rooster Taqueria. Savor barbecue with a Latin flair at Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa. You’ll even find Thai and Korean street tacos at Tako Cheena. This lively district, just north of downtown, is also home to Quantum Leap, Florida’s only sustainable winery, as well as your choice of cozy cocktail bars, including Lil Indie’s, The Guesthouse, and Sunroom.
Topgolf and Andretti Indoor Karting & Games
Take a break from the parks without taking a break from the action. Topgolf is the perfect place to tee off and test your skills at this tech-forward driving range, keeping score through Topgolf’s microchip technology. Between rounds, enjoy an awesome selection of delicious food and drinks.
Right next door, Andretti Indoor Karting & Games gives drivers “excitement at every turn” at one of Orlando’s premier karting destinations. A bowling alley, giant video arcade and more make Andretti’s a place the family can enjoy for a couple of hours, or a whole day.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Orlando’s hottest attraction is now open and ready for adventurers of all ages. The long-awaited land — the most massive and technologically advanced expansion ever in any Disney park — immerses visitors in a world complete with Stormtroopers and spies, droids and Rebels. Here you can build your own custom droid or lightsaber, experience the thrilling Smugglers Run ride aboard the full-size Millennium Falcon, meet Chewbacca and Rey, and much more, then explore every corner of the land for hidden surprises.
