We're coming to America!!!!!!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just for a holiday - for 7 days, but I'm really excited as I've never been "accross the pond" before!
We're going to Orlando - staying on International drive - so I guess we'll be doing all the parks? I want to go SHOPPING!
Anyone got anywhere we must go to?

You HAVE to go to Old Town!

There are sooooooooo many shops there!

I think you'll enjoy it!

If I wasn't so far away we could arrange a meet up but I'm on the other coast

If you're going to Disney, I'm sure they have giant pretzels.Wet 'N Wild was tons of fun when I went there years ago. It's on International Drive, so I think you're obligated!

If you want to pm me the dates you will be here, I'll search and see if there is a close by cat show for you.

You should hit up both Disney AND Islands of Adventure if you can. Universal Studios is one of my favorite places in Orlando. For good shopping there is an Outlet Mall close to International Drive that has great namebrand things (like Coach, Prada, etc) for cheap!!!
AND Definitely do one of the dinner shows (like Medieval Times, Arabian Knights, etc) OR see Cirque de soliel also!!!!!!!!!
HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some of my best vacation memories as a kid were when we went down to Florida with my relatives from Philly (twice). Those were great times. We went to Disney and Medieval Times (which was so cool), raced go carts, went to Gatorland USA and did a lot of other things.

Have a safe and awesome trip.

Hello Jess. Have a great holiday in America

If you love the parks, I would definitely check out Universal and Islands of Adventure. We went last year and LOVED Islands of Adventure. There's so many rides there, and different themed sections of the park. Dr. Seuss land was my favorite.

Also, it's a little expensive, but Discovery Cove is awesome if you love marine life. You can swim in a lagoon filled with tropical fish, wade with stingrays, or snorkel in a lagoon (just water, no fish.) Also, more money, you can swim with a dolphin for 30 minutes. I absolutely loved it. And if you like marine life, but don't have the money for Discovery Cove, Sea World is always fun. I love it there!

I lived in FL and I think there are some southern dishes you should try. From FL, key lime pie. Also, go to see an orange grove if you can and have some fresh juice.

For other Southern dishes. grits and buttermilk biscuits with gravy in the morning. Collard greens and anything with okra. Also, rice and beans. Besides the key lime pie, there is nothing like a true sweet potato pie or a great pecan pie. Oh, and catfish, too.

Those, along with the foot long hot dogs at Disney

Your going to be exhausted fitting everything in in 7 days though. I've been several times for two week visits and it can be quite tiring

The shopping is fab though!. We went to Belz and spent a fortune!
