Things to do
Most come to Maingate West to visit Walt Disney World Resort, which includes four different theme parks, two water parks and several golf courses. Spend a day in the Magic Kingdom, then delve into the high-tech innovations and global cultures of Epcot Center.
Go behind the scenes of your favorite Disney classics at Disney's Hollywood Studios and embark on a safari through the themed zoological park of Disney's Animal Kingdom. In addition to enjoying the rides and attractions of the resort, be sure to visit the outdoor shopping complex of Disney Springs.
Fancy a round of golf? Head to the Mystic Dunes Golf Club’s championship course, designed by former player and NBC golf analyst Gary Koch. If you’re traveling with kids, you can also test your putting skills on their 18-hole miniature golf course.
Spend a day picnicking at Lake Louisa State Park, which boasts one of Orlando’s only swimmable lakes. Hire a canoe to slowly paddle along the shores and go hiking or horseback riding through the cypress and oak forests.
