Try wekiwa springs next time its the river you want not the lake. It’s kinda out in the middle of nowhere but worth the trip as the entire area is part of the aquifer system. Basically rain and water go underground filtering through tons of limestone to create a super clear and super pure water source. The springs help provide that water. Just there are sections grated off because of open underground caves just stay away from those. Try walking lake eola on Sundays as the farmers market pops up around that time and you can try local foods plus that area is pretty well built up in the last few years with new restaurants and stores. Just watch the swans as they can get kinda messy on you. Mount Dora is a sorta ok place but it’s a heavily British type area with lots of British type restaurants but good. Try to get a Korean bbq restaurant next time as it’s different as you do cook your own food but it’s kinda fun, the choices usually around Orlando are Izziban which isn’t that good or korea house which is better. I would look up how to do Korean bbq first to get an idea of how to do it as many first timers tend to have to be taught as there is a bit of a procedure to follow, honestly look up mike Chen as he does have a series on Korean bbq and sorta a how to, just prepare your tastebuds for a bit of a shock if you never had it.

I have done Disney and Orlando a few times. But there is a whole world to see and explore. When I went, loved staying on Idrive. Loads to do and lovely in the Evenings as well.

You are recommending some places so far away from Orlando. 30 minutes to 1 hour!? Most tourists are not driving that far...

I really enjoyed your video. Love Florida! I really appreciate that you show your viewers that there is more to Orlando than just Mickey Mouse and Co.! I visited St. Pete/Clearwater recently - another beautiful part of the state! Keep up the great videos! See you in our travels...

Great job! I'm from Orlando and I always try to tell people to come see the real Orlando. I highly recommend Gatorland, and the scenic boat tour in Winter Park. (I grew up there.) There is also a wide array of cultural cuisine from Carribean cuisine to Lebanese and everything in between. I'm so glad you mentioned Winter Garden because I've never heard it mentioned in a travel video before. Check out Old Town and Medieval Times for a fun family experience as well. Also, come and see the many museums that are in the Winter Park area. Some of them are donations only. We have live comedy shows and local theatre, sports shows, and the Kennedy Space Center(Titusville, but still!). Try Cloak and Blaster, the gaming restaurant or Player 1 Video Game bar! Nothing like you've ever experienced. Winter Park also has a farmers market on the weekend. Come to Orlando!! We'd love to see you! Katie, thanks for a great video. You should defintely do a few more on this topic, because we have visitors from every country and they could use a video like this!

I have a trip to Orlando coming up in a few days but it’s literally a quick 1 and a half day trip for a concert. If I had a bigger budget I would have stayed a few extra days to check some of these places out. Definitely going to make time to do the wheel at icon park though

Good but not the best top ten. What about wiki springs and tubeing down real lazy rivers. There's 3 wiki springs areas and a rainforest walk. Also so much more only local know about. Maybe I should do a top ten 👍

Something she didnt mention was Fun Spot in Orlando, home of Olando's only wooden rollercoaster. You can go in the evening and get a wrist band for a discounted price, there is no wait times for rides hardley and they have 3 go kart tracks and a slick tack along with carnival rides and a sky coaster. Fun Spot is definitely worth a visit, it is open til midnight and 8pm is a good time to arrive. My 6 year old enjoyed the small steel rollercoaster there over and over and the wooden rollercoaster is very smooth for a wooden coaster.

Tip: I am from Dallas, a place full of stress and traffic. GPS to avoid highways and tolls, tolls will rack up and highways are crowded and non moving. You will thank me.

Brilliant video! My husband and I also love Orlando, there is something about it that always brings us back! We have a daughter and we have been lucky enough to spend her 1st and 2nd birthday out there and hoping to do the same for her 3rd next year 😂

Out of interest what are your top 3 restaurants!? Always looking to try somewhere new, although you cant beat a bit of cheesecake factory! 🤤

Hi Katie, we are hoping to go to Orlando next year with our 3 girls, would love to see a “what to pack” video. Sounds silly but always good to get opinions from someone who has been xx

Michelle Finney

Would love a video on how you book your holiday, ie do you do a package or arrange hotel, flights separately etc? I’m desperate to go next year but we have 4 children and none are really theme park lovers so I’m not sure if it’s worth it. The cost is humongous too and I’ve no idea where to start! I get overwhelmed when I look online with the choice and the cost so I don’t really get anywhere. The kids are 5, 11 twins and 12. Thank you, love your videos xx

If your kiddos are older, I would say middle school and up, I might try the Escapology, www.escapology.com/en/orlando-fl/. I went there for a work thing around the same time you were visiting Disney. It's a lot of fun and a different thing to do.
