When you take a vacation, one of the most important things to do before you go is plan all the different things you will see and do. Most of the time, the first thing people think of when they think of Orlando, Florida they think of Disneyworld, Epcot, Magic Kingdom, MGM Studio, or Animal Kingdom. But there is more to Orlando, Florida than meets the eye. On of the most intriguing non-Disney things to do in Orlando are the Arabian Nights Dinner Theater.
This "equestrian theater" includes amazing horses and performers prepared to perform in front of 1200 people. The stunts are magical and the horses beautiful. This is a definite must see for anyone traveling to the Orlando area.
Another equestrian-themed treat is Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. An enticing dinner theater, this show entertains with comedy, music and incredible action between man and horse. There is even ostrich racing! In addition to these entertaining options, Orlando, Florida also offers a massive amount of ecotourism.
You can start your ecotourism tour with Dolphins Plus. Dolphins Plus gives you a glimpse of the Florida Everglades where you will experience a wide variety of Florida wildlife such as birds and alligators. Toward the end of the day you can enjoy a swim with the dolphins, an experience you will never forget. Another opportunity to experience Florida ecotourism is the Florida Adventure Tour. The day will begin with a breakfast over King's Bay. On this trip you will enjoy swimming with the manatees.
In addition, this trip includes a wildlife jeep safari waiting to entertain you. If you've had enough of ecotourism and dinner theaters, another option as a part of the Orlando vacation for those who want educational options are museums. Three such museums are the Morse Museum of American Art, the Orlando Museum of Art, and the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. The Morse Museums offers a permanent collection of Tiffany glass and 19th century American paintings.
The Orlando Museum of Art offers impressionist art and ancient American Art while the Cornell Fine Arts Museum offers several different types of collections. .
