Theme Park News

Spring at Walt Disney World avoids the Busy seasonHave you stepped outside yet to smell the spring flowers? It’s certainly the perfect weather to do so with temps at just the right cool. This weather won’t last long before Orlando’s heats up this summer, so we suggest taking advantage of the perfect conditions now and exploring Orlando. Here are Orlando Fun Tickets’ top outdoor activities and places to visit in spring:

Fun Spot Attractions – Nothing says outdoor fun like a theme park and at Fun Spot Attractions you’ll be able to fill your lungs with the fresh spring air as you scream your way down the world’s tallest Skycoaster! You’ll also be able to feel what it’s like to be a bird flying high in this incredible weather on Screamin’ Eagles and catch a cool breeze as you swing high in the sky on the attraction Yo-Yo. And of course you can come down from the sky and enjoy some outdoor land fun on one of Fun Spot’s many bumper car or Go-Kart rides.

Downtown Disney ® - A shopping promenade, world-class restaurants and plenty of outdoor attractions make up Disney’s Downtown area that’s why it’s a great spot to enjoy Orlando’s gorgeous spring weather. Guests can reel in the outdoor fun and enjoy a guided fishing excursion out on Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon; captain a mini powerboat, Boston Whaler or Sun Tracker on one of Walt Disney World’s ® many waterways; cruise your way into spring with one of Downtown Disney’s ® specialty cruises or just stroll along the waterfront and let the cool wind whip through your hair!

Universal’s CityWalk – It’s called The Entertainment Capital of Orlando and for good reason. With tons of restaurants, bars and nightclubs and live music Universal’s CityWalk is the perfect spot to enjoy a night on the town. And right now, it’s also the perfect spot to explore Orlando outdoors with its many outdoor restaurants like Pat O’Brien’s, Margaritaville and nightclubs like Red Coconut Club, which offers an outdoor balcony high above the streets of CityWalk. If you brought along the family, enjoy a round of mini-golf at the all-new Hollywood Drive-In Golf and putt your way through silly horror and sci-fi movies of the 1960’s while enjoying Orlando’s not too hot, not too cold weather. Plus, don’t miss the biggest bash this side of the bayou at Universal’s Mardi Gras After-Party where the streets will be filled with music, beads and tons of outdoor fun!

Universal Orlando – With great weather and short lines before summer, the theme parks are great to visit during spring. Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios with the Mardi Gras events happening every weekend will be a blast for families looking to have a fun weekend or short trip. The cool weather makes theme park trekking easier for everyone in your party. Artists coming up in the Mardi Gras concert lineup include Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Kool & the Gang, Pitbull, and The All-American Rejects. Suffice it to say, Universal Orlando is great fun this spring.

SeaWorld & Busch Gardens – While all of Orlando is feeling the comfortable cool weather with Sunny skies, SeaWorld Orlando also boasts something very unique this spring.  Opening May 24, get ready to step into the Arctic with Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, a brand new ride experience that brings families into the world of Penguins. Also, walking around SeaWorld is better than ever in springtime. Visit all the animals, see all the shows, and learn more with this historically calm season before the summer rush.
