Other Orlando attractions

LEGO sea serpent at Downtown Disney in Orlando, FloridaAlthough Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom get most of the attention of Disney visitors, there are a variety of things to do in the Orlando Area that are outside of four giant theme parks of Walt Disney World.

Check out one of Disney's awesome water parks, or spend some time in Downtown Disney. You'll find plenty to enjoy!


Disney Water parks

Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher at Disney's Blizzard Beach water parkIf you're looking to venture beyond the four great theme parks of Walt Disney World, check out Disney's water parks: Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. If you get the "Water parks & more" option on your Disney tickets, you'll get a visit to one of the 'extra' attractions for each day of your park pass.

Both of Disney's water parks offer a variety of water slides, a wave pool, and several other attractions that will give you plenty to do for an entire day- or even for a couple of days if you're spending a week (or more) at Walt Disney World.

Both water parks offer activities for adults, teens, tweens, and younger kids too. Take a look at our water parks pages to learn more about Typhoon Lagoon & Blizzard Beach!

Typhoon Lagoon - Disney's original water park features a huge wave pool, a beautiful beach, and tons of great water slides!
Blizzard Beach - A snowstorm has hit Central Florida, and up springs a ski resort! Get ready for Summit Plummet!

Downtown Disney

The streets and shops of Downtown DisneyDowntown Disney has certainly come a long way from its humble beginnings as a convenience store for Orlando area guests. It has evolved into an enormous collection of shops, shows, restaurants, and just plain fun. With something to do for everyone, it's a great place for the entire family.

Downtown Disney is divided into three unique areas: West Side, Marketplace, and Pleasure Island, all linked by walking paths, busses, or ferry service. You can expect pretty good crowds all day long, and parking can be a challenge. The nighttime is when Downtown Disney really comes alive! It's a great place to visit on the day you arrive at Walt Disney World, or any time you're planning a non-park day.

West Side - Downtown Disney West side is home to restaurants and shops, and even a 24-screen theater complex! It's also home to two of Downtown Disney's HOTTEST attractions!
Marketplace - Shop 'til you drop at Downtown Disney Marketplace! It's home to some very cool little (and not so little) stores that are in some cases unique to Disney.
Pleasure Island - Pleasure Island still seems to be searching for its niche in the world of Downtown Disney. Originally home to many nightclubs and bars, it never completely caught on. Disney has made many recent changes to this area as it seeks to revive Pleasure Island.
