Barefoot beach lover, water sports enthusiast or Walt Disney fan – we’re all of the above and Orlando is a hotbed for all kinds of different attractions. Aside from the balmy Florida climate and beautiful local landscapes, this city also boasts an array of must-not-miss experiences. Check out our favourite Orlando videos for a taste of what’s on offer.
