Flights And Sights
Flying To Orlando With American Airlines
Enjoy big-time family fun in the Florida sun when you take an American Airlines flight to Orlando. From state-of-the-art theme parks to wild-animal encounters, it's a thrill a minute when you fly to Orlando with American Airlines.
Play in the Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom is the heart of the venerable theme park that is Disney World. From the rocket-to-Mars thrills in Epcot to jungle safaris in the Animal Kingdom to longtime favorites like the Haunted House and Space Mountain, Disney World is an exhilarating adventure for kids of all ages. The nightly fireworks that light up the sky over Cinderella's Castle are pure enchantment.
Discover movie magic at Universal Orlando
The focus at this ultra-sleek theme park and resort is Hollywood—pass through the gates of Hogwarts Castle in the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" for soaring rides, shopping, and wizard-approved dining, or venture into Jurassic Park for spine-tingling dino encounters.
Give into the old-fashioned fun at Gatorland
A giddy survivor of the throwback parks that once dotted the Florida swamp. Located between Orlando and Kissimmee, Gatorland offers such kitschy shows as "Gator Jumparoo"—a park favorite since 1949—and a charming train ride. And who can resist the giant gator teeth that serve as the park's front door?
Kiss a dolphin at SeaWorld
Shamu the killer whale may still be the star of this 200-acre marine park, but SeaWorld has exploded with attractions to rival Orlando's mega parks. Take a high-tech water ride on Journey to Atlantis, or get an adrenaline rush on Kraken, a floorless roller coaster that sports seven inversions.
Thrill to an out-of-this-world space experience at Kennedy Space Center
Head east from Orlando to Cape Canaveral for an exciting visit to the Kennedy Space Center, where you can take a ride on an interactive space flight simulator, stare in awe at a massive Saturn V rocket, and see astronaut Alan Shepard's Apollo 14 space suit.

More Things to Do in Orlando
Follow American Airlines as we go off the beaten path to discover more things to do in and around Orlando. Visit the citrus groves that once dominated the landscape, dine on fresh Florida seafood and discover the slower rhythms of central Florida. American is with you every step of the way.
Get real in downtown Orlando
Orlando is home to velvety green spaces, glass-and-steel high rises, and sleepy residential neighborhoods shaded in a canopy of live oaks. Off the beaten path parks include family-friendly Lake Eola Park, where you can cruise the sparkling lake in a swan pedal boat.
Pick your own citrus fruit
Try to conjure a time when the only thing around you were fragrant citrus groves. Follow the heady scent of orange blossoms along U.S. 27 on Orlando's western edge and you'll discover pick-your-own fruit groves dotting the spine of central Florida's rolling citrus country. The Showcase of Citrus, on the 2,500-acre Arnold Groves and Ranch, grows some 50 varieties of citrus fruit, including pick-your-own Valencia oranges, Ruby Red grapefruit and Honey Bell tangelos.
Hit the golf course
Central Florida's sunny, temperate year-round climate makes it a prime golfing destination, and with some 150 courses dotting the Orlando area, it's easy to find a manicured swath of green to practice your swing. Disney alone has four excellent 18-hole golf courses—not to mention a number of adorable mini-golf courses for the little ones.
Enjoy a relaxing spa treatment
Orlando has a range of spa offerings, from over-the-top luxury pampering at five-star hotels to rejuvenating body treatments at day spas throughout the city. Relax in the sumptuous surrounds of the Ritz-Carlton Spa or opt for a therapeutic massage at Serendipity Salon and Day Spa.
See the Peabody ducks
Five mallards waddle into the Peabody Orlando hotel lobby every morning to the rousing sounds of John Philip Sousa's "King Cotton March" and splash about in the marble fountain for the duration of the day. In the afternoon, it's back onto the elevator and up to the ducks' fourth-floor "penthouse." That, more or less, is the show—and it's fun and absolutely free!
