One of the most desired destinations for children (but not only for them) is Orlando, Florida, because of the theme parks and the famous Disney.
Every year the news arrives and some movies come to life in this magical world that enchants children and adults. This is the case of Pandora, the Avatar, which was recently opened at Disney Animal Kingdom.
In addition to this novelty, a water park called Volcano Bay also opens the doors to the public in the Universal Studios complex.
These two Orlando novelties arrive along with more gastronomic and hotel options, which are always surprising in the city. Let’s get to know what’s new?
