Are you planning a trip to Disney and want to do something with your family other than visit a theme park?
Then plan on having a fun family adventure in Orlando.
Most people who visit Disney don’t venture beyond the Disney property and are not aware of how great the real Orlando is to visit.
The City of Orlando is called “City Beautiful” because there are so many wonderful things to do around town. Here are a couple of quick day trip family adventures for consideration during your Disney stay.
Lake Eola Downtown Orlando:
Lake Eola Orlando
Lake Eola is an unchanging emblem of Downtown Orlando. Its majestic fountain and the graceful swan boats that you can rent, make Lake Eola an exceptional day trip. Also, make sure to walk the entire circle to view the art sculptures surrounding the park. For the younger kids, there is a wonderful playground overlooking the lake on the south end. Start or end your lake visit with lunch or dinner in the Thornton Park District close by. We’re happy to make suggestions or book reservations for your meal.
If, by chance, you are lucky enough to visit the lake on a Sunday morning or early afternoon, you and your family can also experience a unique weekly Farmers Market on the south end of the lake. The market is the place for great local food, music and crafts.

DR. PHILLIPS CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
There is nothing else like it and it has truly changed the face
of downtown Orlando. It is an amazing feat of design, architecture, and construction, inspired by the creative energy of the people who live, work, and visit here.
Built specifically for families who love to be entertained by performing arts events, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is the place to go. Let us help you book a special event, such as an original Broadway show, ballet, concerts, and more, during your Disney visit. Be sure to include an exceptional dining experience in Downtown Orlando—The Boheme restaurant, located in the unique Grand Bohemian Hotel across the street from the center.

Below are a couple of recent reviews for My VIP Tour:
“When we first booked our WDW holiday last year we suddenly felt completely overwhelmed when we saw the Disney app! We were first timers taking our 6 year old girl for 8 days and wanted to try to see and do everything but felt lost by how confusing it all seemed to be. Then we were put in touch with Katie who runs My VIP Tour and our lives changed! She literally sorted everything for us overnight. She was the voice of calm at the end of the phone and we could contact her at any time to amend or change our booking choices. My husband and I started to relax and actually feel excited!
And then when we arrived, we met our wonderful tour guide Sam (who is an angel and now one of the family!) and she seamlessly whisked us around Hollywood Studios for one day and Magic Kingdom for another, maximizing our time and allowing us to see and do things we simply could never have managed on our own. The highlight for us was when we got to meet Mickey and walked past lots of tired, grumpy people waiting in a 75 min queue to see him and we were whisked straight in by Sam!! My husband turned to me at one point and said – we can just switch off and relax!! And that was all because of Katie, Sam and My VIP Tour. Nothing is too much trouble. They completely transformed our Disney experience. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“I cannot speak more highly of Cori and Christina from My VIP Tour. Cori and Christina were so organized, friendly and helpful and navigated our large family through Epcot, The Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. They even planned our fabulous day at Animal Kingdom when they were not with us that we really appreciated. Not only did they make the trip so smooth and efficient, they added so many extra special touches that made the trip exceptional. We were constantly cancelling and booking attractions on the go and Cori and Christina were on top of everything. Katie was so easy and friendly to deal with during the initial planning stages of the trip and then to have Cori and Christina as our guides made the entire experience truly exceptional. Thank you Katie, Cori and Christina for our best family vacation ever!”

Walt Disney World recently announced two highly anticipated expansions at their D23 2015 Expo: Avatar Land at Animal Kingdom, and Star Wars Land at Hollywood Studios. Disney has released new information about the additions to the parks, and we have all the details!
Two rides have been announced so far for Avatar’s Land, “Pandora”, each based on the movie.
- Na’vi River Journey: Guests will embark on an adventure through Pandora on a canoe travelling on the ‘Sacred River’. On either side of the river boasts a beautiful bioluminescent rainforest and a Na’vi shaman, “who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music,” appears at the end of the ride, according to the official Disney Parks Blog.
- Avatar: Flight of Passage: A simulator ride will take guests through the land of Pandora, learning the travel of flight on Banshees.
Star Wars Land: Construction on Star Wars Land planned for early next year, Disney has announced some new Star Wars experiences coming up at Hollywood Studios starting December 1st.
- “Star Wars” Launch Bay: Special exhibits that include behind-the-scenes and sneak peak viewings of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, with a chance to meet Chewbacca and Darth Vader.
- “Jedi-Training: Trials of the Temple” will be a new site for training sessions that take place in an Ancient Jedi Temple where they will face Darth Vader and new “Star Wars” Villains.
- “Star Tours- The Adventures Continue” will be inspired off of the upcoming film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Each guest, during the opening months, will experience the new adventure.
Disney has also announced that ‘Star Wars Weekends’ will not be a part of the 2016 event calendar. However, with the new Star Wars additions to Hollywood Studios, guests are able to enjoy the experience daily.

We all share great expectations of a wonderful holiday— exactly like the Mickey and Minnie Mouse Thanksgiving dinner, shown above. We certainly agree. Thanksgiving is a great time for family and friends to visit Orlando and Disney.
But be warned! Everyone is thinking the same exact thing. So, if you’re planning to visit Disney and Orlando during Thanksgiving 2015, you should know that it is one of the busiest times of year and the parks are extremely crowded.
So, how can you still make your Disney Thanksgiving special and free from stress? Hire a Private Disney Tour Guide and let My VIP Tour plan your itinerary. One of our experienced Disney Guides will help you get the most out of your day at the parks and you’ll enjoy a care free experience with minimal wait times at every attraction. We have the inside scoop on all of the best restaurants and will make reservations for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.
One of the best parts of My VIP Tour is that your family will experience more in just a few days than a regular family would experience in an entire week. Your family will get to meet your children’s favorite characters, enjoy the best seats at the shows and parades and you’ll experience every ride on your “Bucket List.” You’ll get to do all of those things with minimal wait times. Whether it’s meeting Anna & Elsa or riding the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train your VIP Guide will make it happen.
You can take advantage of My VIP Tours services for your evening park adventures, too. Let us take care of parade or show seating for your entire party while you enjoy the rest of the park.
Say goodbye to theme park maps and long lines and enjoy a true VIP vacation.
