Where to go to get dinner and a show while vacationing in Orlando
For nearly 40 years now, it's been a key component of a Central Florida vacation . That - for one night - you take a break from the theme parks and then head indoors to enjoy a bit of dinner theater . Of course, the real pioneer of this Orlando entertainment tradition is the Hoop Dee Doo Revue. Which...

Ready to go rabbit hunting? Then let's begin the Disney World Bunny Hop
Let me guess. You're slightly bummed that you didn't get to see the Easter Bunny (as well as the lovely Mrs. Bunny) when they made their short, seasonal visit to the Magic Kingdom this past weekend.

"Festival of the Lion King" show at Disney's Animal Kingdom proves that recycling can be fun
Care to guess which creatures are the most popular at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park? The answer may surprise you. It's not those real lions, elephants and giraffes that you can see while rolling across the faux-African savanna aboard Kilimanjaro Safaris. But - rather - those all-too-human...

Enjoy the return of Warm Weather with a 4-Day Dream Pass
First, let’s start with the news that everyone has been waiting to hear: Florida’s freak cold snap appears to be over. After this past weekend, where the temperatures got so low that a few spots in Central Florida had scattered snow flurries, we’ll be back in the 60’s later today and the mid-to-high...

A Time of Change for Orlando Theme Parks
With just hours to spare ‘til 2009 gives way to 2010, I thought that it might be interesting to review the year from the Orlando Fun Tickets point-of-view. 2009 got off to a pretty fast start with tens of thousands of runners pouring into the area January 8 – 11th to take part in the Walt Disney World...

Do you ever wonder what became of Splendid China Florida?
What with Pleasure Island closing this weekend, I've been getting nostalgic for some of the other attractions that Central Florida lost over the years. With perhaps the most bizarre being Splendid China . I don't know how many of you ever got the chance to visit this 76-acre theme park during the 10...

September's the very best time to sea ... er .. see SeaWorld Orlando
You hear that? All over Orlando, the people who work at your favorite theme parks are now heaving a sign of relief. The summer season -- with all its heat, crush & crowds -- is finally over. Which gives us all a bit more breathing room down here. And I mean that literally, folks. When you drop by...

How does Aquatica stack up against Central Florida's other waterparks ?
You'll have to forgive any typos that you find in this month's OFT column. You see, I've been to Aquatica 2 1/2 times over the past month. And -- to be honest -- my fingers are still kind of pruney. But after a month of soft openings, SeaWorld Orlando's waterpark has its official grand opening this past...

Get ready for Central Florida's coming coaster war
As you enter SeaWorld Orlando , it's really hard to miss the thing. Photo by Robert Bish That enormous construction wall that's been erected around the front of this theme park.
