I traveled to Orlando on my vacation last month, this is a beautiful city located in

Florida USA, it has many theme parks. Its most famous place is Walt Disney World,
which is made up of parks, such as Magic Kingdom and Epcot, as well as water
parks. In another important destination, Universal Orlando, are Universal Studios
and Islands of Adventure, among which is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The weather was too nice besides there are several train routes that run through
the city and buses that provide their services by offering two bus lines that make
different routes, both regional and interurban.

What I liked most was Walt Disney World which has more than 30 hotel
complexes, 4 large amusement parks, 8 golf courses and 3 water parks. The costs
are quite high but it is the place where both children and adults will find fun. One
of the must-see shows is that of the lion king in the Anima World
