Most people think of Orlando and think of Disney World or Universal Studios. And a trip to these attractions makes a wonderful vacation experience. But what do you do after you get your fill of Mickey Mouse? Or in the wintertime when the parks close early, what do you do with all those hours between park closing and bedtime?
Believe it or not, Orlando has many more attractions. They are not as big or as glamorous as Disney World or Universal Studios but they make for every pleasant day trips and evening excursions.
For instance, if you find yourself with your evenings free, consider a Dinner Theater experience. There are several in Orlando and they are all an excellent and entertaining way to experience a dinner event. Lets look at some of the more famous and enjoyable ones.
