Orlando — There's more to Orlando than Mickey Mouse. While its theme-park thrills and character encounters appeal to children of all ages, its abundant nightlife, lakeside parks, and shopping options make grown-up wishes come true, too. To experience the city behind the artifice, allow time for neighborhoods beyond the attractions, particularly downtown residential areas and Winter Park; that's where you'll discover the one-of-a-kind bistros, shops, and museums equally beloved by locals and visitors. For information on the Disney theme parks, see our Walt Disney World Travel Guide.
