Guide To Orlando
There's not much sedate about the entertainment in Orlando .everything is pretty much out of the ordinary and beyond your wildest dreams. But, hey, why not, isn't this the land of imagination and make believe? Who needs the "real world" when you are on vacation or in town for business. Isn't it okay just to escape reality for even a little while?

If you can envision it, you will probably find it here. Nearly all of the theme parks have special evening shows. Universal Studios, for example, has a great selection of restaurants and entertainment at its CityWalk so there's really no need to leave the park after dark. Hotels close to Universal include the Radisson Barcelo Hotel, Sierra Suites Convention Center , and Comfort Suites Universal.

Disney is known for some magical happenings after dark including its "SpectroMagic" Parade which takes place on certain nights. Every conceivable form of illumination - from rainbows of colored lights to dizzying arrays of fiber optics - light up the night. Mickey and friends star in this magical, glittering spectacle featuring half a million lights. Another evening attraction at the park is "Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams" where the Magic Kingdom Park is illuminated by a fireworks extravaganza narrated by none other than the inimitable Jiminy Cricket.

Dinner shows are very popular in Orlando , and Arabian Nights is considered the best show in town. It all begins with an elaborate palace with seating for more than 1,200. The dinner show includes an Arabian princess, genie, chariot race, square dan cing on horseback, and gypsy acrobatics. Another spot for some out-of-the-ordinary entertainment is Medieval Times, an extravaganza featuring 30 horses, knights, maidens, jousting, and more ( Sheraton's Vistana Resort is nearby). The hearty medieval fare is served at long family-style tables surrounded non-stop action. Other area dinner shows include a Polynesian Luau, Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, Gangster show, and more.

If you're looking for some adults-only after-dinner entertainment, make arrangements for a babysitter, and then head on over to a comedy club or lounge with pretty much any type of music you prefer from country to jazz, disco, blues, Motown, and even Jimmy Buffet style tunes. You will even come across a wide variety of bars and pubs with special themes as well. The Radisson Inn Lake Buena Vista is near the House of Blues.

And some say you haven't seen real imagination until you visit Cirque du Soleil's show La Nouba . The performance is 90 minutes of extraordinary acrobatics, avant-garde staging, costumes, and choreography with original music performed by a live orchestra. A cast of 72 international performers takes the stage in this specially constructed, 70,000-square-ft venue.

If something more down-to-earth is your style, there are always the movie theaters (the Best Western Movieland is just one mile from a movie theater); in-room movie channels (the Hampton Inn Lake Buena Vista, the Sleep Inn Convention Center, and the Clarion Suites Lake Buena Vista have a good selection of cable channels); and game rooms at hotels like the Sleep Inn & Suites Universal and the Clarion Suites Resort World. If your kids just can't keep off the Internet, be sure to select a hotel like the Best Western Airport Inn which has a business center with high-speed Internet access.

Freebies are always possible, and a number of hotels have complimentary manager's cocktail parties and receptions where you can get some nibbles and drinks on the house. The Homewood Suites by Hilton and the Hawthorn Suites Universal both offer these.

And sometimes, entertaining the kids involve nothing more then letting them splash around in the pool, play shuffleboard, or enjoy the hotel's playground. The Caribe Royal Resort, for example, has a 250,000-gallon free-form pool which is quite the rage with the kids.

It's all about creativity here.proprietors here feel the need to set themselves apart and wow the audience because people who come to Orlando have some big expectations and they will definitely not leave disappointed. Entertainment is the name of the game in Orlando!
