Fun Spot America#12 in Best Things To Do in Orlando-Walt Disney World
Although these amusement parks are not as well-known as those found at SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, Fun Spot offers a plethora of rides, including carousels, go-karts, tea cups and Ferris wheels. For thrill-seekers, Fun Spot America even features a virtual reality rollercoaster and a wooden rollercoaster, both of which are the only ones available in the city.
Recent visitors give the park high parks and say lines are short, service is good and that Fun Spot America is a more budget-conscious option for the area. Single-day passes cost $44.95 when purchased online and give visitors access to most rides and the Gatorland-affiliated Gator Spot.
Fun Spot America's Orlando theme park is situated two blocks from International Drive, while the brand's Kissimmee location can be found within a short drive of Walt Disney World's theme parks and accommodations. The Orlando locale is accessible via LYNX's Nos. 8, 37, 42, 304 and 305 buses, as well as I-RIDE Trolley's 1A stop on the Red Line; Fun Spot America in Kissimmee can be reached by taking the Nos. 55 or 56 LYNX routes. Free parking, restrooms, grab-and-go eateries and shops are available at both parks. Park hours vary by day, but each location is generally open between 10 a.m. and midnight.

#1 Walt Disney World Resort
Excessive, exhausting and expensive, Walt Disney World Resort is above all else enchanting. Composed of four theme parks (the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom), two water parks (Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach), more than two dozen hotels and the Disney Springs shopping, dining and entertainment complex, this sprawling property features iconic sights and rides like Cinderella Castle, "it's a small world," Spaceship Earth, Toy Story Land and Pandora – The World of Avatar. Even Anaheim's Disneyland can't compete, according to some.
Of course, there is one major drawback. Walt Disney World park tickets are expensive, regardless of whether you're visiting for just a day (single-day tickets for kids and adults ages 10 and older start at $109). Meanwhile, one-day water park tickets start at $64 for adults 10 and older. Most suggest you visit this expansive property over the course of several days to justify the high entrance fees. If you have limited time, consider skipping the parks in favor of exploring Disney Springs, which is free to visit.
