Orlando Scene All the big, bombastic theme parks that kids dream about, with plenty to wow adults, too. Orlando is a city that runs on Disney Magic—it’s almost become shorthand for the Magic Kingdom Park. And that’s just the big opening number on the area’s Disney parade, which includes Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and even themed resorts. If that isn’t enough abracadabra, families can head to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter part of Universal. But Orlando isn’t all high-octane activities. Those seeking quiet can take refuge in the natural beauty of Harry P. Leu Gardens or one of many day spas. And Orlando’s James Beard-nominated restaurants are a far cry from fairground food.
