Though it is most often applied as educational tours, school travel takes on a variety of forms. And there is no better choice than Orlando for fun, excitement, and thrills. It is, after all, the theme park capital of the world.
Don’t underestimate Orlando, however, for education. In the midst of its amazing innovation and creativity, students can learn a lot. Complementing many of Orlando’s famous parks, the Disney YES Program educates and inspires students through the work of Disney Imagineers. The program focuses on humanities, life management, natural or physical sciences. If you’re looking to incorporate powerful educational tours with a thrilling Orlando experience, this is the way to do it.
Another educational center near Orlando is NASA. A tour of the Kennedy Space Center is sure to inspire students and ignite their interest in science, astronomy, invention, mathematics, and exploration. This center was designed to work with the Florida landscape around it, and the tour is highly memorable.
Besides all this, Orlando is absolutely the destination for thrills. Disney offers four major theme parks. Every student will be familiar with the iconic sights and landmark rides in the Magic Kingdom. World cultures and innovation share space in the fascinating Epcot Center. Pop culture and the film industry reign supreme in Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom celebrates those with whom we share the planet. Disney offers two water parks, Downtown Disney, and an indoor version of a theme park as well – and this is just the beginning.
For further thrills, you can turn to the other entertainment powerhouse in Orlando: Universal Studios. Go behind-the-scenes of many favorite films in this park. And in Islands of Adventure, you can celebrate superheroes, comic book characters, and more through thrilling, highly-innovative roller coasters and rides. Universal adds its own water parks to the mix.
Obviously, this is enough to over-fill any itinerary, but there’s still more. Orlando school travel can include the refreshing oasis and exciting ocean-life performances of Sea World. Plus, you can’t go to Florida without visiting some of its sugar-white sand on the beaches.
