Orlando’s International Drive consists of 11.1 miles of entertainment, shopping, food, and hotels, and it only continues to grow. Ongoing improvement projects promise to make I-Drive an even more inviting, thrilling place to stay and play.
That said, the northern end of I-Drive doesn't seem to get enough recognition. In an effort to show just how much fun can be had in one very full weekend, a new scavenger hunt will be hosted to promote the offerings of north I-Drive.

It may be hard to believe, but Captain EO will soon be coming back once again for an encore at Epcot.

The last day of operation of the Inside Out preview will be Sunday, July 5, 2015.

On July 1st, the SeaWorld Orlando Animal Rescue Team returned a 106-pound loggerhead sea turtle to Canaveral National Seashore’s Playalinda Beach.
The turtle was rescued in March after being discovered beached and suffering from Debilitated Loggerhead Syndrome (DLS) by a Park Ranger on Playalinda Beach. The loggerhead sea turtle was originally transported to Volusia County Marine Science Center and then brought to SeaWorld Orlando for rehabilitation.

For a limited time, young Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios will soon be able to experience a special transformation inspired by some of their favorite characters as part of the "Frozen Summer Fun" event taking place at the park.
