Please don't mislead first time guests. Busch Gardens is not an Orlando theme park. We all should know it's in Tampa.
Busch Gardens is in Tampa, but it is considered an Orlando area theme park. It's only about an hour from Disney.
So Daytona is an Orlando area beach and NASCAR race track? It's also only about an hour away. I guess that makes Mount Dora, Orlando's retirement community. Tampa is not Orlando. Tampa is Tampa a different city. Also Disney is not in Orlando either, but in the neighboring city of Lake Buena Vista.
Look when guests from the Uk visit Florida on a reg visit they don't just do the Orlando theme parks. But also Busch Gardens,KSC and Legoland. I'm going next year for the first time since 2011 and sites like this and the DIBB really do help keep us Brits upto date in what's going on in the parks.
