Orlando, Florida
Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin

Putting the ‘Do’ in Orlando

Before you know it you will be packing your bags for Orlando with your mind both reflecting upon and anticipating the transformation and evolution of your career. You will spend May 1st-4th networking with your peers in the industry, taking in presentations, and enriching your career in various ways. But, at some point, you will step away with the intention of experiencing the city. We’re here to help you do that. We’ve established a list of things that you should make a point to do while you are in town.

Discovery Cove
Rated the #1 attraction in Orlando by, Discovery Cove presents an opportunity for you to not only step away from work for a moment, but to immerse yourself in aquatic life. The park’s seemingly boundless options allow you to interact with the creatures that make up the aquatic ecosystem from the creatures that live beneath the surface and those that fly above it. Hang out with dolphins and snorkel among fish that will expand your brain’s color wheel tenfold, but be sure to check out the Explorer’s Aviary as well. If it sounds a lot like SeaWorld, it’s because a Discovery Cove Day Resort package includes unlimited admission to SeaWorld and Aquatica (the SeaWorld waterpark) as well.

Walt Disney World
Of course, you will be staying in Walt Disney World®, but we hope you venture beyond the Swan and Dolphin. The sprawling complex allows you to go around the world, explore nature, blizzards and typhoons, eating, drinking, dancing, golfing—you’ll find it all in front of you when you step outside your hotel. When you aren’t listening to a motivational speech or reviewing poster abstracts, there will be plenty to explore within Walt Disney World® alone.  For more info:

There are over 20 golf courses in the area for you to visist. While you can’t be expected to play 360 holes of golf with convention going on, this would be the place to try! With convention taking place in early May, it will be prime season to hit the links (not that you need to be reminded, but be sure to bring a visor and sunscreen). If you are a golf enthusiast, you are going to love this year’s convention site. For a list of all the golf courses in the area, check here:

Kennedy Space Center
What better way to get away from it all for a few hours than to take yourself to the brink of space? The Kennedy Space Center presents an opportunity for you to get a behind-the-scenes look at how NASA explores the cosmos. Between the Space Shuttle Atlantis, Astronaut Training Experience, and Lunch with an Astronaut, you’ll find yourself filled with extraterrestrial knowledge after leaving the space center. For more info:

Lake Eola Park
This park is positioned as the oasis in the heart of downtown Orlando. For a few quiet hours between yourself and the lake’s swans, take a stroll down Rosalind Avenue. Take swan boats or gondolas out onto the lake for fun, or gaze upon the Lake Eola Fountain, which is representative of the city itself, as its logo. There is plenty to do at Lake Eola Park, and most importantly, there is plenty that you can simply do there for free. If you’d like to find out more about Lake Eola Park, check here:
