About Thornton Park & Lake Eola
Orlando's three main parks are Universal Studios, Sea World, and Disney World (actually located in Lake Buena Vista). Universal Studios includes the newer Islands of Adventure and the Amazing World of Harry Potter, where you feel as though you've stepped into the movie. At Sea World you can sit in the splash zone for a Shamu show and learn about animal conservation. Orlando also has smaller theme parks worth visiting. Discovery Cove lets you spend the day in a wetsuit, swimming with dolphins and sealife—a much more personal experience than Sea World. Gatorland features over 3,000 alligators and nearly 100 crocodiles, as well as death-defying stunts.

Theme parks draw crowds to Orlando, especially Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. But beyond Cinderella's castle, Shamu's water tank, and Harry Potter's world of wizardry are Orlando's Florida Citrus Bowl stadium, fragrant tropical Leu Gardens, Ivanhoe Village cultural attractions, and a tasty new Chinatown.
