Orlando entertainment at night
The nightlife in Orlando and the surrounding area is certainly not boring. The word boring is never used in this part of the world. After spending a tiring day at one of Orlando’s many theme parks or attractions, you’d be forgiven for wanting an early night to recover — right. Well, wrong. You may be tired and have blisters on your feet, but one thing is for sure: it’s time to get out there and party.
Now parties here in Orlando come in all shapes and sizes. There are many nightclubs and lively bars to enjoy, or perhaps you prefer to eat and relax with your family at one of the hundreds of themed restaurants throughout Orlando.
Dinner shows are very popular in Orlando, with shows like Medieval Times and ‘Capone Dinner and Show.’
International Drive in Orlando has many charming restaurants and bars to enjoy. You will notice that many of these bars are themed. This isn’t just a theme around the type of food they serve (e.g., Mexican). It’s more of a broader piece; for example, if you visit Cafe Tu-Tu Tango, you’ll be surrounded by artists painting live for you while you eat or fire eaters performing a few steps away. There’s the new Ice Bar on International Drive where everything (yes, you guessed it) is made Of ice.
Universal Orlando has its entertainment area called Universal City Walk, with plenty of colorful restaurants and bars, including the famous Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Universal Orlando is conveniently located on Universal Boulevard, next to International Drive.
Walt Disney World also has a lot of nightlife with its area called Downtown Disney. It features huge standout restaurants with something for everyone. We highly recommend T Rex with its life-size dinosaurs that come to life. Kids and adults alike will love it.
Don’t forget to visit the old town of Kissimmee on Friday and Saturday evenings. Here you will see a parade of modified cars and motorcycles plus live bands and lots of fun. The most amazing thing about visiting Kissimmee is how it transports you back in time to the 1950s. Yes, you can see that this part of town (funnily enough called Old Town) still has all the old shop fronts from the ’50s plus the era’s sounds playing from loudspeakers as you walk by. A must-see.
So that’s just a sampling of what Orlando has to offer in terms of nightlife.
Orlando is fun during the day and a great part at night.
