Our next complimentary package is the Entertainment Explorer, available from 13th May 2024, and packed with 5 free Orlando experiences.* Plus, read on for a sneak peek at our other Explorer packages, available for select periods throughout the year...

Overflowing with unforgettable attractions that will leave you craving more, our Entertainment Explorer package showcases five exhilarating Orlando experiences valued at $495 for a family of four.

Kick off your adventure with a thrilling morning or afternoon at Orlando’s Entertainment Destination, Andretti Karting, where you'll engage in epic laser battles for up to an hour before diving into the neon chaos of 120 arcade games with a 1-hour arcade game card.

Next, indulge in the charm of Old Town Kissimmee as you ascend the 85-foot-high Ferris Wheel, treating yourself to panoramic 360-degree views of theme park suburbia. Satisfy your appetite with classic American cuisine at A&W with a combo meal featuring a large fountain drink and your choice of burger, sandwich, or chicken wings.

As night falls, prepare for an evening of endless laughter and delectable delights at the Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show, where unlimited pizza, drinks, and entertainment await. Then, hop aboard the I-Ride Trolley Pass to glide along International Drive, marvelling at the illuminated splendour of Orlando from 400 feet above on the Orlando Eye at ICON Park.

One Constant in All the Change

In a whirlwind of 8 new Explorer packages, one constant remains: the I-Ride Trolley. Luckily, every package includes free access to the I-Ride Trolley for 7 days, allowing you to effortlessly navigate the thrilling attractions along I-Drive. Running along Orlando's bustling International Drive, this trolley grants you easy access to renowned stops like SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica, ICON Park, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, WonderWorks, FunSpot America, and other fun attractions. 

What’s more, some of Orlando’s top restaurants and shopping centres lie on this route, so you can stop for lunch or some retail therapy in between your adventures.

Classic Explorer

Our pioneering Ocean Explorer package is renamed the Classic Explorer, and this timeless favourite is packed with Orlando’s finest offerings, such as free rides, shopping sprees, side-splitting comedy, and a sprinkle of magic as you soar above the Orlando skyline.
