2. Epcot Tour / Festival
You will be familiar with Walt Disney Studios and Disney Land Florida, but you may not have been privy to the feature-filled Epcot Tour and Festivals.

At the Epcot festival, you can enjoy all kinds of activities, from flower shows and displays to food and wine festivals that bring countries and nations together to celebrate national delicacies. You’ll find yourself divided between Future World and World showcase. The iconic geodesic sphere arrives at the entrance to the Future World in which showcases brilliant stories of the future including new technology and talks on the ever-changing ideas of the future.
If you’re with the kids or grandkids, then that’s no problem either. Epcot is so huge that there is something for all ages. Whether it be the fun playful activities where you can send your younger companions raging, whilst you sneak off to the Festival of the Arts within Epcot that allows you to learn, watch and talk to Broadway artists.
3. Morse Museum of Stained Glass
The Morse Museum holds an incredible and vast collection of art by Louis Comfort Tiffany, including various art forms ranging from pottery, art glass to jewelry and windows. As you venture through the audio tour, you’ll feast your eyes on featured works such as the World’s Columbian Exposition, or specific sets of art from Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Long Island estate.

With many art specialists reviewing the Morse Museum as a fine collection, there is no way that you can miss it whilst you take on an adventure to Orlando.
4. Animal Kingdom
Another theme park inspired by Disney; Animal Kingdom is a zoologist-themed park where the ‘Tree of Life’ is the icon of the vast space. It sits at 145 feet tall and 50 feet wide making it easy to view from pretty much anywhere in the park. You’ll find the landscape spanning over 580 acres, this comes in as one of the largest theme parks in Orlando giving you plenty of time to explore.
Distinguished from the rest of the theme parks in the surrounding area, Animal Kingdom park features the traditional attractions that you could expect from a theme park including rides and games, but for the rest of us, there are exhibits of hundreds of live species for you to inspect and admire. All the animals are carefully looked after by specialists, and they even take part in learning events and shows. Especially the night festival where animals come alive in the midst of darkness; whilst the attractions remain calm and to a nice noise level to protect those other animals and guests living there.
Last year there were over 10 million guests making this attraction one of the most popular features in the whole of North America and even the sixth most popular visited attraction in the world. You can’t miss it.
5. Sea World
Whilst the rides might not be available for all, there are certainly plenty of other things to enjoy at Sea World. Enjoy the Killer Whale experience, with an outdoor presentation with dining opportunities at the same time as you learn and watch this magnificent creature that some may never see in their lives. Orca’s are one of the most beautiful, smart and powerful sea animals and this attraction allows you to view them head on and be inspired. Seating and team assistants are available at your request, so you can be full of confidence.
Or why not go behind the scenes and see a day in the life of the trainers and caretakers, to witness the care and interactions between them and these wonderful sea animals. Get super up close and personal with these feathered and wide-eyed animals that make you fall in love in an instance.
All of the above are an excellent way of spending the day and rolling around in your perfectly smooth rentable mobility scooter. All the attractions and sites are wheel-chair accessible and make sure that you feel comfortable throughout your day.
