Handy for Disney, Universal and Sea World

if you’re looking for a base from which to experience all the main attractions and theme parks in the Central Florida / Orlando area, then you’re well placed on International Drive. 

Disney and Universal are only a short-drive away, with some resort hotels offering free transportation to both. And Sea World is handily located just off International Drive and the Central Florida Parkway.

With Kennedy Space Centre and both Atlantic and Gulf Coast beaches less than 90 minutes drive away, International Drive is an ideal base for families to explore the many attractions of Central Florida and beyond.

Food & Drink

There’s no shortage of choice when it comes to food, drink and general refreshments on International Drive.

As you cruise along the stretch from the Convention Centre out towards Universal (and beyond) you’ll find more then 150 establishments, offering just about any kind of dining you can think of.

From fast food, to fine dining, monstrous American breakfasts to chic cuisine from around the world – there’s something here for every taste. PERSONAL FAVOURITE: Cafe Tu Tu Tango

What’s The Pointe?

Head along the palm-lined boulevard and you’ll discover the Pointe Orlando – a haven of shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment for young and old alike. 

Suitable for pedestrians, the area from the Pointe out towards W Sandlake Road is a hugely popular area, and home to arguably the very best array of eating and shopping experiences that International Drive has to offer. 

And if you don’t want to walk or drive, take the i-Drive trolleys along to your favourite spot.
