Featured Orlando Attractions For Student Trips
Students travel to Orlando, Floridafor a variety of reasons. In the past, student tours were designed around visiting Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Nowadays, Disney World is still a featured attraction in Orlando, but it is not the ONLY theme park anymore. Universal Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure are also popular among student travel groups headed for Orlando.
Student groups who want to take an Eco tour of Central Florida are invited to take a look at the Eco Tour ETC’s educational travel professionals have developed. Teachers may want a curriculum themed tour such as social studies or science tour of Orlando - ETC offers this to educational groups, too. Educational Travel Consultants has also created special performance tours of Orlando for band, orchestras, choral groups and other types of performers. Whatever the objective - there are plenty of choices in Orlando for educational trips.
