The Essential Orlando
Welcome to Orlando! We are thrilled you're here during our most magical season. Orlando hosts a variety of festive holiday happenings, from parades, parties, nightly snow falls and Santa sightings (p. 10). If you happen to be spending your Thanksgiving with us, one of the city's most-known food writers shares his favorite spots on page 8. Holiday travel also means lots of time in the airport, so below I share some of the best spots for dining, shopping and even relaxing in the midst of the hustle. Take time to slow down and enjoy the season's splendor.
