Orlando is a town that has everything! From theme parks to internationally acclaimed restaurants to so many opportunities to have fun and adventure it almost won’t seem fair to the rest of the world, so of course, when you first start to think about where you should celebrate Cinco de Mayo, we would be very surprised if Orlando didn’t pop into your mind immediately! Even as this day celebrating a very important victory for Mexico over France isn’t one you may normally consider traveling on, the fact that it falls on a Friday in 2023 makes it a little easier to incorporate into your very busy schedule! Choose to make yourself a priority on this South of the border-inspired celebration and add a stay in our Tuscana Resorts’ happy hideaways to add luxury, style, and much-needed comfort to your celebration, with the latter being something you will especially appreciate the morning after! (Remember your morning after St. Patrick’s Day? Add tequila to the celebration and you will truly understand the beauty of having someplace special to recuperate in!)
Cinco de Mayo at SeaWorld, April 27-May 7
Surprise! A theme park will be celebrating this spring holiday and as you explore life under the sea, the party starts in earnest in the Artic Plaza of SeaWorld! Offering live music, stilt walkers, and a taste of Mexico that will affirm your love of the cuisine, this is the most fun you can have on land without alcohol, but if you want a little something, something to go with your fiesta, there are restaurants on the premises that sell beer, wine, and cocktails, so be sure and check it out while you are there!
