For many of you, chances are your November will be COLD! Yet another benefit of attending the 2014 International Franchise Brokers Conference & Expo is that you get to enjoy beautiful, sunny Florida! Historically, November weather is highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 60s, with a 30% chance of light rain. Many of our conference attendees take advantage of the opportunity to extend their stay and enjoy some of the many sights which Orlando has to offer, in addition to the lovely weather.
Of course, everyone knows that Orlando is famous for its amazing theme parks! But did you know that the conference hotel, the Embassy Suites Orlando Lake Buena Vista South, is located just 3.5 miles from the entrance to the Walt Disney World Resort? Earlier this year, Magic Kingdom revealed just some of the many planned updates to The New Fantasyland, including an Ariel ride, a Beauty & the Beast restaurant, and a revamped circus-themed area featuring two Dumbo rides. Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom also offer a wide variety of shows and attractions to please the young and the young at heart. Universal Orlando, just nearby, has also recently opened its new Transformers 3-D ride. Its two parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, are home to some of the most popular characters you and your kids enjoy – Marvel superheroes, Dr. Seuss, and Harry Potter!
Let’s not forget about Sea World, Gatorland, Cirque du Soleil, or any one of the myriad dinner theater experiences. Looking for some great deals? Orlando’s outlet malls are a popular destination to pick up a little something for yourself or get started on your Christmas shopping. It’s a win-win-win scenario!
