Discover everything Orlando has to offer with Go City
Cut down on both time and stress by purchasing a Go City multi-attraction pass, granting you access to 20+ attractions with just one pass! Here is a rundown of our favourite picks!

Attempting to cram all of Orlando’s attractions into one trip can be thrilling but exhausting, given the crazy number of theme parks crammed into one city. With so much to explore in so little time, we suggest a more-relaxed approach. Instead of scheduling back-to-back park days, consider alternating days between the top attractions and smaller gems to fully appreciate all that Orlando has to offer

Go City is the perfect way to see any city. Choose between the Go City: Orlando Explorer Pass, allowing you to explore a specific number of attractions you wish to explore throughout your visit, or the Go City: Orlando All-Inclusive Pass, where you select the length of your trip from 2 to 5 days, and you can visit as many attractions as possible within that time length! This gives you remarkable flexibility as you can tailor your itinerary to your preferences during your stay.

Here are some of the top attractions we recommend you visit with Go City:


1. Kennedy Space Center

Are you fascinated by space exploration? Embark on an out of this world adventure at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for a day brimming with space-themed fun! Delve into an educational presentation led by an astronaut, meet and greet them in an astronaut encounter, experience the thrill of the space shuttle simulator, stroll amongst NASA’s rockets in the Rocket Garden, immerse yourself in astronaut training simulators, or perhaps even witness a live rocket launch. There is so much to see and do here so take a trip to Cape Canaveral.
