Enjoy live entertainment while you eat, drink, mingle each night -- and end your evening watching fireworks under the stars.
The Spa at the Ritz-Carlton
This extensive space features 40 treatment rooms where pampering is the order of the day. Among the extensive menu listings is the Spa Diva package, which includes poolside cabana amenities, lunch for two at Vitale, and a 50-minute service at the spa itself. For starters, choose something from the Art of Well roster, which is themed around Balance, Energy and Vitality. You can pick from a myriad indulgent options. The Ritz-Carlton spa is just off International Drive on the Central Florida Parkway.
Orange County National Golf Center
Panther Lake is also a rarity in Florida: A golf course without any development or homes on it. The greens are well-guarded and elevated, so risk is well-rewarded. The Crooked Cat course presents fewer trees throughout, but as a links course can lure golfers into ripping it out into the seemingly open fairways. That's when overlooked bunkers appear, adding extra challenge to this versatile course. The Tooth course is a 9-hole, short course, yet remains as challenging as the championship courses.
Cirque du Soleil: La Nouba
La Nouba, a French phrase meaning “to party” or “live it up,” is performed twice nightly at the free-standing, permanent theater in Downtown Disney's West Side. Watch for the massive white, tent-like theater -- the tallest and most dramatic structure in the shopping and dining district, just minutes from International Drive.
An instructor stays on-hand to help, and the entire adventure is photographed and videotaped. Earn your wings with 2 one-minute flights or arrive with a group of up to 5 and experience 10 one-minute flights. The entire adventure can be experienced in the time of a midday break and promises to be a bit more memorable than a boxed lunch in a conference room.
