Orlando is home to over 2.5 million residents but is best known for one resident in particular - Mickey Mouse.
75 million visitors flock to Orlando a year to visit Mickey at Walt Disney World Resort, completed in 1971, or one of the other many parks in the city. SeaWorld, LegoLand, Universal Studios and their accompanying parks boast a collective 20+ rollercoasters for thrill-seekers, but the true magic of these parks are the shows. From animal feedings to Lego building by Master Crafters to your favorite movie-themed shows, Orlando gives in and out-of-state tourists alike a theme park to meet their travel needs. And don’t get us started on the food.
If you’re more into restaurants than rollercoasters, Orlando does not disappoint – every iconic national restaurant seems to have a location in the area. If you are an early riser and want grab a filling breakfast or brunch, look no further than Hash House A Go Go. While a chain, this is the only location in Florida; with customer favorites like Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken Benedict, garnished with griddled mozzarella, bacon and eggs, or the The New York Times-favorite, Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken and Waffles, which features a hot syrup reduction, we’re hoping to see it around the state soon. Night owls, not to worry, Wine Bar George is a top-rated destination for wine and charcuterie, though the Crispy Mac and Cheese Bites and Grilled Octopus Salad small plates should not be overlooked.
For a unique and memorable night on the town, the Boathouse is a must. The Disney Springs restaurant is located right on the water, and for good reason: the driving feature of the restaurant are its Amphicars. Built in the ‘60s on a very small scale, Amphicars can be driven on the road and in the water as a boat (get it? Amphibian, Amphicar), making it a perfect way to take in the sights of Disney Springs from a view you won’t find anywhere else.
But magic isn’t only found at Orlando theme parks and restaurants. Our second MÜV Orlando location will be joining Amusement Park Way soon, less than 10 miles from Disney Springs and Universal Studios.

Cannabis, coffee and shopping – you won’t want to miss this grand opening. Be sure to subscribe for emails regarding the grand opening date.
