2. Learn to paint while drinking cocktails.

Colors & Bottles run regular three-hour painting classes in which you get to paint and drink cocktails at the same time. They bring the art supplies, the bar brings the drinks, and you bring as much talent as you can muster. At the end of the class you'll have a painting each to hang on your wall/squeeze into your luggage.

6. Spend a lazy Saturday morning in Winter Garden.

This historic area of Orlando has restaurants, shops, and cafés, plus a couple of museums to wander lazily through between coffees.

7. Ride a swan-shaped paddle boat on a lake.

For $15 you can hire your own swan and paddle around for a whole hour on Lake Eola.

Got some holiday money to burn? Splash out on this a private plane trip, and watch Disney's fireworks from 1,100 feet high in the sky. And when you come back down to earth, you have cheese and wine waiting for you at your table for two on the tarmac. Plus a single rose, obviously.

10. Visit the Orlando Museum of Art.

OMA is the leading cultural institution in the region, and it's got all sorts of stuff of both local and international significance. You can learn a lot about a place through its museums, and it's the best place to go on a rare rainy day.

11. Head to the beach to watch the astronauts.

So here's the thing about Orlando that you probably don't realise: it's not that far from Cape Caneveral. Alan Shepard Beach Park at Cocoa Beach was named after the first American in space, and if you're there on the right day, you can see the rockets launch while standing with your feet in the sand.
