EDC Orlando

After a year away from the scene, one of the largest dance music festivals is coming back to Orlando. Yes, the famous Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)!

The 3-day dance party starts Friday, November 12, and ends late on Sunday, November 14, 2021, at Tinker Field. Come out and celebrate EDC’s 10th anniversary in Orlando.

What is EDC

Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is a global dance music festival featuring big-time artists and insane events and productions.

The festival challenges creativity and pushes the standards of the live entertainment industry. Guests can expect to see mind-blowing performances from the industry’s top talent, carnival-themed rides, intricate stage productions, and innovative art and technology. What makes Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) so unique is it puts all your senses into overdrive. All in all, it is an experience of a lifetime.

The History

The Electric Daisy Carnival started in the 1990s in a warehouse located in Los Angeles and slowly started to make its way around the globe.

The first-ever EDC in Orlando was on May 27 – 28, 2011. The lineup included Ferry Corsten, Paul Van Dyk, Afrojack, Skrillex, and Feed Me. The first day had 12,000 attendees and the next day had 20,000. In 2019, the festival brought in 225,000 fans—a record-breaker for Orlando. From day one EDC was a huge success. Every year since 2011, Orlando continued to host the festival as crowds grew bigger, fans became more loyal, and the event became better. Soon it stretched to a 3-day event. Not much has changed with its location. Tinker Field is where the first festival was held and where it is still held today.

EDC is known for its elaborate stages—with this in mind, this year there are six stages.

Love inspires the KineticFIELD. Energy rules the CircuitGROUNDS. Mother Earth channels through the NeonGARDEN. StereoBLOOM stimulates the senses with sounds. Lastly, an antique and punk aesthetic marks the individuality of the Wide Awake Art Car. Since EDC is carnival-themed, there are crazy rides to brave.

January is all about the new and improved, bringing many New Year’s resolutions, new beginnings, and fresh starts. This is the perfect time to make a list of places you have always wanted visit and things you have always wanted to do while on vacation. I bet there is still somewhere in Orlando you haven’t been or something you haven’t done, right? It’s a great idea to create a list for your next vacation and make those the first things you do. To get you started, take a look at these cool attractions in the Orlando area.

    • Did you know we have our own natural springs in Central Florida? At Wekiwa Springs State Park there are fun activities for the whole family such as swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. If you love the outdoors, you’ll definitely want to add this to your list.
    • Speaking of enjoying the great outdoors, why not take an airboat ride on Boggy Creek? You’ll feel like you’re flying as you speed along the Florida wetlands for an up close look at wildlife, including lots of alligators.
    • If you really want to fly, visit Air Florida helicopter tours on I-Drive. There are a variety of routes that give you a bird’s eye view of the area, including theme parks, lakes, and even your hotel.
    • Consider adding iFly to your list if you like adventure but want to stay indoors. Here all ages and skill levels have the chance to experience skydiving in an indoor wind tunnel.

There is lots more to do in Orlando but I hope these have given you an idea of fun activities to add to your New Year’s bucket list. What are you most looking forward to trying in 2018?

With Father’s Day around the corner, we’ve been thinking about fun activities Dad would love, yet there are so many choices. What can we say? Dad’s Day in Orlando is really exciting, so who better to explain what to do than from the best source possible—my main man—Dad. Here’s a quick rundown of my father’s top three picks on International Drive.

1. For the active father, try iFLY Orlando. This amazing indoor skydiving experience lets you enjoy the thrill of free-falling in a wind tunnel. No parachute, plane, or skydiving experience needed.

2. For the chill father looking to stay cool and enjoy the summer sun, try Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark. With more than 12 water rides and slides, Dad can dip, dive, float, or slide alongside dolphins. Soaking up the sun has never been so much fun.

3. For the detective father who enjoys a mental challenge, try America’s Escape Game. Choose one of five uniquely-themed rooms from which you have to escape—in an hour—using clues, puzzles, deductive reasoning, and team skills. Let Dad be the hero as he uncovers mysteries, hidden treasures, and saves the world from crisis!

There are dozens of more activities: midway rides, side-show attractions, dinner shows, and mini golf to name a few. If you and Dad still can’t make up your minds, ask the Guest Service Desk for an opinion. We’ll be happy to help.

Have an AMAZING Father’s Day!

One of the most common (and broken) resolution for the New Year is to exercise. Sometimes it’s hard to fit exercise into your daily routine, especially when you’re on vacation. But did you know that you can sneak in exercise everyday by doing things such as taking the stairs rather than the elevator, parking further away from the stores, or speed walk during your errands? A little bit goes a long way.


We understand that while you’re on vacation, exercising might be the last thing on your mind. Even with our wonderfully well-equipped fitness center on site, you’re probably looking to spend some time out and about. That’s okay. You’re going to get a great workout. Here’s why…

There are so many attractions on International Drive—all of which are easily accessible by just walking. There are about three miles worth of restaurants, shops, and attractions for you to explore during your stay. Even if you take the IRide Trolley part of the way, you’ll still get a good work out.

A day spent at a theme park also amounts to great exercise. On average, expect to get in 5 to 10 miles of walking at any theme park. Squeeze in more exercise while waiting in line or watching parades or street shows doing calf raises or stretches. If you’re a thrill seeker, you might be happy to know that roller-coasters actually help you burn calories. Our favorite rides may help tone the body as our muscles contract to grip the handrail, heart rates spike, and as we react to the twist and turns by contracting major muscle groups.

Now you know how to turn a vacation into a fit-cation, so enjoy a guilt-free vacation knowing you’re probably getting the best workout possible.
