There are always lots of fun things to do in Orlando. This weekend is no different than any other. However, you might want to take advantage of these specials being offered only this weekend at a couple Central Florida attractions.
Friday and Saturday, Fantasy of Flight will host World War II bomber crew veterans as part of its “Legends and Legacies” symposium. “Unspoken Valor: The Bomber Crews of World War II” features veterans who worked on giant aircraft and gives guests the opportunity to ask questions and get autographs. Visitors will also be able to walk through a Flying Fortress, the model that was used in daylight bombings over Germany, and the P-51 Mustang, the B-17’s fighter escort. The forums will be at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Fantasy of Flight’s operating hours are 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. The events are included in regular Fantasy of Flight admission which is $28.95 general, $14.95 for ages 6-12.

The next few days are also a great time to visit the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex where the next four days will host farewell festivities for the Space Shuttle Discovery. Events include an exclusive Discovery bus tour ($20/adult and $14 for ages 3-11), astronaut meetings, “The Dream Is Alive” at The IMAX film theater and more.

One of the BEST deals for the weekend includes Sunday’s special admission price into the Orlando Science Center.

Of course the best Orlando dinner show deal is a night at Capone’s Dinner & Show. Their special runs every night of the year and tickets can be purchased online at half the regular price. What other Orlando dinner show gives its guests an all-you-can-eat buffet, unlimited drinks, show, dessert, parking and more?
