At Orlando.ShowTickets.com, you can save over 50 percent on admission that includes all of the above, with tickets starting at just $36, so book your VIP table today before they’re gone!

Amway Center
The Amway Center has a jam-packed month of events, with a slew of concerts and acts visiting the City Beautiful, as MercyMe (May 4), Nicky Jam (May 17) and Ariana Grande (May 29) take center stage at this downtown venue. The Orlando Solar Bears continue their playoff quest with a home showdown on May 2, while the Orlando Predators are back for more indoor football on May 12.

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts 
The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts always has a diverse collection of shows playing, and May is no different, with a variety of concerts and shows taking center stage.

Theme Parks
The local theme parks are always popular places to go for entertainment, and May is no exception, particularly at the Walt Disney World Resort with the continuation of Disney’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

Featuring world-renowned Disney-themed topiaries, garden spaces, wildlife habitats, experiential exhibits and the popular outdoor kitchens, this festival is one that can’t be missed!
