ABOUT ORLANDO, FLORIDA
Located in central Florida, Orlando is the most visited city in the United States, thanks to its status as the theme park capital of the world! An inland city, it is home to SeaWorld® Orlando, Universal Orlando Resort, Walt Disney World® Resort, and Legoland® Florida Resort, among others, where you can enjoy open-air attractions.
The five-mile loop of International Drive offers a diverse selection of restaurants and an endless array of exciting entertainment, including The Wheel at ICON Park, a 400-foot-tall observation wheel, with air-conditioned passenger capsules ready to take you high above the city! For a taste of culture, Orlando offers the Orlando Museum of Art and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, both in the heart of downtown Orlando. The temperature in May is hot during the day and mild in the evening, with an average high of 86°F and low of 63°F. Learn more about visiting Orlando.
The headquarters for Fellows 2022 is Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, a four-star hotel and conference center that sits at the edge of the Walt Disney World and Epcot resorts.
