Orlando Connections is an online community designed to help inform Central Florida residents as well as people visiting our wonderful area. Our goal is to keep our users informed, share information and connect online with those who share common interests. We are native Orlandoans who were here before Disney, Universal, International Drive and SeaWorld, however, we feel very fortunate to live in this area and take full advantage of the theme parks. We know and love Orlando so we have designed this website for locals and to give people visiting our area a local perspective. Our leadership includes:
