April is a great time to visit Orlando. In late spring, the Central Florida weather starts to warm back up well before the large summer crowds begin to gather. If you’re planning a trip to Orlando this April, there are many things to do in The City Beautiful besides theme parks. In fact, there are fantastic theatrical and musical performances lined up that you won’t want to miss out on. The following exciting events are scheduled to appear at The Dr. Phillips Center in April.
