Pretty Church and area. They have beautiful gardens and outdoor areas.A gift shop is also available- I visited because I was curious and it was interesting. Definitely a beautiful place right beside the Premium Outlets.

What a beautiful architectural work - it is awesome in design, but more importantly, the Mass was very inspirational.

We have been attending mass at this beautiful shrine for over 20 years whenever we vacation in the Orlando area. It is a beautiful place of worship and a blessing to travelers from the world over.

Beautiful shrine. They offer confession at various times. Mass here is lovely. I have heard that it was built to be an "Oasis in the desert" of all the attractions and shopping and it is truly that. Very spiritual place. The gift shop is wonderful.

We went to mass at the Basilica, beautiful tribute to Our Lady!! The grounds are lovely as well! A visit to the Basilica will be a very nice addition to your Orlando vacation. The church and grounds are very peaceful, amidst all the Disney excitement.

The Basilca is such a wonderful place to attend Mass while on vacation in Orlando. The facility and its campus is large with plenty of parking for visitors. The church is huge but there is a great deal of warmth and such a welcoming feeling when there. The priests that I have heard -- and I have been to Mass... More
