Orlando is a place where you can go and have a great time, no matter what you love. Consider yourself a bit of a geek? Let your geek flag fly at


Anime fandom has come a long way since the early 2000s. Once upon a time anime conventions were small events full of only the hardcore fans. Now, they’re LARGE events full of hardcore fans!

Anime Festival Orlando is one of the premier events for fans of anime and manga in America’s southwest! Taking place from August 9-11, it’s three days of the most fun you can have dressed as a Naruto ninja. AFO has the rare distinction of being named one of the “Top 10 Things To Do In Orlando” by DK Publishing’s Travel Guide – how many fan conventions can claim a similar accolade?

An anime convention is as good as its guests, and AFO has an incredible assortment. Jason David Frank, AKA “The Green/White Ranger” will appear, as will awesome voice actors like Johnny Yong Bosch, Steve Blum and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and performers like Sana and Mega Ran!
There will also be fun events like an AMV contest, cosplay fashion competitions, and two AMAZING experiences you can only have at AFL: Tales of Orlandio and Warriors of Orlandio.

Tales of Orlandio is a convention wide RPG where every attendee tries to solve the mysteries plaguing the kingdom of Orlandio. Warriors of Orlandio is a convention specific collectible card game that you can learn and play for just this one weekend!

There’s nothing like going to a convention and getting to indulge in what you really love with great friends, old and new.

Looking to attend AFO and want to bring your crew to really make the most of it? Book a fun stay at the Orlando The Vista Cay Resort By Orlando Resorts Rental. You can rent an apartment-style room with multiple beds, which means you can bring all your friends!
