It is the official home of Orlando Magic and it's in Downtown Orlando, a more central area of Orlando and where tourists don't usually visit as much.
It should be noted that this region is full of gastronomic options, with several bars and restaurants, extremely interesting for those who want to enjoy a route away from parks and shopping.

It is possible to buy tickets for the Orlando Magic through the NBA through several platforms, such as at the ticket office itself or in some places around the city, however we recommend purchasing before your trip to already include the tour in your script.
Always be on the lookout for authentic tickets when making your purchase through unofficial channels, especially for games with high demand, where there are even cases of abusive prices and fake tickets.
