One Direction's Liam Payne Vacations In Orlando

It's been an extremely busy past couple of years for One Direction. The release of their first album and world tours left little downtime for the teen sensations. But they've finally been able to take a small break and grab some much needed R&R.

For Liam Payne, who was in Orlando in July along with the rest of the guys, that included a return to Orlando and some family fun at SeaWorld Orlando, Discovery Cove, Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios Orlando.

If you happened to be at the theme parks over the weekend, you may have caught a glimpse of Payne taking in the attractions. Liam's sister Ruth helped chronicle the family vacation via her Twitter account, including a photo of Liam fearlessly capturing a Florida reptile while lounging by the pool at their vacation rental.

Liam put up a post after experiencing the freefalling Tower of Terror ride at Disney World's Hollywood Studios, which was then followed by a fearless photo from friend Thomas Gibbins.

The highlight of their trip to Universal Studios Orlando appeared to be the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

While there was a pane of glass separating them, Liam and SeaWorld's Shamu both appeared to be fans of the other.

Liam and the family concluded their vacation with one of the most interactive and exciting theme park experiences in Orlando, a day swimming with the dolphins at Discovery Cove.

And keep your eyes out for Liam in Orlando...he may be back! After Payne's absent girlfriend, Danielle Peazer, tweeted her jealousy of the dolphin swim, Ruth hinted that Liam may be headed back sometime in the near future, bringing Peazer along.
