Short simple answer but one that's not easy.

Learn to make multiple millions of dollars a year. In the process save up around $500 million. At that point you and/or your company should have enough assets and credit to build your park, and you will have learned the answers to all of your other questions and how to deal with them in the process. :-)

(I know that might sound snarky. It's really not meant that way. It's a sincere, honest answer to your question.)

I would imagine that the biggest challenge in the Orlando area or even Florida in general is not so much getting the land but the city to approve the land for another theme park. If i was you, i would look into whether or not it is even an option. You may have to look at a different state.
It is one thing to bring up the proposal and show some assets going towards it, but they can very easy just turn it down for various reasons. Getting to know who (aside from the Mayor), is on that team that approves this type of thing will help you as well.

Also as far as land goes, how much land are you looking at. How much you plan on using up before opening, what is your 5 or 10 year plan. Theme parks require a set budget for not just roller coaster's, but maintenance as well.

Another question is what about investor's? You stated you have person that will be co-owner, but what happens when that person's money is gone? Investors will be a key in keeping things going. They may not be necessary the first couple of year's. But once you start getting into planning for future and cost's for upgrades and new rides. They will be necessary.

As far as the other things go. Maybe start up a small business first get the hang of all the cost involved. For the smaller but common things such as security and employee salaries. Learn the in and out's a business for start-up cost and how long it really takes to make a profit. Then move on to the theme park. get a good lawyer to help with the legal stuff.

Finally, good luck.
