We dont have any kids of our own, but we`re the coolest babysitters and we looove our nephews. We`re experts when it comes to plan adventures for the young ones. Of course it all depends on the age of the kids.
Some of Orlando’s world-famous theme parks are better suited for little ones than others, starting with the brand-new Peppa Pig Theme Park at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, designed to be the ultimate day for little ones!
LEGOLAND Florida Theme Park is also specifically geared toward kids.
Likewise, Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort is an obvious choice for this (or any) age, with countless amazing sights and sounds to stimulate your child’s senses. SeaWorld Orlando also has plenty of opportunities to enjoy close encounters with a variety of gentle creatures, not to mention Sesame Street Land. And don’t forget that Universal’s Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando Resort has an entire land devoted to beloved Dr. Seuss characters.
It’s also worth noting that children under 3 get free entry into most of Orlando’s theme parks, water parks and attractions, and other amenities are available for parents with very young children. For example, each park has comprehensive baby-care centers with a host of amenities. They also offer conveniently located diaper-changing stations in select locations, including men’s, women’s and family restrooms. Check with your theme park destinations for more information.
The Orlando Science Center provides kids with countless hands-on learning opportunities. In the same park, the Orlando Museum of Art hosts monthly “Art Adventures” where children can learn about colors, shapes, lines, textures and more.
Take a stroll around Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando. In addition to a mile-plus walking path, the park has paddleboats shaped like swans, a fountain that lights up at night, and plenty of shaded, grassy places to sit and relax. Plus, this park is at the center of all of downtown’s acclaimed dining options.
If you’re feeling adventurous, Gatorland has some unique (and safe) ways for young children to enjoy the outdoors. First, Gator Gully Splash Park has a host of interactive, animal-themed water toys and splash areas. Allie’s Barnyard gives kids the chance to pet goats, llamas and other friendly critters, and colorful birds can be fed at the Very Merry Aviary. Last but not least, the Express Railroad provides relaxing train rides for your whole group.
If your children are old enough to appreciate it, this might also be the ideal time to delight them with character dining opportunities at theme parks, when available.
Walt Disney World Resort traditionally has numerous options, including classic Disney animated characters at Chef Mickey’s inside Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Other toddler-friendly eateries at Disney include Rainforest Cafe at Disney Springs and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, as well as T-REX at Disney Springs and Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, with the latter offering the chance to see giraffes, zebras and gazelles grazing outside the window.
Universal Orlando Resort traditionally offers meals with Marvel super-heroes and Despicable Me characters. And at SeaWorld, you can enjoy a family feast while learning about the park’s pilot whales at Dine With Orcas near Orca Encounter. Check with the respective parks for more details.
If your kids are a little older, Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort is another stellar choice, but Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park — which gives guests the chance to see real exotic animals on Kilimanjaro Safaris, plus other kid-friendly shows and rides will also entertain them. And if your little ones love Star Wars, they won’t want to miss Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
If you`re traveling with teenagers, this city will blow their mind. Your kids will soon be driving for real if they’re not already, so let them take the wheel at Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, located in the International Drive Entertainment District. Close by is Topgolf Orlando, which pairs golf with a scoring system similar to darts or bowling. For games and fun food, hit up Kings Dining & Entertainment.
In the same area, iFLY Orlando Indoor Skydiving will give your teens the chance to experience flight in a safe, controlled environment. The area’s escape rooms are great for teens, too, including The Escape Game Orlando and Escapology.
About an hour from Orlando on Florida’s East Coast, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex presents a whole day of wonder and excitement for anyone who’s interested in a STEM career or space exploration. Back in Orlando, Gatorland has plenty to keep teens occupied, especially when you add the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line and Stompin’ Gator Off-Road Adventure experiences into the mix.
If your teens love outdoor adventure, they’ll develop a deeper appreciation for Orlando with some of our more unique ecotourism attractions. These include off-roading at Revolution Adventures and airboat tours at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures Spirit of the Swamp Airboat Rides and Wild Florida.
