If you’re looking for your next great family adventure, or someplace different to take the kids, we have you covered. Spending a day out with the kids is a great way to recapture your own childlike curiosity and love of play, so we’ve included plenty of options that will make the adults as happy as the kids. Below are some of the best, most unique, and most beloved things to do with your kids in Orlando.
Alligators, Crocodiles, and Florida go hand-in-hand, but have you ever tried ziplining over waters filled with the creatures? At Gatorland Theme Park, you and your fearless kids can take the adventure of ziplining to a new level by adding the danger of soaring above alligators. The “Screamin’ Gator Zipline” takes you along 1,200-feets of zip lines that are over seven stories tall, with the added view of the hungry creatures below.
Medieval Times is a restaurant that will allow you and the kids to travel back in time and into a legendary world. In the large arena, knights battle in a glorious tournament that will make you feel like you’ve stepped into King Arthur’s court. It is pure, dramatic fun, and definitely not your typical family dinner out. Dinner itself is a four-course feast befitting the royalty you’ll become when you pass through the castle doors.
Pirate’s Dinner Adventure
Another adventure in Orlando that will have you traveling back in time and to a fantastical world. You’ll think you’ve stepped into Pirates of the Caribbean. The Pirate’s Dinner Adventure is dinner with a show (one that is always kid-friendly). Pirates and acrobats sing and dance on board an 18th-century ship replica. There is even a 300,000-gallon lagoon, where mermaids have been known to live and occasionally come to the surface.
World of Chocolate Museum
It is hard to go wrong with chocolate, and at the Chocolate Museum & Café in Orlando, the chocolatiers take it one step further. They offer 45-minute tours of their World of Chocolate Museum. You’ll begin your journey in the “tropical rainforest” to learn about the thing behind all chocolate – cacao. You’ll also learn about the origins of chocolate before entering the sculpture area, which is home to 25 incredible sculptures (made entirely of chocolate!) depicting beloved landmarks from all over the world. Kids will especially love these chocolate sculptures and the antique machinery used to make chocolate. It is a one-of-a-kind tour and a blast for the entire family.
