It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the fun family activities in Orlando you can take part in when planning your trip. Not only is it the Theme Park Capital of the World, but it also boasts amazing weather, beautiful beaches, and unique wildlife opportunities. To help you navigate your itinerary, we’ve put together some of our top Orlando bucket list items that you can experience on your next vacation.
Check These Disney Items Off Your List
While Disney World is an obvious choice for family activities in Orlando, to get the full thrill of the park you have to hop on the back of an Avatar Banshee and explore Pandora at the Animal Kingdom’s newest attraction, the Flight of Passage Ride. True fans can plan on celebrity sightings, by tracking down their favorite princesses through the park and getting their autographs. Finally, you can take a tour around the world without hopping on a plane, by visiting Epcot’s World Showcase which gives you a glimpse into the exotic cultures of 11 different countries.
Get a Dose of Nature
Florida’s unique ecosystem of coast, marsh, swamp, and mangroves, make it home to a range of different plants and animals. You can easily spend a day kayaking or canoeing in Lake Louisa State Park and spot the local bobcats, tortoises and fox squirrels. For a closeup encounter with some of Orlando’s famous wildlife, step into Discovery Cove, where you can feed birds, snorkel, and swim with dolphins.
Cool Off at Surfari Water Park
Soaking up the sun is a major part of any Orlando vacation, and at the new Surfari Water Park, you can get some quality pool time in. Located in The Grove Resort Orlando, the park has been a popular addition to the area. Relax in the lazy river and work on your tan, get an adrenaline rush sliding down one of their many water rides, or test your balance on Florida’s only surf simulator.
