  1. LEGOLAND® Florida Resort

LEGOLAND® Florida Resort is more than building opportunities with our favorite multi-colored plastic bricks. The 150-acre park has family-friendly rides and attractions, dining, and shopping. Make sure to bring your swimsuit since the park also features a water park with a wave pool and rides that will make a big splash with your family!

Don’t forget to pick up a LEGO set to bring home and relive the vacation memories as your family assembles their favorite collection or creates their own designs!

  1. Kennedy Space Center

Calling space explorers and adventurers of all ages! The Kennedy Space Center is a fun and fantastic way to learn about space, science, and history. 

In addition to checking out exciting exhibits and spaceflight simulators, your family can meet actual astronauts and go on a tour of real launch areas. In fact, you can check before your visit if there are upcoming launches. Make your vacation out of this world with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

  1. WonderWorks

If you see a museum upside down as if it was tossed by its foundation and looks like it went through a megastrong hurricane, then you may have found WonderWorks™.  WonderWorks™ is a fascinating indoor amusement park that your kids will love! Your family can explore interactive and informative exhibits, including a hurricane simulator, virtual sports, and a glow-in-the-dark ropes course.

Stay all day and grab dinner and a show in the evening at The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show. There is unlimited pizza, salad, dessert, and laughs!

  1. The Wheel at ICON ParkOrlando

Check out the largest observation wheel on the east coast at ICON Park™ Orlando. The Wheel at ICON Park™ is more than 400-feet tall and has the best view of the city from the top. Be sure to bring your camera for breathtaking photos and fun family selfies!

Inside each air-conditioned pod are interactive touchpads that tell you more about the sights and area around ICON Park™ Orlando. While the view from the top is great during the day, the view from the ground is the best at night since the Wheel has 64,000 color-changing LED lights, making it the brightest beacon in the Orlando sky.

  1. Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Orlando

Your family won’t believe their eyes when they see the artifacts, objects, and models of the weird, unusual, and fantastic! In fact, they might be in disbelief from the parking lot since the building appears to be tilting as it slides into a sinkhole. 

Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Orlando has 16 unique galleries filled with oddities. There is a surprise around every corner! Your family will have plenty of pictures to share with loved ones back home after touring this creepily curious museum of eccentricities.

  1. Fun Spot America

The name of this attraction doesn’t lie! This family-owned theme park knows what families like. Fun Spot America has all the classic rides your family enjoys, such as roller coasters, bumper boats, and go-karts. And, try your luck on the classic Midway games. 

No matter the ages of your kids, there is something for everyone. Take a spin in some Tea Cups or get your heart pounding on the Skycoaster! Cross off all the items on your summer bucket list at this fun-filled park. 

  1. Gatorland

No Florida vacation is complete without an alligator encounter. Head to Gatorland, a 110-acre wildlife preserve and theme park, to safely get close enough to ‘gators, crocodiles, and more! Check out birds, wild cats, tortoises, snakes, and other critters all in one place.

If you are looking for an adventure, try the Screamin’ Gator Zipline and the Gator Gauntlet Zipline. On the Screamin’ Gator, you’ll soar close to 30 miles per hour 1,200 feet above hundreds of alligators. Or, take the Gator Gauntlet for a closer experience of only 350 feet in the air. 

Boggy Creek Airboat Tour
  1. Boggy Creek Airboat Tour

The Florida Everglades are a must-see for every Orlando timeshare owner and visitors. Take your family on a boat ride they will never forget! Zip around on an airboat checking out the natural beauty of the abundant flora while keeping an eye out for elusive wildlife. 

Are you more of a land-lover? Rent all-terrain bicycles to explore the 32-acre park. Grab some binoculars (or rent them there) and get an even closer look at birds and other wildlife.

Airboat Ride
  1. Congo River Golf

While mini-golf is always a family favorite, Congo River Golf is not your typical putt-putt course. Your family will feel like they are on an adventure as they pass by Tiki huts and real, live alligators!  

Take a break from the golfing safari, but keep the friendly competition going in the arcade game room. Test your skills on video game favorites like air hockey, basketball, and more. 

  1. SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium

Get up close and personal with sea life at the aquarium! Whether your family wants to see clown fishes, sharks, or stingrays, they can ‘sea’ them all here at SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium. There is even a 360-degree ocean tunnel, so your family will feel like they are walking under the sea!

The aquarium schedules talks where your family can learn about sea life as well as entertaining feeding and dive shows. Kids love the interactive behind-the-scenes tour experience that shows them how the aquarium staff takes care of the more than 4,000 species.
