Top Kid-Friendly Attractions in Orlando

Destination(s): Orlando

Guide written by Kara Mayer Robinson and Jen of Two Kids and a Map.

It doesn't really matter if you're a fan of the mouse or not-Orlando is a no-brainer when it comes to pleasing the whole family. This kid-centric city makes little ones so happy that it brings smiles to everyone on board, making family trips run super-smooth.

There are endless activity options for kids in and around Orlando. You may feel a bit rushed, but it is entirely possible to visit two Disney parks in one day. Allow plenty of time for the shuttle to take you to each park. If you will be in Orlando for more than four days, purchase the four day pass and visit one park each day..


Note: Be sure to read the Day Notes for the kid-friendly details on recommended attractions.

A couple of hours can easily and peacefully drift away while strolling around Lake Eola Park, taking in the floating fountain and watching the white and black swans peacefully paddling across the lake. Established in 1888, the park's 43 acres of land are continuously enhanced with vibrant flowers, perfectly manicured grounds, and charming gazebos. The walking path circling the lake is 0.9 miles in length, perfect for enjoying a healthy stroll or vigorous jog. Shop at the Sunday Eola Market featuring fresh produce, artisan items, and a beer garden with live music. Swan rides are available for rent most days, and there is a restaurant tucked right inside the park called Eric's on Eola. There are about a dozen more restaurants within a short walking distance. read more about Lake Eola Park
