Your kiddos are going to be home for an entire week in the Spring – yikes! Don’t worry, we have got your back with information on lots of fun activities that you can do in and around Orlando with the kids for spring break.
20 Fun Things To Do With Kids in Orlando During Spring Break
Here are 20 fun Orlando activities that you can take the kids to do during spring break.
Alligators Unlimited Airboat Tours
The name says it all! Right here in Central Florida on the Kissimmee River, which happens to be the headwaters for the Florida Everglades. The Alligators Unlimited Airboat Tours offers riders the chance to see a plethora of Florida wildlife during a one or two-hour tour. This is recommended for children eight and older.
Do you feel the need for speed? Head over to Andretti on Universal Boulevard for food, fun, and fast! The entire family will enjoy the night out to play a few video games or take a ride in the go karts.
Color Spring Break week magical! Take the kiddos to the Crayola Experience where they can let their imaginations run wild. They can even make their own crayons!
We are in the gator capital of the world, so take the kiddos to see some alligators – at a safe distance of course. Gatorland is much more than just alligators. They have an aviary, a petting zoo, a train ride, a splash park, multiple shows and more.

Orlando is not all theme parks. Put ICON Park on your “to do” list during Spring Break. Visit the Wheel at ICON Park, Museum of Illusions, and In the Game just to name a few. There is so much to do, you may want to get there early!
Get ready to unleash your inner daredevil and head over to iFly. Expertly trained professionals help you feel the joy of free falling while keeping you relatively close to the ground. This one-of-a-kind skydiving experience is open to children three and older.
Kennedy Space Center
321 blast off! The Kennedy Space Center offers visitors both a blast from the past and a look into the future of space travel. Kids can see the mission control room from Apollo 8, see a rocket up close and explore a space shuttle. A visit to Kennedy Space Center is better suited for elementary and middle school-aged children.
The Harry P. Leu Gardens is beautiful to visit any time of year. Take the kids to walk around the gardens, interact with the butterflies in the Butterfly Garden, learn about vegetables in the Vegetable Garden, stop and smell the roses in the Rose Garden or use their imagination in the Idea Garden. Children will also enjoy hunting for The Secret Garden.
Talk about one-stop shopping for Spring Break! Plan a weekend or spend the week at Margaritaville in Orlando and you will not be disappointed. The kiddos will love hanging at the kids’ club and the grownups laze around the poolside.
Medieval Times is back and better than ever. The show is a perfect way to spend a Spring Break night with delicious food, drink, and battling knights for the fair princess’s hand.
I don’t think Spring Break is complete without a little golfing. There are so many locations in Orlando to play mini golf with a variety of themes including pirates, shipwrecks, travel locations and more.
Old Town USA
Old Town USA is a classic theme park with a carnival-like atmosphere. This combination makes it perfect for a Spring Break day. Enjoy the carousel, classic cars, live shows every weekend, the Ferris wheel, or be a real daredevil and tackle the Hurricane rollercoaster.
Orlando Science Center
Learning can still happen, even during Spring Break. Visit the Orlando Science Center as they host a myriad of programs for little learners in Kidstown and everyone will enjoy feeding the fish and other sea life in Nature Works.

PicassoZ Art Café
This is a great putting for the art lover in all of us. At PicassoZ Art Café, located in Lakeland, you don’t need any art experience to create beautiful pieces. You can choose to make your pieces in the studio or you can take it home to create your art. This would be a fun activity for children six and older.
Show off your tennis skills or gain some new ones by visiting the United States Tennis Association National Campus in Lake Nona. Not into tennis, then try out padel; the kids absolutely loved it! It has a much faster learning curve than tennis. Just twenty minutes from OIA, visitors can play for free (we recommend getting there early to secure a court). Once done, you can grab lunch at the Net Post Grill (we recommend sitting outside) or head over to the Town Center and grab lunch at Boxi Park.
Take a Boat Tour
If you’re looking for a relaxing day with the kiddos, take them on a boat ride with the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour. Go for an hour-long boat ride through the Winter Park chain of lakes. Once done, stroll through town and visit some of the local shops and eateries.

Tree Trek Adventure
Looking for an adventure for the entire family? Then visit Orlando’s Tree Trek Adventure Park. They have rope courses for all abilities for children six and older. Besides tree trekking, visitors can dare to ride the 425-foot zipline but make to book your adventures in advance because the park does fill up quickly.
Visit a Waterpark
Orlando has plenty of waterparks to visit during Spring Break week; you have a choice between Universal’s Volcano Bay, Aquatica, or Blizzard Beach. Beat the heat and spend the day cooling off all while having fun!
Central Florida put the “spring” in Spring Break! Florida has beautiful natural springs, and a few are right in our backyard. Wekiwa Springs offers the entire family a fun-filled day of relaxation, swimming, and a chance to see some wildlife too.
Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo
A dude ranch in Florida? Yes please! Horseback riding, a Saturday night rodeo, teepees, cabins, and fun glamping options, Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo in Polk County will prove to be an unforgettable family vacation.
