While a visit to the Mouse is on the list for a lot of vacationers heading to Orlando any time of year, there are other Orlando Halloween activities and attractions, many full of Halloween spirit, to fill your time. No matter how you celebrate Halloween or the fall season, there’s something for everyone. Make sure to bring a mask, as some places may require it for entry.
Disney After Hours Boo Bash
Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and all your favorite Disney characters have concocted a spooky show full of family Halloween fun for all ages. After the Magic Kingdom closes for the evening, bash attendees will enjoy party music, decorations, “Character Cavalcades” and more, it’s a Halloween party like no other. Make sure to dress in costume and bring your Trick-or-Treat bag to collect treats from characters in their Halloween flare. There are no day park ticket or reservations required after purchase, but there are only a few select dates still available. Another perk to this ghoulish party: the after-hours ticketed event means smaller crowds and shorter wait times at your favorite rides and attractions!
Trunk or Treat
Save your cash for other souvenirs and experiences during your trip and head to the Promenade at Sunset Walk for the Kid’s Trick or Treating & “Trunk” or Treat car show. There are over two dozen locations giving out sweets and treats at the outdoor event. The event starts at 4 p.m. on October 30 and is free to attend.

Gators, Ghosts and Goblins
Head to Gatorland for a fright beyond seeing alligators spring from the water to snap food from trainers, or a trainer wrestle the beasts. This year, attend the 3rd annual Halloween celebration perfect for all ages. The daytime bash features multiple themed haunt zones, interactive characters, animal meet-and-greets, the Crocs and Cryptids Zone, Swamp Ghost’s Monster Museum, and more. Kids can dress in costume and take part in the Children’s Halloween Costume Parade complete with treat bags. The event runs October 9-31 on Saturdays and Sundays during park hours. This is probably one of the best Orlando Halloween activities to explore!
Halloween Horror Nights
Teens and adults can visit Universal Resort Orlando after dark now through October 31 for the scare of a lifetime. It’s the 30th anniversary of the park’s Halloween Horror Nights, and they’re pulling out all the stops. There are a number of haunted houses from Halloween Horror Night icons like Puppet Theater: Captive Audience, and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy and other spine-tinglers like The Haunting of Hill House, Beetlejuice, and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The event is going on now until October 31. Ticket prices and times vary. Shows may not be suitable for children under 13.
This mature audiences-only event at SeaWorld is in its first year of fright. Evade the spooks as they rampage through “scare zones” and “roaming haunts” that follow you everywhere you go! Climb on the nighttime coaster ride, see a live monstrous show, and try to resist the haunting song of the one who has emerged from the lake. The event is on select Thursday-Sunday nights from now to October 31. Hours are 7 p.m.- 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 7 p.m. – midnight on Thursdays and Sundays.

While a visit to the Mouse is on the list for a lot of vacationers heading to Orlando any time of year, there are many other activities and attractions to fill your time, some where you can learn while having fun! Whether you’re trying to prevent summer learning loss, taking a break from the rigors of academic work, or just want to make sure the kids learn a little something while having fun, there’s something for everyone.
Orlando Science Center
Having “science” in the name may put off those kids who are set on no school during vacation, but that will change once they’re in the door. The Orlando Science Center makes learning about science fun. From interactive exhibits like the DinoDigs, KidsTown, and others, your students will be having fun and might not realize they’re learning. Stop by The Hive Makerspace and learn how to make amazing things like 3D models, solder a circuit board, or even learn to sew.
Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament
Fill your belly while you fill your mind and have fun doing it. Learn about the knights and dames of medieval times with a visit to the arena. You’ll dine on traditional medieval fare like giant turkey legs while you watch the knights duel in the arena or joust on horseback. There’s no history book lesson to be had, but you’ll be immersed in the history and culture of the time for an unforgettable memory.
Sleuths Mystery Dinner Show
Another fun time that mixes a delicious meal with exercise for your brain. Take a seat and devour four-cheese ravioli, prime rib, and a selection of kids’ meals to satisfy everyone while you watch and flex your brain as you play along to figure out “who dunnit?” along with the cast. There are several shows to choose from, including Squires Inn – where you’ll stay after your tour bus through northwest England breaks down, to The Reunion – where you’ll attend a class reunion that ends up in murder. Call ahead for reservations.
Kennedy Space Center
Take your mind and your curiosity out of this world with a trip to Kennedy Space Center. There are plenty of exhibits, including some hands-on ones, that will take you through what it’s like to be a NASA astronaut. Learn about the different space missions from the famous moon landing in 1969 to Artemis I, NASA’s most recent mission to make it to the moon, and everything in between. You’ll also see what it takes to be and train like an astronaut or take part in Cosmic Quest – a live action gaming experience that simulates real NASA missions.
Learning can be fun and relaxing! When people think of Florida, they think of the ocean, beaches, and tons of outdoor fun year-round with beautiful weather. If you haven’t so much as held a stand-up paddleboarding paddle or wakeboard bar, now might be a great time to learn. There are several companies that offer lessons for a myriad of fun activities you’ll be able to do at any vacation destination. If a land activity is more to your liking, try Orlando Circus School or the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy.
Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition
Step back in time over 100 years to April 1912 and the maiden voyage of the ship. Learn about the ship’s construction, the luxuries aboard, and the advanced technology of the day. You’ll hear stories of passengers and crew and dive deep to learn about artifact recovery and conservation. There’s a special tour just for the kids, with a fun scavenger hunt that goes room by room through the exhibits. Take some time to learn about the heroes aboard, including those who sacrificed their lives to save others. If you happen to be visiting on a Friday or Saturday, dress in your best and attend the First-Class Dinner Gala, open to all ages. The museum and all of the exhibits are open daily, but the special tours run on a schedule and may not be available when you visit, so make sure to plan for your interests.
Educational Fun in Orlando
You came to Orlando to explore and experience a new place on a fun, relaxing getaway with loved ones, and maybe add a little education into the mix. Enjoy a stress-free, worry-free stay when you book a vacation rental provided by Global Resort Homes. A small group or family will enjoy a two-bedroom unit, but you can also plan a reunion and book a unit as large as 15 bedrooms for everyone to explore and learn.

The year-round sun and warmth of Florida makes it an ideal destination any time of year. Pack your bags and gather your friends and family for a fun and exciting fall vacation full of fun and sun, as well as some fun indoor fall activities in Orlando to escape the heat, or the possible rainy day. Set your sights on the Orlando area and its many exciting entertainment offerings and you’ll build a fall vacation to keep you happy and busy throughout your stay and memories to last a lifetime.
The theme parks that call Orlando home seem to put on a show for every holiday and season. Epcot hosts the International Festival of the Holidays as well as the International Food & Wine Festival, you can get spooky with Universal Studios Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, or the SeaWorld Halloween Spectacular. Each park has some variation of a fall celebration that kids and adults will not want to miss. See characters dressed in spooky or festive costume and even some fall-themed treats from the park restaurants.
Originating in Germany in 1810, the fun and frivolity of Oktoberfest has spread across the globe. Beer, food, and a folk festival atmosphere bring people together to celebrate fall. While the heart of the celebration remains, each locale puts its own spin on the festivities. With a growing list of towns in Orlando and the surrounding area that have scheduled activities, you’re bound to find one that you and your group will enjoy. Oktoberfest isn’t all about beer, so most events will be kid friendly.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
When the chill of fall blows through, you’ll want an indoor escape. While there are many shops, boutiques, movie theaters, and other indoor venues that offer fun and excitement, take some time to be amazed by the weird. When you visit the museum full of oddities will amaze and intrigue and have you saying, “I don’t believe it!” Get up close with some of Robert Ripley’s oddest oddities like a shrunken human head, strange fossilized creatures, and other parts of the crazy collection. Make sure not to miss the exhibit focused on Mr. Ripley himself and the over 3,000 letters a day for over 20 years he received! That’s more than any other individual in history up to that point.
Oktoberfest isn’t the only festival that celebrates fall. Several places around the Orlando area celebrate the harvest season, hold arts and crafts fairs, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, U-pick fresh produce stands, and more can keep everyone occupied for hours and ready for a nap when you return to your accommodations.
Getting outside and enjoying the outdoors is a great way to spend some time with those you love outside of the four walls of your accommodations. Resorts, hotels, and vacation rentals alike all have quick access to outdoor spaces like pools, hot tubs, playgrounds, and more. Grab some water and your sun gear and hit the trails for a hike or rent a bike and explore the area around you. These activities are even more fun in the fall, when scorching summer temperatures have begun to cool down.
The Escape Game Orlando
In the last several years, escape rooms have become a popular activity, rain or shine, chilly or warm. If you want a break from the outdoor fall activities in Orlando or the sun, the fun can head indoors for a little while. Gather your group and work together to solve a series of clues and puzzles and break out the themed room in 60 minutes or less to win the game. There are different themed rooms to choose from, each with varying degrees of difficulty. Choose the topic or difficulty that’s right for you and make sure to book in advance. Ask about age, accessibility, or other limitations or other concerns you may have, and make sure to bring a mask.

Chances are, if you are planning a trip to Orlando, a theme park visit is on your itinerary. Orlando is widely known as a theme park capital, with several world class theme parks in and around the Central Florida area that attract millions of visitors each year! Although Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom was the first theme park to open in Orlando in 1971, there have since been many theme parks outside of Disney that are just as magical. The many theme parks of Orlando make it a great place to visit again and again and always get to experience something new! Before you pack up and head out to Orlando, be sure to read through our ultimate theme park guide to make the most out of your next vacation.
Universal Resort Orlando
The magic of movies comes to life at Universal Resort Orlando! It consists of two separate parks—Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure—that each offer a slightly different theme park experience with unique lands, attractions, and live entertainment to enjoy. Also visit Volcano Bay, their water park, to truly beat the Florida summer heat! From traditional thrilling roller coasters and 3-D ride adventures to water rides and kid-friendly attractions, between Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay, you get a complete theme park experience that is perfect for the whole family.
Tickets and Pricing
When planning your trip to Universal Resort Florida, you want to be strategic in how you plan out your days in the parks to make the most out of your tickets. Like many theme parks, the more days you purchase on your ticket, the more value you get out of it. Although it is possible to enjoy one fun-filled day here, to make the most out of your stay you will probably want to devote at least a couple of days. Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure are two separate parks, but they offer park-to-park passes that allow you travel back and forth between the two parks on the same day. This is definitely the best ticket to purchase if you want to make the most out of your time in the parks! They also offer one park per day tickets, beginning at $109 for adults and $104 for children. Volcano Bay tickets must be purchased separately, and prices begin at $80 for adults and $75 for children, with no park-to-park passes available. If you are planning to come to Orlando multiple times a year, definitely consider an annual pass to get the most bang for your buck!
Rides and Attractions
Universal Resort Orlando has truly spared no expense when it comes to attractions. One of the most popular destinations in the resort is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which actually spans both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Ride the Hogwarts Express to quickly travel between Diagon Alley in London and the magical town of Hogsmeade and enjoy magical thrill rides such as Escape from Gringotts, Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure, and the Forbidden Journey. Fans of the classic movie Jurassic Park should definitely venture to Islands of Adventure to experience the Jurassic Park River Adventure and the newly opened VelociCoaster! However, Universal Resort isn’t all thrill rides. Enjoy fun for the whole family on attractions such as Shrek 4-D, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, and the kid-friendly rides at Seuss Landing.
Live Entertainment and Shows
As you might expect from a theme park that brings the magic of the movies to life, Universal Resort Orlando has many live shows and entertainment that are sure to delight the whole family. For stunts and action, consider Animal Actors in Action or the Bourne Stuntacular, which both bring the thrills. Each land within Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure has its own version of a live show or other entertainment. Enjoy carnival games at Springfield: Land of the Simpsons, meet a velociraptor in Jurassic Park, or meet the driver of the iconic Knight Bus in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Don’t forget your dining reservations when you are planning your time in Universal Resort Orlando! There are plenty of quick service dining options, one of the most popular being to grab a bite and butterbeer at the Hog’s Head Tavern in Wizarding World. However, the full-service restaurants offer a more relaxed experience for your trip. Make sure you make your reservations in advance at great spots such as Lombard’s Seafood Grille in Universal Studios or Mythos Restaurant in Islands of Adventure. There are also tons of sit-down dining options outside of the park at the Universal CityWalk. From high end Italian to standard sports bar fare, there is a great dining option for everyone in Universal Resort Orlando!
SeaWorld is one of the most iconic theme parks in the area, creating the perfect combination of aquarium, zoo, and class theme park entertainment all in one! Here you’ll find great thrill rides that are sure to entertain even the most discerning thrill seekers, but you’ll also find great events and attractions for the whole family such as live animal shows. Anyone who loves the ocean and its creatures will love spending a day at SeaWorld park!
SeaWorld offers a variety of ticket options that allows you to customize your visit. Depending on which day you choose to visit, tickets start at $89.99 with all children 3 and under receiving free admission. You can also choose from a number of add-ons that can make your visit even more seamless. Add a dining pass for $30 that allows you to visit participating restaurants within the park as often as once per hour. Pay for parking in advance with your ticket purchase to save time at the gate. You can even purchase their Quick Queue pass that allows you to get unlimited front of the line access to their most popular rides, or a Reserved Seating pass that gives you VIP seating to one show during your visit. Make the most of your time in SeaWorld from the start by buying the perfect passes!
Rides and Attractions
Considering that SeaWorld is primarily an aquarium, they offer some amazing rides for both thrill seekers and little ones alike. Enjoy high-speed coasters such as Mako, Kraken, and Mantra that rival coasters seen as classic theme parks like Six Flags or Cedar Point. To cool off during your day, consider water rides such as the rapid ride Infinity Falls or the combination flume ride and coaster of Journey to Atlantis. If you are visiting SeaWorld with little ones, have no fear! There are great rides for children here, too. The recently opened Sesame Street Land is perfect for little ones and was voted the #1 new amusement park attraction in 2020. Enjoy several Sesame Street-themed attractions, such as Elmo’s Choo Choo Train, Big Bird’s Twirl n’ Whirl, and Abby’s Flower Tower.
Live Shows and Animal Experiences
Although SeaWorld offers some great coasters and attractions, what they are truly known for is their amazing live animal shows. Their Orca Encounters show is perhaps the most iconic, featuring one of the ocean’s most powerful predators, the killer whale. You may also want to check out the Dolphin Adventures show, where dolphins are sure to delight with a fun performance that is also educational. There are also several aquariums located throughout the park where you can view penguins, beluga whales, pelicans, manatee, stingrays, sharks, and more! SeaWorld’s Shark Encounters allows you to view sharks up close and personal through one of the world’s largest underwater viewing tunnels. Anyone who loves ocean creatures will be delighted by the opportunity to interact with so many animals!
Perhaps the best choice you can make when dining in SeaWorld is adding the unlimited dining pass to your ticket! For just $30 more, you can dine at one participating restaurant per hour, which includes one entree, one side or dessert, and one beverage. Anyone who has dined in a theme park can tell you that $30 sometimes barely covers one person’s meal, let alone a whole day of dining! Those looking for a splurge-worthy dining experience should consider making a reservation to Dine with Orcas. Enjoy a delicious sit-down meal while you view the orcas and learn about ways to preserve our oceans.
Anyone with small kids knows that Legos often are one of the first inspirations for children to get creative and use their imaginations, and they have been a source of fun for kids for generations. One of the best theme park experiences you can give to any kid who loves Legos is to spend time in Legoland Florida! Here, the creative world of Legos comes to life in the form of rides, live entertainment, and unique lands that bring the world of Legos into the real world. In addition to the great theme park, Legoland Florida also includes a world-class water park that is perfect to cool down and have fun during those warm Orlando days. You can’t pick a better theme park to go to with kids than Legoland Florida!
Like many other theme parks in the Orlando area, Legoland offers a number of ticket options with reasonable pricing that allow you to pick the ticket tier that perfectly suits your vacation experience. You can choose tickets to just the theme park, just the water park, or bundle tickets for both parks for multiple days and get even more value! Tickets are offered for as low as $52.50 per day depending on which pass you choose, making Legoland one of the most affordable parks in the Orlando area. In addition to great value in their daily tickets, they also offer competitively priced annual passes. Depending on which pass you choose, you can gain complimentary tickets to give to friends and family without annual passes or discounted tickets for additional tickets purchased at the gate which is unique in the theme park annual park market. No matter which pass you choose, you can’t beat the incredible value of Legoland!
Rides and Attractions
Legoland theme park offers a great number of age-appropriate rides and attractions that range from gentle rides to full coasters that are great for kids of all ages. Whether your kid is more timid or adventurous, there will be a number of rides for them in Legoland Florida. The Duplo land is geared more toward smaller guests, with gentle rides and play areas perfect for little ones. If your kids are a bit older, they will probably enjoy faster roller coaster style rides such as Flying School, Mia’s Riding Adventure, and the Dragon. In addition to rides, you’ll also find plenty of play areas that let your kids get all their extra energy out, and plenty of water tables and splash pads to keep them cool during the warm days.
The water park at Legoland is also filled with fun, featuring 14 water slides that will keep you cool and allow for plenty of fun!

In addition to alligators, Gatorland features also exotic creatures such as crocodiles, birds, snakes, tortoises, and more. For a uniquely Floridian theme park experience, Gatorland is a must!
4th of July in Orlando

If you are planning a summer in Orlando, consider centering your trip around the 4th of July holiday to see some of the best fireworks shows in the nation.

Orlando is home to two professional soccer teams: Orlando City SC with Major League Soccer, and Orlando Pride with National Women’s Soccer League.
