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 vacation full of sand and sun, as well as some fun indoor rainy day activities in Orlando to escape the heat, or the rainy. Set your sights on the area and its many exciting entertainment offerings and you’ll build a vacation to keep you happy and busy during your stay and memories to last a lifetime.
Experience every color of the rainbow, even if you don’t get to see one outside on a rainy Orlando day. Spend some time at the Crayola Experience in the Florida Mall, a two-story, 70,000-square-foot experience featuring 26 hands-on activities to inspire budding artists. Catch a live manufacturing show and see just how crayons are made, make digital art on an interactive wall, create unique keepsakes, create in your own coloring page as you or your favorite character as the star, and even name and wrap your own Crayola crayon!
In the last several years, escape rooms have become a popular activity, rain or shine. While your favorite outdoor Orlando activities are put on hold for crummy weather, the fun can head indoors. Work together with your group members to solve a series of clues and puzzles and break out in 60 minutes to win the game. There are different themed rooms to choose from, 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 limitations or other concerns you may have, and make sure to bring a mask.
Located on International Drive with many of Orlando’s other must-see attractions, Madame Tussauds wax museum features life-size and life-like wax models of many U.S. top actors, sports stars, pop icons, political and historical figures, and many others. Each category or group of stars and celebrities is housed in its own room, and the figures are organized and placed in ways that beg for fun and silly photos with you and your group members in the shot, too. Want to see yourself carved in wax? You’ll have a three- to four-month wait, while the professional team of artists and sculptors perfect your image using over 200 different body measurements to capture everything that’s unique about you!
Escape the rain and indulge your sweet tooth at the same time. Chocolate and sweets lovers will want to add this to the top of the tour list when the rain has postponed the outdoor fun. Chocolate Kingdom, the Factory Adventure Tour, is an interactive tour that takes guests from the chocolate bean all the way to the creamy, delicious chocolate treats you love to savor. Your Personal Chocolate Tour Guide is joined by a “handsome prince,” as well as the prince’s dragon sidekick to guide you through a Cacao Tree Greenhouse, a one-of-a-kind Chocolate Museum, the Mystical River of Chocolate, and the Micro Batch Bean-to-the-Bar Factory that utilizes old-world machinery to produce the best treats. Enjoy samples throughout the 45-minute tour, and for an additional fee, you can customize your own chocolate bar to take home!
Experience the weird and fascinating right in Orlando! Take some time on a rainy day to visit some unbelievable exhibits. You’ll see artifacts and displays that will have you saying, “I don’t believe it!” The strange collection of world traveler Robert Ripley’s oddities – like a shrunken human head, odd fossilized creatures, and many other pieces from his crazy collection. Another unbelievable exhibit is centered around Mr. Ripley himself. At the height of his career, his average receipt of letters topped 3,000 letters a day for over 20 years. The statistic meant he was receiving more mail than any other individual in history to that point.
