There is so much to do in Orlando, Florida that to get the most out of your precious vacation time there, you really do need to plan an itinerary before your trip.

If Disney is not your thing, there are literally hundreds of attractions and things to do and see.
Alternatives To Disney For Kids
How about visiting Wonderworks where you can battle the elements in the earthquake and hurricane simulators or join up with your family or group and play laser tag!
The Titanic exhibition is a moving and unforgettable experience for adults and children. There is an interactive tour with many artifacts from the ship and stories about some of the people whose lives ended (and some who survived), the day the boat that couldn’t sink, did!
Dinoworld is a super way for small kids to experience Dinosaurs for themselves. With over 150 Dinosaur models to discover (all life-sized), all you need to take along is a picnic for a fascinating family day out.
Gatorland is also a great day out for adults and children alike.
If Sports Are More To Your Liking:
- Visit the Wekiva Springs State Park. With almost 7,000 acres to explore, there are ample opportunities to camp there and enjoy swimming, canoeing, boating and fishing.
- If golf is your thing, you will find many vacation packages built around the sport. If you just want to play a round or two during your visit, the Orange County National Golf Center is a complex including two excellent 18 hole courses.
- Visit Cypress Island for horseback riding, airboats and jet skiing. Nature walks will let you and your family enjoy a mini safari as the island is also home to many exotic animals.
