Orlando is the perfect city for kids! There are endless activities from parks, to museums, and much, much more. Let’s check out some of the most popular things to do in Orlando with toddlers!
1. Orlando Science Center
OSC is the perfect way to pass the time with toddlers. It’s a great way to cool off in the ac during the hot summer months, and hide from the rain during the storms. You can’t go wrong! There’s Toddler Town for little ones 0-2, and Kids Town for kids up to 7 years old! There’s so much learning through interactive play, even the grown ups will have fun! Check out what else there is to do at OSC here.
While not exactly in Orlando, it is a quick 1 hour drive away. Legoland has to be the perfect park for toddlers ever! There is an entire side of the park dedicated to toddler rides and it’s a quite sizable area. That being said if you decide to venture to other areas of the park the rides for toddlers are basically nonexistent.
3. Central Florida Zoo
Located north of Orlando in Sanford lies one of the best zoos I have ever been to, the Central Florida Zoo. They are a nonprofit zoo, which means your ticket sales go directly to the upkeep of the animals and conservation efforts. You’ll do a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. And don’t worry, the zoo is stroller friendly!
4. Icon Park
Icon Park is a great spot for locals and tourists alike because it’s great for ANY age, even toddlers! There’s many great attractions like The Wheel, Museum of Illusion, and Sea Life Orlando. Sea Life has been one of our favorites, and we’ve gone multiple times. It’s a good rainy day activity and the 360 degree tank is worth the visit! Want to know all you can do at Icon Park? Click here!
5. Animal Kingdom
Notice how I could have just said Disney, but no. While each park has its pros and cons for bringing toddlers or babies, Animal Kingdom is our top pick for going with kids. We go with our toddler and infant and it’s by far our favorite park. I think we can ride Kilimanjaro Safaris everyday and not get tired of it. Not to mention the animal habitats spread all around the park, and who doesn’t like to see Sea Otters? Dinoland is also a great area to hang with the whole family and grab a bite at Restaurantosaurus.
6. The Crayola Experience
The Crapola Experience, located right next to the Florida Mall, is a great option to spend the day with kids! They now have Toddler Tuesdays from 10 am – 1 pm where toddlers can enjoy special crafts and activities! These include trying out toddler geared products, a character meet and greet, play time at Toddler Town or Stomp and Play, as well as a specialty snack pack!
7. Anywhere, Really!
Okay I know how it sounds, but Orlando really is a great place to be with the whole family. You can find awesome playgrounds and parks like near Lake Eola or Ivanhoe Village. Head over to The Crayon Experience for a colorful time. Or walk around Disney Springs or City Walk for food and fun!
