    Im heading back to Orlando in a couple of weeks. We have family there and visit often. We have done the Eye, but didnt realize all this other stuff was there! My daughter would love all of these – we will have to choose a few to do. Mini golf? Chocolate???!?!?! I dont know! PS we love the shake shack there… to me eating is a to-do 🙂

  • Mina

    Im going to Orlando next month and these tips are sooo valuable! Thanks a lot!

  • Kay

    OMG I love driving tracks! Thanks for compiling a list!

  • Julia_K

    So many things to do! How much time would one need to cover all of that AND the theme parks?

    • Katie

      If you are heading to Orlando for two weeks, these are great choices to do on those days you aren’t at theme parks or in the evening! Most of these places stay open until late 🙂

  • Andrea Mujica

    These are great! Being a local from orlando, it’s great to see other people recommending things other than the big parks.

  • Meg

    I haven’t been to Orlando in AGES. I’ll have to go back!

  • Aditi

    Did someone say chocolate? I’d love to dive into a pool of gooey goodness in that chocolate factory. Wonder how they come up with such creative and whacky buildings like the Upside House – so much fun. Cheers!!

  • Tyra

    It’s sad that I’ve never been to Orlando. Texas is just too big and takes forever to get out of. These are some amazing suggestions. It would be awesome if the Chocolate Kingdom gave golden tickets! I would feel so special. I can’t believe that there is even a chocolate museum with statues!


  • Eleonore

    I’m originally from close by to Orlando and haven’t done half of these things!! I’ll have to remember them for when I go home next 🙂

  • lexieanimetravel

    Just a perfect guide for those who are heading to Orlando, I’m surely gonna save this. all those places looks beautiful especially the Pirates Cove.

  • Helene

    So many cool activities! I love Escape Games, I’ve only done one but it was awesome:D I’ve also been to the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and really enjoyed it:) Thanks for all the useful tips!

  • Travelquartz

    this list is awesome for adventure lovers, Orlando eye reminded me of London Eye but I bet they are very different. The views from the top would be spectacular I bet.
