Have a Fun Florida Family Reunion!
If you are planning on having a family reunion in Orlando, then you better get working on that family reunion itinerary! With all of the things to do in Orlando, you’ll need some kind of schedule to keep the family on task without getting divided.
Here are some things to do in Orlando that are sure to be a blast during your reunion:
We already touched on Disney World, but it is worth a mention again because it is hands down Orlando’s #1 attraction! People come from all over the world just to visit Disney, and seemingly grow a pair of Mickey Mouse ears while leaving with smiles on their faces. From the many different kingdoms to choose from, Magic Kingdom is probably the most popular and well-known park in Disney. There is certainly something to do there for every age and stage!
Also in Orlando is Universal Studios, packed full of activities and many simulator rides. Make sure you swing by Diagon Alley for some rides and shopping with Harry Potter and his friends! Don’t miss the Simpsons ride; it’s a real crowd pleaser! Then there’s the Oh, and how can I forget The Mummy ride? It’s a blast!
Islands of Adventure is the neighbor park to Universal Studios, and you can even buy “park hopper” passes to go to both parks during your stay. One of the biggest attractions at Islands of Adventure is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Sip on some birch beer while you are captivated by your surroundings, something every young wizard or witch should experience for themselves.
Love aquariums and amusement parks? SeaWorld is the place to go and is great for a family reunion! Don’t miss the famous Shamu performing tricks for an entire audience, and all of the great water animal exhibits throughout!
There are quite a few big water parks to choose from when planning your family reunion. Orlando has nice water parks such as Volcano Bay, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, and Aquatica! Check the websites for each park to see which one would suit you the most.
Medieval Times is the nation’s #1 and longest running dinner attraction, putting you right in the middle of the Medieval era, complete heroic knights on horseback, live jousting, falconry, and a hearty four-course supper fit for a king!
It’s a real life game of Clue where you and your family are the detectives, working to solve these hilariously outrageous mystery crimes! But of course, what sly sleuth can solve a mystery on an empty stomach? Dine on a tasty three-course dinner and unlimited refreshments to help you keep your crime-solving energy up!
Get ready to laugh at this hilarious comedy dinner show! You and the entire family, kids included, will have a great time laughing and participating in this high-energy, interactive show, while dining on unlimited hand-tossed pizza, salad, and popcorn!
