The year-round sun and warmth of Florida make it an ideal destination any time of year. When you’re looking for a getaway that includes plenty of fun in the sun, pack your bags, gather your loved ones, and set your sights on the Orlando area and its many exciting attractions. There’s so much to do, you’ll be able to build a unique and memorable trip that will keep everyone happy and busy throughout the stay. If the whole family is coming, including your fur babies, there are some activities and pet friendly attractions in orlando that welcome your pup with open arms.
City Parks & Outdoor Activities
While not a single attraction, many of Orlando’s parks offer a place for both humans and dogs to romp and explore. Many parks have leash regulations, and all require you to pick up after your pet. Some Orlando parks are made specifically for pups and even offer things like water to keep them hydrated while they play. There are also many hiking and biking trails throughout the area that welcome leashed dogs. These trails may also be frequented by riders on horseback, so please share the trail and make sure to pick up after your pet. Enjoy water sports with your furry family members and go canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding with your pup on board. No matter the water activity you choose, make sure your pup is well-behaved and secure throughout the duration of the trip. Many of the major theme parks offer pet kennels near the front entrance on a first come, first serve basis, but don’t allow your pup in the park.
There is a myriad of restaurants in the Orlando area that offer pet-friendly, outdoor dining options. Contact the restaurant of your choice to inquire about their dog-friendly status. Some may even offer your pup a bowl of water or a special treat while you enjoy your own meal.
Fun Spot America Theme Park
While many theme parks and entertainment venues don’t allow pets, this one welcomes them with open arms. The park with locations in Orlando and Kissimmee is dog friendly to leashed animals. Your pup can’t join you on rides, but make sure to get plenty of photo ops, play the park’s games, or enjoy a quick snack at the picnic tables. The park also hosts several dog-friendly events throughout the year, including pet adoption days where your pup can find a new friend and other days where pets are pampered.
You’ll no doubt pick up some souvenirs from the many Orlando adventures you’ll experience, but some visitors will want to visit area malls and outlets to score souvenirs, too. If you absolutely must take your furry friend with you on your retail therapy outing, there are a few places you and your pup won’t want to miss. Orlando Premium Outlets and Orlando International Premium Outlets each boast over 150 stores offering brand name items, along with local shops. Leashed dogs are welcome in the common areas, and stores with posted signs, but not in the food court. Orlando Outlet Marketplace has over 20 brand name stores in its outdoor setting. Leashed pets are also welcome in the common areas and some stores. Orlando Premium Outlets is located at 8200 Vineland Avenue. Orlando International Premium Outlets is located at 4951 International Drive, and Orlando Outlet Marketplace is located at 5269 International Drive. Each store has its own hours and pet policies.
Mennello Museum of American Art

Not only does the museum itself offer these pet-friendly events, but it’s also surrounded by a dog-friendly park!
