Every kid and kid-at-heart loves a fun theme park. Orlando’s many theme parks are the perfect place for the whole family to spend a day or a whole trip. There are many activities, attractions, rides, and more at each park, with individual flair that makes each unique.

It’s enough to keep everyone busy whether you’re there for a day, a week, or longer.
Chocolate Kingdom Factory Tour
Chocolate lovers of any age will want to add this sweet stop to the top of their must-see list of family friendly things to do in Orlando. Chocolate Kingdom’s Factory Adventure Tour is an interactive tour that takes visitors from the cocoa bean all the way to the creamy, delicious chocolate treats you enjoy. Your Personal Chocolate Tour Guide teams up with a “handsome prince” and the prince’s dragon sidekick to take you through a Cacao Tree Greenhouse, on to a unique Chocolate Museum, through the Mystical River of Chocolate, and finally the Micro Batch Bean-to-the-Bar Factory that uses old-world machinery to create delicious chocolate desserts. The 45-minute tour includes samples along the way, and for an additional fee you can customize your own chocolate bar at the end of the tour!
Experience every color of the rainbow during your family-friendly visit to Orlando – the Crayola rainbow that is. Spend some time at the Crayola Experience in The Florida Mall. The two-story, 70,000-square-foot attraction offers an experience featuring over 25 hands-on activities that will inspire budding arts of any age. Catch a live manufacturing show and see what goes in to making your favorite colors, make digital art on an interactive wall, create unique keepsakes or your own coloring page as you or your favorite character as the star, and even name and wrap your own Crayola crayon to take home.
Madame Tussauds Orlando
Located on International Drive along with many other must-see family-friendly attractions, Madame Tussauds wax museum houses many life-size and life-like wax models. Get up close and “meet” many of the U.S.’s top actors, sports stars, pop icons, political, historical figures, and others. Each category or group of stars and celebrities has its own room, and the figures are even organized and placed for great opportunities for fun selfies or family fun photos with everyone posed in the shot. If you want to see yourself carved in wax, it will take three to four months for the professional team of artists and sculptors to perfect your image using over 200 different body measurements to capture everything that’s unique about you.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
Kids and kids-at-heart are often the first to find the weird and strange fascinating. Experience the weird and fascinating artifacts and displays that will definitely have the whole family saying, “I don’t believe it!” Take in the strange collection of oddities, including a shrunken human head, odd fossilized creatures, and other pieces from world traveler Robert Ripley’s seemingly out-of-this-world collection. Another unbelievable exhibit is centered around Mr. Ripley himself: at the height of his career he averaged 3,000 letters a day for over 20 years, receiving more mail than any other individual in history to that point.
