10 COOL THINGS TO DO IN ORLANDO (THAT AREN'T DISNEY OR UNIVERSAL)
10 COOL THINGS TO DO IN ORLANDO (THAT AREN'T DISNEY OR UNIVERSAL)
Hello and welcome back to my channel. Today I am doing a video all about some cool things to do in Orlando that aren’t the main theme parks of Disney and Universal (which we also love). I get a fair few messages on instagram about Orlando and also on my blog- so I thought I might do the occasional Orlando video from time to time. It is our favourite place in the world and I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks in the time we have been going.
*Please note this video is not sponsored, nor has anyone asked me to do it, but over the years of going to Orlando we have had a great relationship with Visit Orlando, who have got us press tickets to certain attractions.*

ICON Orlando- https://iconorlando.com
Celebration- (a few miles from Disney World)

Thank you for sharing some great ideas, we are returning in April 2020 and it’s going to be a Disney & Unversal free holiday so your recommendations were greatly received
Never been to Orlando in my life but we’re taking the kids for the first time this summer. This is a great video for me because we won’t be able to afford it ever again probably, so I want us to explore Orlando as well whilst we’re there x
i live here why am i watching this
Great video I hope to take the children to Orlando one day I loved seeing all your different places. Xxx
Cool video I’m going for 1st time in May this helps I subscribe
Something she didnt mention was Fun Spot in Orlando, home of Olando’s only wooden rollercoaster. You can go in the evening and get a wrist band for a discounted price, there is no wait times for rides hardley and they have 3 go kart tracks and a slick tack along with carnival rides and a sky coaster. Fun Spot is definitely worth a visit, it is open til midnight and 8pm is a good time to arrive. My 6 year old enjoyed the small steel rollercoaster there over and over and the wooden rollercoaster is very smooth for a wooden coaster.
Tip: I am from Dallas, a place full of stress and traffic. GPS to avoid highways and tolls, tolls will rack up and highways are crowded and non moving. You will thank me.
Thank you so much for this video. I’ve never heard of even half of these places, so interesting! Thank you xxx
Loved this Katie x
Thanks for the advice. We go to Orlando with grandkids june next year our first holiday abroad. but since booked lost my job through health reasons so no Disney theme park but nice to see some cheaper things to do thanks Katie x
I have a trip to Orlando coming up in a few days but it’s literally a quick 1 and a half day trip for a concert. If I had a bigger budget I would have stayed a few extra days to check some of these places out. Definitely going to make time to do the wheel at icon park though
Would love a video on how you book your holiday, ie do you do a package or arrange hotel, flights separately etc? I’m desperate to go next year but we have 4 children and none are really theme park lovers so I’m not sure if it’s worth it. The cost is humongous too and I’ve no idea where to start! I get overwhelmed when I look online with the choice and the cost so I don’t really get anywhere. The kids are 5, 11 twins and 12. Thank you, love your videos xx
Thank you for the tips. I started researching De Leon Springs State park as I had never heard about it before this video. However I cannot find any entrance fee besides the parking. How much does it cost to swim there please?
thank you so much for your lovely tips!! ill definetly go these places!
thanks for the ideas
Good job. As a local real estate agent, I like taking a day off with the wife and being a tourist at the smaller venues.
THANK YOU!!!!! Finally, a good video for great things to do with the rest of our vacation!!
Hi Katie, we are hoping to go to Orlando next year with our 3 girls, would love to see a “what to pack” video. Sounds silly but always good to get opinions from someone who has been xx
Cut the bullshit, video starts at 3:00
You may not want to say but realistically what budget do I need to allow for a family of 5 to access this sort of holiday July / August time of year
I was hoping to see more Orlando videos from you it was how I found your channel.
What a great video idea. I am going back to Orlando in June with my fiancé because we loved it last year, we are going to go back to Disney and Universal but we have been looking at other things to do aswell so this video has come in really handy for us and given us some more ideas so thank you 🙂 x
Fwd to 2:53 to get over her speaking jibberish to pass 10 minutes for monetization of the video
I know it’s a theme park but if you are going to discovery cove, you should rent a cabana they are pricy but its worth it
Thanks, great video.. Saved securely in my favs for when i have enough to go. Sure to win me brownie points with my children ha. X
If your kiddos are older, I would say middle school and up, I might try the Escapology, https://www.escapology.com/en/orlando-fl/. I went there for a work thing around the same time you were visiting Disney. It’s a lot of fun and a different thing to do.
Do they allow oats in Orlando ?
Katie you are sensational! Your videos are fab, especially the travel ones. You put so much effort in them and it really shows!
Going to Orlando in October so enjoyed this video 🙂
Fab video Katie! We’re off to Orlando in just over four weeks and this has really helped! We’re only doing one day at Disney as we wanted to do other things whilst we’re there and this has given me lots of ideas 🙂 xx
Fantastic video- great tips. I’ve done most of them apart from winter garden x
Perfect! We love Florida and we’re going again this summer so this is great timing x
Shut up stop waffling I didn’t start for ages u just repeat ur self
Omg. I live in Orlando—Winter Park, specifically. I’m a sous chef here. This video tickled me pink!!
Fyi – video starts @ 2.45min.
Very informative and totally worth a view. Thanks for the tips!! Will definitely try some of them.
Still collecting your advice for Orlando and loving it. Can’t wait until we can book our first trip when I graduate.
