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.*

    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

  2. Megan Short on December 24, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    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

  3. Lisandro on December 24, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    i live here why am i watching this

  4. Mrs Hible on December 24, 2019 at 8:16 pm

    Great video I hope to take the children to Orlando one day I loved seeing all your different places. Xxx

    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.

  8. stephanie ayling on December 24, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    Thank you so much for this video. I’ve never heard of even half of these places, so interesting! Thank you xxx

  9. Lily Burkill on December 24, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    Loved this Katie x

  10. rosalyn hornby on December 24, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    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

  11. Sandra Sotelo on December 24, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    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

  12. Michelle Finney on December 24, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    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

  13. Isabelle Zammit on December 24, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    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?

  14. MacbarbieMichelle on December 24, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    thank you so much for your lovely tips!! ill definetly go these places!

  15. Candace Richie on December 24, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    thanks for the ideas

  16. WhosTEDDY on December 24, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    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.

  17. Aliena Marie on December 24, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    THANK YOU!!!!! Finally, a good video for great things to do with the rest of our vacation!!

  18. Rosie & the Girls on December 24, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    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

  19. S-B on December 24, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    Cut the bullshit, video starts at 3:00

  20. Marcia Smith on December 24, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    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

  21. lotgotbegot Smith on December 24, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    I was hoping to see more Orlando videos from you it was how I found your channel.

  22. Holly Mather on December 24, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    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

  23. A73HREE on December 24, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    Fwd to 2:53 to get over her speaking jibberish to pass 10 minutes for monetization of the video

  24. Oisin power on December 24, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    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

  25. Matilda Gane on December 24, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    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

  26. Margaret Moon on December 24, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    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.

  27. Quaker Daddy on December 24, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Do they allow oats in Orlando ?

  28. Gayathri Mahalingam on December 24, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    Katie you are sensational! Your videos are fab, especially the travel ones. You put so much effort in them and it really shows!

  29. Laura Radford on December 24, 2019 at 8:57 pm

    Going to Orlando in October so enjoyed this video 🙂

  30. Jessica Strickle on December 24, 2019 at 8:59 pm

    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

  31. Jaxx Life on December 24, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Fantastic video- great tips. I’ve done most of them apart from winter garden x

  32. Do Do Do on December 24, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Perfect! We love Florida and we’re going again this summer so this is great timing x

  33. Zak Balu on December 24, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    Shut up stop waffling I didn’t start for ages u just repeat ur self

  34. Katherine Forrest on December 24, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    Omg. I live in Orlando—Winter Park, specifically. I’m a sous chef here. This video tickled me pink!!

  35. Rhomulous1978 on December 24, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    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.
