This blog is all about the grown ups! Have you ever wondered what there is to do in Orlando besides going to the theme parks? What about things to do in Orlando for adults? Central Florida is the home to one of the most visited theme parks in the world: Walt Disney World. Over 50,000 people visit WDW parks each day, including thousands of starry-eyed kids eager to meet their favorite Disney characters and make the most of what feels like the best vacation of their lifetime.
If you’re one of the lucky ones that had the chance to make magical childhood memories at the land of Mouse when you were young, chances are you hold those memories dear. But, if you’re traveling with little ones of your own now, with a spouse or friends, you may be wondering how to make the most of your trip without staying strictly inside the Disney bubble. Luckily, Orlando has plenty to offer vacationers aside from the parks (and there are a lot of parks).
Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria is the perfect theme park resort, within close proximity of top tourist spots, and all without the price tag. If you have little kids in your family and are planning a trip, chances are you’ve heard the vacation plea. You know how it goes. It’s some variation of, “Can we go to Disney World?!” repeated several times in quick succession. Heading to Disney World is a big deal (and a big expense) but there are lots of ways to mitigate the cost while having an unforgettable vacation.
One of these money-saving strategies is to stay at a resort that is not located on Disney property. Many of these resorts offer exciting amenities that cater specifically to families. If you’re planning a trip and looking for ways to get out of the Disney bubble while still giving the kids plenty of time to enjoy the land of Mouse, consider vacationing at Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria.
