9 Best Hayrides in Orlando for Frolicking Fall Family Outing

As much as we love this time of year, it can get quite busy! With so many Orlando fall events around town, there are precious pumpkin patches for snapping photos, and corn mazes to explore. Gosh, that’s a lot of time on our feet and walking around. Thankfully there are quite a few hayrides around town so you can rest your feet a bit. We’ve rounded up the best Orlando hayrides!

Best Orlando Hayrides

A Lot of Pumpkins located at Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest is full of family fun. The maze at this fall festival is fairly simple and winds through tall fencing. It is not actually through corn like other corn mazes in Orlando. Still, there is plenty of shade, so many cute areas, and plenty of refreshments for sale.
