For parents cringing over the thought of having extra stinky fingers and muddy shoes in their home, booking a birthday party venue may be best. There are so many pros to celebrating at a birthday party location rather than at home.
When the party place takes the reins, planning is simplified, clean-up is easier and parents can even be more present to enjoy it all (since the staff primarily assumes hosting duties). Translation… less stress, less mess! Orlando Parenting has rounded up the best birthday party venues in Orlando for 5- to 7-year-olds.
