Do Something for FREE

Any school holiday can be tough on parents, as we all balance so much in our lives!

So make it easy on yourself and enjoy some of the many free kids’ activities in Orlando. Some of our favorite free ideas include Mead Botanical Garden, Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, Bonnet Springs Park, and much more.

Of course, local playgrounds like Winter Park Community and Phelps Park are always free too, and the springtime sunshine is making it a good idea to enjoy some time at the local playgrounds with shade.

Petting Zoos

Springtime is the perfect time to head to one of the many petting zoos in Orlando. Imagine all the cute baby chicks, ducklings, and other adorable animals you can meet. Just be sure to view all the information beforehand. Orlando is full of cute family farms, but many have limited operating hours.

Classes and Workshops

With kids being out of school for spring break you may want some help keeping them entertained. There are many free classes and workshops for kids around town (including special FREE Spring Break classes at IKEA). You can enjoy hands-on activities for free.

And plenty of local businesses have some really cool classes for kids that are worth the money.

You might be able to snag a spot at one of the spring break camps in Orlando if needed.

FREE Disney World Experiences

Any parent in Orlando knows that the magic of Walt Disney World comes at a price. But there are quite a few free things you can do at Disney World.

This time of year you can embark on your own monorail tour to see Easter displays at Walt Disney World hotels.

See the Easter Bunny

With Easter occurring on Sunday March 31, 2024 now is a good time to make plans to meet the Easter Bunny in Orlando. There are lots of fun events and special places to visit.

Reconnect with Nature

Before we know it the summer heat will be here. So before we spend all our time at the local splash pads or staying indoors, get out and connect with nature. There are so many beautiful outdoor places in Orlando.

Spring Break is a good time to slow down, if only for a few moments. Check out some of my favorite places to connect with nature and have a mental health break.
