USA – The ultimate guide to fun in Orlando

Widely recognized as the most popular destination for families, Orlando offers adults – or kids at heart – plenty of their own adventures and opportunities to explore. Armed with a childlike sense of wonder and a thirst for adventure, grown-ups will delight in Orlando’s diversity – no kids required.

Be a Big Kid at the Theme Parks 

VIP tours are a great way to feel like a kid again, while experiencing the parks at a more leisurely pace. Private VIP Tours at Walt Disney World Resort include door-to-door transportation from guests’ resorts to the theme parks, VIP viewing areas for nighttime spectaculars and a customizable itinerary. Universal Orlando Resort also offers the VIP Tour Experience to give guests exclusive backstage access and instant boarding to the most popular rides, including all attractions at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

Another grown-up way to explore the parks is to visit during one of the many annual food events, including SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival in the spring and Epcot International Food & Wine Festival in the fall.  

Relax at the Resort Pool 

From lazy rivers and secluded grottos to private cabanas, an afternoon at one of Orlando’s resort pools is a great way for adults to take in the year-round warmth. Some of the more notable adult-only pools include Hilton Orlando’s “Quiet Resort Pool,” complete with private whirlpool and cabanas; the cabanas and adults-only pool at JW Marriott Bonnet Creek Resort and Spa; and “The Oasis” at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, which has underwater audio and a Jacuzzi for ultimate relaxation.

Enjoy a Night on the Town 

Orlando isn’t just about daytime fun at theme parks and resort pools. Adults can also indulge in after-hours fun throughout the destination – like at the incredible nighttime entertainment districts or upscale speakeasies.  

Take a Beer or Winery Tour 

Those looking for a refreshing way to spend the afternoon or evening can “hop” over to one of Orlando’s many breweries for a taste of local brews.  

Explore Like a Local 

Beyond the theme parks and attractions, Orlando’s neighborhoods and nearby cities offer endless adventures with dining, nightlife, arts & culture, outdoor recreation, shopping and more. 

Experience Orlando’s Romantic Side 

While Orlando offers lots of fun and exciting activities, visitors can also experience opportunities to celebrate at many of the city’s most romantic settings.
