Parks like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Walt Disney World and Legoland will also spark the imaginations of kids of all ages. Plus, who doesn't enjoy roller coasters?
While the theme parks are the main draw in Orlando, there are also some excellent museums, eateries and shopping inside the city.
The possibilities are numerous and after enjoying a few days exploring all the city has to offer, you might want an afternoon or two just to relax by the pool at your hotel. Keep in mind, a family vacation in Orlando means that you are also only a short road trip away from the beach.
