    Hi Guys.

    Travelling to Orlando from the UK next Spring break again.

    We normally only do Disney every other year but prices were so good we have decided to return next year again ( we were lucky to go for three weeks this spring break).

    We will be doing a few days of Disney but what else would people recommend to do for kids in the local area.

    We have done the following so wondered if there were any other local gems to share?
    Sea world
    Busch gardens
    Gatorland
    Legoland

    Kids will be 7 and 11.

    Can you just but a water park admission? How much is it currently?

    Thank you so much.

    what about an inexpensive cruise out of Port Canaveral or Tampa/ If you are willing to drive further it is about 4 hours to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. Look at Carnival, NCl or RCCL

    I've heard the Orlando Science Center is really good, and I would love to do the Space Center!

    Here are some more ideas:

    And yes, we have bought single-day water park tickets.

    We are doing one day at Kennedy Space Center and a swamp tour. My kids (4, 8 & 13) are excited to ride on an airboat and see alligators
