Five Fun Family Vacation Activities Your Kids Will Love!

Summer is here yet again! For those of us with kids, it’s time to start thinking about what to do with the kids! Me being the Disney lover that I am, my mind automatically goes to Disney! So what can you do at Disney outside of the theme parks that your kids will love?

1. Disney’s Fort Wilderness: What a great area for kids! Kids can enjoy horseback riding, swimming, archery, boating, fishing, and lots of space to run around. Fort Wilderness offers camping, space for RV’s and family cabins. What’s best about this resort is that it’s a quick boat ride to Magic Kingdom!

2. DisneyQuest is an indoor amusement park that lets kids design their own roller coaster and then ride in the simulated coaster, play with virtual pirates and ride a virtual Jungle Cruise. DisneyQuest is located in the West End of Downtown Disney.

3. Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park: Need some time away from the parks on a hot day? Head over to Blizzard Beach, which features one of the world’s tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides. It also has slides and rides for the whole family.

4. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park: Here is another great place to cool down in the hot Florida weather! This is a great waterpark as it has fast waterslides and activities for all ages. You can surf in the Surf Pool and snorkel with sharks in Shark Reef!

5. Characters in Flight: Soar 400 feet above Downtown Disney in this tethered hot air balloon operated  by Aerophile. You can experience a breath-taking 360 degree view of the Walt Disney World Resort up to 10 miles away!

Summertime can always be a little stressful! Why not head to the Most Magical Place on Earth and partake in some experiences outside of the theme parks? For more great activities for your kids, go to

  1. A trip to Williamsburg, Virginia provides the rare opportunity of literally stepping into history while still enjoying all the modern comforts of home. The area’s biggest attraction is America’s Historic Triangle, which is made up of: Historic Jamestowne, the first permanent English settlement in the New World, the Yorktown Battlefield, site of the last major battle of the American Revolutionary War and of course Colonial Williamsburg, world’s largest living history museum.
    Colonial Williamsburg is a treat for history buffs and younger students of American history. It is a re-creation of 18th-century Williamsburg comprised of 301 acres of historic buildings and gardens where costumed docents pursue their trades and depict aspects of Colonial life. You can visit the blacksmith, take part in the everyday life of the city and interact with its citizens while large “streetscape” performances take place as well as smaller demonstrations.
