We are members of the Ontario Science Centre. Toronto is pretty good but more focussed to the mid to older kids (and older/older kids ie adults).
For families with young kids or even pre-teens, Orlando Science Center has done a great job and is the...More
The adult admission fee of $21 is high for what you get. The interactive exhibits are mainly aimed at children and there's a lot of empty space in this place. They have a weather exhibit and the dinosaurs are interesting. There are a few nature/animal...More

Our family went here on a rainy weekday and were pleased with the place. Having been to a handful of children’s museums we found this one particularly nice since it was clean and was not cluttered. It kept us busy for approximately four hours and...More

Up-front I'll tell you this science center is targeted at kids, but there's plenty for adults to do too. The exhibits are almost all interactive and when we visited they were all fucntional and clean.
The center is broken up into different themed areas -...More
The Orlando science center was a nice detour from all the other tourist stuff we did during the week. Our family has a membership for our local science museum, which the OSC honors, since we are more than 90 miles away. The are part of...More
Our rough itinerary for May 31-June 14, please comment (8 Replies)
OK so I have a rough draft of our itinerary. Before I go any further I will say that our children are 9 years apart (DS 15, DD 6) and DD can have meltdowns so we tend to split up. Also my husband gets sick on rides so I have to do all the fun rides with the kids!!!! :D So we have actually reserved 2 cars for the 10 days in Orlando, and just 1 for the 4 days in Indian Rocks/Tampa. May 31 Thu- arrive, have dinner, grocery shopping June 1 Fri- Animal Kingdom for DD and myself, ADR lunch at...More

Non-stimulating things to do with hyperactive 6 yr old (2 Replies)
We are planning a trip in August to Orlando with my step-daughter and her family. We will only be doing 1 day at Disney due to our oldest grandson's temperment - he is easily overwhelmed and very hyperactive, so we think that, for this trip, one day at MK will suffice - we're planning to take a rest in the middle of the day and doing non-park Disney activities (like going to Downtown Disney and a character breakfast) on other days to keep in the Disney spirit. I am hoping for some advice...More

Gatorland would be fine for the boys, they now have Gator Gully Splash Park where the boys could enjoy a "squirtfest"! Sea World would also be another option, the shows would entertain and are not very long, there is also water features for cooling down as well as areas for just playing and climbing a rope maze.
We are thinking of going to the Orlando Science Center to see Titanic Exhibition and Sky Watch. Is it worth an afternoon/evening of our holiday?

We saw this on I drive and it was brilliant - it has since moved to the science centre so I cannot say how the set up is there - we did see it in the science centre in Paris and was very similar. Very interactive and informative - everyone knows the story and it is great to get a deeper insite into it and how truly cold it was (won't say anything else dont want to ruin it for you). It was nice to do something different from the usual Orlando attractions
