Orlando the non-disney way

May 14, 2006  California Native with teenage son to grown up for Disney, but too young for Pleasure Island
4.0 of 5 bubbles based on 6 votes

This is a "To-Do" list for those of you who have had enough of Disney, but love Orlando for all the other exciting reasons. The following are things to do with a family with teenagers:

-Universal Islands of Adventure
-Discovery Cove
-Busch Gardens.. Take the Bus tour for $10.00 each person...what a deal!
-Kennedy Space Center...eat space ice cream
-swim a lot at the hotel pool
-Take in downtown disney and explore...go to Disneyquest...consider this a five star arcade for kids and grown ups alike
- make good use of all the hotel has to offer. If staying at a resort, split your days by swimming in the day and doing the parks every other day to keep everyone happy and not completly exhausted
