Enjoy Hollywood Drive-In Golf
While you won’t be immersed in chilly temperatures when visiting Orlando in the fall, travelers can take time to indulge in milder weather overall. This can be a big bonus when looking to spend time outside with your fellow travelers! If you’re the type of Orlando fall visitor that enjoys a bit of friendly competition, head over to Hollywood Drive-In Golf at University CityWalk while you’re in town.

Both Sci-Fi and Supernatural décor give this stop the perfect ambiance for a fall getaway.
Take Your Fall Views Up and Away at Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park

Try an Airboat Ride with Spirit of the Swamp
While it’s easy to focus on the theme park fun when you make your way to Orlando in the fall, this part of the state is also notoriously lush with swamp and incredible creatures that call nearby waterways home! One of the most fun, thrilling, and perhaps iconic routes to seeing it all in Florida style in the autumn is to book an airboat ride while you’re here. The professionals at Spirit of the Swamp are more than happy to help travelers enjoy this experience of discovering mesmerizing marshes in a 6-passenger airboat upon request.

Don’t Leave Disney or Universal Off the Itinerary!
A fall trip to Orlando should definitely include time at Disney theme parks. These iconic and magical stops are designed to inspire at every turn. Visitors of all ages will find that autumn in Orlando comes with plenty of opportunities to take part in Disney parades, celebrations, and events that are decidedly themed around both fall and Halloween fun.
