When you take your teenager to Orlando, you’re creating lifelong memories that you’ll cherish forever. With their seemingly unlimited energy and desire to experience everything there is to see, it can sometimes feel challenging to keep teens engaged with the trip. Consider these 3 non theme park Orlando adventures to add a little adventure to your trip.

1. Dinner Shows

There are numerous dinner shows available in Orlando, including Medieval Times, where you sit and dine while watching a jousting themed adventure story, and the Pirates Dinner Adventure, where you eat on a replica of an 18th century Spanish ship. In both of these shows, guests can take part in the action and get to experience some truly unique shows.


2. Discovery Cove

During this hands-on experience, you’ll be immersed in the ocean world. You’ll get to feed exotic birds, swim with dolphins, and snorkel in a pool filled with rays and tropic fish. There are only a limited number of guests admitted each day, which can make getting in a challenge, but it will be well worth it with the hands-on experiences and one-on-one attention you’ll get from trainers.


3. Shopping Experiences Abound

For the teens who love to shop for unique accessories, clothes, toys, and other products they can’t get at home, there are tons of special shopping experiences to be had. Head to Downtown Disney to shop at the LEGO store located at Disney World area, visit CityWalk, located between the two Universal Orlando theme parks, or check out the nearby outlet malls. No matter where you choose to go, your teenager will love spending a day shopping in Orlando.
