Orlando's indoor playgrounds are perfect for hot days and rainy or cold weather. These indoor play spaces provide an outlet for kids to burn off energy and ignite their creativity through interactive play. Some of these venues even offer free admission, making them budget-friendly. And, of course, the indoor playgrounds below serve as great choices for hosting a birthday party.


Remember to bring (or purchase) socks for both kids and adults, as many places require them. Below, check out our recommendations for indoor fun when outdoor playgrounds are not an option, and find more ideas in our Orlando Indoor Activities Guide.
