Best Things To Do in Orlando in September with Kids: Fairy Fun, Halloween, and Festivals

School is back in session for most Central Florida kids, and more and more in-person events are popping up on the calendar! We've rounded up all the best things to do in Orlando this weekend and for the whole month of September.

Stay local with a theme park festivals and fairy garden strolls, or take the family and escape with a getaway to another Florida destination. Take advantage of the weekend with a stay at the beach or a day trip to one of the many local natural springs. And at the end of the month there are a few fall and Halloween events starting to get kids excited for the upcoming holiday—including some pretty cool Halloween drive-thrus, the Harvest Holler Corn Maze, an impressive pumpkin patch, and the SeaWorld Halloween Spectacular.

Whatever you choose to do, stay tuned to Mommy Poppins Orlando for updates on local fall festivities including corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and even more Halloween events!
