The Top Kids' Birthday Party Venues in Orlando
With three kids, one thing I’ve learned in celebrating birthdays is that booking a party at a local venue is less stressful than a party at home. These venues take the hassle out of party planning, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy your child’s special day. Read on for some of the best places to book a kid's birthday party in Orlando and Central Florida.
Forgoing a party this year? Plan an extra-special family day for your birthday kiddo with a trip to Legoland Florida or the Kennedy Space Center. For families who prefer to celebrate at home this year, check out our guide to virtual and social distancing birthday parties.
As COVID circumstances unfold, check directly with a venue website for updates on safety protocols, including mask requirements and temperature checks. Keep your family and others safe by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing measures. If a venue appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find other exciting options. Photos in this post were taken pre-pandemic.
Still prefer to stay at home? Browse through Poppins@Home for new and exciting classes and workshops for children. Kids will enjoy Brick City building camp and DC and Marvel Superhero camp. Young ones will enjoy learning Spanish through Music and Movement while the entire family can cuddle up for storytime and crafts.
