There is a wealth of places to let your kids blow off steam in Orlando but only one that gives them the opportunity to bowl, play video games, build and dine with dinosaurs. That place is Downtown Disney ® and if you’re looking for a place to keep the kids occupied and having a blast here are the top Downtown Disney ® places to play:

Splitsville Luxury Lanes – What kid doesn’t love bowling? Splitsville Luxury Lanes is the perfect place to let your kids let loose, and you too for that matter as the venue offers plenty of fun for everybody in the family. Putting a new spin on bowling, the 50,000 square foot facility spans two floors and offers 30 lanes, fist-class food, live music and dancing, outdoor patio dining, pool tables and much more for everybody in the family to enjoy.

DisneyQuest – There is no better way to let the kids play the day away than with five floors of fun than at the indoor interactive theme park, DisneyQuest. No matter what kind of video game your child is interested in, DisneyQuest has a game or experience that will fall into his or her interests. From 3D encounters to virtual worlds and classic video games DisneyQuest will keep the kids happy for hours and you’ll be happy long after they fall asleep in the car ride home!

LEGO Store – You don’t have to visit LEGOLAND Florida (although we recommend it) to spend a day playing with LEGOs in Orlando. The LEGO Store in Downtown Disney is the largest LEGO store in the country, which means there are plenty of ways to build your way to fun there. In fact, you don’t even have to go inside the store for the kids to experience LEGOs. There are plenty of LEGO displays outside to marvel at (but make sure you do go inside. It’s amazing!)

T-Rex – The fun doesn’t have to stop at lunch or dinner either. Sometimes dining with kids can be exhausting if there isn’t enough to keep them occupied but at T-Rex restaurant you’ll be lucky if they sit down to eat.  Kids can travel back 200 million years ago and experience life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, including a 15 foot tall T. Rex as well as different themed rooms full of a color-changing ice cavern and a fern forest with giant wasps. There is even a Paleo Zone where you can dig for hidden dinosaur fossils, pan for treasures in Discovery Creek and learn about “the time before time” through interactive displays!
