There are many things you can count on during your stay with Magnolia Villas in beautiful Orlando, including a comfortable luxurious lifestyle to which you will happily grow accustomed, the fresh and delicious meals you will find in our restaurants, and of course, an exciting getaway filled with adventures big and small! From alligators to zebras (at Gatorland and the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens), your bucket list is guaranteed to be a long one, but what happens if it begins to rain? Does a rainy day automatically put an end to your fun? The answer is absolutely not! This guide to all the activities in Orlando you will be able to enjoy when the skies open up will ensure that every minute of your stay is destined to be memorable.
Gray Skies WILL Clear
Just as the song tells us, this rain will not last forever, and the heartiest of travelers understand the fun that can be had at the house the mouse built, especially in the rain! As long as there is no thunder and lightning, a rainy day spent at Disney World is the best way to fill those vacation hours; the worst of the crowds will be trying to find indoor activities and the lines will be short! Many of the rides take place under cover of a roof, keeping you dry, or you can grab a sit-down dinner at any of the restaurants in the park and wait for the sun to appear once again.
Oh, How the World Has Changed!
If you have spent any time at all on Instagram or TikTok, you know the value of a good background, and the Orlando Wall Crawl helps you do that! Located at 1016 W Church Suite Suite C and offering over 4500 square feet of air-conditioned coolness, this warehouse of backdrops can help you become the star of your favorite social networking site while you stay dry. Featuring a variety of colorful and unique backdrops, including Christmas, graduation, and glamour themes, the admission fee gives you an hour of unlimited photo opportunities!
How Sweet It Will Be
It’s true that you may be feeling a little blue when the skies are gray and gloomy, but the quickest way to a smile is through chocolate, and it is impossible to be sad when you visit the Chocolate Kingdom! Located at 9901 Hawaiian Court, this factory dedicated to the sweetest treat of all may not change your life, but it will definitely sweeten your disposition as you explore the museum, take the factory tour, and create your own custom chocolate bar. The rain may be soaking the grounds, the skies may be dark and gloomy, but you will be in your happy place surrounded by the most wonderful of aromas, the smell of chocolate in all its many forms!
A Fiery Example of History
This next activity is only available on Fridays and Saturdays, but families with little boys and girls will want to add a visit to the Orlando Fire Museum to their itinerary, even if the sun is shining brightly. Located at 814 E Rollins Street inside a brick firehouse built in the 1920s, the exhibits found here cover decades of firefighting history and include a variety of uniforms, equipment, historic fire trucks, and a fascinating glimpse into the bedrooms that are built into every station.
No, we are not suggesting you head out in the rain for a game of golf; we are inviting you to enjoy 18 holes of colorful fun at the Putting Edge indoor miniature golf course! Black lights and neon colors make mini golf fun as you move from themed hole to themed hole, exploring the ocean, the jungles, and the mysteries of outer space with your kids and spouse. Located at 5250 International Drive and offering a cool respite from the dreary weather outside, spending a couple of hours here is fun on rainy and sunny days!
Photos with the Stars
Another popular activity in Orlando is Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, located at 8387 International Drive, where you can mingle with big-time celebrities that include Shrek, Taylor Swift, and our personal favorite, Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Take your turn in the hot seat as you are “interviewed” by Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show, pose at the big desk in the Oval Office, or help Superman hold up a helicopter, saving everyone who is inside! The options are limitless at Madame Tussauds, and the fun never ends!
At Home with Magnolia Villas
Of course, there is no law that says you have to leave the premises of your Magnolia Villas vacation escape! Staying in for the day has never been so fun as you sleep late, play games, and maybe, take a swim in the rain because you know you can’t get any more wet. Reserve your stay with us today!
