The Parks

Orlando’s many theme parks put on a show for nearly every holiday and season. Epcot hosts the International Festival of the Holidays as well as the International Food & Wine Festival, you can get spooky with Universal Studios Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights or make a spooky splash at the SeaWorld Halloween Spectacular. Ring in the Christmas season at the Magic Kingdom, and more. Each park has some variation of a fall celebration that guests of all ages won’t want to miss. See characters dressed in spooky or festive costumes and even some fall-themed treats from the park restaurants.

Chocolate Kingdom Factory Tour

Chocolate lovers will want to add this sweet stop to the top of their must-see list on their Orlando vacation this fall. Chocolate Kingdom, the Factory Adventure Tour, is an interactive tour that takes you from the cocoa bean all the way to the creamy, delicious chocolate treats you love to indulge in. Your Personal Chocolate Tour Guide teams up with a “handsome prince” and the prince’s dragon sidekick to take you through a Cacao Tree Greenhouse, a one-of-a-kind Chocolate Museum, the Mystical River of Chocolate, and the Micro Batch Bean-to-the-Bar Factory that utilizes old-world machinery in the creation of delicious desserts. The 45-minute tour includes samples along the way, and for an additional fee, you can customize your own chocolate bar!

Playfest

The festival for theater lovers features new plays in a raw, unproduced format. The festival invites the audience to become part of the creative process by giving real-time feedback to the actors and production crew. The event takes place November 4-6 at Lowndes Shakespeare Center, 812 E. Rollins Street in Orlando. Ticket prices range from $13-$45 and are available at theatresouthplayhouse.org.

Fall At Southern Hill Farms

Now through November 13, 2022, you can celebrate fall on the farm. Southern Hill Farms celebrates the season every year with a festival full of seasonal activities for guests of all ages. Pick sunflowers and zinnias, satisfy your cravings with apple cider donuts and hot apple cider, or comb the pumpkin patch for the best pumpkin to add to your fall décor. There are also fall photo ops, s’mores kits, bounce houses, and much more. Festival hours are Thursdays-Sundays 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Tickets are available here.

Head Outside

Resorts, hotels, and vacation rentals alike all have quick access to outdoor spaces like pools, hot tubs, playgrounds, and more. If you’re the adventurous sort, grab some water and your sun gear and hit the local trails for a hike, or rent a bike and explore the area around you. These activities are even more fun in the fall when scorching summer temperatures have begun to cool down and you can enjoy the outdoors as long as you like.
