If you’re looking to celebrate dad with a day spent in the heart of Orlando that is ‘almost’ as cool as he is, look no further! Celebrate Father’s Day with dad in Orlando’s Most Dynamic Neighborhood this year with these dad-approved ways to celebrate for a day that will have him talking for years to come.

A day on the greens!

Does your dad love golf? Enjoy a day of friendly competition and bonding with dad over a game of golf.
For the avid golfers, treat dad to a peaceful day on the greens at Rosen Shingle Creek’s Arnold Palmer 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course.
Looking to enjoy some game time that the whole family can get in on? Head to one of the many miniature adventure golf courses along International Drive. Head to Pirates Cove Adventure Golf to inspire your inner pirate, and get yarr game on as you putt your way over bridges and under cascading waterfalls in an atmosphere of enchanting pirate lore. And if you’re really looking for a challenge, head to Congo River Golf to try your swing at their 18-hole challenging course where you’ll have to explore caves and dodge waterfalls to win prizes as you play! Be sure to stop and feed the 75 live alligators too for an exciting end to your game!

Does dad have a need for speed?

Gift your dad a trip to the perfect spot to satisfy his need for speed with an afternoon spent go-karting
Andretti Indoor Karting offers high-speed karting on an indoor track full of exciting twists and turns, plus various other games like bowling, laser tag, a full arcade, and a 7-Dimension ride.
For the dad who dreams of being a race car driver, be sure to plan a stop at K1 Speed to race (and hopefully claim victory) on their professionally designed go-kart track. We’re sure dad will enjoy the various other games at this location as he stands in awe at the authentic racing memorabilia on display.
And for the dads who just want to have a good time, head to Fun Spot America to race the day away on their multi-level, outdoor go-kart tracks! Plus, purchase a single day ticket to let dad inspire his inner child with thrill rides, arcade games, roller coasters and more!

Dezerland Park

Dezerland Park Orlando is a one-stop-shop for a memorable Father’s Day that dad will actually enjoy!
Make a pit stop at Bass Pro Shops to let dad pick something out for himself, and then head to Orlando’s Largest Museum of any kind that also happens to be home to the most engaging auto/vehicle collection in the world: Auto Experience Museum. We’re sure he’ll enjoy browsing the many rare and exotic vehicles here.
If there’s a new movie out that your dad’s been dying to see, hit the movie theater here to see it on the big screen with a bucket of popcorn!
Then finish the day with an axe-citing experience at Axecelsior Axe Throwing! Here you’ll find the only projection targets in all of Orlando, with moving targets, a variety of games, and an end-grain! Now with a Kid Zone, even the little ones in your group will have a blast.
Father’s Day spent at Dezerland Park is sure to be a bullseye!
All of this Father’s Day fun is sure to have dad working up an appetite.
Treat dad to a delicious dining experience at one of the many restaurants along International Drive that have put together specials that are sure to satisfy!
