So, you’ve grown out of Disney huh? And you’re looking for indoor activities to do in Orlando. Preferably places without screaming kids, Mickey Mouse ears or giant-sized Olafs.
In that case, you should be quivering with excitement because we have 12 super-fun activities for an adult such as yourself!
And the best part?
They are all indoor so you can escape the ridiculously hot Florida sun.
All right, let’s begin!
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO. Which means if you click on certain links, I may receive a small commission at no additional charge to you.
1. ICEBAR Orlando
With lights, music and gorgeous ice sculptures, it’s a wintry paradise. They even have an icy throne especially for you (why should Elsa have all the fun?).
When it gets too cold, you can try their signature cocktails in the Fire Lounge (which by the way has a great party scene). Plus, the food here is incredible! Making it one of the best indoor activities in Orlando.
While you can bring your own warm clothing, they also provide you with parkas and gloves. You need to pay $10 extra if you want a faux fur coat though.
- Price: $21 (check website for offers, hours, and discounts)
- Address: 8967 International Dr. Orlando, FL 32819, United States
- Restrictions: Ages 8+: 5:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M.; 21+: After 9:00 P.M.
2. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition on International Drive
This RMS Titanic is the most famous ship of all time. Even if you simply liked the movie Titanic and knew nothing of the history of it, the Titanic exhibit in Orlando will take your breath away.
There are real pieces from the sunken ship, dramatic reenactments and a complete recreation of the ship’s Grand Staircase.
It also boasts of the second-largest piece of the RMS Titanic ever recovered– a three-ton piece of hull.
It’s a truly immersive and educational experience (with loads of discounts available online).
- Price: $21.95 (adults); $15.75 (children)
- Address: 7324 International Dr. Orlando, FL 32819, United States
3. The Escape Game Orlando
This next activity is teetering on the edge of your budget.
But if you are going in with great company, it could be a very cherished memory– a bonding experience I am told. Or you can start the game with a bunch of strangers and end it with friends.
It is the usual escape room game: your entire group is locked in a room for 60 minutes during which you can decode a puzzle and escape from the room.
What is unique about The Escape Game Orlando is that they have so many different experiences/rooms you can choose from– prison breaks, spaceship repair or museum heists. Every room is an adventure!
Making it one of the top indoor activities in Orlando.
- Price: $37.99 + tax
- Address: 8145 International Dr. #511, Orlando, FL 32819, United States

4. Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Orlando
You want to go someplace really fascinating? Ripley’s basically invented the word. Upon entering the Odditorium, you will immediately see at least 20 things you have never even thought of.
Jaw-dropping pieces of art, curious artifacts (yes, I’m talking about the shrunken heads) and a weird vortex-tunnel– all rolled into a super-fun interactive experience. Ripley’s is definitely not to be missed. Making it one of the unique indoor activities in Orlando.
Oh, and they have free parking for visitors. It just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?
- Price: $26.99 for adults and $16.99 for children
- Address:8201 International Dr. Orlando, FL 32819, United States
Honorable Mention: Player 1 Video Game Bar is perfect for adults who want to relive their teen years playing their favorite arcade games for one low price while enjoying a delicious adult cocktail!
5. Mangos Tropical Café Orlando
If you’re thinking of partying it up with style in Orlando, I cannot think of a better place than Mangos.
This is what you can expect from the world-class dinner and show at Mangos: a three-course dinner, dances ranging from Brazilian Samba to a Michael Jackson act and a trip down the musical memory lane.
You can also head down to the nightclub and dance to the beats yourself! Or chill in the Vodou Room with a bottle of wine and friends.
Either way, it will be a night to remember.
- Price: Starting at $39 for the Dinner and Show ticket; the bar has a cover charge
- Address:8126 International Dr. Orlando, FL 32819, United States

6. Orlando Improv Comedy Club
Comedy is everyone’s cup of tea, I’m told. If you’re looking for a heady evening of scandalous jokes, surprising events and overall hilarity, you could not choose a better place than the Orlando Improv Comedy Club.
They have a long line of the best comedians lined up. Many of the world’s best comedians have graced the stage at the Improv. I’m talking about Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Bruce Bruce, Robin Williams, Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld and so much more!
- Price: Starts at $20 (price change depending on the comedian)
- Address: 9101 International Dr. Suite 2310, Orlando, FL 32819, United States
7. World of Chocolate Museum
If it has the word chocolate in it, I’m sold!
The World of Chocolate Museum has 25 sculptures carved out of solid blocks of chocolate, a rainforest experience that explains where chocolate comes from and a sampling of the world’s best chocolates.
And then when you get hungry (which you will eventually I promise), you can run along to their cafe. They give you hot chocolate in a mug there.
So? Are you sold yet?
- Price: $16.95 per person
- Address: 11701 International Dr. suite 400, Orlando, FL 32821, United States
8. Dr Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
A non-profit organization devoted to art may not seem like the best place to spend a fun evening.
But when you see what they have lined up for you, you may change your mind.
If you’re feeling a little extravagant (or you have just watched Bridgerton and want a reason to dress up) you need to visit the Dr Phillips Center.
You can watch a ballet, a Broadway show or even a concert– feeling like a real lady/gentleman the entire time.
- Price: Depends on the event
- Address: 445 S. Magnolia Avenue Orlando, FL 32801, United States
9. Orlando Magic Game (Amway Center)
I know, I know. We said no magic. But if you skip the name, there’s hardly anything magical about the Orlando Magic Game. Unless you really really really like basketball.
I should explain: Orlando Magic is the name of Orlando’s franchise in the NBA. Yes Hipsters, that’s an NBA game you can go to in Orlando.
Make sure to pick up some jerseys for the home team!
- Price: $80 (average prices)
- Address: 400 W Church St Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32801
10. Jellyrolls Dueling Pianos on the Boardwalk at Disney
I know this is a Disney-free list but this barely qualifies as Disney.
I mean it’s a bar for starters. And they (obviously) serve alcohol (how else would they get people to sing along?).
You sit in a rambunctious crowd inside the bar and try to stump the piano maestros on stage by coming up with obscure songs. Sounds like fun? Try doing it when you’re slightly tipsy.
These maestros have been trained to play virtually any song. And there are very few times when they were stumped.
So, are you up to the challenge?
- Price: $15 entry fee
- Address: 2101 Epcot Resorts Blvd, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830, United States
11. The Wine Room Winter Park
Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a room full of the most delicious and potent wines on this side of the coast.
When you are feeling exceptionally classy and want to have an ‘adult’ evening, what better thing to do than a wine tasting? Am I right?
But, The Wine Room is more than just a wine-tasting place. Someone on TripAdvisor actually called it the adult version of Dave and Busters. They were referring to how you can put money on your card and sample wine.
But I’d like to think they also meant that they had loads of fun there.
Don’t forget to try some of their sandwiches and desserts before you start drinking! Making it one of the best indoor activities in Orlando.
- Price: depends on what you buy
- Address: 270 S Park Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789, United States

That was a LOT of activities we just covered. I don’t blame you if you can’t pick which one to do first. I certainly can’t.
Whether you decide to take a historical tour of the Titanic, visit the wine lounge or party it up in Mangos, I’m sure you will have tons of fun.
Hopefully, now you know that there’s plenty of things to do in Orlando apart from Disney-ing.
And who knows, at the end of it all, you may pay a visit to Walt Disney’s world after all.
Until next time, Happy Park Hopping Hipsters!
