Family Bonding Activities To Enjoy While In Orlando

2/24/2017

We’re proud that VacationPoolHomes.com has become one of America’s most trusted sources for Florida villa rentals in the Disney corridor. We got into this business because we absolutely love to see families having fun and making memories together.

During the busy hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s very easy to let family bonding activities fall by the wayside. Dad is busy trying to top last quarter’s sales. Mom is busy trying to sell that dream real estate listing. The kids are only in middle school but already thinking about college scholarships. With all of these responsibilities going on, it can be easy for families to forget about having fun! It’s when laughing or experiencing something new together that families actually strengthen their relationships. And what better place to do it than in a Florida villa rental? Here are some ideas:

Traveling Together Is The Ultimate Family Bonding Activity!

Make Dinner Together – According to family science researchers, having a good old fashioned dinner together may be one of the most instrumental things you can do to strengthen relationships between children and parents.

“In 2008, researchers at Brigham Young University conducted a study of IBM workers and found that sitting down to a family meal helped working moms reduce the tension and strain from long hours at the office,” explains CNN.

Eating together can also be healthier for every member of your family, helping your kids to establish smart eating habits that will benefit them throughout life. “A 2000 survey found that the 9- to 14-year-olds who ate dinner with their families most frequently ate more fruits and vegetables and less soda and fried foods. Their diets also had higher amounts of many key nutrients, like calcium, iron, and fiber,” continues CNN.

Making dinner together on vacation is easy when you stay in one of our Florida villa rentals, all of which have a full, modern kitchen in which to cook up a delicious meal!

Have Storytime – Reading has been shown to have multiple benefits for mental health and overall academic achievement. Reading together is also a wonderful way to bond with your kids, getting them away from the phone and tablet screens we all start at too often, and into the imaginative world of a real book. The luxurious living room spaces included in each of our Florida villa rentals provide the perfect place to curl up with a good book and the people you love the most!

Enjoy A Movie Marathon – When you’re on vacation, you make the rules. Want to stay in bed until 10 am? Do it. Want to eat breakfast for dinner? Do it. Want to ignore the bright sunshine and stay inside your Florida villa rental watching movies all day? You should definitely do it. Each one of our stunning vacation rentals offers a flat screen television and DVD player. Build a fort with your kids on the couch and take votes for which movies they want to watch. Then view them back to back to back!

Do Something Scary Together – We don’t mean creeping around in back alleys or eating sketchy seafood. We mean something that gets your collective adrenaline pumping! Of course, nearby Disney World offers lots of opportunities for facing your fears together as a family. You could ride the Astro Orbiter, Snow White’s Scary Adventures, The Primeval Whirl, or experience the ExtraTERROResterial Alien Encounter! Screaming your heads off together and living to tell the tale will give you memories that last a lifetime (especially if little Bobby can’t hang onto his lunch!).

Learn Together – If your family’s not really the thrill-seeking type, you could also create a bonding experience at one of the Orlando area’s calmer attractions. Visiting a museum, zoo, or botanical garden presents a great opportunity for seeing animals up close and personal, viewing priceless art, or even learning more about the scientific principles that govern our universe. Think about scheduling a visit to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, WonderWorks, Our Body the Universe Within, Titanic: The Experience, or even the famed Orlando Science Center. Just don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
