Spend the day on a farm or get VIP treatment at the theme parks.
Farm attractions are a great alternative to enjoying the Florida sunshine without the crowds. Nothing beats the memorable opportunity to cuddle with a soft lamb, feed a curious goat or ride on a brightgreen tractor for some hands-on barnyard agritainment. So, grab your denim overalls and head to the grasslands to dig up good ol’ family fun. Just 20 minutes from Walt Disney World, Green Meadows Farm yields an ideal country setting with massive oak trees and roaming livestock, including Elmer, an Asian water buffalo. Touch and learn about 300 animals, such as chickens, donkeys, ducks, geese, goats, pigs, rabbits, sheep and turkeys. Hop on a pony, a train or a tractor-drawn hayride. Hey, you can even milk a cow ... check that off your bucket list! Save the date for Corn Fest Sept. 24-25, their Pumpkin Patch Oct. 1-Nov. 6, Trail of Jack-O-Lanterns and Ooky-Spooky Haunted House weekends in October and Halloween Fun Days Oct. 29-30. 1368 S.
