Leaving on December 29th, and heading to the Orlando area for 10 days. Traveling with kids, 5 year old and 10 month old. Any "must do" type things within 2 hours of Orlando, OTHER than Disney parks?
We are going to spend a few days at the park, but need other neat things to do because that park drives me nuts going to it every day.
Also, will be traveling from Cincinnati, so any suggestions along the way would be great too. Valdosta area? Northern Florida? Atlanta?
Never been to the south in winter, so this is a bit new for me..
Thanks in advance!!

Canaveral/Space center, Everglades maybe an airboat ride. Seaworld,
These 3 would top my list.

Good suggestions.
BUT....the Everglades is a long way away and you don't have to go that far to find an airboat ride.

This kind of a trip probably will be VERY stressful on a 10 month old. Hope you have taken that into consideration.

Hit the springs to see Manatees. Blue Springs or drive over to Crystal River area.
When it’s cooler they bunch up in the springs.

Canaveral Seashore if it opens up after the unnecessary shutdown. Lots of birds in the winter.

I detest it but everyone should do International Drive once.

I like to use Roadside America when traveling. Maybe you can find something interesting along your route.
