The Enzian Theater, the city’s popular independent cinema, hosts free movie screenings once a month in Winter Park’s charming Central Park. In the past, screening selections have included Willow, Captain America: The First Avenger and Men in Black. Movies begin at sunset and attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks and beverages, along with blankets or chairs to sit on. As always, check the weather before plopping down for the feature presentation because Florida’s evening rains can be unpredictable.
There’s more to do in Orlando besides spin around in larger-than-life tea cups and hang out in Harry Potter's fictional world. While those things are fun – and don't get us wrong, we LOVE the Orlando theme parks – there’s actually a secret world of free activities in the city, if you know where to look.
In fact, there's actually so many many free things to do in Orlando that you could spend a few days in the city and only spend a little money on food and maybe a ride-share. So why not escape the heat at a perfectly temperate river oasis? Or hang out in one of the city’s best museums? All for free. And if you absolutely must go to Walt Disney World or Universal Orlando Resort, there are things to do there that won’t break the bank too.
Enjoy all that Orlando has to offer without breaking the bank by following our guide of free things to do in Orlando. You can use the extra dough you saved to treat yourself to dinner at one of Orlando’s best restaurants.
