Fun things to do around Orlando on Labor Day Weekend


Celebrate Labor Day Weekend with four days of family-friendly fun and music at Promenade at Sunset Walk Orlando! From Friday, Sept. 2 through Monday, Sept. 5, guests will enjoy over 10 live musical acts and DJ’s, both at Promenade Plaza and in the Euphoria Fish House Lounge at the Margaritaville Resort Orlando Hotel. Plus, attendees can check out the over 20 dining, retail and entertainment venues that have made Promenade at Sunset Walk a must-visit destination. Admission to the event and parking are both FREE.

Florida residents receive half-off single day admissions and one free child admission (ages 3 to 12) with each paying adult, Sept. 1 through Sept. 30, 2022.  Tickets must be purchased at Gatorland admissions. Proof of Florida Residency for adults is required.  Florida Resident Adults pay just $16.50 rather than $32.99 plus tax and Seniors 60+ pay $15.99 rather than $31.98 plus tax.  That’s right, 50% off regular admission for Florida Resident Adults and Seniors, PLUS one child age 3-12 years FREE per adult or senior.  That’s the BEST DEAL IN TOWN!!

Gatorland is a 110-acre theme park combining Old Florida charm with exciting experiences, exhibits, and entertainment.  Orlando Weekly’s Best of Orlando® 2021 Readers’ Poll named Gatorland the Best Attraction That’s Not A Theme Park and Best Zip Line or Ropes Course for Gatorland’s Screamin’ Gator Zip Line. For more Gatorland info, visit
