The Crayola Experience
What better place to take your toddlers on a rainy day than The Crayola Experience at The Florida Mall in Orlando? Kids under two get in free, and general admission is $24 for the entire day, so you can step out for a lunch break or shopping break right in the mall. If you know your tots will want to come again, an annual pass is only $31 and will pay for itself after just two visits. At the Crayola Experience kids can do things like:
- Melt crayons into fun shapes
- Watch crayons being made live
- Design fashions with crayons and see them realized in a runway show
