Whether you’re a new dad, an older dad or planning something for the favorite dad in your life, you’ll want to know what’s going on in Orlando for Father’s Day. We’ve got the scoop!

Head to Universal Orlando Resort to see The Blue Man Group. They’re a scream for the whole family and totally unique. Comedy and tech blends perfectly with percussion, mime and live music.

Does Dad like star-gazing? Then he’ll love coming face to face with a real life astronaut at Kennedy Space Center. Fly With An Astronaut takes you on a half day guided tour of Kennedy Space Center with an experienced space explorer. The half day program will showcase the iconic sites of Kennedy Space Center by motor coach. Tour Space Shuttle Atlantis and blast off on the Shuttle Launch Experience. The tour includes lunch served in the LC-39 Observation Gantry in the heart of historic Launch Complex 39. The NASA astronaut visiting on June 17th and 18th 2017 is Jon McBride. Jon McBride served as the pilot of STS-41G aboard space shuttle Challenger and is a former naval aviator who has logged more than 8,800 total flight hours and 4,700 hours in jets.

There’s still plenty to do in Orlando on Father’s Day. If Dad’s a bit of an adventurer, he’ll love Orlando Tree Trek. Dad can climb free on Father’s Day with the purchase of two regular tickets. This exciting aerial adventure includes six different color coded courses, 97 challenging elements and two giant 425′ zip lines. Lots of fun for the whole family. There are kids tickets for ages 7 – 11, junior tickets for 9+ and adults tickets for 12+.

Finally, you can also check out the SAK Comedy Lab. It’s an annual tradition to give Dad a free show at SAK Comedy Lab on Father’s Day. An ensemble of improv actors have been entertaining audiences in Orlando since 1991. It’s usually a sell out show, so do get tickets in advance.
