Top Five Bachelorette Party Ideas & Activities in Orlando
We’ve thought up the what, where and how; you just choose the who and when!
1. A Night on the Town
What: Drinks, Laughs, City Views and Your Best Dance Moves
Where: Downtown Orlando
How: Start the night off as tame or as rowdy as you want! Downtown has something for every Orlando bachelorette party — from the festive collection of restaurants, bars and nightclubs at Wall Street Plaza and the now-open Lion’s Pride pub, to the SAK Comedy Lab, a specialty cigar store, popular escape room experience, and live music venues. Home of the Orlando Magic, the state-of-the-art Amway Center, even features a sky-top lounge with frequent special events.
2. An Epic Evening
What: Dining, Cocktails, Karaoke and Memorable Live Entertainment
Where: Universal CityWalk™ Orlando
How: Make the cinematic atmosphere of Universal’s CityWalk™ your backdrop for a night to remember. This open-air entertainment district boasts tons of restaurants specializing in wild beverages, including Jimmy Buffett’s® Margaritaville®; the New Orleans daiquiri favorite, Fat Tuesday®; and the brand-new Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen™. Afterward, check out a unique performance by Blue Man Group, or get your karaoke on at CityWalk’s Rising Star™! For the more traditional bachelorette party nightclub experience, the vintage-tropical Red Coconut Club™ and poppy atmosphere of The Groove™ won’t disappoint.
3. A Touch of Magic
What: Sweet Treats, Shops, Friendly Competition and Disney Everything
Where: Disney Springs™ Area
How: If she’s a Disney fanatic, celebrate at Disney Springs™. Dine at one of dozens of themed eateries and visit the world-famous Ghirardelli® Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop or a Disney-themed candy store for dessert. Catch a show at House of Blues® Music Hall; challenge each other at Splitsville Luxury Lanes™; pose at various character photo ops; or release your inner child at DisneyQuest® Indoor Interactive Theme Park. Of course, she’ll want to window shop at World of Disney®, the world’s largest Disney merchandise store, too!
4. A Tourist’s Perspective
What: Sugary Drinks, Sharable Plates, Wild Performances and Dance Clubs
Where: International Drive
How: Whether you live just a few minutes or several hours away, go all out along Orlando’s main tourism corridor for your bachelorette party. The I-Drive area features plenty of over-the-top spots, like The Sugar Factory, Señor Frog’s, B.B. King’s Blues Club and ICEBAR Orlando. Share small plates from a scratch kitchen at Café Tu Tu Tango, and experience DRIP, an immersive theatrical performance, art gallery, bar and rock concert all in one. Soar high on the Orlando Eye ferris wheel, or dare someone to go on the slingshot! (Who says thrills are only for bachelor parties?) Popular clubs include Howl at the Moon piano bar, Blue Martini Lounge and Mango’s Tropical Cafe.
5. A Weekend Getaway
What: Luxury Accommodations, a Backyard Pool, Spa Services, In-Home Chef and More
Where: Encore Resort at Reunion
How: A few days away from the stress of the wedding may be exactly what she needs! Go ahead and reserve a luxury vacation resort and all-inclusive accommodations with four to 13 bedroom availability at Encore Resort at Reunion. Here, you’ll enjoy complimentary airport shuttle pickup, indulge in spa treatments that come right to your door, and reserve a professional chef to prepare a gourmet meal for everyone — because she’s worth it! Maximize your time in the sun tanning beside a private backyard pool, or visit the Aqua Club for drink specials and weekly activities, like corn hole and beach volleyball.
The best part? You can choose this option and one of our other Orlando bachelorette party ideas! After a long day (or night) out, there’s nothing like knowing the next 24 hours will be filled with the relaxation and pampering of an Encore Resort stay.
