Special Needs

If you’re looking for special needs events or information, check this category. There are never a lot of these special events in Central Florida, but the ones that we do have are always well done.

Make Em Smile is one of our favorite special needs events in Central Florida and it’s a great way to get out at Lake Eola and connect with businesses that help special needs families and families in general.

This category includes sensory free events like those held at Whole Foods or Chuck E Cheese. We love these events as they allow all kids to enjoy what Central Florida has to offer.
