Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Florida Kids and Family Expo?
The Florida Kids and Family Expo was started in 2014 to help families find products, services, schools, businesses and organizations to help their family thrive in Central Florida. This event is to provide a heavy dose of information with a side of family fun!
What can we expect at the Florida Kids and Family Expo?
Information and fun! This event was started by Central Florida moms who have lived and worked in our community for decades, but lacked the resources and time to find opportunities for their families. In an effort to help other families, they started MyCentralFloridaFamily.com and the Florida Kids and Family Expo.
At this event, you will find 150+ exhibits from businesses, organizations and schools that want to connect with you to inform you of just what's possible. There will be interactive opportunities for the kids to have fun from arts and crafts, animal interactions, character meet and greets and so much more. There will be bounce houses and attractions (some included with entry) available for added fun to the event, but as many moms and dads have told us...there's so much to do, you can skip the bounce houses and attractions and have an amazing time! You will find stages full of performances for the family to enjoy from dueling Medieval Times knights to gators and live animals, magicians, vocalists and so much more. Your kiddos will be able to get involved in on site sports, soap box cars and more. We try to bring the fun no matter your age!
With over 150,000 square feet of space, the Florida Kids and Family Expo is not crowded, completely air conditioned and full of unique family memories for fun for all ages!
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
While we all hate to pay for parking, the convention center has discounted parking to $10 for our families. With an event of this size, paid parking is inevitable.
How much are tickets to get in?
We've lowered ticket prices (thanks to help from the OCCC) to $5 per ticket. And, each paid ticket will receive 2 complimentary tickets for the attractions and bounce houses. These tickets can be combined within your group. For less than the price of going to the movies, you can enjoy a full day of fun!
What's included with our entry fee?
This year? Everything! We're instructing all exhibitors that interactive experiences must be included and they will not be permitted to charge additional fees. Your kiddos will be able to choose which bounce houses/attractions they would like to try as each paid ticket will receive 2 complimentary tickets to enjoy them. Bouce houses are 1 ticket each and attractions are 2 tickets each. Your family's tickets can be combined. If you want your kiddos to have unlimited access to the bounce houses and attractions all day, there will be unlimited access wristbands available for $10 each.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
You can bring anything your family may need. Snacks, food and drinks are permitted based on needs for the family. You can bring strollers...we encourage them for all the walking the kiddos will have to do. No weapons please.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please contact us at Brandi@MyCentralFloridaFamily.com. Communications will be limited from August 17-20th, so please be sure to contact us in advance of the event.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Unfortunately no. Each registered attendee has signed an electronic waiver and that waiver is ONLY good for the names associated with each ticket.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
We need either your printed ticket or your electronic ticket on your phone. You will have to be scanned to enter. If you're participating in our Chick-fil-A offer on Saturday, August 19th, you will need a printed ticket!
What is the refund policy?
All tickets are non-refundable. All sales are final.
