The kids will most likely be talking about this one even after they've visited the other better known Central Florida tourist attractions.

For some unknown reason, most kids are crazy about dinosaurs.

Maybe they know something we don't about these not obviously lovable creatures from the shadows of prehistory.

Dinosaur Walk is not the only attraction.

There is also the Boneyard where you can uncover a life-size dinosaur skeleton.

Nearby the Boneyard is the Fossil Dig where your family can play at being an archaeologist and their newest exhibit, Skeleton Garden with life-size dinosaur skeleton replicas.

Other features include the Movie Cave where you can learn about dinosaurs in a subterranean setting, a museum, gift shop and children's playground.

When lunch time comes around the entire family will enjoy snacking with the dinosaurs in the Picnic Area.  

There is also a nice playground for the kids to enjoy.
