We decided to visit on a whim and were surprised at how entertaining the experience was. Plan on spending many hours there and try to catch the Gator wrestling. We were there from noon to 4:00, and probably could have spent two more hours if we didn't have a dinner reservation. They say it's free admission to all veterans, not... More

We loved our trip to Gatorland, the staff were truly friendly and eager to inform. We observed the feeding habits of the crocodiles and the alligators and the differences between the two, also the many and varied types of birds and other creatures, this is an amazing place, in our opinion more enjoyable than the Disney parks nearby. A special... More

This place is AWESOME! Thanks to Michael Brown, we got an up close and personal tour of Gatorland! He was the best! The customer service we received at Gatorland was top notch! We can't thank you guys enough! We got to feed soo many gators, including an albino gator named Pearl. The park was clean and fun. Gators lurked around... More

Gatorland was a lot of fun and we'll go back. It reminded me of my childhood when we'd all pack into the '59 Station Wagon and head to the camp ground near the beach. There were lots of gator shows and as a kid it was so cool to see. Gatorland seems to have survived into the 21st century and... More

We have been going to Gatorland for many years now and still find it very enjoyable. Visit good for half a day's entertainment, great shows, animal interaction, very knowledgeable staff and obviously plenty of gators. Food like most parks in Orlando isn't great but passable if hunger really takes a grip. Depending on the length of your stay I would... More

We purchased our tickets for Gatorland from a Park Ticket vendor at the Golden Corral on 192. We only save about $5 off gate price so not huge savings. When approaching the park and when we first went in, it looked like it was really small and I thought we would only be there for about an hour. However the... More

We were there 2 years ago and they have made many new improvements. A splash park for the kids and some new animal enclosures. The shows are really fun and interesting the bird room was one of my favorites. If you get a chance it's $10 to feed the alligators and it's is a really cool experience you are 3... More

Living in Florida for almost 2 yrs now we've seen our share of alligators but since we were visiting friends in Orlando the night before, decided to make a detour to check the place out and til January 31st, Florida residents get 50% off their ticket entry . Was really cool. Enjoyed it very much. The people working there are... More

Nothing against Disney, but places like Gatorland are the real Florida experience. Yeah, the show commentaries are campy and it might not have all of Disney's bells & whistles, but I enjoyed it more than the overblown theme parks. Gatorland does have much more than I expected: a small water park area for kids, playground, abundant animal life including pink... More

My husband and I had a wonderful day at Gatorland. There were lots of gators of all sizes, but we especially enjoy the birds. The big birds all over the park were watching any time anyone had food. They were very entertaining. And the enclosure with the parakeets was so much fun. We bought the little birdseed sticks and the... More
