Gatorland is an attraction in south Orlando featuring thousands of alligators and crocodiles. They have reptile shows, a petting zoo, train rides and more. If you are a Florida resident, price for a day’s admission is only $9.99 through June 30. Normal price is $21.99 ($13.99 ages 3-12), so this is a great bargain. It doesn’t matter what your age, if you are a Florida resident, you get this special price. Guests can pay an additional fee for the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line experience.

If you are a Florida resident, and you own a non-Florida (non-native) pet, you can bring it to Gatorland this Saturday, May 19 and the Florida Wildlife Commission will accept the pet with no questions asked or fines. Only exotic reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds, invertebrates and mammals will be accepted. Domestic pets, including dogs, cats, ferrets, etc. will not be accepted.

It is Gatorland’s hope that you will not release a non-native animal into the wild. Florida is already home to more than 400 non-native species. This amnesty day is free and open to the public. Go to the attraction’s south parking lot entrance at 14501 S. Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. this Saturday. While you’re there, you might as well enjoy the Florida resident deal!
