Gator Week snaps back to Wild Florida with Gator Themed Activities, Demos and Free Admission

The wildly popular Wild Florida is celebrating the American alligator during the return of Gator Week, happening now at the Central Florida attraction.


Gator Week at Wild Florida

Wild Florida located in Kenansville, Osceola County is once again hosting its popular Gator Week now through until Saturday, June 1, 2024.


It's no secret that Wild Florida know a thing or two about alligators, and to share this knowledge they are offering everyone FREE admission to their Gator Park when you make a small cash donation during Gator Week toward the Wild Florida Cares Scholarship Fund!


These donations help Osceola County graduating high school seniors pay for college while you get to experience one-of-a-kind gator-themed events with your family. So grab your Crocs and start practicing your gator call because Gator Week is happening now!



To many, alligators are simply fierce carnivores on the hunt, but that’s not actually the case. Like many misunderstood creatures, myths develop based on a lack of knowledge. Because of this, Wild Florida dedicate Gator Week to educating and debunking many common myths surrounding these reptiles, along with some of their reptile cousins, through live demonstrations and interactive experiences.


There will be plenty of fun photo-ops and guest appearances made by some popular inhabitants of the Gator Park.
