Discover old Florida and experience the easiest way to see 400+ alligators in Central Florida in our 15-acre drive-through alligator park. Stay in the comfort of your car, rain or shine, with no walking. You'll see everything from baby gators to massive monsters in our no-kill park.

After the drive-thru, you can get out and see the baby gators, feed some hungry youth gators, and hold a gator. You are free to take as many pictures as you like with your devices. Be sure to take a selfie with Big Al our 13 foot, taxidermied gator. Then head out and enjoy our petting zoo full of lots of farm animals. We've also recently added a new Bunny Barn with plenty of baby bunnies to hold.

We are located one mile west of I-75 on State Road 44, near Wildwood and only 7 miles from The Villages.

Open 10:00 am to 4:00 pm ET Monday through Saturday. Closed on Sunday (Hours of operation may vary).

"Pricey"
August 2018
This was our 2nd time at Gator World. The first time I got tickets off Groupon and it was just myself and spouse. It was very affordable and we liked it. We ended up taking our daughter because of the animals to pet. She enjoyed the rabbits and goats more than anything, which was a bit pricey for $22. For the amount of things they have and it being in the middle of nowhere I would reduce ticket prices.

There was 5 in our group. From start to finish we was there only 30 min. And only 10 of that was interacting with animals. Cost way to much for very little entertainment.

We spent a lovely time at GatorWorld in Wildwood...Never saw so many alligators. Kids had fun feeding alligators, goats, chickens,goats and pigs. Also they loved sitting in the rabbit house holding all the rabbits. The staff was friendly and informative. A very successful time.

Very cool experience for the whole family. We got to see/feed gators, hold a baby one, hold bunnies and hang out with some friendly goats and chickens. Carlos was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and spent a lot of time with our group answering our questions and making sure we all got to spend enough time with the animals. A really fun time!

First off, this is for kids and really only kids. Not much to do there. Also, a bit overpriced for what you get.

You drive through cages of lots of gators from small to 11.9’. Then you get to hold on feed the gators small food on a hook, there are also farm animals to pet. Now instead of going to higher priced Gator Land with extra fees, we opted to see Gator Land and then to see the wild gators on Wild Bills airboat ride. Much better experience for the money.
