There's an eclectic mix of entertainment options this week at Orlando's theme parks and attractions.
+ The traveling exhibit "Adventures With Clifford the Big Red Dog" opens Saturday at Orlando Science Center. The displays teach Clifford's Big Ideas, which include notions such as playing fair, believing in yourself and helping others. The adventures include a "xylo-bone" to play and upsized items such as Clifford's dish. And the big red one himself lives up to his name at 9 feet. The exhibit is included in regular admission to Orlando Science Center. Saturday hours are 10 a.m.-noon for science-center members, then noon to 5 p.m. for general public. More details: OSC.org.

The activities are included in regular Legoland admission.
