Resort living right next to all of the Orlando attractionsFlag review
This was our first visit to Orange Lake Resort in Kissimmee, FL. Nestled right behind Walt Disney World, we were able to see the fireworks at Disney at night fromour balcony. YOu could do Disney and the other attractions in Orlando but with thie resort there's no need to. There are seven pools on the resort all heated to 80 degrees.It has one of the longest lazy rivers, water sports and boat rentals on the resort. Beach volleyball anyone? Golf courses for the golf enthusiast, arcade rooms for the kids or kid at heart, plus several restaurants located throughout the resort. There is also a grocery store right outside of the resort gate so families can cook in their resort suites.
Tips for Families
They do require a room deposit of $250 upon arrival. That's for the room just in case you walk off with a flat screen tv or something but you can use that to charge meals to your room from any of the resort restaurants or you can use it in the several gift shops on the resort. I would rent a cabana next to the lazy river especiially if you have a large family and are going to stay at the river all day. Try some of the water activities, too. The resuarants are great and the staff is very friendly. I would plan on purchasing some grocieries if you are on a budget. Eating out for every meal can be a little pricey.
