A trip to Orlando, Florida usually means theme parks. While staying right on Disney or Universal Studios property is certainly convenient, it’s also pretty expensive when compared to hotels and resorts off the property. The great thing about Orlando is that there are some really nice resorts just a short distance from the major theme parks, and they’re usually far more cost-effective. Here’s a look at some of the top recommendations for your next Orlando Family Trip.
Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek
The Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek is a great option for families that will be spending a good portion of their vacation at the Walt Disney World parks. The resort is only a ten-minute drive from Disney, and they offer complimentary shuttle service to all of the parks. What’s more, you can see the nightly Epcot fireworks from your hotel room! What really makes this an excellent option for families is the water park, with multiple pools, a lazy river, and waterslides. You’ll also find several restaurants, a golf course and a spa on site.
Floridays Resort Orlando
Another great choice for families, the Floridays Resort Orlando offers complimentary shuttle service to Disney, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld Orlando. The rooms are perfect for families, too, with spacious kitchens. There’s a giant swimming pool on the property with a man-made beach, and the kids can have their own section.
WorldQuest Orlando Resort
If your family is on the large size, the WorldQuest Orlando Resort offers some really great deals on both two and three bedroom villas that come with dining rooms, kitchens, and spacious living rooms. There’s a pool on property and a continental breakfast, not to mention free transportation to Disney World.
JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes
The JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes does everything BIG–from its 1,000 rooms to the 24,000-square-foot swimming pool! You’ll also find a ton of restaurants on the property, golf packages and complimentary transportation to Universal Resort.
Embassy Suites Orlando–Lake Buena Vista Resort
This all-suite resort offers complimentary transportation to Epcot, but the resort itself has plenty of amenities to keep you and the kids happy if you want to take a break from the parks. You get free Wi-Fi and cooked-to-order breakfast, a great pool, and a kid’s splash pad.
