There is no question that living in Florida, we have entertainment at our doorstep. With unbelievable resorts, dashing shows, and magical theme parks, we’ve got it all. Tourists travel thousands of miles for what we’ve got in our backyards. Here are four of the best stay-cation options in Orlando… and the best part!? You won’t have to travel far to find entertainment AND relaxation!
JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes
Treat yourself to the getaway of a lifetime at JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes. Just a shuttle away from all the Disney and Universal theme parks, you and your family can enjoy Florida without worrying about driving. As one of the best stay-cation options in Orlando, JW Marriott Orlando, sits on 500 acres, providing you many recreational activities like playing a round of golf on their 18-hole course, tennis, fishing, a swim at the pool and lazy river, or indulge yourself in a massage or facial at their three-story spa and more. There are countless activities to be a part of you will forget you live a couple of miles away from this hotel.
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Nothing says staycation like Disney! Just a monorail ride away to the most magical place on earth, Disney’s Magic Kingdom, and walking distance from Disney’s Boardwalk, this can end up being the best stay-cation, or vacation you’ve ever had. With their pools, motorized boat rentals, pirate adventure cruise, movies under the stars, fishing, arcade games, and campfire activities, you will never want to leave! Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa may be one of the best stay-cation options in Orlando.
Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate
If you want to relax and “live the life of leisure” this is the place for you! With a lazy river, a family pool with cabanas, you’ll want to stay in the outdoors for most of your trip. Here you can fish, dine in with your family, play golf and shop till your drop. The Omni Orlando Resort is one of the best stay-cation option in Orlando because it is located on the outskirts of Orlando you can feel like you are away from the madness of the busy city, but still be a short car ride away from entertainment.
Four Seasons Resort
This beautiful resort is on Disney property, and although kids can enjoy this experience, Four Seasons Resort Orlando can be most enjoyed by couples. You can enjoy a couples massage at the spa, sip your worries away with a cocktail by the adults-only pool, or lounge with friends in our multiple bars and restaurants. They also have a complimentary kids camp, dine in movies, sports courts, and shopping! Your kids can enjoy the character breakfast, make the morning magical by eating breakfast with Goofy and his pals. This resort has it all for you, and trust me, you’ll never want to leave.
Along with all of the magical resorts, Florida has places like Disney Springs, Disney’s Boardwalk, and Universal’s Citywalk for you to dine with your family shop, and experience the nightlife like a true vacationer. I would love to see your family’s stay-cations! Tweet me at @MichelleYarn
