We were very fortunate to have excellent weather on our trip. Cabana Bay was an excellent value. it was very close to all that was going on. We did not have to rent a car as we shuttled to the resort and we used the hotel shuttle to all the resorts. The resort was clean, friendly and vibrant. There ...
My daughter and I recently stayed at The Grove for a long weekend. From the first moment we arrived until we left, we were very impressed!! Every staff member that we encountered was so friendly, from the security staff to the front desk staff to the gift shop and restaurant staff. The rooms are ...
Hotel is convenient to Orlando International Airport. Easy drive from the airport and a few restaurants in the area make meal planning simple. Rooms are comfortable as standard hotels go. Bedding was plush and very comfortable. But... There is airport noise that might disturb some lighter ...
Layout of hotel is just too wipespead. Long walk from parking lot to room. Our room had clothes left in the drawer from the prior guests and trash cans with no trash bags. Not what we expected for a Disney hotel.
We booked hotel because of the proximity to Universal and free shuttle. We were never able to use the shuttle because they were always booked at the time we wanted to depart. It defeats the purpose of the shuttle if it picks up at 3 other properties first. We stayed during the cold spell and our ...
My first, but not last, staying at hotel. This Hyatt was quite, clean, and I had a nice view of airport’s runway. Stores and restaurants are only steps away. I highly recommend this hotel for any one looking for a “cruise ship” feel without the ship. Booking my next stay soon.
I stayed here with my girlfriend to enjoy Florida and Disney for the first time. The hotel staff was nice, the room itself was a room. If your looking for a comfy spot to stay while being out most the time this is for you; if your looking for a new up to date room go stay somewhere expensive. I loved ...
The beating heart of Florida, Orlando attracts visitors from all corners of the world and is only a few hours' drive from the state's other major cities including Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami and Naples. Home to more than a dozen spectacular amusement parks and hundreds of smaller attractions, it also boasts upscale shopping and delicious dining. A combination of world-class resorts and affordable accommodations has helped establish Orlando as a magnet for families in search of a good-time vacation.
Ask anyone what their favorite things about Orlando are and they’ll likely point out its two major draws: Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. Beyond these theme park giants, Orlando actually has a whole host of individual amusement parks for guests of all ages, especially adults with the hearts of big kids.
What started out as a single amusement park in 1971 proved so popular, it grew into four: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Your favorite movie characters, both old and new, wander around the parks, so be sure to get a picture with the likes of Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Riding some of the world's most famous roller coasters can be tiring, so after a long day of seeking thrills, head to Downtown Disney to eat at Fulton's Crab House and catch a movie at the 24-screen AMC theater. Don't forget to stop in The Lego Store, the single largest shop dedicated to anything and everything Lego.
Both Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are appropriate for families and kids of all ages, but if Walt Disney World is better suited for younger children, Universal Studios might appeal more to young adults. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter stirred much excitement in 2010, and now you can even take a walk down Diagon Alley.
Just outside Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures sits CityWalk, which offers visitors movie-themed shopping and dining opportunities such as Bubba Gump Shrimp.
If it’s been your lifelong dream to swim with dolphins, make it come true at SeaWorld's Discovery Cove. You'll also be able to interact with a huge variety of other animals including whales, exotic birds and fish. Think of SeaWorld as the world's best petting zoo.
Of course, your stay wouldn't be complete without going on SeaWorld's water slides and roller coasters. With a unique blend of entertainment and education, families can spend a whole day here and never get bored.
Legoland is a must for Lego collectors of all ages. The park is decorated with custom sculptures, and guests can experiment with millions of different Lego bricks at the Lego Factory. A large botanical garden takes advantage of Orlando's tropical climate.
Each amusement park offers themed accommodations in Florida, but there are plenty more Orlando hotels to suit every budget and taste. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites offers low rates for spacious and comfortable lodgings, with a free shuttle bus taking you to nearby attractions. For a luxurious stay, the JW Marriot Orlando Grand Lakes treats you to an on-site golf course and eleven restaurants.
Thanks to its tropical climate, Orlando is home to exotic plants and wildlife not found anywhere else. Bromeliads, palm trees and bougainvillea vines keep the city colorful throughout the year, and mild winters allow the amusement parks to remain open during all seasons.
Millions of families flock to Orlando during the summer, and a significant number head to the city around Christmas. If you want to beat the lines at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, plan your vacation from September to November, or from February to April, when the weather is mild.
You need a car or Über experience as the hotel is off the beaten path.
Awesome deal and great location close to Disney. The area around the hotel has lots of good food and other shopping as well.
Good use if space for how the room is designed. Loved the bunk bed for our kids.
My daughter and I recently stayed at The Grove for a long weekend. From the first moment we arrived until we left, we were very impressed!! Every staff member that we encountered was so friendly, from the security staff to the front desk staff to the gift shop and restaurant staff. The rooms are gorgeous and have a very clean, modern feel with a palette of blues and grays. Every room has a balcony and a full size kitchen with a dishwasher, refrigerator and washer and dryer. The pool and fitness center were very nice as well and the water park is almost completed and will be so nice for families with young children. I highly recommend The Grove and would definitely stay here again!
