THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Congratulations to Rosanne, lucky number 402!
The Holiday Inn Club Vacation properties are some of our favorite properties to stay at when we are traveling. They offer the accommodations and amenities of a hotel and a condominium all rolled into one for a great price. Recently, I took a trip to Orlando, Florida and we stayed in the Holiday Inn Club Vacation at Orange Lake Resort.
The Holiday Inn Club Vacation at Orange Lake Resort is the perfect base camp for your theme park vacation. It is located right next to the Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom Lodge putting it in close proximity of the major Walt Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks.
The Orange Lake Resort has spacious villas in a variety of sizes. There are standard, two and three bedroom villas available. We stayed in a River Island two bedroom villa overlooking the pool area. Our villa had a spacious living room, a balcony, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. At first we thought being located in River Island (one of the most family friendly spots in my opinion) might be loud because of all the families running around, but we were pleasantly surprised. We could spend time splashing around the water and the lazy river and then return to the quiet of our villa and regroup.
Fun in the Sun
The pools…oh, the pools could keep you busy all week long! We spent most of our time at River Island during our visit because it was convenient to walk just a few feet out of our room and be right next to the pool! River Island has several pool areas, a lazy river, a couple of slides, a splash area, the world’s largest inflatable water slide and so much more. There are other pools located around the property. The Splash Lagoon has a splash area, zero entry pools, and water slides. The Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort offers Play Passes that you can purchase (in one or several day increments). These Play Passes offer unlimited use of the HIPPO waterslide and tube rentals for use on the 1200 square foot lazy river. The Play Passes also include unlimited miniature golf at the on-site golf courses and visits to the Euro-Bungee.
There are a number of restaurants on site that vary from poolside bars to sit down restaurants. Grab a drink at the bar and relax in a lounge chair while your kids splash around in the pools. Each villa has a wireless connection that actually worked as I tried to get some work done after long days of play. Pack n’ Plays are available to borrow so you don’t have to travel with your own. They offer activities at various locations of the property ranging from projects to scavenger hunts and dive in movies. There are video arcades, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a putt putt course.
The property is competitively priced so even if you aren’t going to utilize the arcades or the pools (though I think you would be nuts not too…they are lovely pools!) because you plan on spending most of your Orlando vacation at theme parks it is still worth a visit! The best part about the Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort for our group was that when we got home from a long day of waiting in lines and running around theme parks, we had a lovely living room to relax in, a kitchen to cook a late night snack and comfortable beds to lay our heads at night.
