A quiet natural respite or high-flying theme park thrills? You can have both on your next family vacation with this week's Escape to Maingate Lakeside Resort in Kissimmee, Florida, a family-friendly waterfront resort nestled on a palm-lined campus just outside Orlando.
Experience the best of both worlds during a two-night stay for up to four guests in a King or Double Room ($189) with included Wi-Fi, self-parking, shuttle service to surrounding theme parks, and two tickets for dinner and a show with drinks. Have your coffee cake and eat it too with a classic American breakfast buffet from Greenhouse Restaurant—kids ages ten and under eat for free with a paying adult.
With three swimming pools and a miniature golf course, Maingate's diverse collection of activities ensures that your clan will bounce from poolside to commercial attractions with ease. Snag some snacks from the General Store and get ready to take advantage of everything this area has to offer.
"With its gleeful bombast, over-the-top showmanship, and extravagant deployment of dreams as quotidien entertainment, Orlando may be the most "American" city in the nation," says Travel + Leisure. "It's also the most popular family destination on earth; some 50 million visitors a year flood its theme parks and hotels in ceaseless pursuit of childhood fantasy (or regression)."
Come sundown, gallop over to the most-popular dinner show in Orlando: Arabian Nights. The 90-minute program—featuring more than 60 horses—tells the story of the beautiful princess Sheherezade. As she searches for her prince, guests accompany her on an enchanting journey of music, lights, and acrobatics, from genies to Gypsies and so much more.
No need to pick and choose—with this week's Orlando-area Escape, you can truly have it all.
