Encounter unforgettable adventures and unexpected sights in Central Florida, where year-round sunshine and golden beaches combine with a seemingly endless list of entertainment for all ages. Our expansive resort is located in the center of it all.
For family fun, explore the area’s world-famous amusement parks. The Walt Disney World® Resort, Epcot®, Disney's Animal Kingdom®, and the Universal Orlando Resort—home to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter—are all less than ten miles away. Make memories at Legoland Florida with a hot air balloon ride or skydive in a vertical wind tunnel. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers a different type of aeronautical adventure. View the Space Shuttle Atlantis(SM), try the Astronaut Training Experience (ATX)®, and lunch with a real astronaut. Animal lovers will enjoy Sea World® Orlando, Discovery Cove, and the Sea Life Aquarium—each within five miles. For a truly wild ride, venture to Gatorland or take an airboat to the Everglades.
On International Drive, restaurants and shopping unite with nightclubs, live music, movie theaters, and, as of early 2015, the Orlando Eye: a sibling of the London Eye. Destination shopping is also available at the renowned Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, Orlando Premium Outlets, and Mall at Millennia, all within a ten-mile radius of the resort.
And don’t forget the city’s famous sports teams. October through April, you can catch the NBA’s Orlando Magic at play, while March through May MLB Spring Training takes place in multiple locations. Racing fans can plan a daytrip to Daytona Beach for packed racetracks, speed weeks, and exhibitions—from NASCAR's Daytona 500 to its Firecracker 400. You can also channel your inner athlete by playing 18 holes at the nearby Grand Pines Golf Club.
The Orlando/Orange County Convention Center is also conveniently positioned three miles from our front door while the Amway Center—Orlando’s top concert and event venue—is just a short drive away.
