Family-Friendly Hotel Minutes from Orlando Theme Parks
Those staying at Embassy Suites Orlando - Lake Buena Vista are just minutes from Orlando's famous attractions, including all four Walt Disney World® Theme Parks, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld. While driving to the theme parks is easy, the most convenient way to get there is by taking the hotel’s complimentary shuttle, which runs throughout the day. This particular Embassy Suites has been designated a Walt Disney World Good Neighbor® Hotel, meaning it meets certain quality standards and has park passes available for purchase at the concierge desk.
You’ll notice the hotel’s Caribbean theme as soon as you enter the open-air atrium—it’s decked out with palm trees, waterfalls, and a fountain. Two-room suites overlook the atrium and are decorated with floral prints and vibrant colors. Each unit includes a separate living area and a sofa bed.
Kids can frolic in their own children’s pool and arcade area, while adults are welcome to mingle at the nightly two-hour manager’s reception, which offers complimentary drinks and light snacks. Gather the whole family and head to the Dive-in Theater, which features poolside viewings of family movies, held four times a week depending on the season.
Each morning begins with a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast, served in the tropical garden atrium. Other dining options include an onsite Pizza Hut and Andiamo Italian Bistro and Grille.
Orlando, Florida: World-Famous Theme Parks and Cultural Surprises
Located in the center of Florida, Orlando may be forever associated with the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks, which are part of the world’s most-visited entertainment resort. It spans roughly 30,000 acres, encompassing four theme parks, two water parks, five golf courses, and the Downtown Disney® Marketplace. There’s no shortage of things to do here: begin your day by boarding a rocket-shaped three-seater that climbs to 180 feet before entering a deep black tunnel and racing past stars, satellites, and constellations. Walk across the park to sample Moroccan cuisine for lunch, or ride a dune buggy through a haunted mansion. Before heading back to the hotel, take in the nightly fireworks, laser, and water show.
Those hoping to shake up the typical theme-park-dominated itinerary can head into downtown Orlando's vibrant arts district. The neighborhood boasts venues such as CityArts Factory, a multifaceted patchwork of gallery spaces, and SAK Comedy Lab, which hosts family-friendly improv shows five nights a week.
About a 10-minute drive north, you’ll find eight cultural institutions at Loch Haven Park, including the Orlando Museum of Art, which houses pieces by Georgia O’Keeffe, Robert Rauschenberg, Ansel Adams, and Andy Warhol. The park is also home to the Orlando Shakespeare Theater, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orlando Science Center. Visit the science center to take a rover across a simulation of Mars’s red surface, or race on a 70-foot pinewood derby track.
