Golf Courses and Water Park on Gated Property Close to Theme Parks
Guests of the Reunion Resort have easy access to Orlando’s theme parks and a slew of onsite activities. The 5-star resort has its own water park, complete with a 1,000-foot-long lazy river, 10 swimming pools, restaurants, and spa. Also on the property are three 18-hole golf courses, each designed by a legend of the game: Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer.
Each villa has free WiFi and a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The resort’s restaurants and snack bars provide numerous options for out-of-room dining. The Eleven lounge on the top floor specializes in American cuisine, but its major draws are handcrafted cocktails and a rooftop pool with views of Orlando.
Kissimmee, Florida: Sun-Drenched Community near Orlando’s Amusement Parks
Located just southwest of Orlando, Kissimmee lies less than 30 minutes from central Florida's most popular attractions, including the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks, SeaWorld Orlando, and Universal Orlando Resort. At the latter’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can peruse Zonko's Joke Shop, sip butter beer at the Three Broomsticks, and speed through the sky on a hippogriff.
Orlando may be best known for its amusement parks, but the restaurant scene is starting to garner attention. Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse and James Beard Award winner Norman Van Aken both have restaurants here. Many local eateries offer fresh seafood from the Atlantic Ocean, seasoned with the flavors of Caribbean nations such as Cuba and Jamaica.
"The grounds at Reunion Resort are impeccable and peaceful. The villas are very spacious. The best amenities and staff create the ultimate world class experience." – Janelle, Groupon Getaways
