People often do things in hotels that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley and Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night stay at one of five Island One resorts in the Orlando/Kissimmee area, plus two tickets to Central Florida’s popular dinner show, Arabian Nights (up to a $222 value).
Island One’s resort properties, all within minutes of Orlando’s best attractions such as Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios, boast fully equipped kitchens, pools, and an array of other family-friendly amenities. The Barefoot’n Resort sidles up to a serene lake, and Bryan’s Spanish Cove lies within a Mediterranean-style fishing village. With an on-site water park, Liki Tiki Village is primed for gravity experiments and slippery adventures. Sporty gamers will enjoy two pools and a miniature-golf course at Orbit One Vacation Villas and those looking to unwind can lounge amid Parkway International Resort's lush tropical grounds. All resorts are located near attractions such as dinner shows, water parks, and alligator rodeos, but bedroom sizes and other amenities vary by resort. Check individual websites for further details.
The beloved dinner show Arabian Nights showcases spectacular acrobats and riders performing alongside more than 60 horses, making it a favorite among equestrian enthusiasts and former Mr. Ed extras. Lead by two magical genies, the two-hour show tells the storybook tale of a young girl who dreams of becoming a princess. While taking in the sights and sounds of the stage, guests enjoy a three-course meal with six different entrée choices, as well as dessert and unlimited beer and soda. Groupon customers may purchase additional show tickets at a 30% discount.
