Orlando is famous for family fun! But vacation planning can feel overwhelming when deciding where to stay, eat, and how to get around. That’s why partnering with Westgate Resorts in Florida is a great option. They make the process easy by offering spacious rooms, multiple dining choices, heated pools, and fun amenities and activities after check-in. The Westgate Vacation Villas Resort and Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa even have on-site water parks for families to enjoy.
Westgate Vacation Villas Resort and Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa
Both Westgate Resorts in Orlando have excellent features for family fun. First, I’ll discuss their similarities and later their differences.
Spacious Accommodations for Families in Orlando
Perfect Rooms for Large or Small Families
With spacious rooms, these resorts are ideal for family trips. They have the perfect villa for your family size and needs – from a Studio Villa sleeping 4 to a Four Bedroom Presidential Villa sleeping 12. Small and large families can have ample space and feel at home. They would also be great for a family reunion. The Orlando rooms have expected amenities like a work desk, TV, iron, bathroom, and Wi-Fi. They also have some nice extras!
Separate Shower and Jetted Tub
A fabulous jetted tub ensures real relaxation. Bring your bath salts to take advantage of the huge tub! Or get bath bombs at the on-site marketplace if needed.
Kitchenette and Dining Area
Having a kitchenette appeals to families – it’s convenient and can save money by cooking some meals and snacks. The equipped kitchenette varies but all have at least a mini-fridge, microwave, sink, coffee/tea maker, cookware, and flatware. Dining space may be inside or on the patio/balcony.
The Westgate Vacation Villas Resort and Town Center Resort are like a ‘two-for-one’ package deal. They have the same amenities and restaurants. Mainly, Town Center has more hotel-style rooms in tall buildings while Vacation Villas has more townhouse-style rooms.
Lots of On-Site Activities at These Orlando Resorts
Water Parks & Pools
Both resorts feature a Water Park with a Pirate Ship, Lazy River and Water Slides for guests to enjoy! Little kids love the splash pad, older kids love the slides, and adults love the lazy river! This is a great family feature – enjoy the water park around your child’s schedule. Easily go back to your room for nap time. Get out of the sun or grab forgotten items. So convenient and invaluable when you have kids!
Plus there are multiple pools throughout each resort. Westgate Lakes has 7 outdoor heated pools, 7 kiddie pools, and 6 hot tubs. Westgate Vacation Villas has 14 heated outdoor pools and hot tubs.
