Disney World gets all the hype when it comes to having fun in Orlando, but the city's resorts certainly know how to step up to the entertaining plate. At Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort, centrally located between the Disney parks and Universal Studios, you will find a sprawling playground for kids and adults. Fresh off a $25 million makeover, the resort hosts 490 updated guest rooms and an updated pool complex with two new pools, a 79-foot slide, water sports, and weekly dive-in movies.
You can take a break from the sun with a soothing massage at the Top of the Palms Spa, or slip in a reenergizing workout at the new fitness center. Dinner is best served at Zest—the hotel's Florida-inspired restaurant where you can feast on menu items like pomegranate glazed salmon and citrus-marinated mahimahi sandwiches with house-made chips. You might be tempted to skip the parks.
