An Orange Lake Experience

A February 2003 trip to Orange County by steven d

Quote: This was the first trip with my pessimistic brother and his wife on a vacation that was the best we all had since we were small children. Seven perfect days, a dinner show, Seaworld, and a putt-putt tourney not to mention nightly password and euchre games - we laughed till our sides hurt. We can't wait until the next one we take.

An Orange Lake Experience

Overview

Quote:
The Arabian Nights Dinner was something we did not expect - the food was fantastic, the show hillarious, and the horses a night to remember.

Quick Tips:

Get to the dinner shows early so you can see the pre-dinner entertainment.

Best Way To Get Around:

We drove two cars down but used only one while there. The exercise walking all over the grounds was great, but would love to see bicycles to use or rent.

Very clean but the bathrooms were molding - a common problem in Flordia. Large and spacious rooms and a nice view into the woods. In fact, we have a pet raccoon that visited us nightly for the past five years we have returned.

Restaurant

For adults, and we had the best pizza in a relaxed atmosphere for under $20! When we finished we went around the corner to watch Ice Age like a bunch of kids and laughed and cried. Cute movie!

SeaWorld Orlando

Attraction | "Sea World"

Quote:
Sometimes the pre-shows are funnier than the show itself. The mimes and seeing the animals is wonderful.

The shows that we saw were mezmerizing. The talent in the young people is awesome. Then the wonderful animals are always accomodating. Best time of the year to go is in February - less traffic and smaller crowds. No waiting in lines for anything!

Story/Tip

I see a major need for the resort. This would be bicycle rentals for on property use. Adults only, along with three wheelers. There could be some way of allowing them to go to the store and keep them safe at the same time without having them stolen. A mini-GPS device maybe?
