Orlando: Nick Hotel
water park! We gave the front desk our cell number and they texted us when our room was ready. This was great because it allowed us to enjoy the resort while we waited! Before the kids changed into their swim shorts, we checked out the arcade and played a few games. We went through the gift chops and checked out the dining options too.

There is plenty of poolside entertainment to keep everyone occupied for the day! There's music and games! While we were there, there was never a dull moment. Nick Hotel knows how to entertain kids! It's also fun for the parents! Parents that want to relax and stay out of the heat can reserve a cabana. They come with luxury amentities that will make you forget that you're in the middle of every kid's dream! There is an extra charge, but for a little peace, it might be worth it!
We stayed in one of their 2-Bedroom KidSuites. It offered 485 square feet of comfortable space for up to six with a semi-private kids' bedroom with a 20" television, and movie rentals. I am not sure if Nick cartoons are on 24 hours a day, but every time my kids turned on the TV in their room (to go to sleep) they could fall asleep watching their favorites!
Our room included:
Private Master Bedroom with king or queen bed, 25" TV, lighted make-up mirror, and vanity/work station
Semi-Private kids' bedroom with bunks or twin beds and 20" TV
Family Room with pull-out sleeper sofa, 32" LCD flat screen TV, pay-per-view movies, high-speed internet access, and a table
Kitchenette with mini refrigerator, sink, microwave and coffee maker
Family amenities including an in-room safe, clock radio, hair dryer, and iron and ironing board.
The room was clean and bright! I liked the color scheme and the layout. The bunk room did not have a door, but it wasn't an issue for us. The bunk room had it's own TV and a cool mural on the wall! The mattresses were very comfortable and the linens were pretty high quality. The towels were soft and absorbent and the sheets were smooth and soft! The room darkening shades ensured that I could sleep late if I wanted to!

character breakfast, kids can have their pictures taken with characters (several came by our table) and they even allow the kids to get up and dance with characters!!! Logan had a blast! Afterwards, our lovely waitress brought out birthday cupcakes for the kids after noticing their birthday badges (which were given to them upon check in!) and we noticed other celebrations in progress. What an awesome way to spend a birthday! You can order gifts or cakes from the gift shop. Just be sure to order in advance!
