With amazing places to swim, theme parks to visit, and family-friendly activities to participate in, Orlando has no shortage of ways to keep kids entertained. But on those hot, Florida sunny days, it can be incredibly relaxing (and fun!) to visit pools at Orlando area hotels and resorts with your children. Enter ResortPass, an online booking service that allows you to purchase a day pass for Orlando area pools without having to stay overnight at the hotel that maintains them.
Through ResortPass, parents can book both a day pass to use a resort’s pool facilities and a private cabana, perfect for relaxing and grabbing lunch while the kids wear themselves out. Spend the day enjoying splash pads, swimming in kiddie pools, and jumping on water slides.
Trying to avoid hearing, “mom, I’m bored,” or, “dad, I’m hot,” on hot days? These Orlando area ResortPass pools are perfect for spending a day splashing, cooling off, and enjoying time together as a family.
