Want to get away for a little while? Want to do something crazy that you've never done before? Or maybe you just want a really relaxing vacation with the kids at one of the most beautiful resorts in Orlando...well then, you're in luck! Right now through September 30, 2018, over 20 Hilton family hotels in Orlando are offering a brand new Experience Orlando package, giving Hilton Honors guests the chance to enjoy Orlando activities beyond the theme parks during their visit. I mean there is so much more to Orlando than Disney World and Universal Studios - I should know, I go there all the time!
Firstly, if you aren't already a Hilton Honors Member, you need to register ASAP because you get all sorts of perks depending on your membership level. But ALL Hilton guests who book the Experience Orlando package will get exclusive access to over $200 worth of unique discounts at over a dozen attractions and experiences around Central Florida, from family-oriented to thrilling adventures!
First of all, Hilton Hotels are known for the elegance, convenient locations around the world - I've stayed at Hilton properties everywhere from Downtown Miami, Orlando, to international locations like Barbados and Croatia, and the quality and service are standard, no matter the location. Hilton is a brand you can trust, you always know that you can rely on them. You're never going to be un-pleasantly surprised at a Hilton property.
Yes, those beds were the Hilton quality we've all come to know and love...I slept like a rock, which means a lot coming from this insomniac!
I had a short girlfriend's getaway weekend which included a complimentary stay at the Orlando Hilton, amongst other perks...the first thing we did was check out the pool area, as we heard a rumor that there was a lazy river....
Yeah, that was our favorite part of the Orlando Hilton, I won't lie. We are all south Florida girls and we had such an amazing time at their pool that we actually napped, and missed an activity that was included in our package. *insert frown here*
The Orlando Hilton not only has an amazing lazy river, fully stocked hotel bar with a food menu, but they also have an adults-only pool, featured above.
Not to worry, though - the pool area is so large that you'll never have to worry about a crowd!
Guys...not only is there a lazy river, a huge pool, a separate area for those adults who would like a little quiet time...but there. is. a water. slide.
So, while we girls spent most of our time at the pool at the Orlando Hilton, we did venture out to knock a few things off my friend's bucket list - things that you can save BIG on with the Experience Orlando package!
I'll give you a hint. It involved the sunrise.
It involved a big inflatable object...
WE WENT ON A HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE over Orlando with Orlando Balloon Rides!
It was quite the experience, and coincidentally, my best friend Shelly is turning forty in August and this is one of the things that was on her bucket list to do before she turned 40! I was so happy that this Experience Orlando package allowed us to make that happen!
There are tons of activities to choose from in the Experience Orlando package, but we chose the ones that we knew we'd enjoy doing as a group together. We were supposed to visit Wild Florida, but unfortunately...we are no longer spring chickens, and after having to be at the Orlando Balloon Rides meeting at 5:30 AM...well, we needed a nap and missed our air boat ride.
We did however, wake up in time to make it to a beer tasting and tour at Orlando Brewing, a craft organic brewing company.
We sat with one of the founders and tasted quite the selection of beers!
While we were only in Orlando for about 48 hours, we had an amazing adventure and created memories that will last us a lifetime!
