Visitors to Orlando will have another reason to celebrate this 4th of July and summer, as Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek presents “SummerBlast!,” now through Sept. 4, 2012. This summer-long schedule of special events, activities and programs celebrates 104 days of summer vacation.
The SummerBlast! program is for guests of Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, conveniently located inside the gates of Walt Disney World® Resort. The summer-long schedule for SummerBlast! includes ongoing events, as well as special activities throughout the season.
We recently enjoyed a couple of days at the resort and had an amazing time. From the hotel, to the staff, to the food; everything was beyond perfect.
When you stay at the Hilton Bonnet Creek make sure you get the “Disney View”. It’s absolutely breathtaking looking out of the window. I was even able to see the Mickey Hat and Tower of Terror from Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the distance, good thing I had a long zoom lens so I could capture it.
