When my family vacations we always want to do as much as we can while we’re there. The budget, on the other hand, doesn’t always agree with us. When in Orlando, I think everyone wants to spend as much time in the water as possible and with many water park options within miles, it can be hard to choose the cheapest one. But can you imagine going on vacation to Orlando and not having to run through your budget for water fun? At Reunion Resort you don’t have to worry about that!
Reunion Resort is home to a private 5-acre water park that your kiddos will want to splish-splash the day away in while you relax and soak in all the sun and fun possible – for FREE! Reunion Resort Water Park has all the features you’d expect from a major water park but without the mass amount of people.
Reunion Resort Water Park
In the center of the park is a massive 1,000 ft. lazy river complete with rock structures and multiple waterfalls plus, a winding 150-foot slide. We stayed at Reunion during the first week of November and although the weather was quite perfect, the water was a tad bit cold. The kids didn’t mind but my husband and I could barely stand it. So if you’re okay with cool water, give it a go and have a blast as my kids did!
One thing to note is that we did not happen to see any complimentary life jackets for little ones. I could have overlooked this but I’ve asked my family and none of them remember seeing them either. There are rafts to float around in but if your kiddo needs a jacket, please bring it or arm floaties just in case.
There’s also a kids’ interactive water playground with multiple twisting slides, wading pool, and a 350-gallon splash bucket.
My three loved this area, even my oldest. The slides were enjoyable and didn’t make the kids go too fast. This area also has cold water but again, the kids got used to it quickly and had a blast.
There is plenty of seating around the park with lots of options for shade. If you’re looking for a more private setting you can rent one of the cabanas for only $75! I absolutely love this option and it’s a great place to hide out in when afternoon rain storms roll through (lasting about 10-15 minutes). Included in your rental are chairs, water bottles, and a fresh fruit platter.
Reunion Resort owners and guests are completely free. If you have friends or family visiting you they will be required to pay an entry fee. I couldn’t believe how much fun we had here and for free, you really can’t ask for more. There are also lawn games, craft events, mermaid swim lessons, and games. Plus, a bar with swinging chairs and outdoor restaurant for poolside meals.
Reunion Resort Activities
A family filled water park not really your style? Maybe one of the three championship golf courses is more like it. One of only six resorts to receive Golf Digest’s “2018 Best Golf Resorts In Florida” designation. Playing at Reunion Resort is definitely something to add to your bucket list. It’s also the only place where you will find Signature Design courses by three of golf’s greatest legends: Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Arnold Palmer. We enjoyed a round on the Watson course on a beautiful Saturday morning. The fairway and greens were all beautifully maintained and perfection to play on. The Watson doesn’t have water hazards but it does have rolling hills and lots of sand traps to be aware of.
The Spa at Reunion Resort is where this mama loved spending her free time. I received a Classic Pedicure and I was pleased to see that they offered OPI polishes which are my favorite. The Classic Pedicure is 50 minutes long which was the perfect getaway after a long day at the water park.
If you and your family are looking for some more water fun but not at the water park, Reunion Resort has many pools on property. Our Villa was in the Centre Court Ridge community which did have its own pool but we opted to visit the Seven Eagles Way Community pool (located directly across from The Grand Resort building) because it is heated! The main pool had a restaurant/bar, yard games, and music to enjoy as well. I love the water park but sometimes a pool is the way to go. It’s nice to have options and especially when it comes in the form of a heated pool.
