5 Tips for Staying at a Waterpark Resort
Whether you are hitting the theme parks or relaxing by the pool with the family, waterpark resorts are an easy way to mix fun with your accommodations. Central Florida is home to several waterpark hotels and resorts. Flamingo Waterpark Resort is located just minutes from some of Orlando and Kissimmee’s largest attractions.
Staying at a waterpark resort in Central Florida is a blast. Here are some tips our team of waterpark professionals has put together for your stay.
1. Lots and lots of sun protection!
One of the number one forgotten items is potentially the most important while staying at a waterpark hotel in Central Florida: Sun protection. Even on overcast days, the sun can be brutal while enjoying the waterpark amenities with your family. Most resorts offer the sale of sunscreen while on the property to alleviate the stress of frying with the family. Here at Flamingo Waterpark Resort, we have a 24-hour pantry corner, where you can find all your sun protection needs and even snacks to feed your waterpark fiends! Additionally, if the sunscreen doesn’t quite cut it, we have cabanas located right off the lazy river’s edge!
2. Leave the cooler in the room.
Choosing between the waterparks in Kissimmee and the surrounding area can be a daunting task. However, there is nothing worse than having to drag your cooler to and from your room as your family comes and goes from the waterpark. Choosing a waterpark resort with amenities such as a pool-side tiki bar can make all the difference. Bonus points if they keep the frozen drinks on tap like the pros here at Flamingo.
3. It should be more than just slides.
Don’t get us wrong, slides are essential to the waterpark experience. However, be sure that at the waterpark resort you choose, there is more to do than just fly down the slides. This is especially important if you are bringing along small children. Many accommodations like Flamingo Waterpark Resort have dedicated areas for children’s waterpark amenities. Along with other options to enjoy outside of the water. For example, after drying off from our lazy river, guests can feel free to enjoy the PlayStation game room and other amenities.
4. Safety! Safety! Safety!
Safety is paramount while staying at a waterpark resort, especially if you are with children. Making sure that all height requirements are met and strong supervision is in place at all times. Additionally, most waterpark resorts offer safety essentials for sale within the lobby. Within our pantry corner, we have a wide selection of floats, goggles, and other safety items to make sure you are ready for whatever the waterpark has got!
