A staycation just isn't as stimulating as it was the first couple of times: The pizza delivery guy appearing at the front door is now your idea of a "show," and the last amusing "ride" you took was courtesy of the comical bus driver on your morning commute. It's past time to find entertainment elsewhere.
Embark to the city of theme parks with this week's Escape toRadisson Resort Orlando-Celebration from Orlando Vacation Packages USA, and revel in a four-night stay for two adults and two little princes and princesses (ages 10 and under) in a room with a standard king-size bed or two double beds for $386, including a daily breakfast buffet and other complimentary amenities like a daily shuttle to the theme parks, parking, and high-speed Internet access.
Have a field day at Walt Disney World®, where four theme parks and two water parks hold endless thrills and special events like the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival and Epcot®International Food & Wine Festival. Or venture to Universal Studios®and the other amusement parks for the roller coasters and the live performances.
Indulge in pleasurable pastimes when you aren't on the rides: swim in the sprawling pool with a 40-foot waterslide, dine at quaint eateries across the street in Celebration Town Center, or shop till you drop at the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. Celebration Golf Club—a championship-caliber course—is close to the hotel, and if you haven't gotten enough exercise chasing the kids around the parks, try out the hotel's new fitness center.
At the end of the day, the frozen cocktails at the pool bar hit the spot, the Mediterranean-inspired fare at Mandolin's pleases palates of all ages, and the tired kids are sleeping beauties. And you've managed to take an away-cation while staying within your budget.
