Our Omni Orlando Resort Family Vacation was such a blast! Do you know why the Omni Orlando Resort is perfect for Multigenerational families? Today I am sharing our trip to Florida and why the Omni Orlando Resort is perfect for large groups traveling together.
I am so excited to share with you our latest trip to Florida and our partnership with the Omni Orlando Hotel at Championsgate. As many of you know, we were until recently, a four generational family living under one roof. For over 8 years, my grandparents, my parents and my family all lived together and we managed to do so without killing each other! -ha. That isn’t to say that we didn’t have a few close calls though ;).
We are now three generations living under one roof as both of my grandparents recently passed away and this past Thanksgiving, we all spent a week at the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate.
Family Vacation to Orlando Florida
We have traveled many times together and one of the biggest things we find challenging is finding a place that has activities for all ages. When your group varies in age from 12 to 7o years old, it’s often difficult making everyone happy!
My dad and son are like two little kids together. Well, my son is already a kid but for some reason, when the two of them are together my dad acts like he is a teen too!
The Omni Orlando Resort is not only in a perfect location but the resort itself has a variety of attractions, dining options and onsite activities that you do not even need to leave the resort.
Sunset Lodge and Suites
My mom and I usually plan the family traveling excursions and the first thing we look for is accomodations that have adjoining rooms and some kind of a kitchen/living room setup.
For this trip, my parents had a king suite with a balcony overlooking the golf course. Their room was connected to a queen studio suite which was also connected to another queen studio suite.
The Omni Orlando Resort offers the newly renovated Sunset Lodge and Suites for large families and groups traveling together. They are ideal for groups, girlfriend and golf getaways, and multi-generational family vacations.
The setup was beyond perfect. There was plenty of space for privacy and watching tv during down time.
Omni Orlando Resort On-Site Activities
For kids they offer a slew of activities. Everything from golfing, fishing, an Eco Tour, arcade, a wave pool and lazy river that my son never left.
Captain Eric is in charge of the Echo Tours and all the fishing activities so if you ever visit the Orlando Omni, be sure to ask for Eric! My son went multiple days kayaking and fishing with Eric and had a great time. He took us on a golf cart ride throughout the property to look at all the wildlife.
The onsite miniature golf course and putting ranges were so much fun even if I was really bad at it!
The adult pool on site is gorgeous and secluded offering the perfect opportunity for adults to relax and enjoy some adult time.
What I loved about the resort is my son had plenty to do with my parents while Jim and I enjoyed some adult time either at the pool, Mokara Spa or golf course. That is one of the biggest benefits of traveling as a multigenerational family and staying at a place that has something to offer for all ages.
It worked out great as my parents were thrilled to hang at the pool or miniature golf with my son while Jim and I spent an afternoon at the spa or golfing.
Pretty amazing right?
We had a cabana for my parents a couple of the days at the pool and they thoroughly enjoyed being close to all the activities yet tucked away in their cabana where my mom read and my dad slept!
What I loved most about the cabana was there was extra space for food and a refrigerator to keep drinks cold. It was a great central meeting spot for everyone and was conveniently located near the wave pool and slides where my son hung out.
Dining Options at the Omni Orlando Resort
The Omni Orlando Resort dining options are all great but my personal favorite was the newly renovated David’s Club Restaurant. The bar atmosphere was great for after dinner and the food was delicious.
We ate at Trevi’s most mornings which has a full hot buffet, omelet and cereal station and a variety of gourmet breads and jams. The pool areas offer outdoor dining options as well as outdoor cocktail lounges.
If eating on the golf course strikes your fancy, Piper’s Grille and Lounge is a great spot at the resort located in the Clubhouse which offers a full breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their bar area is also great in the afternoon after a round of golf.
We had Deb our amazing waitress at Piper’s Grill snap this picture one morning after breakfast just before Jim and I headed out to golf for the day.
While we were golfing, my son spent the day with my parents at the pool and waterslides on property.
Orlando Florida Area Attractions
We spent a day at Epcot which was a short shuttle ride from the Omni Resort and had such a great time. Walt Disney World and Universal are very close to the Omni along with a variety of other local attractions.
The Omni Orlando Resort has 36 holes of championship golf and 15 acres of recreation. It’s a Four Diamond resort and is one of the nation’s premier golf, meeting and leisure destinations. The resort also offers a signature spa, multiple sparkling pools, a lazy river, waterslides for kids, a fun wave pool which makes it the perfect getaway for adults and children.
Our Omni Orlando Resort family vacation was so much fun and I highly recommend you check out the Omni Orlando Resort for your next family vacation or if you are traveling with a large group.
