Summer Kick Off At Enchanted Evenings Waldorf Orlando

Enchanted Evenings Waldorf Astoria Orlando

If you are looking for a fun Orlando family staycation or are visiting the area this summer, you must check out Enchanted Evenings at Waldorf Astoria Orlando.

We kicked off our summer again this year at the Waldorf. The entire crew was over the top excited to not only count down to end of school, but count down to Waldorf weekend 2015. (It’s now a tradition)

Our absolute favorite thing about the Waldorf is the pool area that features lawn games and cozy places to lounge. All summer during Enchanted Evenings, there are special activities at the pool like scavenger hunts, lawn games, derby car building and racing, fun fireside stories next to the humungous fire pit, smore’s night and Kids Club Astoria After Dark. The zero entry pool is awesome and Aquamarine has a great selection of food (for everyone in the family) and cocktails.

The new texting concierge service is now my favorite perk at the Waldorf. Sitting poolside with a question about dinner and all I had to do was text the concierge!

Mamma Mia Blog Kicks off Summer!

Parents who are looking to get away at the spa or the amazing onsite restaurant Bull & Bear can make a reservation through the concierge and automatically get a $50 credit per child for Kids Club Astoria After Dark (which is $75 per child). Now, that’s a hard offer to turn down.

The kids love, love, love Oscar’s for breakfast. This buffet is huge and everything is fresh and pretty much just awesomely delish. There are fresh squeezed juices like carrot orange and melon juices, cheeses, fruits, pastries and an entire hot bar with cooks preparing crepes and omelettes to order.

Our room had a pool view this year and we were able to kick back, relax and enjoy the Disney fireworks display both evenings! I’ve seen those fireworks from many a location and this might be my favorite – on the balcony with a glass of wine surrounded by my family.

Enchanted Evenings runs through September 6 and rates start at $199. A full line up of activities is listed here.

As always, happy travels!
