Tour of the River Island Water Park Area of Orange Lake Resort Orlando

River Island Orange Lake Resort Orlando

We recently brought you a photo tour of the accommodations at Holiday Inn Club Vacations Orange Lake Resort near Walt Disney World.

Today I want to take you on a tour of the most memorable part of our Orange Lake vacation! The River Island water park area of the property.  This is a 12 acre Florida water wonderland!  The best part…the 1,200 foot lazy river that winds around waterfalls and palm trees.  Talk about relaxing!

My mother, who was with us on this vacation, is disabled and she was thrilled with the zero depth entry areas of the River Island pools which are all connected to each other by the lazy river. This was the first time in YEARS that she was able to actually get into a pool and lazy river. We had so much fun! Just watching her be able to experience something that she couldn’t do at other resorts warmed my heart!

Here is the pricing structure for the River Island activities. Of course general use of the pool and lazy river is free with your stay.

The “Fun Zone” area of River Island also features a HUGE waterslide called the HIPPO as well as a rock wall, put put golf, volleyball and a bungee jump.

Tour a Standard Villa at Orange Lake Resort Orlando Near Walt Disney World

Orange Lake Resort Standard Villa

Last week my family and I got to experience two magnificent days at an amazing resort here in Kissimmee near Walt Disney World…Holiday Inn Club Vacations Orange Lake Resort.  This resort property features 2,478 villas, 54 holes of golf, 7 pools, 6 retail and pro shops and 9 restaurants.  Needless to say we did not leave the resort grounds during our stay and just kicked back and relaxed.  I have lots to share with you but I first wanted to give you a look around a standard 2-bedroom villa at the resort.  The standard villa can sleep 8. The master bedroom houses a king bed and the second bedroom holds two queen size beds.  As you can see above there is a pull-out bed in the living room that will sleep two additional guests.
