My boy’s favorite part is the basketball court. It’s pretty much a dream come true for them to be able to play basketball while on vacation!

The outdoor pool has a shallow end that little ones will appreciate. The sea lion in the pool is definitely a plus.

Bedrooms 

 

The bedrooms either have one King sized bed or Two Queens. There are also rooms that are wheelchair accessible to accommodate guests who may have this need.

I absolutely love that the guest rooms have separate bedrooms. It makes it so much easier to give little ones (or dad’s) a nap when you can close the door.

 

Kitchenette

 

Although Homewood Suites offers free breakfast for all guests, it is nice to have a kitchen to prepare other snacks and meals in your own room.

This perk has definitely come in handy having three growing boys!

 

The kitchenette has a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, and cook top. There are also pots, pans, and other cooking items already in the rooms!

 

Bathroom

 

Each guest room had a large bathroom. I love that the sink and vanity are separate from the toilet and tub/shower.

This definitely helps save time in the morning when everyone is trying to get ready for the day at the same time.

One of the benefits of staying at Homewood Suites in Orlando is the complimentary breakfast and Evening Social.

But the best part about breakfast at Homewood Suites is the Mickey Waffles! They have not one, but two Mickey Mouse Waffle Irons.

 

One iron makes a large waffle and the other makes several smaller waffles.
