Orlando, Florida, isn’t all about theme parks, at least not all about theme parks on land. After enjoying the sub-tropical climate for a couple of days, you’ll be desperate to spend some time splashing around in one of Orlando’s famous water parks. Even better, why not stay in a hotel with a water park? Whether you’re interested in swimming up to the edge of an infinity pool, or spending time with your family at the splash pad, these hotels make it easy to have some fun in the sun.
