Orlando World Center Marriott Offers Full Week of Family Fun for Labor Day

Orlando Resort Offers Activities, New Slide Tower, and Great Rates for the Holiday

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - For Labor Day, families usually take a short weekend trip, hoping to pack in a last bit of summer fun before the kids head back to school. Those who want to honor the end of summer with an amazing escape, however, should head to the Orlando World Center Marriott. At this family-friendly Orlando hotel, guests will get a great deal and access to a long list of fun activities.

From August 31st through September 6th, Orlando hotel accommodations are available for as low as $129 a night, and everyone from moms and dads to teens and toddlers can take their pick from numerous amenities and activities.

For the entire week, this Orlando resort will host hula-hoop, 3-legged, bucket-and-sponge, relay, pool noodle and potato sack races and a scavenger hunt; serve up root beer floats and cotton candy; and give kids the chance to play with play dough and create their own chalk. Sports inflatables will be available Friday through Monday, and Saturday, August 31st will host a special patriotic fireworks display to mark the occasion. 

In addition to the special Labor Day activities, kids can enjoy special treatment year-round at this Orlando hotel. The chance to get a closer look at one of nature's biggest beasts is available at Gatorland every Saturday from 12pm-3pm (extended through Monday for Labor Day Weekend); the new Slide Tower features two, 200-foot winding waterslides and one, 90-foot speed waterslide -- among the tallest and fastest resort slides in Florida; and the Splash Zone offers a kid's zero-entry pool, pop jets, water cannons and more. Of course a visit to Orlando wouldn't be complete without the theme park experience, whether it's heading to the parks or interacting with their favorite characters when they visit the hotel.

Kids aren't the only ones to get in on the fun. Adults can enjoy a round or two at Hawk's Landing Golf Club; spend a leisurely day at the full-service spa or adults-only pools; or work up some healthy competition on the tennis, basketball, volleyball and racquetball courts.
