We have been blessed to a lot of good places around Florida for vacation. One thing we've learned for sure, is you want to be in a place were you can stay wet. I would either pick something on the ocean or head to Central Florida and do the disney stuff. If you go to Cocoa Beach, make sure you checkout the backcountry paddle park. Most the time we are here in Orlando doing our thing at the attractions. This is one beautiful hotel, about as good as you can get for small kids that love sports. Trust me for sure the adults will have a good time here. We stayed here twice, the first time we were in the All-Star Football building. You're going to like it all including the Surfs Up pool. I think the best thing about staying at one of these hotels is you have opportunities for fun and Quick Service Food like the End Zone Food Court. Because the security is so good and you're in a confined complex that's gated, your kids can walk to get food by themselves as long as they're old enough. Teenagers will love this, and they like a little independence. The best way to describe it is bring your swimsuit for the Splashable All-Star Sports!
