Orlando’s world-class family vacation status ensures a wide choice of lodgings with programs guaranteed to keep kids entertained in the brief moments between theme park visits. From organized camps to swim programs, outdoor family movies, crafts, eco-tours, arcades, even a laser challenge, programs abound that ensure even the surliest teen or pickiest tot will never have to be bored. Most hotels can arrange for child-care, for those evenings when the parents want a little adult conversation. We found 10 hotels with excellent children’s programs.

In addition, the resort offers Camp Hyatt, an activities program for youngsters 3-12 that includes organized nature walks and bike rides, scavenger hunts, marshmallow roasts, and more.
