Enjoy endless resort amenities

This Four Diamond resort known for leisure and fun boasts multiple activities exclusive to resort guests. Plunge into the resort’s family pool with fountains, a water tower and slide, or enjoy quiet time at the adult pool. Don’t forget to hop into the signature wave pool and the 850-foot lazy river for extra rest and relaxation. All pools are heated. Private poolside cabanas are also available by reservation for an extra fee.

Omni Orlando Resort is known for its two 18-hole championship golf courses. But, the entire family can enjoy this pastime together by checking out the family and beginner-friendly18-hole mini golf course and the 9-hole lighted par 3 pitch and putt course, Champions 9. The latter can be enjoyed at nighttime until 8:30pm.

Explore nearby holiday lights

Omni Orlando Resort is just a 15-minute drive from Downtown Celebration which features nightly “snow” plus holiday decorations and a festive, family-friendly atmosphere that can be enjoyed completely outdoors. It’s equally worthwhile to leave the main downtown area, exploring the surrounding neighborhoods on foot to see holiday light displays. The Lights on Jeater Bend is a legendary neighborhood lights display you won’t want to miss.

The resort is also conveniently located close to the Disney theme parks for an extra dose of holiday magic.
