Ooh, I can feel it now - the warm Florida sunshine on my fur! Tucker here, and I'm so excited to tell you that my parents just told me we’re planning a trip to Holiday Inn Resort Orlando - Lake Buena Vista in Orlando, Florida. My tail won't stop wagging! I've heard they have plenty of activities for all of us, and they treat us four-legged guests just like family!
I can't contain my excitement any longer, so I'm going to call up Paul Varma, the Director of Sales & Marketing at the resort, for more details on what we have to look forward to when we visit!
Tucker: So, what can you tell me about the Holiday Inn Resort Orlando - Lake Buena Vista that makes it a great place for my family and me to visit?
Paul: Well, Tucker, Holiday Inn Resort Orlando - Lake Buena Vista is a great family and pet-friendly resort, located just one mile from the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. This Orlando-area resort offers a premium location near SeaWorld, Universal Studios, Orlando Premium Outlets and more. You and your family can stay comfortably in a modern guest room or suite. There's also breakfast, lunch or dinner at the on-site Applebee’s (where Kids Eat Free) and your pet parents can splash around in our large outdoor heated pool. With plenty of activities for the entire family (four-legged members included), including an indoor arcade, movie theater, outdoor Tiki bar and pool games, your stay at Holiday Inn Resort Orlando-Lake Buena Vista is sure to be magical!
Tucker: That sounds great! So, since I'm a pretty big dog (if I do say so myself), are all big dogs like me allowed? How about other types of pets? And, is there a fee for us to come with our families?
Paul: Our pet policy is very generous and cost-effective for pups like you, Tucker. We allow up to 2 pets per guest room, with different fees for different pets. For example, pets up to 50 lbs. are $40 for the first 4 nights, and $10/night thereafter. Pets over 50 lbs. are $75 for the first 4 nights, and $10/night per pet thereafter. So, yes - big (and small) dogs are welcome to visit! Plus, our spacious suites offer plenty of room for pets and family, so you'll have plenty of room to spread out and relax after a day of exploring!
Tucker: Paw-fect! Speaking of that, are there any pet friendly things to do that are close by to the resort?
Paul: There's plenty, Tucker! You and your pet parents can visit nearby Dr. Phillips Community Park and Osprey Park - great places to run and play. For a more adventurous outing, you can try Stand Up Paddle boarding at Buena Vista Watersports - which is just a short walking distance from the resort.
Tucker: And, how about special amenities that are on-site at the Holiday Inn Resort Orlando - Lake Buena Vista . . . do you have any of those?
Paul: We sure do! We offer a free pet welcome gift at check-in! There's also a designated outdoor pet walking area, so you can go outside, sniff around, and get your wiggles out! So, whether you decide to stay on-site or go exploring, there's something for you and your whole family to experience and do at or near our resort. We can't wait for your visit, too!
Tucker: Thank you so much for all the great information, Paul - I'm more excited than ever for our trip! I'll pass all of this along to my parents, too, and they'll be just as excited as I am to come and visit Holiday Inn Resort Orlando - Lake Buena Vista! I'm going to grab my leash and towel, just to get a head start on packing for our big getaway!
