Parents and kids can experience character breakfasts with Dora the Explorer or SpongeBob SquarePants in the morning and poolside entertainment later in the afternoon. The mess hits the deck in Nickelodeon's interactive signature poolside game show where contestants can end up with a pie in the face, dance to music, play games and trivia, or even be on the receiving end of an iconic Nickelodeon sliming.
In addition, the Marco Island, Florida Resort & Spa offers the Nickelodeon Getaway package including two-night stay, SpongeBob SquarePants or Dora The Explorer sleepover kit with pillowcase and Nickelodeon-themed gifts for the kids, character breakfast for the family and more. As a special treat, Marco Island, Florida Resort guests will receive a complimentary photo with their favorite character to take home as a reminder of their Sunshine State vacation. The weekend package (Friday through Sunday) is available beginning June 12 and starts at $239.*
