Our guests will enjoy the best of both worlds with the finest shopping and accommodations in all of Orlando.
Orlando, Fla. (Vocus) June 20, 2008
Imagine a family vacation in Orlando where mom can shop for luxurious fashions, Dad tees-off on a golf course just steps from the guest room, teenage daughter gets pampered with a manicure, and young children enjoy activities like building sandcastles and face painting – all in the same day?
The dream is a reality with an all-new vacation experience from The Mall at Millenia , Orlando’s world-class luxury shopping destination, in partnership with the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort. The “Family Fun for Everyone” package offers indulgences, relaxation and fun for everyone in the family, from youngsters and teens to parents and even grandparents.
“Just because you’re vacationing with the kids doesn’t mean you can’t return re-energized,” says Brenda Lounsberry, marketing director for The Mall at Millenia. “Today’s parents are seeking a different family vacation, one that nurtures them, strengthens family ties and offers memorable experiences for everyone in the family. This package delivers it all.”
The “Family Fun for Everyone” package combines a pampering day of shopping with exceptional resort accommodations, amenities and activities. This shopping experience includes complimentary valet service for mom at the mall, a personal shopping session at Gucci, complimentary Godiva chocolate and Starbucks beverage, as well as an appetizer at P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, a MAC make-over and a welcome gift from mall management.
And let’s not forget the incredible collection of stores: anchored by Central Florida’s only Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s, plus Macy’s, the Mall combines a dazzling selection of international retailers including Dior, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Burberry with the most in-demand U.S. retailers such as Tiffany & Co., Juicy Couture, Coach and Anthropologie.
Meanwhile, the rest of family can enjoy fun and adventure at the Four Diamond, Orlando World Center Marriott Resort. The family-friendly vacation destination is home to more than one-million gallons of liquid refreshment encompassing six diverse pools included the awe-inspiring signature lagoon-shaped pool featuring an incredible 106-foot waterslide and cascading waterfalls. The resort is also highlighted by an indoor pool, two children’s pools, a tranquil spa pool and six revitalizing whirlpool spas. Golf lovers can roll out of bed and play 18 holes before breakfast at the championship Hawk’s Landing Golf Club wrapping around the resort’s 200 masterfully designed landscaped acres, take in a golf lesson at the Bill Madonna Golf Academy at Hawk’s Landing Golf Club or visit the 10,000 square-foot spa and fitness center. Additional onsite resort amenities include tennis, basketball, volleyball, video arcade, children’s sand play area and award-winning dining with 10 tantalizing restaurants and lounges. When the day is through, families can retire to impeccable hideaways in one of the resort’s 2,000 guestrooms and suites, featuring Marriott Reviveâ bedding and oversized balconies.
“Families visiting Orlando in the summer will find it is the perfect destination for a rejuvenating getaway,” says Tim Pyne, director of sales and marketing at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort. “Our guests will enjoy the best of both worlds with the finest shopping and accommodations in all of Orlando.”
