fitness centers—it's truly a well-rounded community. It's very easy to come to Reunion and stay on the property for your entire visit. There is an assortment of activities scheduled daily for kids and teens. From fitness classes to teen socials—spike ball competitions, and sand volleyball games—hosted at the water park, to other fun activities like Mermaid Class, where you learn how to swim like a mermaid. And for the adults, make sure to catch the Poolside Happy Hour at The Cove, Sunrise Mimosas on Sundays, or start your day with a Yoga class, and if you are feeling competitive maybe enter the putting contest. However, this is Orlando, and it's not uncommon for families to visit Disney World, which is only a short drive away. Staying at Reunion is convenient, especially with their delectable restaurant options: Sushi Bar, Clubhouse, Forte, and Eleven. The Sushi Bar, in the lobby of the Reunion Grande, is a great place to grab a cocktail or a light snack before dinner, and people watch.

Finally, there is no better place to grab a steak than at Eleven on the rooftop of the Reunion Grande. Featuring indoor and outdoor seating, dine on the balcony for a view of Orlando's numerous nightly fireworks displays. Much more than just a nice view, Eleven has mastered the art of cooking steak —no sauces required for these premium cuts. Many of Reunion's guests—first- timers and lifers alike—come for the golfing.
