The Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark is the only all-suite Holiday Inn Resort in Orlando. This newly refurbished property (formerly the Nickelodeon) is one of our newest MouseSavers Preferred Hotels. Located just off World Center Drive at 14500 Continental Gateway, it’s a quick and easy 5-minute drive to Walt Disney World and Disney Springs. In fact, it’s one of the closest off-property resorts in the area! The resort offers 777 family suites with bunk beds and king suites for family-style comfort and convenience. The brand new room decor is contemporary with bright splashes of color, and the resort overall is super kid-friendly. If you are considering a value or moderate room at Walt Disney World, check out how much you’ll save at this fun-filled resort!
The entire property underwent a $30 million top-to-bottom rebuild in 2016, and we think they have done an excellent job. While we normally shy away from exterior-corridor hotels, we found that the overall experience at this property, with its apartment-like suites, waterpark, separate pool options and a variety of food and entertainment options — as well as its terrific location close to the Walt Disney World theme parks, make it an excellent choice for families looking to make the most out of their “fun budget.”

Room configurations at the Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark are different than the typical suite arrangements you’ll find at most resorts. King suites and 2-bedroom suites with bunk beds have fully equipped kitchens that include a small two-burner stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishware and cookware, and a large dining area. Family suites with bunk beds have a kitchenette, with a microwave and mini-fridge; they do not have cookware. Family suites and 2-bedroom suites have one or two master bedrooms plus one bunk bed alcove. The alcove consists of a small room without an interior door that is across from the master bedroom. The alcove has shelves and cubby space in place of a closet, and the bunk beds consist of a twin size bed over a larger full-size bed.
The family suites with bunk beds are most common, and the 485 sq ft suites feature either a master bedroom with one king or one queen bed, a semi-private alcove with a twin over full-size bunk bed and a separate living room area with a queen sleeper sofa. Family suites include a kitchenette with a wet bar area, mini-fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker. Note: family suite kitchenettes are not stocked with plates, cutlery or glassware; you’ll want to bring some reusable plastic or paper supplies if you plan on doing a lot of in-room dining. There are 42″ HDTVs in the master bedroom and living room; a smaller HDTV is in the bunk bed alcove. All family suites with bunk beds sleep up to 6 people.
The king suites are 475 sq ft, and do not have the bunk bed alcove room. There is a master bedroom with a king size bed, and a fully equipped kitchen with a small two-burner stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, cookware, dishware and cutlery. The kitchen is open to the dining and living room area. One-bedroom king suites have a pull-out queen sized sofa in the living room area, and sleep up to 4 people.
The 2-bedroom suites with bunk beds are the largest at 950 sq ft, and are a combination of a king suite and a family suite with bunk beds. Two-bedroom suites include two master bedrooms, each with a king size bed, as well as one semi-private alcove room with a twin over full-size bunk bed. The fully equipped kitchen includes a small two-burner stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, cookware, dishware and cutlery. Two-bedroom suites have a large separate dining area in addition to a spacious living room with a queen sleeper sofa. These suites sleep up to 8 people.
All suites include high speed Wi-Fi, 42-inch HDTVs with premium cable channels, Bath & Body Works toiletries, mini-fridge/refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, hair dryer and iron and ironing board. All suites also have numerous plug-in outlets, sleeper sofas, a dining area and work desk. Unlike suites at other hotel properties, the living / dining room area is not carpeted; simulated wood flooring with decorative rugs give the space a clean, contemporary feel. The bedrooms are carpeted, and have ceiling fans. While the family suites with bunk beds and king suites suites don’t feel overly large, they are very comfortable and efficient, and we believe the room rates are excellent for what you get.
This Holiday Inn Resort has two pool and suite tower areas. Towers numbered 6 through 14 surround the Lagoon Pool with the resort’s waterpark and poolside entertainment. This area is a terrific plus if you have kids or want to be near the fun and action. Towers numbered 1 through 5 surround the Oasis Pool, an adult-only swimming pool with lounge areas. Guests must be 18 years old and over to use the Oasis pool. It’s a 2-3 minute walk between the two tower areas.
The Marketplace is the resort’s main dining and activity mall, and is situated between the two tower areas. The Marketplace hosts The Lakeside Cafe, the resort’s main restaurant, which serves an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, and is open for breakfast from 6 am – 10:30 am, and for dinner from 5 pm – 11 pm. Kids age 12 and under eat FREE from the kid’s menu when accompanied by a paying adult (one child per adult). For an additional $2, kids 12 and under can upgrade their breakfast to the breakfast buffet. Inside the Marketplace you’ll also find a food court that includes Cravings where you can get Starbucks Coffee, bakery items and Hershey’s Hand Dipped Ice Cream, Antonio’s Pizzeria and Stackers Deli, which serves an assortment of sandwiches and salads. While the kids play, adults can relax in the Hideaway Lounge where you can catch a game on one of several TV’s while enjoying a drink and a snack or quick bite. Room service is also available from 6 am – 10:30 am and 5 pm – 11 pm.
Poolside dining is available at The Lagoon Bar and Grill located near the Lagoon Waterpark pool. Soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, burgers, sandwiches, salads and more are available from noon to 5 pm. Adult beverages, soft drinks and select food offerings are also available poolside at the Oasis Bar and Grill during evening hours.
You’ll find lots of entertainment for the whole family in The Marketplace, including the Batman Laser Challenge, a 4-D Theater Experience, the Family Rivals show and karaoke in the Celebration Theater, and a 3,000 sq ft gaming arcade including video games, air hockey and more. There is a charge of $7.95 + tax for the Batman Laser Challenge and $7.95 + tax per person for the 4-D Experience; alternatively, an unlimited play and watch wristband is available for $19.95 per person.

There is a fee of $30/day per room resort fee. The resort fee covers use of the waterpark, scheduled bus transportation to the four Walt Disney World theme parks, Universal Orlando and Seaworld Orlando; live shows and entertainment; wireless internet in guest suites and throughout the resort and unlimited local telephone calls. The resort has an additional charge of $10 for each adult above two per room.
Having a rental car is a good idea when staying at Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark. The resort does have scheduled shuttle service to the parks, but if you want to eat out or need to run an errand, you will want your own car. The resort is not within walking distance of restaurants or shopping off of the resort grounds. The resort charges an additional parking fee of $12/daily for the first vehicle and $17/daily for additional vehicles.
We like that this resort offers tons of fun and entertainment for both kids and adults, and you could easily spend a day effortlessly hanging out and enjoying the Lagoon Waterpark, immersing yourself in the huge arcade, or having some adult quiet time lounging at the Oasis pool. There is much more on-site entertainment for children and families than you’d get at a typical hotel, and the suites give you room to spread out and have a bit of private space. Situated super close to the Walt Disney World parks, but off the beaten track, the resort is its own fun oasis.
