Other Things to Do
Who needs a pool when there are so many options on Resort Pass in Orlando? If your dad loves to lay out in the sun, take him to one of the resort pools in Orlando for the day and let him relax and enjoy the pool bar. If your dad is more adventurous, choose a resorts with a water park feature.
Resort Pass allows you to enjoy the pool without having to stay overnight. Some fantastic options in Orlando include the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, Omni Orlando Resort, Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, and Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress.
If your dad is the ultimate thrill-seeker, you need to take him to the Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park. Located in Kissimmee just south of Orlando, this course has 97 aerial challenges and two giant zip lines for those brave enough to take on the challenge.
