Things to do near the Encore Club

Good times are guaranteed at the Encore Club in Florida. But when the kids learn how much there is to do nearby, they won’t mind leaving the resort’s splash pools and playgrounds behind – for a while, anyway.

The resort is 5 miles from Walt Disney World Resort, and just a short drive from some of the USA’s best and most beautiful water parks. Pick a luxury vacation rental here and you’ll also have a huge range of shops, restaurants, and family friendly attractions at your fingertips. The only tricky thing is deciding what to do first.

Things to do near the Encore Club

Hit the water parks

There’s a whole lot of laughs to be had at the Encore Club’s AquaPark but for a change of scenery you might want to check out one of the area’s other water-based attractions.

Florida is home to some of the wildest water parks on Earth, including Disney’s ski-themed Blizzard Beach, whose lightning-fast slides are the stuff of legend. The Legoland Water Park, home to a Lego-edged wave pool and a build-your-own-raft facility, is perfect for families with young kids.

Orlando's best rollercoasters

Test your nerve on Orlando’s best rides

Colorful parades feature high up on most to-do lists, but there’s a lot more to Disney World than meeting Mickey at the Magic Kingdom. Theme parks like Epcot, Hollywood Studios and the Animal Kingdom are all easy to visit on day trips from the Encore Club.

Beyond Disney, the magic doesn’t end. Check out the movie-themed rides and attractions at Universal Studios, or clamber aboard the nerve-jangling rollercoasters at the Islands of Adventure. Doctor Doom’s Fearfall is not for the faint hearted; it pushes you 200 ft into the sky with more thrust than a 747’s jet engine – and more acceleration than a space shuttle.

Check out the restaurants near the Encore Club

The fine-dining scene in Orlando is super diverse, with inventive chefs serving delectable dishes from every corner of the globe. Casual, family focused places are easy to find, whether you’re visiting a water park or exploring downtown Orlando.

You don’t even have to leave the Encore Club to find delicious food. Our dining guide has more details on eating there and at nearby Reunion Resort.

Shopping in Orlando

Shop ‘til you drop

Orlando is paradise for shoppers, thanks to the huge selection of boutiques, malls and fashion outlets. Try the Mall at Millenia, an upscale shopping destination with stores by Gucci, Prada, Versace and Chanel, or head to the Florida Mall for casual shopping and dining.

Get help with attraction tickets

Whether you want to visit a single theme park or check out 7 of the big ones during a week’s vacation, our dedicated concierge team can help you find the perfect tickets. Our concierge team can also arrange for a private chef to prepare meals in your vacation rental, either on a daily basis or as a one-off treat.
