The summer heat awaits just around the corner. While you may have access to a refreshing pool, sometimes it’s more fun to grab your honey and relax in the lap of luxury without spending a fortune. Believe it or not, there are several Orlando resorts with summer bucket-list worthy Orlando resort pools where locals are welcome to play like a tourist for the day. While there aren't any resorts offering locals completely free access to their pools for the day (we wish!), booking a spa treatment or day pass is a great way to enjoy some of Orlando's most luxurious resort pools.
We've put together a list of Orlando resort pools offering spa and day pass packages that allow you to take advantage of resort amenities without booking an overnight stay. And if you'd like a pool closer to the beach – we got you! Check out Tampa Bay resort pools you can dip into!
