Daycation: Day Passes to Central Florida Resorts from ResortPass

We live in a major tourist destination, with incredible attractions, state parks, natural springs and impressive resorts. Not to mention the amazing beaches just a short drive away. A great tool for enjoying Orlando is ResortPass, a website and booking platform that allows you to purchase day passes to local hotels.

These passes allow you to hang out and soak up the resort-style amenities for the full day without having to stay overnight. This is such a fun way to get out, enjoy some fresh air and rejuvenate with pool time.

If a daycation sounds like exactly what you need right now, check out these Central Florida resorts and hotels offering day passes and read on to learn more about ResortPass.
