I recently spent a weekend at Westgate Town Center in Kissimmee, Florida. With the variety of activities and things to do at and around the resort, a weekend is just not enough, so I have narrowed it down to my Top Five.
1. Fuel Up with Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Fuel up at Drafts Sports Bar and Grill, which features a wonderful breakfast buffet each morning. I’ve never been much of a buffet person, but this is not your average buffet. It includes eggs, potatoes, sausage, biscuits and gravy, French toast, yogurt, seasonal fruit and more, plus coffee and juice and all for less than $12 per person. It was the fuel I needed for the busy day ahead.
2. Play Outdoors
Westgate Town Center has everything from mini-golf to bike rentals to paddle boats and swan boats. First up, a bike ride. The hour long rental was the perfect way to explore the beautiful resort. We rode around through the town center all the way to the vacation villas, made a stop at Joe’s Marketplace & Deli for some water, and to cool off a bit, and back around the resort again. We rode around until we could count all 14 pools, but that task was a little more difficult than we thought.
Following the bike ride, we decided to rest a bit before our next excursion. It was nice to just sit and people watch for a bit.
But I wasn’t about to waste too much time because we had a lot to do.
Next up…Swan Boats on Swan Lake.
By the end of the swan boat adventure, our legs were feeling a bit like jelly, so it was time to head inside for some indoor activities.
I got a little distracted watching Frozen, as other 5 and 6 year olds joined me.
The Swan Lake Activities Center was playing Frozen on loop the entire weekend. I didn’t mind at all hanging with the 5 and 6 year olds singing “Let It Go.”
3. Release Your Inner Artist
My fiancé and I signed up for candle making. You begin with a blank canvas and about a dozen different paint colors and the activities staff lets you loose to create a work of art, even down to the color of the wax. Since it was Mother’s Day weekend, I decided to design a gift for my mom, my fiancé decided to do the same.
Adam’s lovely candle is on the left, I giggle every time I see it. What is it?? No one knows! But his mom loved it. Mine isn’t much better; my artistry does not extend to paints. We had a great time and laughed a lot. I would love to go back and make more candles.
I’ll definitely be back when the water park opens up, so I can make more candles then 🙂
4. Take a Bath
When your bathtub is the size of a small swimming pool and lights up like a disco, how could you not take a bath?
That’s right, when you are on vacation the number one priority should be to relax and spend quality time with the ones you love. Westgate Town Center is the perfect relaxation spot. With 14 pools, spacious rooms and a variety of resort activities, just let everything go and enjoy the moment.

It’s hard to top anything in Dubai, I would assume. I’ve never been but I would like to one day.
