W

elcome to Orlando! Thank you for making the trip to the City Beautiful. We appreciate you and we've been waiting for you! Orlando is located in the center of the state of Florida, and here you will find not only the magic, adventure and technology of our theme parks, but also, the wonders of our other parks - the Florida State Parks. Lakes, springs, beaches and wildlife will allow you to explore, contemplate and enjoy all our beauty. We are now in the locals' favorite season. The endless summer continues, but the temperatures are cooler and there is energy all around, giving way to beautiful sunsets and more time outdoors. Whether you enjoy or would like to try kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, parasailing or wave running, it is all within your reach and about 90 minutes from your hotel. If you'd prefer to take relaxing walks along the beach or go on a boat to see wild dolphins, we have that too! On the Atlantic coast, in under just one hour you have Cocoa Beach, The Saint John’s River Lagoon, Jetty Park and the home base for surfers. If you head to The Gulf of Mexico, about 90 minutes by car, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Honeymoon Island and Tarpon Springs will dazzle you with their white sandy beaches, blue skies and phenomenal coast.

Yours in hospitality, Nekane Alvarez CFCA President, Les Clefs d’Or, USA

We know you could be anywhere, but you chose Orlando, and we thank you! Please stop by your concierge desk. We'd love to share our favorite natural spots and tips with you.

Pair a blue reef margarita with a signature entrée at Uno’s.

Whether you’re looking to liven up happy hour or satisfy a week-night steak craving with your crew, come on down to Outback. They are open for lunch and dinner or to-go options with curbside takeaway or delivery. Uno Pizzeria & Grill draws its identity and inspiration from the artisan heritage of the original Pizzeria Uno in Chicago, IL. Each restaurant still makes their deep-dish pizza dough fresh every morning, and their Chicago Thin Crust Pizza is jam-packed with bold flavors. Today, they are as passionate about craft beer as they are pizza. Nothing goes better together than pizza and beer. Choosing the right brew for your pie can help bring out the flavor, dial up the bold or bitter flavors, or offset the heat in a spicy pie. Uno’s put their chefs & bartenders in the same room to pair pizzas with the perfect craft beer. Uno’s is way deeper than pizza, you might also want to try one of their signature entrees, like chicken Spinoccoli pasta with a blue reef margarita. Ask your server for suggestions. Ready for an enjoyable family-friendly night out? Drafts Sports Bar & Grill has everything you need for an exciting evening with your loved ones!

Pair a gourmet burger with a cold beer at Drafts Sports Bar & Grill.

With three locations in the resort area, Black Angus Steakhouse is always a great choice for dinner and drinks.

Pair your food with a handcrafted cocktail from the bar for a truly memorable date night! Sharing dinner and drinks are a time made to be with those you love.

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. Hotel rooms are tiny. Cramped. Space-challenged, if we’re being diplomatic. There — someone had to say it. And someone had to do something about it. That’s where we come in. This is not a hotel room. This is not a motel room. This is a super-affordable Condo Direct vacation rental, and you need to make it the home base for your next Orlando vacation. Think full kitchen. Think family room to sprawl out with the kids. And think bedrooms — yes, plural — when you need your space, away from the kids. Come to think of it, most Condo Direct vacation rentals have enough room to accommodate an elephant. So pack a pachyderm, and we’ll see you in Orlando.

Go to condodirect.com and enter the coupon code iloveorlando for a 10% discount on all resort bookings. Or call 888-988-8222.

Subject to availability. Certain terms and conditions apply. Condo Direct is operated by Worldwide Vacation & Travel, Inc.

rom its very inception, Westgate Resorts has been dedicated to not just giving back to the community, but to also helping it thrive and prosper. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, every business, family and individual suffered setbacks and losses in one way or another. But determined to write its own future, Westgate Resorts rose to the challenge through innovation and collaboration. Enter WestgateCARES, a uniquely crafted, and all-encompassing program designed to develop and enhance the health and safety processes and procedures of its resort properties and communities. Within days of the pandemic’s outbreak, Westgate organized a team of professionals dedicated to ensuring the well-being of each of its Guests, Owners, Team Members and resort communities. While the priority of WestgateCARES is to provide the finest guest experience in the safest resort environment possible, its second goal is to help other businesses achieve and provide those same heath standards to battle the COVID-19 pandemic together.  I LOVE ORLANDO

“From day one of this crisis, every decision Westgate Resorts made was based on one simple premise: How to best protect our Guests, Team Members and the local community,” said Mark Waltrip, Chief Operating Officer of Westgate Resorts. “Just as important, we recognize that many businesses may not possess Westgate’s extensive resources to develop such comprehensive procedures. Therefore, it is our hope that sharing this vital information will help everyone reopen safely and reduce the spread of this terrible pandemic.” The program’s enhanced safety measures include advanced cleaning procedures, strict personal hygiene protocols and a long list of specific operating procedures aimed at mitigating the virus's risk. Westgate also

made its standard operating procedures and policies publicly available to help other businesses and entrepreneurs in crafting their own individualized procedures. In addition, as states began sheltering in place, Westgate turned its attention to those in the community who were most at need, strengthening the bond with its more than 74 nonprofit partners across the United States. Food donations, totaling tens of thousands of dollars, continue weekly to various nonprofits such as United Against Poverty Orlando, the Christian Center of Park City and dozens of similar organizations supplying essential meals and care kits to families in need.

Food Donations

Following the CDC’s recommendations, WestgateCARES then implemented a unique program to pay its own employees and supply them with the necessary materials to sew masks from the safety of their homes. To date, more than 6,500 masks, created by Westgate Team Members, have been donated to nonprofit organizations and hospitals throughout the country. “At Westgate, we know we are only as strong as we are united, and we intend to make it through this together,” said Waltrip.
