Grande Lakes Orlando Celebrates The Summer In Style With The Arrival Of “Glo Summer Nights”
Grande Lakes Orlando, the 500-acre luxury resort destination in the headwaters of the Florida Everglades anchored by The Ritz-Carlton Orlando and JW Marriott Orlando, invites guests to celebrate the summer in style with the introduction of “GLO Summer Nights,” an exhilarating seasonal celebration in honor of the resort’s 20th anniversary.
Boasting signature weekly fireworks displays in addition to spectacular glow-charged nights at the recently debuted Grande Lakes Waterpark, alongside an abundance of activations fit for every traveler, Grande Lakes Orlando has crafted a truly unforgettable summer experience all season long.
GLO Summer Saturdays
Throughout the summer, Grande Lakes Orlando will play host to an array of experiences perfect for families and guests of all ages including dazzling fireworks displays that will take center stage every Saturday evening. After a day spent exploring the Everglades or enjoying the Grande Lakes Waterpark, resort guests can look up from their balconies, lounge chairs, or poolside cabanas for an intimate yet larger-than-life fireworks show. Boasting a masterful explosion of color and light in the sky each week from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with additional special shows occurring over holiday weekends, these grand fireworks displays are complimentary for overnight guests of both hotels. Upgrade options are available that include food and beverage service at both hotels and a private in-room viewing package at The Ritz-Carlton, designed with families in mind.
After the sun goes down on GLO Summer Saturday nights between 7-10pm, guests can find their way to the illuminated Grande Lakes Waterpark and pool for an evening of illuminated fun. Float through the winding lazy river in glow-in-the-dark tubes, meander in the glittering pool lit with neon lights, and enjoy live DJ performances.
Younger guests will find no shortage of fun-filled activities from the array of classic kid-friendly summer activations, including waterproof face painting, caricatures, outdoor games and balloon animals. Meanwhile, adults can indulge in activities including lakeside mixology courses, a decadent dessert and champagne trolley and Fire & Ice, a live ice carving by the resort’s U.S. Olympic Champion Carver, Victor Dagatan and a mesmerizing fire dancing performance, along with numerous opportunities to enjoy live music.
