We vacation here every single year as a family--there is something for everyone! Between the pools and the lazy river, we swim every day. We attend at least one dive-in movie at the pool during the week. We always participate in a few of the paid extras, usually Bingo and the scavenger hunt (champions this year!). One tip: we prefer...
