When kids become teenagers, they want their independence. And yet, parents know the time is short until their children are on their own, and they want to spend time with them. A road trip to Encore Resort at Reunion is the perfect way for families with teens to vacation in harmony and give everyone the gift of memories they will talk about for years to come.
With our curated resort residences that feature 4 to 13 bedrooms, Encore Resort offers families enough space to give teens their privacy and to allow them to interact with the family. Plus, there’s no additional cost to let your teen bring a friend to hang out with, and there is plenty to do.
For many, an ideal day is enjoying time on the water. One fun way to do that is for your family to establish a home base near our resort-style pool. This can either be on a group of our comfortable lounge chairs or, for a splurge, in one of our cabanas. The cabanas give guests shade from the hot Florida sun with chairs and towels, a refrigerator full of bottled water and sodas, a food and beverage credit, and an attendant to wait on you. Parents can enjoy their time together while teens can come and go as they please, giving them the freedom they crave. And the adults can truly relax, knowing their kids are safe in our private Water Park and surrounding areas.
The Water Park at Encore Resort is the ultimate in wet and wild fun! Our Water Park spans 10 acres and has something for everyone. Thrill-seekers will enjoy our three water rides — WaveRacer, Stormchaser, and Tsunami — that plummet off our 60-foot tower. Our Surfing Safari Kids’ Splash Area is great for younger siblings. There’s also a huge swimming pool, which is the home to a host of daily activities, such as a music trivia challenge and tie-dying T-shirts.
Want to take a break from the water? Teens can visit our indoor arcade or play outdoor games, such as a giant chessboard, cornhole and ping pong, inside our gated water park area.
With their parents’ permission, teens can charge lunch at The Bis. There are plenty of kid favorites — sandwiches, pizzas, salads and burgers — plus many flavors of lemonade and smoothies. They can even order a tropical mocktail (cocktail without alcohol)! We serve at the order window, at your chair or lounger, and under the shade sails.
For those interested in sports and exercise, Encore Resort has quite a few opportunities to get moving. Teens may want to check out our recreation facilities: two tennis courts, two basketball courts, three volleyball courts, and a full soccer field. We have daily challenges and tournaments, which are a great way to meet and make friends. Our Fitness Center inside the clubhouse offers:
- All-in-One Machines
- Free Weights
- Stationary Bikes
We even have aqua fitness classes twice a week in our beautiful pool before the Water Park opens. These classes can range from toning to Zumba to even yoga, all in the water. Teens can also try cruising the property on two-wheeled bicycles or four-wheeled Surrey bikes!
After everyone has worked up an appetite, come back together for a family dinner at your residence. You can grill favorite foods by your private pool and take a soak in the jacuzzi. Keep the grill going for toasting marshmallows and making s’mores for dessert. Afterward, head inside where everyone can sprawl comfortably for a movie night — if they can stay awake after such an amazing day!
