Orlando World Center Marriott Resort 
    8701 World Center Drive | 407-239-4200 | 8 a.m. - 11 p.m.
    The World Center Marriott packs on the thrills at its pools, with two winding, 200-foot water slides, a 90-foot super fast speed slide, and a splash zone for the kids. But if the thought of hurtling full-speed into a body of water makes you a little queasy, there’s plenty of opportunities for relaxing, stationary fun at the hotel’s oasis pool and hot tub grotto nestled under a rocky waterfall. While the pools close at 11 p.m., don’t wait until the last minute to take that final water slide ride, as they usually close an hour earlier. Only guests staying at the resort and their visitors are allowed to use the pools and slides.
