Ritz Kids at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes offers children the opportunity to become fully immersed in Florida’s rich history and biodiversity. The journey starts at check-in, when little ones begin their quest to learn more about the unexpected history of central Florida and the footprints it has left on the region. This new Ritz Kids component furthers the brand’s commitment to Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, which invites little ones to discover adventure and exploration through four pillars: water, land, environmental responsibility and culture. Positioned at the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, the resort provides families the chance to experience a taste of Old Florida. Orlando may have evolved into a bustling metropolis, but the Everglades remain an unparalleled landscape and the “largest subtropical wilderness” in the United States.
