ORLANDO, Fla. - This holiday season, travelers are invited to make Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek a home away from home with a series of special activities, themed menus and festive events offered from Thanksgiving through New Year's Eve.

Beginning over Thanksgiving weekend, guests can take part in an array of activities, including "dive-in" holiday movies at the pool or Twilight Golf sessions at the adjacent Waldorf Astoria Golf Club.  Programming continues into December with holiday-themed poolside activities, a family golf clinic and winter wonderland photos with Santa. The season culminates with a New Year's celebration at Zeta Bar's "Bubble Lounge" party, complete with DJ, dancing and a selection of champagnes before a celebratory fireworks show at midnight.

For holiday dining, Thanksgiving menus will be offered at Harvest Bistro and La Luce. Paying homage to its Italian roots, La Luce will also offer the traditional Feast of Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day, Harvest Bistro will serve a holiday buffet featuring pasta and carving stations in addition to an assortment of soups, salads and delectable entrees.

"The holiday season is a time for celebrating family, friends and community," said Glen Winsor, hotel manager of Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. "We hope our holiday programming can inspire magical memories and new traditions that guests will remember for years to come."

Incorporating a charitable component to the holiday program, Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek is partnering with Give Kids The World, a nonprofit organization that fulfills wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. When guests purchase a photo with Santa, 100 percent of proceeds benefit Give Kids The World, allowing families to give back after capturing a magical holiday moment.

Beyond the specialty holiday programming, Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek offers seasonally-inspired spa treatments at the Waldorf Astoria Spa also located on property, festive cocktails at MYTH Bar and Zeta Bar, and fresh-baked pastries at the MUSE lobby sweet shop.  Guests can also enjoy hotel amenities including two pool complexes and a three-acre lazy river, private poolside cabanas, twelve dining outlets and the 18-hole Rees Jones-designed golf course.

Conveniently located near the Walt Disney World® Resort, guests can take advantage of complimentary transportation to all Disney theme parks for holiday favorites including Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom® and Holidays Around the World at Epcot®. For last-minute holiday shopping, the hotel is minutes from The Mall at Millennia, featuring Orlando's largest collection of upscale shops and department stores.
