Go ahead — dive into Orlando and make a splash with the entire family.

Bask in the sun and have a swimmingly good time with this week's escape to the Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando.

Jump in head first with a four-night stay for two adults and two children ($239) at the recently-renovated resort, situated on International Drive and smack-dab in the heart of the city's top attractions. Accommodations feature a mini-refrigerator, microwave, pillow-top mattresses, wi-fi and parking.

Sip your two welcome drinks, take a dip in one of the three pools and get ready to submerge yourself in the surrounding entertainment.

In the morning, plunge into breakfast at the Plaza Garden Restaurant, where the kids will get a kick out of the Mickey Mouse pancakes and you will enjoy the two-for-one discount. Afterward, hop aboard the included shuttle to nearby theme parks including Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Aquatica. A visit to Gatorland, the "Alligator Capital of the World", is also a must with your four included tickets.

"In addition to the animal exhibits, Gator Jumparoo, a signature show since the park opened in 1949, and Gator Wrestlin' are worth a look," Frommer's says. "Other options include a train ride, a children's water playground and an aviary."

If you need a break from the crowds and the theme parks, float to nearby shops and restaurants to use your VIP discount book. Then backstroke back to the Plaza Garden Restaurant at the inn to use your included discount for dinner, followed by dessert at the ice cream bar.

Take an affordable trip to Orlando that doesn't require any back flips — unless your name is Greg Louganis, of course.
