LET US BE THE FONDEST PART OF THEIR ORLANDO MEMORIES.
As Jean-Michel Cousteau says, all kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’ Our Orlando family resort’s experiences for kids tap into that innate curiosity by introducing our youngest guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of our Orlando resort location. Immersive and adventurous, Ritz Kids experiences provide your child with enthralling activities to reward their interest in the beauty and workings of the world we live in. With a diverse collection of activities based on the four pillars of the program – water, land, environmental responsibility and culture – kids are swept away by everything from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food.

Ritz Kids Badge Program
The new Ritz Kids Badge Program encourages our youngest guests to celebrate their innate curiosity and sense of adventure. This is an exciting way for kids to fully immerse themselves in the many natural and cultural wonders of our comprehensive resort.
Here’s how it works:
The Ritz Kids Badge Program is open to children of hotel guests who are ages 4 to 12.
Lil’ Rangers are invited to make their way through 24 challenges as detailed in their booklet.
Once the child has met the requirements of each specific challenge, they are eligible to collect a “button” for that successfully completed activity.
After 12 “buttons”, a child receives a Ritz-Carlton plush lion and certificate.
After 24 “buttons”, the child becomes our “Honorary General Manager for a Day” which includes a customary jacket, nametag, pin, ID, and lunch with the General Manager, Chef, or Hotel Manager.
12 of the challenges occur every day, while 12 are exclusive and only awarded seasonally.
