Reunion Resorts Invites Vacationers to Fall Into Fun

ORLANDO, FL. October 18, 2017 – The amenity rich Reunion Resort, located in the Heart of
Orlando, invites friends and families to kick off their fall adventures with their Fall Into Fun
campaign. Bookable now until December 21, 2017, Reunion Resort is offering a Fourth Night
Free package for guests booking a three bedroom villa with rates starting at $179 per night*.
Guests are able to make the most of the extra night by exploring all the amenities Reunion
has to offer. Early birds can enjoy the morning dew while pedaling through the property grounds
on bike rentals or by participating in an invigorating yoga session. Late-risers chasing the sun can
explore the multiple on-property pools, splash bucket, lazy river and 150-ft flume slide. Golf
enthusiasts can also find the time for a “quick fix” golf program to practice their swing before their
scheduled tee-time at any of the three legendary courses.

Highlighting fall’s transformation, the spa offers exclusive seasonal experiences such as
the Resurfacing Stem Cell Facial Pumpkin Peel, promising a more radiant and clearer
complexion while indulging guests’ senses. Come evening, foodies are invited to unwind and get
a taste of the diverse culinary offerings at one of the resort’s four dining options, including Eleven,
which offers panoramic rooftop views of Orlando – accompanied by nightly fireworks from nearby
Walt Disney World.

Guests can participate in fall themed events like the resort’s Halloween Haunted River
Walk & Party, or play for a purpose in the Breast Cancer Awareness Golf Tournament benefitting
Florida Hospital and the American Cancer Society. Visitors are also encouraged to share their
experiences by tagging @ReunionResort on social media and entering the #FallIntoFun photo

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
