To start with, did you know that Universal Orlando has 4 resort hotels on property  and will be adding a 5th during the summer of 2016?  That’s right, you can enjoy fabulous
hotels and dining plus have the convenience of being close to the
theme parks.  With choices ranging from the moderate on price but max on style Cabana Bay Beach Resort to the Deluxe resorts including Leows Royal Pacific Resort, the Hard Rock Hotel, and Leows Portofino
Bay Hotel, you’re sure to find the perfect spot for you and your family.  And in 2016 you can add Leows Sapphire Falls Resort to your list of choices.  AND the best part about staying at a Universal hotel is the automatic “fastpass” to every attraction that resort stayers get in the amusement parks!

Now to the parks!  The most obvious is the Universal Studios theme park.  With attractions ranging from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley to Transformers – The Ride to Fievel’s Playground, you’ll find attractions to excite and thrill everyone in the family.  Then you can hop on over to Universal’s Islands of Adventure to enjoy attractions such as Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade (you can travel park to park between Harry Potter attractions via the Hogwarts Express), The Incredible Hulk Coaster, and Camp Jurrassic.  And coming summer of 2016, you can add Skull Island: Reign of King Kong to your list of ‘must visit’ attractions.  Once again, there’s something for everyone at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. islands-adventure

Plus don’t forget all the fun to be had at Universal’s City Walk.  With amazing shopping, dining, night clubs, shows, and a movie theater, you’re going to find yourself wanting to spend plenty of time here, too.

And I have another exciting surprise for you!  In 2017, Universal Orlando will be opening a 3rd theme park for your vacation enjoyment!  Volcano Bay promises to “change the perception of water theme parks.” Volcano Bay Located just south of Cabana Bay Beach Resort, it will feature radically innovative
attractions as well as peaceful moments that will add extra sparkle and excitement to your experience at Universal Orlando.

Whew!  That’s a lot of excitement to put in to one blog.  And I didn’t even begin to go into detail about the resorts or parks.  But don’t worry, our travel pixies are excited to share all their Universal knowledge with you and help you plan a vacation you will never forget!  So don’t waste time just pondering all that Universal has to offer.  Get with us now so you can play stress free later.  Happy Travels!
