If you’re looking to book your next holiday to
Universal Orlando Resort then you may be considering staying outside of the parks, but in our
opinion there is no better way to experience Universal than taking your
trip to the next level and staying in a Universal Orlando Resort hotel.
Below we have listed some of our highlights that you can expect to
experience whilst staying at a Universal Hotel.
Unlimited FREE Universal Express Access
When visiting Universal Orlando Resort one of the main highlights is
undoubtedly the rides available for you to experience. Using a Universal
Express Unlimited pass allows you to skip the regular line and ride as much
as you wish during your visit to Universal Orlando.
These passes can be used on most attractions at either Universal Studios
Florida or Universal’s Islands of Adventure; so whether or not you’re
looking for a rip-roaring rush on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit or you want
to feel the tremendous power of The Incredible Hulk Coaster these passes
are the best way to do so. Universal Express Unlimited passes are included
in your trip when staying at 3 of Universal Orlando's hotels -
Loews Portofino Bay Hotel,
Hard Rock Hotel, and
Loews Royal Pacific Resort.
When staying at any of Universal Orlando Resort’s hotels you can expect
easy transportation between the parks with some hotels even being walking
distance from the parks. If your hotel isn’t quite walking distance from
the parks then you have the option of a free shuttle bus or you can even
take a water-taxi to and from the attractions, your hotel and even
Universal CityWalk; allowing you to make the most of your time.
Early Park Admission
Speaking of making the most of your lie-ins, Universal Orlando Hotel guests
have the option of skipping their lie-ins and visiting the parks up to an
hour before they open to the general public. Some of the parks key
attractions are also available to ride during these times including Harry
Potter and the Escape from Gringotts at Universal Studios Florida &
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal’s Island of Adventure.
The best place to use the early park access is Universal’s Volcano Bay
where all rides, slides & attractions are available at the earlier time
and when staying at Universal’s Aventura Hotel the park is only a short
Free delivery of souvenirs
When you shop or win merchandise during your stay at Universal Orlando
Resort you won’t have to worry about carrying it around the park for the
rest of the day as they offer to hold any shopping you do for you at the
park entrance until you are ready to leave. You can also have your shopping
delivered straight to your hotel room, just simply let the cashier know
your hotel and room number and they will deliver your items free of charge.
Much like the parks you’ll be visiting every one of the hotels you can stay
at whilst visiting Universal Orlando Resort has a unique look and feel for
you to experience. The choice is yours when picking a Universal Orlando
Hotel; live like a rockstar at the
Hard Rock Hotel or unwind in a Caribbean island retreat at
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. If you’re looking for a hotel experience on more of a budget then you can
enjoy a modern style at
Universal’s Aventura Hotel
or you can experience an affordable surf-style stay at the new
Universal Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites. With so many options to choose from we’re sure that you’ll definitely
enjoy your stay at a Universal Orlando Hotel.
When staying at a Universal Orlando Hotel you can also expect to experience
some of the best entertainment that Orlando has to offer. The obvious place
to start then talking about evening entertainment is CityWalk which is home
to the best bars and nightlife in Orlando, you can even catch a show and
experience the world famous
Blue Man Group. Many people aren’t aware that the hotels themselves offer a number of
themed entertainment experiences including the
Velvet Sessions at the Hard Rock Hotel where you can expect live music from some legendary
artists. If you’re looking for entertainment while you eat then we
recommend the Caribbean Carnaval dinner show at Loews Sapphire Falls
