Holidays to Universal Orlando Resort aren't just holidays, they're adventures. In the space of a single day you can be a superhero, a movie star, and a wizard.
Universal Orlando Resort brings the big screen to life at its theme parks, and adds a dose of tropical fun at its water theme park. The trio of parks, and accompanying themed hotels, are set right in the heart of Orlando, close to restaurant-and-bar-filled International Drive.
There are three major players in Universal’s park portfolio. Two of them – Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure – deal in Hollywood-inspired attractions. At Universal Studios Florida, you can fight alongside Optimus Prime on Transformers: The Ride-3D, or join Gru and his helpers in Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. Experience the magic of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Diagon Alley™, and catch the Hogwarts™ Express to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Hogsmeade™, across at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
Universal’s Volcano Bay brings a taste of the Pacific to the Sunshine State. It’s the latest park to open its doors, and brings to life the story of ancient islanders known as the Waturi. Slides pour out from the Krakatau Volcano in the centre of the park, and waves splash against tropical Waturi Beach at its base. Tot Tiki Reef is great for smaller swimmers, while Ko’okiri Body Plunge sends you on a 125 foot, near-vertical drop.
Universal CityWalk is like a mini city in its own right. Tuck in to sweet treats at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savoury Feast Kitchen, or sample Burgushi® – a burger and sushi hybrid – at The Cowfish®. You can even catch the latest Hollywood blockbuster at Universal Cinemark.
