Why I LOVE Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando Resort offers a truly magical vacation experience for visitors of all ages. Whether you’re a thrill-seeker looking for the latest and greatest roller coasters, a Harry Potter fan eager to explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, or a family with littles looking for age-appropriate attractions, Universal Orlando has something for everyone.

One of the highlights of a Universal Orlando vacation is the ability to experience some of the most popular movies and TV shows of all time in an entirely new way. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, for example, immerses guests in the world of Harry Potter, complete with authentic shops, restaurants, and rides that make you feel like you’re actually in the films. Similarly, the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride is an incredible experience that combines cutting-edge technology with a thrilling story to transport you right into the heart of Hogwarts.

In addition to the Harry Potter-themed attractions, Universal Orlando also features a variety of other rides and attractions that are sure to delight visitors. From the high-speed thrills of the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster to the family-friendly fun found in Seuss Landing, Universal Orlando appeals to all ages. Additionally, the resort is also home to a wide variety of shows, including live performances by some of your favorite characters, such as the Blues Brothers, Marilyn and the Diamond Bellas, and Beat Builders. And the character appearances can’t be beat!

While in Universal Studios Florida, make sure you visit the Tribute Store. It’s four themed rooms, the décor changes for the season, and is always a fun place to explore, shop, and try tasty treats.

Another great aspect of a Universal Orlando vacation is the opportunity to stay at one of the resort’s on-site hotels. These hotels offer a wide range of amenities, including early park admission, complimentary transportation to the parks, and special theme park benefits. Whether you’re looking for a luxurious stay or a more budget-friendly option, there is a hotel that will suit your needs.

Once again we stayed at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel – my personal favorite Universal resort. One of the three Premier Resorts on property, we received complimentary Unlimited Express Passes with our stay. You can read an earlier review here.

I just adore the music from Musica della Notte that fills the Harbor Piazza in the evenings. In my opinion, this is a highly underrated experience that not enough resort guests take advantage of!

Pro-tip: If the kiddos are old enough to stay in the room alone, order in for them, so that you and your partner can enjoy a romantic dinner on the piazza.

Finally, do not miss a visit to Volcano Bay – Universal’s themed and immersive water park! No matter the time of year, it is a must for us!

During our Thanksgiving week visit, it stormed the entire time! Check back for my top tips about navigating a vacation when Mother Nature refuses to cooperate.
