I just returned from Universal Orlando Resort for a special Agent Training Programing. I learned so much about the resorts, both theme parks, Citywalk, attractions and all of the annual special events that take place at Universal Orlando Resort. There are several reasons why I love Universal as a family destination and I want to share my most favorite reasons why Universal is an amazing vacation destination.
Universal Orlando Resort is a very walkable destination. As far as theme park resorts go, I like to refer to Universal as “quaint”. You can walk from the furthest part of the resort and be in City Walk, or both Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios in just 15 minutes. The walking paths are beautifully landscaped and very easy to maneuver, the paths are a bonus for travelers that like to keep up their jogging routine while on vacation. In addition to the walking paths there is a water taxi that connects to three of the resorts that runs continuously as well as shuttle buses form each and every on-site resort. I have little patience and still have to push my children in a stroller, so being able to just push my children down the walking path when we are ready to go. Instead of waiting a long period of time for on-site transport or having to get in my car to drive and buckle kids in car seats is a huge bonus for me!
When you want a day off from the theme parks there are so many fun options for entertainment all still within walking distance. Adults can take advantage of scheduling an appointment at the resort Spas. You can head to lunch to one of many on-site restaurants at Citywalk plus do some shopping and even get a tattoo while at Citywalk! See a movie at the 24 theater Citywalk complex or play mini golf. You can also go bowling at the newest Universal Orlando Resort on-site hotel, Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
Remember you never have to get in your car or leave the resort to do any of this. Grab your Starbucks in the morning and get ready for a day filled with activities or hang at one of the many amazing resort pools at the on-site resorts. You can also be a guest at any Universal resort and use the other resort pools and facilities interchangeably – you will never run out of things to do at Universal Orlando Resort and the convenience and walk-ability of Universal keeps stress far away from your next theme park vacation!
