Universal Orlando Resort is a world-renowned entertainment destination located in Orlando, Florida. It is one of the most popular theme park complexes in the United States and a must-visit for thrill-seekers, movie enthusiasts, and fans of immersive experiences. The resort comprises two major theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, as well as the entertainment complex CityWalk.
Universal has been following in Disney World’s footsteps, and many Universal fans believe Universal is passing Disney due to the leaps they are making. Universal Studios Hollywood recently built SUPER NINTENDO WORLD, bringing Mario, Peach, and Bowser to life. Over in Universal Orlando at Universal Studios Florida, they recently opened a Minion Land, which features Bob, Kevin, Stuart, Gru, and the girls. Also, in Minion Land, a new attraction called Villian Con Minion Blast has opened, as well as other locations like Bake My Day, and many more Minion-themed offerings.
Universal is in the process of building a third theme park at Universal Orlando called Epic Universe. Universal’s Epic Universe will feature SUPER NINTENDO WORLD, How to Train Your Dragon, Universal Classic Monsters, another Wizarding World, and the Central Hub, which will be space-themed. Each of these different lands will offer exciting attractions for guests.
While Universal Orlando continues to grow at a rapid speed due to the high demand of guests with adding a new theme park, a new resort is needed. Universal guests staying on site get perks and early access to parks. Guests can stay at an upscale, rock ‘n’ roll-themed hotel called Hard Rock Hotel, which offers a luxurious experience with rock memorabilia, a stunning pool area, and exclusive perks like early park admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Guests can also choose to stay at Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, and Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
While all these Universal Hotels and Resorts seem expensive, they offer special boat transportation from the parks and fast passes. Guests staying at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort sadly do not get fast passed, but they are within walking distance from Universal Water Park Volcano Bay. Aventura Hotel offers a sleek, modern design with panoramic views from its rooftop bar, Bar 17 Bistro. This is a more budget-friendly option with a casual vibe and a unique tablet-based room control system.
Last but not least, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites and Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites are budget-friendly and offer early access to the parks, and bus transportation for guests heading to Universal. Each of these Universal Orlando Resorts offers its own charm, amenities, and benefits. Guests can often take advantage of early park admission to Universal’s theme parks, allowing them to access popular attractions before the general public.
With Epic Universe coming soon, Universal fans scrolling on the Universal Resort page came across the newest Resort, Universal Stella Nova Resort! Alicia Stella reported on this new Resort. So far, fans believe this Resort will open on January 21, 2025, but nothing has been confirmed. The outside of this new Resort looks shimmery and should stand out from the other Universal Resorts.
Uh the web page loaded for me! Inspired by the infinite vastness of the unknown universe, where galaxies spiral ever outward, and unknown worlds revolve around unnamed stars, Universal Stella Nova Resort, opening January 21, 2025, is your new gateway to Universal Orlando Resort.
