There is so much to take advantage of while staying on property during a Universal Orlando Resort vacation. There are a total of four resorts, three deluxe and one value resort.The three deluxe resorts are Loews Royal Pacific, The Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Portofino Bay (all listed in order of pricing least expensive and up). The new Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which just recently opened, is Universal's first ever value resort offering new and exciting family suites. All four of these resorts on Universal property have either walking trails, water taxi's and bus transportation to both parks and CityWalk. You can walk to CityWalk and both of the parks right from any of the resorts which is a fun, great way for saving time and just making the vacation that much more convenient!
Walking to CityWalk from your resort makes for an additional exciting day of shopping, dining, and entertainment to add on top of visiting the parks and there is never an admission fee. CityWalk is known as a 30-acre entertainment complex that is great fun for a family, a night out with friends, or a romantic dinner with a loved one. They host concerts and events all through out the year, as well as offering many nightclubs, restaurants, shops, and cinemas.
One of my favorite perks for staying on property is the Unlimited Express Pass you will receive if you stay in one of the three deluxe resorts (Cabana Bay does not offer this presently ). The Express Pass will maximize your vacation time and get you through the lines straight to the front and you will never wait longer than ten minutes for your favorite participating rides or attractions at both of the parks!
For all of our Harry Potter fans, this is a MUST! For guests staying on property they will receive Early Park Admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter which is an essential factor to making your vacation a success. Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the hottest thing that has happened to Orlando in a long time therefore they are going to be packed for quite some time! Booking one of the new exclusive Harry Potter Vacation Packages will also get you one breakfast per person at the Leaky Caldron in Universal Studios Florida as well as the Three Broomsticks in Universal's Islands of Adventure. Deluxe resort guests will receive priority restaurant seating at participating restaurants at both theme parks as well as first available seating at Universal Orlando and CityWalk restaurants .
