Family-Friendly Hotel Within Walking Distance of Universal Studios
This top-secret 3-star hotel is situated within walking distance of the Universal Orlando Resort theme park—home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Islands of Adventure, and several other popular attractions, including E.T. Adventure, the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster, and The Simpsons Ride. Additionally, the hotel offers guests discounts on Universal Orlando Resort admission tickets, food, beverages, and merchandise. A hotel shuttle drops you at the park’s doorstep. The Wet ‘n Wild water park is also nearby, and most of the Orlando area’s other major theme parks are within a half-hour drive.
Traditional king and two-queen guest rooms offer pool or city views, and each comes with a wet bar, coffeemaker, and refrigerator. Elsewhere at the hotel, you can take a swim in the outdoor pool or head up to the pool bar for a cocktail or snack. There is also an onsite restaurant, where you’ll be able to grab an international beer to wet your whistle.
Orlando, Florida: World-Famous Theme Parks and Cultural Surprises
Located in the center of Florida, Orlando may be forever associated with the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks—the world’s most-visited entertainment resort. Spanning roughly 30,000 acres, it encompasses four theme parks, two water parks, five golf courses, and the Downtown Disney® Marketplace. There’s no shortage of things to do here: begin your day by boarding a rocket-shaped three-seater that climbs to 180 feet before entering a deep black tunnel and racing past stars, satellites, and constellations. Walk across the park to sample Moroccan cuisine for lunch, or ride a dune buggy through a haunted mansion. Before heading back to the hotel, take in the nightly fireworks, laser, and water show. One of the most popular family destinations in the world, sunny Orlando is also home to Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, and Gatorland.
Those hoping to shake up the typical theme-park-dominated itinerary can head into downtown Orlando’s vibrant arts district. The neighborhood boasts venues such as CityArts Factory, a multifaceted patchwork of gallery spaces, and SAK Comedy Lab, which hosts family-friendly improv shows five nights a week.
About a 10-minute drive north, you’ll find eight cultural institutions at Loch Haven Park, including the Orlando Museum of Art, which houses work by Georgia O’Keeffe, Robert Rauschenberg, Ansel Adams, and Andy Warhol. The park is also home to the Orlando Shakespeare Theater, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orlando Science Center, where you can a rover across a simulation of Mars or race on a 70-foot pinewood derby track.
