The Family Holiday of a Lifetime At Universal Orlando Resort

As countries begin to reopen borders and dreams of travel start to become a reality once more, now is a perfect time to get planning your dream 2021 family getaway with American Holidays. 

Universal Orlando Resort is the ideal family holiday destination and has recently announced the reopening of selected hotels as of 2nd June.

Universal Orlando Resort guarantees thrilling experiences for kids of all ages, boasting three amazing theme parks – Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and the all-new Volcano Bay™ water theme park. 

The Parks 

Calling all Muggles! Take a ride on the Hogwarts Express, wander down Diagon Alley, visit a bank run by Goblins and take a ride on the legendary Knight Bus at Universal Studios Florida! But, that’s not all. This park is home to more than Harry Potter. Experience rides, shows, and character appearances from your favourite TV shows and movies. Whether it’s Fast and Furious, Transformers, Shrek or Despicable Me, Universal Studios Florida offers something for the whole family. 

Universal’s Islands of Adventure was named the number one Amusement Park in the World 2019 by TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award, and it’s no surprise why. This theme park has something for kids of all ages. See superheroes battle in the streets, enjoy storybooks brought to life and experience close encounters with a dinosaur. Iif you love the thrill of a real roller-coaster, The Incredible Hulk Coaster accelerates to 108 km/h and flips through seven exciting inversions. Or the sheer fun of the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit steel roller coaster with top speeds of 105 km/h featuring on-ride music LED lighting, and on-ride photos and videos to capture the best moments of the ride! From Spiderman to Jurassic Park and everything in between, this is one park not to be missed. 

Thanks to the power of TapuTapu™, a waterproof wearable, at Volcano Bay™ there’s no standing in long lines, no carrying rafts around the park – nothing between you and a full day of fun. Many of the rides are multi-person, making it the perfect water park for families to enjoy some fun and make memories together.

Through the app, guests can manage their park passes, get notified on the latest wait times for rides, and avoid long waits in line with the Virtual Line™ Return Time.
