FREE transportation to Universal Studios theme parks.
Included in your hotel room rate is complimentary shuttle service to the gates of Universal Studios which gives access to both theme parks plus Universal CityWalk shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Shuttles are by bus or water taxi 7 days a week. (Below – water taxi to the gates of Universal Studios).
FREE transportation to Wet N Wild and SeaWorld
Yet another great benefit of staying here is the free shuttle service to SeaWorld and Wet N Wild water park. Shuttles run once per day each way and you must remember to make reservations ahead of time at the check-in desk.
FREE Express Ride Access
This alone can make a huge difference to your theme park experience. Universal Express Ride Pass are similar to the fast Passes that you can buy. These passes will allow you to show your room key and enter the Express lines at any ride within the theme parks. You’ll be practically first in-line ahead of everyone else. At peak times this can be a great benefit. Imagine waiting for 2 hours for each ride, that can eat up your valuable time at the parks.
This hotel is pet friendly! Good news for pet owners, all 3 Universal Resort Hotels are pet friendly. There are designated pet friendly rooms (non-smoking garden and non-smoking pool view only) where you can have a maximum of 2 pets per room. There is a one-time cleaning fee of $25 per room.
Child Sitting Service
Lil Rock Kids’ Camp for 4-14 year olds is a fully supervised activity center. It offers arts & crafts, board games, stories, movies, video games and much more. This is perfect if you want to have a few drinks or a meal without the kids in tow.
Unfortunately, staying ‘on-site’ doesn’t give you free parking. Parking costs $15 per night plus tax (12.5%)! This could add up over a number of nights. Although if you plan on visiting the theme parks a lot, you will save money by not paying to park at the theme park garage ($12).
