Magical base for exciting Florida holidays
Your holiday would not be complete without exploring the world outside the theme parks! The Universal Resort is superbly placed for enjoying the amazing attractions of Orlando, but most holidays are simply not long enough to take full advantage of the other myriad attractions in the region like Seaworld Orlando, Cirque du Soleil, Discovery Cove, Water Mania, Gatorland and Wet `n Wild Orlando, not to mention tempting Florida holiday excursions like the Gulf Coast and the Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral! Your holidays could also take in attractions such as huge ranches with rodeo shows, exotic swamps with exciting alligator spotting boat trips, horse riding, top-class golf, fishing, fantastic watersports and spectator sports like football and baseball. You will never be stuck for things to do! And did we mention Walt Disney?!
Weather at Universal Resort
Universal Resort is the perfect year round destination as the theme parks of Universal Studios and the Islands of Adventure open their doors regardless of the weather and the popularity of these attractions means that they are bustling for 12 months of the year. The Orlando region high season is generally the winter months when temperatures are lower and average around a very pleasant 15-18 degrees, the weather is largely dry and the sun shines for around 10 hours a day. As so much of the theme park areas are covered, it really doesn't matter too much what the weather does and due to warm year round temperatures even a bit of rain won't put the dampeners on the fun and excitement. The Orlando area incorporating Universal Resort can be very hot and humid in the summer with temperatures reaching into the mid 30Cs and humidity levels can be quite high. This shouldn't put you off, however, as everywhere in America is well serviced by air conditioning and hotel rooms, shopping centres and public transport all remain very cool even when the heat outside is at its most intense. In the summer months, it remains warm in the evenings and temperatures of around 20C after dark make eating out and strolls at dusk a very pleasant experience.
