Universal Orlando Resort is a growing destination for bachelorette party getaways, and it’s easy to see why. Looking for just the thing for that one last fling? Read on for all the reasons that Universal Orlando should be at the top of your list.
On-Site Hotels Are On-Point
With five on-site hotels, and a sixth on the way, there’s a perfect setting for every group’s dream slumber party. Loews Royal Pacific Resort is a taste of Oahu in Orlando, the upcoming modern Universal’s Aventura Hotel will boast a sleek rooftop bar, and Loews Sapphire Falls Resort has a killer rum bar and colorful Caribbean theming.
All on-site hotel guests score an extra hour in the theme parks with Early Park Admission. And Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel Orlando and Loews Royal Pacific Resort include complimentary Universal Express Passes for each guest.
Not to mention, with fantastic dining, nightlife and entertainment options on-site and free transportation around the various attractions, you can skip a rental car – leaving more bachelorette budget for toasting the bride!
Dressing Up is A Must-Do
Who’s your favorite character at Universal Orlando Resort? The Minions from Despicable Me? Rogue and Storm from Marvel Super Hero Island? Get creative and think of a fun coordinating outfit for your crew that celebrates it – a costume dedicated to your favorite character, or custom t-shirts with a shout-out to the bride, perhaps.
It doesn’t really matter what it is – just that you’re all wearing it together! Bonus? It will never be easier to find each other in the parks. Don’t forget to grab a group photo in front of the globe on your way in. And if you’re really feeling ambitious, come up with a fun hashtag for your trip that you can all use on social media.
The Nightlife is Amazing – and Affordable
When it’s time to hit the town, there’s nowhere better than Universal CityWalk for a full lineup of venues to suit all tastes and moods.
Ready to get down on the dancefloor? Head to Red Coconut Club and the groove for traditional nightclub fun. Prefer the view from onstage? Be the star at CityWalk’s Rising Star karaoke. Craving a live band and reggae vibes? Bob Marley–A Tribute to Freedom has you covered. And if you’re feeling restless, you can easily pop between them thanks to CityWalk’s convenient layout.
Best of all? Staying on-site at any of the five Universal Orlando Resort hotels means you have free access to all CityWalk nightlife venues – no cover! Just show your room key to enter. Consider that mischief managed.
If you’re looking for more G-rated evening entertainment, there’s mini-golf, a 20-screen cinema, and Blue Man Group. Whatever vibe your crew is going for, you’ll find it here.
Getting Home Safe is a Cinch
The end of the night fight for the front of a cab line? Forget it! At Universal Orlando, there’s a free and easy way to get back to your hotel from CityWalk.
Just hop on the water taxis or shuttle buses for a safe ride until 2am in the morning. It’s never been simpler to round up your girls after a night out.
Plenty of Options for a Pool Day
Universal Orlando’s third theme park, Universal’s Volcano Bay, offers plenty of opportunity for a full day of fun in the sun. Rent a Private Cabana to make sure your girls have plenty of room to relax between waterslides.
Looking for something more low-key? Enjoy any of the on-site hotel pools, regardless of which one you’re calling home-away-from-home – just show your room key for access.
Consider the Hard Rock Hotel for a poolside party, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort for a vintage vacation vibe (pack your own fun pool floats for the lazy river!), or Loews Sapphire Falls Resort for a tropical treat. Each of the hotels have reasonably-priced poolside cabanas available – just call reception or text your concierge (at participating hotels) to check prices.
Sp-ahhh-ing It Up is Easy
Feeling delicate after a big night out on the dance floor or a big day out in the parks? Ease away any and all tension with a group trip to the Mandara Spa at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. A Dolce Limoncello Body Polish with Massage will leave you feeling like you’ve been transported to a day spa in Italy. Afterwards, relax by the Villa or Hillside pools and enjoy a frozen Bellini toast to the bride!
A theme park bash, a pool party, a big night out or a spa vacation? At Universal Orlando Resort, you don’t have to pick just one for your BFF’s bachelorette. With endless entertainment options, safe, convenient and free transportation within the resort, and literal worlds full of your favorite characters, Universal Orlando is the perfect bachelorette bash port of call.
