While some may think CityWalk was Universal’s answer to Downtown Disney, in fact, it was Universal Hollywood that first introduced the entertainment/dining complex. And while Universal CityWalk in Orlando can’t hold a candle to it’s counterpart in Hollywood, the 30 acres of dining, shopping and entertainment has some terrific offerings making it ‘The Entertainment Capital of Orlando’.
Everyone heading to Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure passes through CityWalk on the way to the parks. In the morning, a quick stop at Cinnabon or Starbucks is a nice way to raise your blood sugar levels and carry you through your theme park experience. In the evening, grab a bite at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville or Hard Rock Café. If you’re looking for more adult level entertainment, at night CityWalk transforms into a party atmosphere offering a range of night-club experiences from the upscale Red Coconut Club to a non-stop party at the groove. (Note: Access to some clubs in the evening does require a separate admission).
Now through December 11, 2019 you can save up to $100 when you stay four nights or longer with a Stay and Play vacation package that includes 5-night hotel accommodations, 3-Park 5-Day Tickets, Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter or Volcano Bay, and more!
