Universal Orlando Resort Spring Break

As all transplanted northerners know, intense cabin fever plagues those living in cold weather climates this time of year. You might carefully scroll through your feed hoping to avoid your neighbor’s photos from their exotic winter getaway to Bora Bora. Meanwhile, you stare out your icy window into the grey void longing for a glimpse of sunshine that is still months away. Well, hold the hot chocolate and give those boots the boot because at Universal Orlando Resort we simply don’t do winter.

Here are some reasons to pack your bags for a Universal Orlando vacation this winter.

  1. Because your feet prefer the warm sands of Waturi Beach over the cold floors of your Colonial-style home.
