Universal's Volcano Bay_Honu of the Honu ika Moana™

Are you tired of the cold dreary weather and having to wear three layers of clothing? Have you forgotten what it feels like to soak up the sun? If so, it may be time for a change of scenery.

Here are five ways you can escape the cold with a trip to Universal Orlando Resort.

1. Visit an Island Paradise at Universal’s Volcano Bay

Enjoy paradise year-round at Universal’s Volcano Bay with heated water throughout the park during seasonal times, swaying palm trees and the glistening Florida sun. Enjoy the sunshine while splashing and relaxing with warm waves at Waturi Beach and test your courage while braving the volcano and drop 125 feet on Ko’okiri Body Plunge. The change of scenery will be so delightful; you may forget its winter.

2. Explore Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure Without Breaking a Sweat

The average daytime temperature in Orlando from Dec. to Jan. is between 70 ° to 73° Fahrenheit, making it the ideal temperature to enjoy all the attractions, restaurants and thrills.

Enjoy rocking a t-shirt while screaming the lyrics to your favorite song on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and busting a move with your favorite characters while watching Universal’s Superstar Parade. Explore both destinations at ease without the summer heat.

3. Enjoy Being Consistently Immersed in Themed Resorts

The diverse on-site hotel options at Universal Orlando make it easy to immerse yourself in a new environment. All of the unique hotels include heated pools, making it easy to enjoy the destination in any season. Plus, they’re all in close proximity to the parks with complimentary transportation to get you there.

All you have to decide is whether you want to escape to an island paradise at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, experience the retro feels of Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, relax with Italian inspired scenery at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, rock out at Hard Rock Hotel or have a luau at Loews Royal Pacific Resort.

4. Indulge in Dining and Entertainment Options at Universal CityWalk Without Shoveling Through Snow

Give your arms a break from shoveling snow and instead enjoy shoveling food into your mouth at Universal CityWalk. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy decadent milkshakes from The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, sports lovers can enjoy a cold one and watch their favorite team at NBC Sports Grill & Brew, and adventurous eaters can try “Burgushi”, a fusion of burger and sushi from The Cowfish Burger Bar. With 25 different dining options, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. And after you get full from your meal, check out the entertainment like Blue Man Group or the dueling pianos at Pat O’Brien’s.

5. Trade Driving Through the Snow with Complimentary Transportation

Travel through our entire destination while enjoying the Florida sunshine. Make this travel time an experience by enjoying beautiful views on the water taxi, shuttle bus or walking path. Complimentary transportation is available from all of our on-site hotels to our three amazing theme parks, no need to worry about heating up your car.

Start planning your escape from the snow to the sunshine now. No snowplow required.
