Having on-site dining is a wonderful experience, especially when you have had a full day at the pool. The last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time getting ready and trying to find just the right place to eat. Not a problem at the Hard Rock Hotel, there are 3 main dining locations at Universal Orlando’s Hard Rock Hotel and if you are wanting to do something extra fun with the children, take them to the Emack & Bolio Ice Cream Parlor. They are going to love spending time at this part of the resort. If you can’t find just what you are looking for on the property, climb aboard a water taxi to City Walk and enjoy one of the many dining pleasures that they have.
