Universal Orlando Resorts – On-Site Hotels
One of the first questions you will ask yourself when visiting the Universal Theme Parks is, Should I stay in one of the Universal Orlando Resorts? Unsatisfied, unless you stay at the Best? While the answer to this question is subjective, we think that staying at one of the Universal Orlando Resorts is the best way to go. There are some real perks to staying at one of the on-site Universal Orlando Hotels like transportation and early access to the parks.
This is a big reason many guests decide to stay at one of the Universal Orlando Resorts. Having free transportation to and from Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, City Walk, and Volcano Bay Water Park is a huge plus. If you stay at one of the Value or Prime Value Resorts, you will have a Shuttle Bus to ride to your adventure. Staying in a Preferred of Premier Resort also gains access to the Water Taxi transportation system. Also, when you stay in one of the Preferred or Premier Resorts, you have a beautiful walk to the Theme Parks and City Walk along the waterway if you prefer.

Water Park Fun
The On-Site Value Resorts at Universal Orlando have some really great pools, zero-entry access, and even a splash pad but for some additional fun, you might consider stepping up a notch to the Prime Value Resorts. The Cabana Bay Beach Resort has some really great features for the price. On one side of the Resort, you have a large pool with a water slide and on the other, you will have a huge sand area, another large pool, and a lazy river. This makes Cabana Bay one of the most fun water parks featured Resorts in the Universal Orlando lineup.
The Preferred and Premier Resorts also have some amazing pools with water slides. Be sure to check them all out and see which one is the best fit for your next trip to Universal Orlando.
Prime Value Universal Resorts
Early Park Access
Another great reason to stay at one of the Universal Orlando Resorts is “Early Access” to the Parks. As long as you have paid for your park admissions ticket to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, you get in an hour earlier than the general public to enjoy The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™. This is a huge advantage and makes you feel really special as you get to ride with fewer people in the park.

Why stay at a Premier Universal Orlando Resort?
The only Universal Orlando Resort that offers Free EXPRESS PASSES with your stay are the Premier Resorts. Yes, the Premier Resorts are more expensive than the Value, Prime Value, and Preferred but look at what you get for staying in one of these incredible resorts, Free Express Passes for every day you are booked. Once you look at the cost of adding these to a family of 4 each day, it might be something to consider. This is a huge reason to consider staying at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel or the Hard Rock Hotel.
Premier Universal Orlando Resorts
Rooms and Suites

If you do stay at one of the Premier Hotels in Universal Orlando, you will find that the rooms and suites are a little larger and give you more space to move around.
