MN Blogger: AMAZING opportunity to visit Universal Studios in Florida and review it on your blog NOW CLOSED(3 Posts)
We have been asked by the team at Universal Orlando Resort and Virgin Holidays to find 5 MN bloggers and their families to travel to Florida this October half term and #seizetheholiday! They want bloggers to stay in one of their on-site hotels, visit the parks and to then review it on their blog. Plus learn more about the exciting benefits families get when travelling to Universal Orlando with Virgin Holidays such as Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Here’s what Universal Orlando Resort have to say: “For more than 25 years, Universal Orlando Resort has been creating epic vacations holidays for the entire family – incredible experiences that place guests in the heart of powerful stories and adventures.
Universal Orlando’s two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, are home to some of the world’s most exciting and innovative attractions. Its on-site resort hotels, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort and the all-new Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, are destinations unto themselves. Its entertainment complex, Universal CityWalk, offers dining and entertainment for every member of the family.
Universal Orlando Resort has unveiled more than 20 new guest experiences since 2010 – powerful attractions, incredible dining opportunities and dramatically themed hotels. Now open is Skull Island: Reign of Kong, a ground-breaking attraction in Islands of Adventure and CityWalk’s newest, unique dining experience, The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, opened just last month.
We’d love to hear what the MN Bloggers have to say about the parks, hotels and Florida itself! So #seizetheholiday and create your own #UniversalMoments”
Obviously this is not a simple blog review and if selected you will need to be a bit flexible with the organisers – we are offering a 4 night (plus overnight flight home) trip – if you want to apply you must be free for travel dates over October half term (between 23rd – 29th October)
The trip includes:
Return economy flights (may be indirect)
Accommodation at the on-site hotels for 4 nights
VIP tours of both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure
Tickets to both parks
Tickets to one performance of Blue Man Group
A dinner at one of Universal’s newest dining establishments – The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savoury Feast Kitchen
Max party size of 5
You will need to arrange and have your own ESTA and chip passport for every member of your family and travel insurance. You may also need to pay for some transportation and for some meals/ drinks.
If selected, we will be looking for at least three blog posts about the trip: we will advise on the theme for each post with each blogger (eg hotel focused, flight and parks).
Blog posts will then be featured on our widget. The widget appears on c350 blogs across the MN network. To take part you'd also need to have the widget on your blog. We'd need you to include a link to Universal Orlando Resort in your blog post. You'd need to follow our guidelines for bloggers reviews, which will be sent to you.
We also want you to share about your trip – this includes posts on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook as well as uploading your very own holiday video to your YouTube channel.
You will need to use the hashtags sent to you.
Please note Universal Orlando Resort may well use your blog post on their website, on social media as well as possibly elsewhere.
If you'd like be considered for this and can make the dates stated, and understand what’s involved, please add your details here
We will be in touch with the selected bloggers asap
