Universal Orlando Resort: Our bloggers review
This October half-term, we teamed up with Universal Orlando Resort in Florida and Virgin Holidays to give four MN Bloggers the chance to #seizetheholiday and go on the trip of a lifetime
"On the flight over, the Virgin staff were friendly and looked after us brilliantly. There are all the little bits you get to make your flight easier, the kids rucksacks and eye masks on the day flight out and then toothpaste, brush, eye mask, ear plugs for all on a night flight home."
"We had never experienced anything quite so magical and immersive as Universal's ride experience before. Every ride is a cinematic mini narrative from the moment you step into the queue."
"The staff really do make the place. The customer service, the enthusiasm and the commitment to the magic and the roles they play is pretty incredible. It really does make the place feel alive, and coaxes even the most reluctant to suspend their disbelief and inhibitions and join in the fun."
"I would visit the parks just for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - the sheer scale of the set is hard to fathom."
"At the end of the first day, my son declared that he wanted to move to the resort, that's how much he loved it! And it wasn't just him, all of us had four fantastic days."
"The children loved the pools, particularly with the water slide. It was a perfect place to relax after a long day walking around the resort."
"The Loews Sapphire Falls Resort really was a great destination in itself. It was incredibly family friendly."
"The staff were super friendly and explained absolutely everything we needed to know including how to catch a water taxi."
"The Superstar Parade was absolutely breathtaking. It was bright, loud and just fascinating. The dancing and the way it was all executed was super impressive and the girls were in absolute awe the entire time."
"Our tour guide was brilliant. Right from the word go she was polite, warm and took us under her wing for two full days of making dreams come true for all of us."
"The Halloween Horror Night was amazing. The effort that goes into each house and each performance was just phenomenal."
"We visited the same restaurant for breakfast every day. What was fantastic is that the quality of service and the friendliness of the staff never changed. It was always top quality and we felt so at home."
"As you arrive, you can't help but feel like a rock star. We received an unmistakably warm American welcome and our bags were taken while we checked in and showed to our room. We had been given a standard pool view room - there was nothing standard about it; two queen beds, the biggest TV you ever did see, fantastic make up area."
"There are lots of words that I could use, but 'magical' is one of the standouts. We made the memories of a lifetime."
