Navidades en Universal Giveaway #UniversalOrlando


It’s no secret that I love theme parks. A few years back, before we had kids,  and to celebrate my hubby’s graduation from college, we took a trip to Orlando. It is to date, one of the absolute funnest vacations we have ever taken. We were bone tired at the end of each night, from all of the fun we were having exploring Orlando and the Florida coast.

It’s also the first time I fell in love with a thrill ride and a theme park. The minute we stepped inside Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure, I fell in love. It is absolutely the best theme park I have ever visited. There is fun at every corner and my favorite ride of all time, The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man, calls it home. We were there during the holidays and there really couldn’t be a better time to visit. I remember getting soaked at Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls with my hubby, and when i’m talking soaking, we were drenched! We were  wet as all can be and laughed all the way  to our hotel room. We had a blast and didn’t want our day or vacation to end. I really can’t wait to do it again, except this time, with our two kiddos, who I know would have the time of their lives!

The Universal Orlando Resort is home to two theme parks: Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The parks are home to more than 50 attractions and over two dining options. There is also an  entertainment complex, Universal CityWalk, which is home to dozens of restaurants and shops.  The resort is also home to three hotels, The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort

Visiting the Universal Orlando Resort during the holidays is a special time. The parks are decked out in decorations and a festive spirit fills the air. Beginning Dec. 1 and running through Jan.1, the Holidays at Universal Orlando offers incredible entertainment experiences at both theme parks.At Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Grinchmas comes to life throughout Seuss Landing, where guests can see the heartwarming live stage show, “Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular”,starring The Grinch and the Whos from Who-ville. Guests can also meet The Grinch and strolling Whos who wander through Seuss Landing.

At Universal Studios Florida, the Macy’s Holiday Parade will fill the streets every evening with the same larger-than-life balloons seen in the famous New York City parade.

    I would love to take my 2 kids and husband to Florida during the holiday season to experience the Magic of Disney and visit a new park that we haven’t been to before like Universal.

  2. Yvonne Crawford says:

    My family and I have never been to Unnuversal Orlando but we have been to the California one :) There’s just something about theme parks..when my husband was diagnosed with cancer the second time around the day after we found out we took the kids to a theme park..bringing laughter in any situation always makes it feel as if no matter what it will all be alright! Laughter and family is the best medicine! :)

  3. serena ashcroft says:

    Would love to experience the resort with my husband and 3 kids. We love Christmas and love being together as a family. We have never been there and this would be a really nice break for us!

  4. Leigh says:

    I would love to explore the magic of those theme parks with my two kiddos. We would love the opportunity to visit, as without winning this giveaway, that would not be an experience that would be possible for us at this time. Thanks for your consideration! :)

  5. Nadine says:

    For me, it’s most important to be with my family during the holidays. It doesn’t matter where we are as long as we are together. I would LOVE to spend the holidays in Florida. My daughters’ grandparents live there and it would be wonderful to see her reconnect with them! Especially at Universal Studios!! We’ve been to the CA one and always have so much fun so I can imagine how awesome it would be to visit two parks in FL! Thanks for another great opportunity! :)

  6. Cheri H. says:

    We (our family) has never been to Orlando before. I can imagine it would be magical with holiday festivities especially the parade! Being together and experiencing the magic and awe would be fun and so meaningful!

  7. Jill Basilio says:

    I would love to see all of the Christmas-themed rides, shows, and characters with my family. Universal is always fun, and we would love to see other parks in Orlando as well. This is the ultimate giveaway!

  8. Laura says:

    Last year Santa brought my daughter an annual pass to Universal Hollywood so a couple days after Christmas we all went up to Universal and saw Jeanette McCurdy (Sam from iCarly). It was the first time my kids had seen a celebrity and it was so fun. I’ve been to Universal Orlando many times, but never during the holidays. I am dying to bring my kids to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which I know they would love! We go to Orlando several times every year, but they still haven’t seen WWoHP. I’m also going to Florida next weekend, and would certainly get use out of some tickets. :)

  9. Jennifer R says:

    We are going to Orlando from March 16-22 we would love to take advantage of this offer and add this to our trip!!! Thanks!

  10. Kindra Crandell says:

    Hoping just to make some amazing memories with my 4 & 5 year old. If we won tickets it would be AWESOME!! My 40th bday is in April and we are planning a big trip when my daughter is on spring break in March, so going to FL would be awesome!!!

  11. Tiffany says:

    Me and hubby have been to Orlando before we had kids. Hubby got sick when we were there and we didn’t see nor do much. We really want to visit Orlando as a family and this is a great opportunity. Thank you for doing this. This will definitely build a wonderful memory for the family who wins the tickets.

  12. Trish says:

    It would be a welcome reward for the entire family if we were to win this awesome prize! It’s been a rough year with very little family down time. The only family trip we’ve taken was to visit relatives in the Midwest two years ago so they could meet our youngest child. I’ve heard from so many friends how much fun there is to be had in Orlando!

  13. chris g says:

    I remember visiting years ago on our honeymoon, We purchased 2 day park hopper tickets. Back then those were the only tickets that allowed an express pass type tickets. So few people had them. So my wife and I used ours on all the rides. We managed to ride all the major rides in both parks in one day. And never waited more than 5 minutes for any of them.

  14. teri h says:

    we did a tour a few years back so we didint have to wait online. It was a great splurge and got to see a few behind the scenes things

  15. Elizabeth says:

    This is definitely on our family bucket list to one day visit Universal Orlando. My daughter is a big Harry Potter fan and I have heard the attractions there are unbelievable. Would love to win this giveaway :)

  16. Teh Doll says:

    We took my daughter on her 4th birthday. Little guy has not been yet but I know he would love it. Also we are really excited about the new Harry Potter addition. My fav is Suess land it is really neat seeing all the characters off the pages and in to real life.


  17. Ani says:

    We’ve been to Disney but not Universal and my kids would love to go! During the holidays I’d love to see the Holiday Parade since my youngest loves parades.

  18. Carolyn G says:

    My favorite memory is going to Universal Orlando with my husband on the first Christmas we were together. It was spur of the moment adventure but it was so great.

  19. Jennifer Thompson says:

    My favorite memory is when my parents took my little sister and I back in 1990 right before my dad left for Desert Storm. This was our first and last time there but I would love for my 2 little ones to experience it now :)

  20. Jill Basilio says:

    The last time we went to Orlando was when my boyfriend was there for a convention so he mostly worked while my son and I did the tourist stuff. If all goes well with my school this upcoming year, we’re planning on going there come summer time. This would be a lot of fun for the three of us to actually enjoy together. I love the holiday theme that Universal puts together.

  21. Albert ruiz says:

    My wife and I talked about taking the kids to Orlando for our next family trip, we would like to see all the shows and attractions the park has to offer. Our kids will very excited and happy to visit this magical place
