Universal Studios Globe

You may not realize this, but Universal Studios Orlando actually has 8 on-site hotels. There are 4 levels to choose from: Value, Prime Value, Preferred, and Premier. Loews Portofino Bay Hotel is one of three Premier Hotels. These hotels are available to book as part of vacation packages with Universal Studios. And, of course, staying on-site does come with some perks! First of all, there are several vacation package types that offer discounts for bundling tickets and resorts, so there’s perk number one.

Guests of Universal Studios Orlando resorts also have free transportation to the theme parks and City Walk. There are boats, buses, and walking trails, depending on where you stay. Guests are also afforded Early Entry to the Wizarding World or Harry Potter an Volcano Bay. Get into Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley before the crowds? YES, PLEASE!

For guests of Premier-level resorts, though, the perks get even better! All guests of Premier Resorts get FREE Express Pass Unlimited as part of their vacation package. That is a value of around (the median) $129 per person PER DAY. Premier Level also gets you priority seating at select restaurants. Can’t get a reservation? No problem, get on the top of the waitlist! In addition, your room key card will have charging privileges (much like your magic band at the other theme park) throughout the resort, and have your packages sent back to your room!
