We welcome our travel planner Jenn Elsworth to share her experience with Universal Studios Orlando’s Portofino Bay Hotel!
Universal Orlando’s current motto is “Vacation Like You Mean It”. With 3 parks to visit , the action and adventure portion of your vacation has been taken care of . The resort you stay in is just as important to help you “Vacation Like You Mean It”. Luckily Universal Orlando currently has 5 onsite resorts( and a new one on the way!) to provide a relaxing and well themed place to lay your head. Whether you want to relax by the pool, grab some grub or just take a nap, these onsite hotels put you in the “heart of all the fun”.
Our travel planner Lane is giving us her 6 favorite reasons she encourages guests to use the knowledge and expertise of a travel planner!
- Helps you save money– Travel planners are constantly informed on all the best deals and money saving options for trips all throughout the year. We get emailed the day a new promotion is available so we can get on the phone ASAP and get you the newest money saving deal. It can save you your hard earned money (so you can get that cute pair of Minnie Mouse ears you so desperately need)
- No stress dining reservations– Being on hold isn’t fun for anyone, especially when it’s for upwards of 2 hours. Long wait times are typical for Disney and this is my personal favorite reason to use a travel planner...
