Dive In! Universal Orlando Spotlights Aquatic Fun at Resort Hotels


When staying on property at theme park destinations like Universal Orlando, guests often overlook the fun that can be had at the pools. The Universal Orlando Blog has posted a great overview of many of the pools and water activities at its hotels.

Check out the article below…

Whether I spend the day rocking out on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit or relaxing on Waturi Beach, my favorite way to cool off at the end of the day is with a dive-in movie at a Universal Orlando Resort hotel. Every night around sunset, weather permitting, all six Universal Orlando hotels screen your favorite family-friendly movies at the pools, which means everyone can get in on the fun.

While you’re relaxing by the pool and watching your favorite flick, make sure to check out some of my favorite things about each of our hotel pools!

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort

Bring the whole family along for a dive-in movie at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort’s pool. It’s the largest pool at Universal Orlando Resort, so there’s plenty of space and activities for everyone to enjoy before, during and after the movie. Kids will love splashing in the pool’s shallow zero entry area or zipping down the water slide while parents kick back with a refreshing Dhrum Club Punch. Make a cool family memory when you bring everyone together around the poolside fire pit to roast s’mores.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

With two pools to choose from, Cabana Bay Beach Resort offers double the fun for dive-in movie goers. While the movie is on, kids can play on the water slide beneath the glow of the neon lights at the Cabana Courtyard Pool or float down the twists and turns at the Lazy River Courtyard Pool while taking in mesmerizing nighttime views of the Krakatau Volcano at Universal’s Volcano Bay. Double the fun means you’ll need to refuel, so be sure to visit Atomic Tonic or The Hideaway Bar & Grill for delicious poolside food and drinks.
