We’re Off To Universal Orlando Resort with Virgin Holidays | Travel Tuesday

Welcome to Travel Tuesday, the new weekly feature on the blog that will see me share our adventures, wanderlust list and travel must haves. And what a way to kickstart than with the most exciting news. Yesterday we were invited to Universal Orlando Resort, Florida with Virgin Holidays and we’re traveling in less than two weeks… WOW!!!


After jumping round like a child and pinching myself yesterday evening I decided to tell Boo just before bed (ok I admit, rookie mistake – it took her nearly and hour to calm down, who can blame her!!)

Here’s the video of me telling her…

I’ll be sharing our itinerary as I learn what amazing adventures await us as and when I find out. So my big question is, have you been to Universal Resort Orlando? Do you have any tips? I’ll be travelling on my own with Boo so I’m looking at getting the most out of our time there and what they have to offer modern family set ups.

Bring on the fun, sun and adventure with Universal Resort Orlando and Virgin Holidays!

Disclosure: We are set to be guests of Universal Orlando Resort and Virgin Holidays, all opinions are my own.

    You’ll have an amazing time. You’ll be tired, it’s not a relaxing holiday but make the most of all day, everyday (you can rest when you get home lol) Harry Potter is just FAB!

    How fabulous!! I have Disney on the brain right now. It is moving higher and higher up my priority list, and I love reading about other people’s adventures. Have a great time!

    wow what a fab opportunity, you will have an amazing time!! We went to Orlando last Sep and had our son (he was 3 then) with us. We’ve done Universal before several times but never with a kid but it was even more fun – there is just so much to see and do! The highlight for me was all the Harry Potter stuff – even if you’re not a big fan you will be so amazed with everything, especially the fire breathing dragon! Islands of Adventure is my fave of the two parks and we love the Jurassic Park area. Citywalk is brilliant too, loads of bars and restaurants with a great atmosphere and loads going on. I’m so envious, you will have so much fun!

    I’ve only ever been to DisneyWorld and SeaWorld, but there are really great shopping centers in Orlando too. Well worth a visit.
