Universal-ly the Best - DoSomethingDifferent

Universal-ly the Best with Do Something Different!

Universal-ly the Best with Do Something Different! hosted one of their famous Fam trips to Orlando, taking in Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay! Caitriona Fleming (Cassidy Travel), Lisa Kearney (Best4Travel) & Rebecca Clarke (Navan Travel) travelled with Martin Page (DoSomethingDifferent) to Florida. The group stayed at the plush Aventura Hotel overlooking Volcano Bay with Islands of Adventure in the distance.


The group enjoyed first-class treatment with the Universal VIP Guides leading them around Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure (soon to be available to book through DSD). They enjoyed everything, from hanging upside down on The Hulk, travelling vertically on Rip Ride Rockit, being immersed in the World of King Kong through to getting soaked on Dudley Do Right’s Ripsaw Falls!


A rip-roaring good night was had at Pat O'Brien's in City Walk. The highly recommended Hurricane cocktail packed a punch, with a face or two looking as green as “The Hulk” the next morning!


The group took on Volcano Bay for water theme park fun and, thanks to the ease of Tapu Tapu (virtual queuing system) there were no queue times! From riding the Krakatau Aqua Coaster, enjoying two lazy rivers (one isn’t so lazy) to Ko’okiri Body Plunge (seriously YouTube it), Cat, Rebecca and Lisa enjoyed all that was on offer! That evening it was off to the eclectic Blue Man Group show for all ages and even some Irish audience participation!


After visiting Universal Hotels, they enjoyed the highlight of the trip - Halloween Horror Nights! This is one of a kind with ten themed houses to walk through and five scare zones throughout the park. Each house has a brilliant story and the costumes and graphics are outstanding. From thrilling scares to laughs and maybe a toilet run or two due to being chased by scare actors with chainsaws, this is a brilliant night and a must-do if here during Halloween!


From rides to slides, Hurricanes to Halloween horrors, the group all had a fabulous time thanks to Universal Orlando!
