Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort
Orlando visitors can travel back to the 1960s at Universal Orlando Resort's vintage beach getaway, Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Two brand-new glass towers, called Bayside & Beachside, have been added to the popular, retro lodgings.
In addition to their distinctive look and design, the glass towers come with a unique perk: An up-close, breathtaking view of the Krakatau volcano at Universal's Volcano Bay, the new water park next door. Visitors can relax in their rooms while enjoying the tropical view of waterfalls during the day and the amazing display of Krakatau erupting with fiery "lava" at night.
Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort
In the heart of Walt Disney World property, you can head back to your luxurious hotel room without missing the fireworks — any of them! Book a park-facing room at Four Seasons and watch the skies above Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom light up every night.
You can enjoy the magic from the comfort and privacy of your room or catch an elevator up to Capa Steakhouse & Bar, the hotel's rooftop Spanish steakhouse, for spectacular views in the open air.
Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge offers a unique wilderness experience packed into a highly themed hotel. You can expect all the quality comforts of a Disney Resort, plus up-close encounters with African wildlife.
Giraffes, zebras and other animals roam the plains right outside your window for an unforgettable stay that's still convenient to the Disney parks. If you wish to add more magic to your experience, you can set out for a private safari encounter with the exotic animals at the resort right before grazing on a multi-course meal at Jiko — The Cooking Place.
Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando
Inspired by the Italian seaside town of Portofino, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando offers stunning views of Italian-style architecture, cobblestone paths and the lovely Portofino Bay. But there's more to the waterway than just looks. It is also a working, water-taxi route that takes visitors straight to Universal's parks and Universal CityWalk.
If you're hungry but still want to enjoy the sights, don't despair. Grab an outdoor seat at Trattoria del Porto restaurant, which overlooks the picturesque Portofino Bay. Looking at the waterway, you might forget that you're not actually in Europe. Ciao!
