Reunion Vacation Homes Employees Enjoy a Day with Universal and U

A Universal Orlando Sales Training Program

When you visit Reunion Vacation Homes’ website and social media platforms, you will see that we are always keeping an eye on the Orlando entertainment scene. We’re eager to share our insight, special tips, and upcoming news with our guests. As locals we have first hand experience as well as special training provided by the large entertainment providers of Florida.

We recently enjoyed an opportunity to attend a Universal and U training session to learn all of the important pointers that will help us maximize your experience during your vacation at Universal Orlando®. We also partook in some very exciting news about upcoming events and new rides at Universal Orlando®.

Reunion Vacation Homes at Universal and U

What’s New?

Skull Island: Reign of Kong®
New Ride Summer 2016

The most exiting news this summer is the multi-sensory, multi-dimensional, colossal new thrill, Skull Island: Reign of Kong®. Your past movie experience will seem diminished once you’re immersed in the expedition of Skull Island, where everything is COLOSSAL, coming to life before your eyes. Thrill seekers can’t wait to visit this new ride when it opens at Universal’s Islands of Adventure® this summer.
If you wish to get a sneak peek of what to expect, the Orlando Informer incudes videos and an image gallery that is sure to give you a thrill teaser.

The Incredible Hulk Coaster®
Roaring Back in Summer 2016

Meaner and Greener than EVER they say. This roller coaster was already one of the best roller coasters in Orlando, so we can’t wait to experience the thrill-packed enhancements of this ride once it re-opens this summer. One of the reasons I personally enjoy this coaster is because it maximizes the thrill yet remains pleasant. I don’t enjoy getting jerked around or feel nauseous, but this ride is fast while smooth. I’m ready to join the line!

Wet’n Wild® Will Be Closing – Giving Way to Universal’s Volcano Bay®

Since Wet’n Wild® opened in 1977, it’s been an innovational trendsetter. It’s now scheduled to close December 31st while a new exiting water park, Volcano Bay®, opens. Until its closing, Wet’n Wild® will continue to thrill and provide a great experience for the entire family.

Having had the opportunity to create a completely new water park, Volcano Bay®, Universal has redefined the experience to be highly immersive, surrounded by the tropical paradise so many seek when visiting from the rainy north. Volcano Bay® has also been built to cater to the entire family. If you’re vacation is scheduled around the closing and opening of these two parks, you’ll have the opportunity to visit both. Now that would earn some bragging rights!

Race Through New York, Starring Jimmy Fallon®

Sounds strange? Perhaps, but knowing Universal, this ride is bound to include cutting edge technology that will wow you as you speed off on adventure, visiting top landmarks of the Big Apple while enjoying laughter and excitement.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter®
From Hogsmeade® to Diagon Alley® on the Hogwarts Express®

The biggest draw for many when choosing to vacation at Universal Orlando® is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter®. It’s not just the rides that are immersive; you enter a completely different world when you visit Hogsmeade® and Diagon Alley®. This is also one of the best reasons to purchase a Park-to-Park ticket so you can visit both parks and be able to ride on the Hogswarts Express®. You’ll regret buying a one park ticket and find your access limited in the Wizarding World.

Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights®

Universal is not only set on making everything bigger, better and faster, but also scarier. If you are vacationing Orlando during September 16 – October 31, you can purchase a separate ticket and experience true fright. This year they’ve added the Exorcist and Chainsaw Massacre movies to their haunting experiences. If you enjoy the likes of mutants, monsters and zombies, you can hang with them at Universal Orlando. Be sure to get your tickets early!

As Orlando is always growing and improving, don’t forget to check in with us here at Reunion Vacation Homes. We’re happy to hook you up with a nice place to stay to ensure your entire Orlando vacation exceeds your expectations.
