It’s an exciting summer at Universal Orlando Resort! The home of Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure (which includes The Wizarding World of Harry Potter) has just opened two new, world-class attractions:
Skull Island: Reign of Kong is a fantastical quest to find the legendary beast, himself. On your ride through dark jungles, you’ll fight off jungle predators and hostile tribes.
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is the newest on-site hotel. Lounge and splash about in the 16,000 square foot pool—the largest pool in the resort hotels—and sleep in one of 1,000 guest rooms, including 83 suites. Order a delicious meal at Amatista Cookhouse (try the mojo-marinated rotisserie chicken) and ride the watertaxi past great views of the waterfalls at the lagoon.
But Universal Orlando Resort isn’t just a fantastic family getaway—it’s also making huge strides to limit its carbon footprint.
Here are just a few ways it stay green:
- All excess food is donated to the Second Harvest Foodbank.
- 19% of the park’s total waste was diverted in 2015.
- There are 2,500 recycling locations throughout the parks.
