Miami & Universal Hotel Orlando FAQs

Miami & Universal Hotel Orlando FAQs
The summer holidays may be tempting, but with Florida’s hurricane season hitting between June and November, as well as swelteringly hot temperatures, we recommend a visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn. As well as more comfortable temperatures (spring in Miami is around 26°C and 29°C in Orlando, while November sees average temperatures of 26°C in both cities), you’ll be avoiding the busy winter season, too.
Plus, if you plan your Miami and Universal Hotel Orlando multi-centre holidays in November, you can catch the Thanksgiving celebrations in Miami and the beginning of Christmas at Universal, including The Grinchmas™ Who-liday Spectacular.
Miami and Orlando are both generally 5 hours behind the UK, observing Eastern Standard Time (EST).
However, if you’re travelling in March or November, look out for when their time zones change to Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), as US clocks go forward or backward an hour on different Sundays than in the UK.
Jet into Miami International Airport (MIA), with frequent direct flights from both London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW). Or embark on a one-stop flight from Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, or Bristol.
If you’re stopping in Orlando first, fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO) directly from Gatwick, Heathrow, or Manchester Airport (MAN).
If you need flight advice for your multi-centre holiday to Miami and Universal Hotel Orlando, just ask our team of US experts.
We are proud to offer guaranteed prices up to 36 months ahead of your multi-centre holiday. You can secure your perfect package with an initial low deposit today and pay the remainder of your holiday in monthly instalments.
There’s a reason Greater Miami and Miami Beach are afforded the legendary allure as Florida’s best beach holiday. Whether you fancy spending your time people-watching at the famous South Beach (known locally as SoBe) or exploring the historic and beautiful Virginia Key Beach Park, there’s a beach for everyone and every mood.
For a more peaceful, family-friendly beach spot, head to North Beach, where you’ll find a playground and walking trails as well as the stunning white sands and aquamarine waters. Or head to the uncrowded stretch of sand that is Sunny Isles Beach, located in the northernmost reaches of Miami Beach; here, you’ll find a 600-foot fishing pier for incredible ocean panoramas.
Looking for somewhere a little more active? Head to Crandon Park Beach on Key Biscayne, which offers everything from kiteboarding lessons to kayak rentals, plus a golf course, volleyball nets, and a tennis centre.
Miami may be best known for its stunning beaches, but the Magic City is home to a huge array of activities and attractions, so you’re sure to find something for everyone.
Arts and culture cravers should head to the famous Wynwood Walls, where nearly 50 stunning murals adorn the walls, with some of the world’s best artists contributing to the exhibition each year. Or head to the stunning and historic estate of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, where you can wander the main house and explore the expansive manicured gardens, which overlook the waterfront.
Lovers of the great outdoors will adore the stunning Venetian Pool in Coral Gables, where you can cool off from the Miami heat in the crystal-clear water. Or why not head to the nearby Everglades National Park for a tour or rent a kayak to explore the park on the water?
Biscayne National Underwater Park is also well worth a visit; step aboard a glass-bottomed boat or don your snorkel as you discover the stunning ecosystem, with its mangrove forests and colourful coral reefs.
With so much to see and do, you may want to focus your trip solely on Miami. If that’s the case, you can find your dream Miami twin-centre itinerary here.
Miami is one of Florida’s true foodie hubs, with incredible restaurants, pop-ups, food trucks, and more. But if there’s one thing your tastebuds can’t miss on your Miami trip, it’s a classic Miami Cuban sandwich. Inspired by the city’s rich Cuban heritage, the sandwich is a staple on many local menus, and while the exact recipe may change slightly between restaurants, it’s essentially ham, roasted pork, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard on Cuban bread.
Thanks to its incredible waterfront location, Miami is also known for its delicious seafood. We recommend the fresh ceviches or stone crab, with the latter in-season between mid-October and May 1st each year, giving you plenty of opportunity to try it for yourself. For the city’s best stone crab, we recommend Joe’s Stone Crab — a Miami institution that first opened in 1913; Joe’s serves its iconic stone crab claws over ice.
Stay in a Universal Orlando hotel and you’ll enjoy endless entertainment from the moment you wake. Here, you’re right in the heart of all the action. Choose from the likes of the Endless Summer Resort – Surfside with its surf and beach theme, the retro 1950s and 1960s-style Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and the rock ‘n’ roll themed Hard Rock Hotel® — plus many more.

Depending on the hotel you choose, you’ll have a whole heap of benefits at your fingertips, from free queue-jumps with a complimentary Universal Express Unlimited ride pass to complimentary transportation to the Universal theme parks.
The hotels also offer themed pools, an attraction ticket centre, and many also offer a full-service restaurant for those days you don’t want to dine at the parks.
With three Universal parks to choose from, you’ll never be bored on your Miami and Universal Hotel Orlando multi-centre holidays. Jump into the action of the movies at Universal Studios Florida, home to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ - Diagon Alley™, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D, and The Simpsons Ride™.
At Universal’s Islands of Adventure, you’ll explore uniquely-themed islands where action and adventure await. Channel your inner superhero as you save the city on The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man®, soar above Hogwarts on the thrilling Harry Potter™ and the Forbidden Journey™ ride, or come face-to-face with King Kong on Skull Island: Reign of Kong.
The third park is Universal’s Volcano Bay, a spectacular volcano that towers over a golden-sand beach. This is a water theme park like no other, with thrilling water slides and serene waterfalls. It’s the perfect place to continue your beach break after you leave Miami!
With plenty of quick, full-service restaurants, you’ll never go hungry on park days! Savour snacks like churros and soft pretzels as well as themed eateries.
For a taste of home, head to the Leaky Cauldron™ in Universal Studios, with a menu of traditional British fare including bangers and mash, toad in the hole, and fish and chips — served in a magical Harry Potter-inspired pub setting.
You can also visit Krusty the Clown’s famous Springfield burger joint, where you’ll savour the legendary Krusty Burger. Yum!
