Lights, Camera, Action! Universal Orlando Resort Offers Everything Groups Look for in Unforgettable Events

Banquet setup in ballroom at Universal Orlando

Already renowned for its iconic movie and TV-based theme parks, Universal Orlando Resort delivers top notch hotels, delectable dining and dazzling entertainment. But for planners looking to take their events to the next level (and who isn’t?), how about a private event where guests are immersed in worlds they have only dreamed of?

A New York Street vibe always amazes or a themed environment featuring a setting from a famous film or story. Perhaps you’d prefer to buy out the entire park and let your attendees have the night of their lives. Additionally, the resort has created full production soundstages to help you plan seamless events certain to dazzle attendees.

From inspiring environments and hotel accommodations to an exhilarating evening in the parks, a Universal Orlando meeting or event is perfect for groups of any size. Treat the team to great food, amazing surroundings and one-of-a-kind rides and attractions. The exceptional facilities and staff guarantee an experience they’ll never forget.

Universal CityWalk awaits planners looking for private dining rooms, full-venue buyouts or to customize and combine multiples for a show-stopping block party. This hub of nightlife, shopping and dining provides enough diversity and options to please your entire attendee list. Look for unique restaurants that serve up scrumptious fare, like Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville or spice it up at Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food!
