Valentines Day at a Universal Orlando Park

Couples who are looking for an unconventional approach to Valentines Day this year may want to consider a visit to a Universal Orlando theme park, which includes Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. At Universal Studios Florida, the No. 1 movie and TV-based theme park in the world, guests can “ride the movies” at this real, working film and television studio. Neighboring Islands of Adventure may be only steps away, but the atmosphere couldn’t be any more different, as this high-tech park aims to thrill you with the most innovative attractions in the country, from high-speed roller coasters to children’s rides that are second to none.

If you are looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate Valentine’s Day in this park, the most recommended sit-down restaurant is Lombard’s Seafood Grille. With prices ranging from $11-30 per meal, this restaurant offers a delectable sample of fresh seafood, chowder, pastas and salads, including a hearty fried clam basket that is highly recommended.

If you are planning to extend your Valentine’s Day activities out until the weekend at Universal, you will want to be sure to hit up Universal Studios Florida on Saturday, February 16 for the Mardi Gras Celebration. Each Saturday from February 2-April 19, the streets of Universal come alive with a special Mardi Gras parade, live music – and of course – those famous beads! On February 16, Sara Evans will take the stage to perform for the guests at Universal Studios Florida, and the best part about the whole celebration is that it is included with theme park admission!

Islands of Adventure, also open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, offers thrill seekers the perfect day full of adventure, as some of the top roller coasters and attractions in the country are located here, including the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, Dueling Dragons and the Incredible Hulk Coaster. And after you have worked up an appetite on these rides, you can head over to one of the most highly coveted sit-down restaurants in all of Orlando for a dining experience that is second to none! Mythos Restaurant, which has been given the Theme Park Insider Award as the best theme park restaurant for the past four years, features fresh, contemporary cuisine, a full bar including wine selection, family favorites like fresh salads, wood-fired oven pizzas and burgers and elaborate dishes of fish, seafood and steaks. Reservations can be made at this restaurant, and even if you are not visiting the theme park, you can still dine here by leaving a credit card at the gate and staying inside the park for only a certain window of time.
