All New Dockside Inn and Suites.....opening March 2020


It's a bit of a roodie doodie word for lady parts
May 15, 2007
In March 2020 another hotel will open up as part of the Universal Orlando Resort.

When both sides are open there will be 2050 rooms and suites at excellent prices for affordable family vacations.

As of now (Feb 2020) we don't really have a lot of information outside of what is available on the Universal website, for example we have no menu`s from their onsite food options. These should be announced soon. We will update as we get any information along the way. And new pictures will be added when the resort opens next month.

Opening March 17, 2020

Unwind in an all-new, carefree escape that’s extra-affordable. Inspired by sand, sea and breathtaking sunsets, this retreat has a coastal vibe and comes with all the fun and convenience of staying with Universal—including awesome hotel guest benefits. With plenty of standard rooms and spacious, two-bedroom suites that sleep six, it’s a great spot for families of any size to base their Universal vacation.

A sister hotel, Surfside Inn and Suites, is now open. Both hotels will be part of Universal's Endless Summer Resort, a vibrant and sunny retreat.

    Last time we went to universal we stayed at Cabana Bay. We loved the fact that there was a walking path right to the parks. Is that an option with this new hotel too? I thought I read Universal was constructing a walkway but I don’t see that info anywhere online anymore.

    There already is a path.

    You cross the road from Dockside and the path takes you right over the I-4 to the parking garage area. The road you have to cross has a crossing, it looks worse than it is and many folks already use this path.

    Check out Google maps and you’ll see the road.
