Orlando is going to look totally different in 2025. Why? Universal’s new Epic Universe theme park will be open!
As we get closer to the opening Universal is releasing new details, including the confirmation of five lands — Super Nintendo World, Celestial Park, Dark Universe, a How to Train Your Dragon land, and a new Wizarding World of Harry Potter land. While the park is mind-blowing on its own, one hotel just might make your jaw drop.
Epic Universe will bring many guests to the Universal theme parks and they’ll need a place to stay. That’s why Universal is also building several new hotels! We previously saw details about Universal Stella Nova Resort and Universal Terra Luna Resort.
Now, new details have been revealed about another new hotel — Universal Helios Grand Hotel! The difference with this one? It gives you direct access to the Epic Universe park. Talk about a HUGE hotel perk!
Right now, the Universal hotels are pretty close to the parks with free transportation like buses and boats. However, this would be the first hotel in the entire resort with its own entrance into the theme park! Universal hotels also offer guests early entry into certain parks on certain days, so if Epic Universe is included, that would be a huge reason to stay here.
In the video with a first look at the park, Universal executives also briefly talked about the hotel saying it will have “500 rooms integrated into the park like no other theme park in the world.” Also, the Epic Universe website revealed that the hotel has a Mediterranean-inspired feel.
The hotel will connect to the Celestial Park land inside Epic Universe and it seems like the theming will be intertwined as well. “Celestial patterns and constellations” will be seen throughout the hotel — that reminds us a lot of what we heard about Celestial Park! Can you imagine the views from the rooms?!
While we await more details about the hotel itself, Universal did announce many details for Celestial Park. In a video, we got a sneak peek at the new dual-racing coaster, a unique take on a carousel, new restaurants, new shops, and special water features. It’s going to be…well…EPIC.
