Universal Orlando Resort’s eighth hotel, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites, will open on March 17, 2020.



An extra-affordable Value category hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites will join its sister property at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort, Surfside Inn and Suites, which opened in June 2019. Dockside Inn and Suites will add 2,050 guest rooms to the Universal Orlando hotel portfolio by the end of 2020, featuring both standard rooms and spacious 2-Bedroom Suites – which can accommodate up to six people. At Dockside Inn and Suites, guests will unwind in a carefree escape that perfectly blends the cool, calm feeling of a beach retreat.



With rates starting at just £66 per night, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort combines the quality guests have come to expect from a Universal Orlando hotel with an extra-affordable price point – creating an experience that is unmatched in the Orlando area. Plus, hotel guests receive exclusive benefits, including Early Park Admission, complimentary transportation to and from the theme parks and more, creating a complete and seamless vacation experience. Dockside Inn and Suites will become the destination’s eighth property in partnership with Loews Hotels & Co, offering Universal Orlando guests a hotel choice for every style and budget.



Staying at a Universal Orlando hotel puts guests right in the action of three award-winning theme parks, including Universal’s Islands of Adventure – recently named TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice for #1 Amusement Park in the World for the fifth year in a row. With the value and convenience added by staying at Dockside Inn and Suites, guests can enjoy more time experiencing some of the most exciting and immersive theme park experiences, including The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Jurassic Park River Adventure, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D, and The Bourne Stuntacular – which makes its debut at Universal Studios Florida in spring 2020.

Multi Centre Tailor Made Holidays

Did you know that Florida sits just north of the Caribbean, roughly a --hour flight away by air to some of the best beaches in the world? Have you ever considered a twin-centre deal combining Florida & the Caribbean, well one good reason is that you can book an all-inclusive hotel in the Caribbean sitting directly on a white powder sandy beach, but the real attraction is the warm clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. At Kenwood Travel we have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to tailor-made holidays, and still have some availability this Easter. To get a taste of what is on offer visit our Easter Deals to the Caribbean & take a peak; if you like the idea of this possibility then call our specialists for more information with your desired dates and destinations. We could simply arrange the beach part of your holiday within the USA, but why not do even better and allow us to make your dream holiday come true.

"Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks" is a new nighttime spectacular that will debut Nov. 8, 2019, as part of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort.


The holiday extravaganza invites guests to experience the magic of Christmas by painting the sky with fireworks and transforming Cinderella Castle into colorful holiday scenes.

In the new show, Minnie invites you to take in a sparkling, yuletide fireworks display as the sky above Cinderella Castle brightens to the tunes of “Deck the Halls” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” The fireworks show is exclusive to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which guests can attend on select nights November 8 through December 22, 2019.

On Friday 1 November, rescue teams from SeaWorld Orlando and Clearwater Marine Aquarium Research Institute, in partnership with U.S. Fish and Wildlife, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and the National Marine Mammal Foundation, responded to the call to help a distressed manatee on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and transport the animal to SeaWorld for additional specialised care.


The sub-adult female manatee was found in an enclosed lagoon and was not able to find its way back to the ocean. Weighing 856 pounds with a length of 261 cm, the manatee was suffering from minor skin abrasions and was slightly underweight. She was relocated to SeaWorld Orlando where she was given a full health assessment by the SeaWorld veterinary team, followed by a period of rehabilitation before she is returned to the wild.

US Fish and Wildlife Service Florida Manatee Recovery Lead Teresa Calleson said, “The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is extremely appreciative of the efforts of SeaWorld, Clearwater Marine Aquarium Research Institute, and the other conservation partners from South Carolina to Florida who stepped up quickly to help this young female manatee in need. As a result of their efforts, this manatee will get a second chance to contribute to the wild population following rehabilitation.”

SeaWorld is a member of the Manatee Rescue and Rehabilitation Partnership (MRP) and worked with the other organisations to help rescue the manatee. The MRP is a cooperative group of non-profit, private, state, and federal entities who work together to monitor the health and survival of rehabilitated and released manatees. Information about manatees currently being tracked is available at www.manateerescue.org.

The Florida manatee is at risk from both natural and man-made causes of injury and mortality. Exposure to red tide, cold stress, and disease are natural problems that can affect manatees. Human-caused threats include boat strikes, crushing by flood gates or locks, entrapment and entanglement in or ingestion of fishing gear.

Gather your family and meet your festive friends at SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, taking place from 23 November to 31 December. For five weeks only, the park is transforming into a winter wonderland with more than 3 million sparkling lights.



Experience award-winning entertainment, from the ALL-NEW Sesame Street Christmas Parade to seasonal shows like O Wondrous Night; rub noses with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer; or head to Wild Arctic and visit Santa himself. Also NEW this year, park-goers have the added chance to dine with jolly old Saint Nick over a sumptuous festive meal with the help of his Kitchen Elves. Don’t miss the unforgettable Christmas Celebration you can only find at SeaWorld.

Christmas Shows
  • Returning for another year of festive fun, guests can immerse themselves in the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at Rudolph’s ChristmasTown. Stroll past life-size story book vignettes featuring the classic tale, and meet beloved characters including: Rudolph, Clarice, Bumble and Yukon Cornelius.
  • In O Wondrous Night, enjoy a live nativity complete with more than 30 carols, life-sized puppets and animals in a spectacular Christmas favourite based on The Christmas Story.

  • Experience the power and beauty of killer whales in our nighttime Christmas show: Miracles. From the sweeping vocal majesty of a unique soundtrack to the visual majesty of SeaWorld’s killer whales, Miracles will take you on a stirring voyage into the heart of the festive season.
  • Christmas comes to life on a stage of ice, jewels and lights as skaters dazzle and delight in a show-stopping, ice skating extravaganza. A sea of sparkling trees and towering fountains dancing in the background come together to create a don’t-miss experience for the season that the entire family will enjoy.
  • As part of SeaWorld's transformation into a winter wonderland, don't miss the all-new Sesame Street Christmas Parade, with fantastic floats decorated for the celebration. Excitement is also running high for Sea Lion High’s Christmas pageant - join the students and faculty of Sea Lion High for their hilarious new Christmas Special.



Sights to See
  • Take a stroll through a wintery, watery wonderland immersed in a sea of twinkling Christmas trees that sparkle to music as they light up the water in Sea of Trees. Dazzling images come to life on over 100 trees, including a giant glistening centrepiece that towers 70 feet above the water. Walk along the water’s edge for some Christmas shopping at the Shoppes at Waterfront as a magical flurry of snow falls over SeaWorld Orlando while Christmas sounds and smells fill the air.

SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration Offerings – Event Days: 23-25, 29 November, 1-2, 6-9, 13-16, 20-31 December
  • Be sure to stop by Santa’s North Pole Village, where Santa’s Little Helpers are the furriest friends you’ll ever meet! Join Santa’s elves and this festive team of adopted dogs, cats, birds, rats and even pigs as they work together, play together, and create heart-warming Christmas memories in an all-new SeaWorld Pets Ahoy experience. Guests of all ages can also share wishes and dreams with Santa Claus while exploring SeaWorld’s Wild Arctic this Christmas. Experience amazing animal encounters and a heart-warming visit with Santa in a festive adventure.
  • Next, nestled along the park’s Bayside Pathway, The Christmas Market features festive entertainment and delicious culinary delights. Complete with playful elves, a charming model train village and seasonal entertainment, the market is the centrepiece of SeaWorld’s Christmas event. Plus, relaxation is in order near the warm glow of the fire pit with a Christmassy cocktail while experiencing a wonderful view of the vibrant Sea of Trees.
