20150620_124204

 

There is an award winning restaurant for lunch at, Islands of Adventure Theme Park inside Universal Orlando Resort®. It is called Mythos Restaurant® and you might just walk past it. Walk back by the where the rocks, waterfalls and ancient figures are carved into the side of the restaurant. There it is located in the Lost Continent part of the park just past Seuss Landing. Actually inside it looks like a cave underwater and is very mystic themed. It was a winning theme Park Restaurant in 2010 (3rd place), 2003-2009 (1st place). Information provided by, Theme-park insider. The kitchen is open so you can see the chef’s preparing your food! I think it is so fun to see the kitchen.

My son and I have eaten at Mythos Restaurant® several times and have not been disappointed. It is one of our favorite places to eat! This is a full-service restaurant that serves American fare at a reasonable price. The food and service is really incredible! There is also a really nice view of the park in the lower seats which include, The Incredible Hulk Coaster®. I love the view!

The butter for the bread has, Universal Orlando® on it. I think it is a wonderful detail to go with the scrumptious bread. This is a wonderful place to eat and I think you will really like it! Mythos Restaurant® is perfect on a hot day for air-conditioning, a table to rest those weary feet from walking, and fantastic food. Make sure and check it out on your next trip! Do not forget to make reservations since Mythos Restaurant® is only open for lunch and it fills up very quickly.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

CabanaBay1

 

I was pleasantly surprised about Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort! It is the one value resort on the property. I have never stayed at this resort before. This was my first time and I just really enjoyed it, loved the colors, the VO5 shampoo and the old-time alarm clock. The family suite at Cabana Bay Resort is about twice as large as a regular hotel room. It has a small living room with two chairs a pullout couch, television and a small little kitchen. The kitchen has a microwave sink coffee maker and also a small refrigerator. In the little kitchen there is also a small counter with two counter stools. In between the living room and the bedroom is a doorway that slides shut so the rest of the family sleeping in the living room has a privacy door. Everyone has to share one bathroom but there are three places for people to get ready. The first place is the has a toilet and a door but, is very small. The second place has a sink and a mirror. Then there is a separate room with a shower and bathtub combo with a sink in that room also.

For dining there is pizza delivery to the room and several other places to eat:

  • Bayliner Diner
  • Galaxy Bowl Restaurant
  • The Hideaway Bar & Grill
  • Starbucks®
  • Delizioso Pizza

There is also a couple of more places for drinks and cocktails:

  • Atomic Tonic
  • Swizzle Lounge

The theme at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort is a retro 50’s theme. The pools are extremely nice and include a lazy river. The bus service was very quick. Everything at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort was much more than I had expected for a value resort. The price is very reasonable but you do not receive the Unlimited Express Passes like you do at the other resorts on property! This is a very important perk of the other Hotels.
