Whether you want a mild or wild spring break, Orlando has lots to offer. New theme park attractions and food festivals mean excitement is just around the corner. As you plan your Orlando spring break adventures, here are the top 10 things to do during spring break.

10. Theme Park Thrills

This spring break, you can be one of the first to ride Ice Breaker, the soon-to-be newest roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando. Perfect for thrill seekers, this steel coaster features a 93-foot-tall spike that will have you curving at a 100-degree angle! Ice Breaker will open in February 2022. (Here’s a cool unofficial recreation.)

Continue exploring newly unveiled rides at Universal’s Islands of Adventure with VelociCoaster where you become a part of the pack and run through the jungle with other Velociraptors. There’s never a dull moment on this wild roller coaster!

If you are looking for something a little more chill instead of a thrill, try out the new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride at Disney World’s EPCOT. Shrink down to the size of a rat and follow Chef Remy along on an exciting 4D adventure.

9. Shop ‘Til You Drop

If shopping sounds like your ideal spring break vacation, then plan to spend some time at Disney Springs. Here you’ll find the perfect gift and souvenirs.

In addition to shopping, Disney Springs provides live entertainment every evening and fun dining options. Consider Pizza Ponte where you can enjoy Sicilian-style pizza or The Edison, a classy eatery with upscale cuisine.

If you’re looking for more name brands, visit the Mall at Millenia. From GameStop to Gucci, this mall has all your shopping needs. If you want an outdoor mall shopping experience, try Orlando Outlet Marketplace. This outdoor mall is located only 5 minutes away from Rosen Inn.

8. Play Like the Pros

Practice your golf swing at our 18-hole Shingle Creek Golf Club, a championship golf course located at Rosen Shingle Creek. This course is the work of the Arnold Palmer Design Company. Book that tee time now before the other golfers on spring break get to it first.

After playing your own round, cheer on some of the world’s best golfers at the Arnold Palmer Invitational just minutes away.

Now it’s time to put another type of driving skill to the test at Andretti Indoor Karting and Games. A multilevel indoor track and powerful SODI RTX karts give you an authentic race experience you won’t find anywhere else.

7. Spring Break Classic: Relax at the Beach

One of the top places to visit during spring break is the beach. Sunbathers and surfers alike head out to the shore to soak up some sun during their vacation. Lucky for you, Florida has plenty of beaches.

The closest beach to Orlando is Cocoa Beach. Learn to surf at Cocoa Beach Surf School, then practice your skills on the water. You’ll be a pro in no time.

Another option on the other side of Florida is Clearwater Beach. As the name boasts, this beach has beautiful, clear water and white, sandy beaches. Pull up a chair or lay out a towel to enjoy this gorgeous beach.

6. Explore I-Drive Favorites

Still looking for thrills? Try indoor skydiving at iFLY. An indoor wind tunnel lets you experience skydiving in a safe, controlled environment.

After all that excitement, head next door to cool off at ICEBAR Orlando. Staff will provide you with a thermal coat and gloves, which you’ll need since everything in here is made of ice, even the glasses. Next, head to the Fire Lounge to warm up with some snacks and drinks. This is truly an experience you won’t forget.

Another International Drive favorite is the phenomenon of escape rooms. This is the perfect opportunity to test your mental fortitude.

There are many rooms to visit with different themes and skills of difficulty. If you are celebrating spring break with family or a group of friends, this is an especially great activity where you can have fun and find out how well you work together under pressure!

5. Party Like There’s No Tomorrow at Mardi Gras

Live it up this spring break at Universal Orlando Mardi Gras! Bring your beads and head to this Mardi Gras celebration to enjoy parades, concerts, and more. Watch as dazzling floats pass you by or sing along with your favorite artists at the live concerts.

All the partying got you a little hungry? Try some authentic New Orleans food and specialty drinks around Universal to get into the Mardi Gras mood.

4. Wine and Dine

Want to add some wine to your dine? Try out Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant for an unforgettable experience. With so many wines to choose from, try a wine flight to enjoy multiple. They also have a variety of different food options and wine pairings to go with each one.

If you’re feeling lazy during your spring break, there’s no need to leave Rosen Inn for food when we have our own delicious restaurant. The chefs at Shogun Japanese Steakhouse cook and entertain on a hibachi grill right in front of you. You can also enjoy sushi, appetizers, and drinks.

Insider Tip: Our other Rosen Hotels & Resorts have great dining options as well!

3. Indulge in Food Festivals

Is your dream spring break trip getting to snack on a lot of different types of food? Then we have the festivals for you!

At the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, not only are there topiary displays and live entertainment but there are also some tasty eats. Festival food booths are placed all around World Showcase to give you a little taste of different types of cuisine.

There is a similar event at SeaWorld called the Seven Seas Food Festival. Dine on a multitude of eats, drinks, and craft beers. There is something for everyone here.

If you are a fan of delicious food, you don’t want to miss these festivals!

2. Explore the Outdoors this Spring Break

Orlando isn’t all theme parks. There are so many great activities in the outdoors as well.

Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park has a variety of outdoor activities for you to enjoy during your spring break vacation. Climb through the forest across bridges, swings, ropes, nets, and more. After testing your strength in the obstacle courses, head to the zip line for a thrilling ride through the trees.

Want to take your adventure out on the water? Wild Florida has the airboat tour for you. Glide along the swampy wetlands of Florida while you try to spot alligators. After searching for alligators on the boat, head to the Gator Park, which is included with your tour.

1. Spend the Day at Volcano Bay

Look out your Rosen Inn room window, and you might spot Universal’s Volcano Bay.

Take some time to cool off here after all your spring break excitement. There are so many fun slides and pools to enjoy, you’ll never run out of fun. Try out the Ko’okiri Body Plunge in the volcano, you can’t miss it!

Once you have had your fill of water slides, relax at Waturi Beach. Enjoy the view while soaking in the sun.

Between all your spring break adventures, you’ll want a safe, comfortable place to relax. At Rosen Inn you’ll enjoy a pool, several restaurants, and even a mini-market, all within walking distance of your spacious guestroom. Plan your spring break getaway today!

Rosen Inn, the closest Rosen hotel to Universal Orlando Resort, is excited to announce it is supporting National Plan for Vacation Day (NPVD), the annual day for Americans to plan their vacation for the entire year at the start of the year, on January 26.

Though many Americans are not ready or able to take a trip just yet, there is a wealth of information that says simply planning a vacation can increase happiness. In fact, 97% of survey respondents say having a trip planned makes them happier—and that’s exactly what we will encourage Americans to do this year.

NPVD is joining forces with the Let’s Go There initiative to encourage Americans to still plan—or even book—future vacations, or to simply keep their travel flame lit and dream of their next getaway. Let’s Go There is led by a coalition of businesses and organizations, including many of the most recognizable U.S. brands from both within and outside the travel sector. Rosen Inn is proud to be included in this coalition. The straightforward mission of Let’s Go There is perfectly aligned with NPVD: As you plan your future trips, the travel industry is ready to safely welcome you back—when you are ready.

In 2020, the constraints of the pandemic resulted in Americans using, on average, just 6.8 earned vacation days for travel. Survey data shows that 84% of Americans are excited to plan a vacation in the next six months, indicating an impending surge in travel demand once conditions improve. With so many great travel deals to be had, savvy vacation planners who are able to book future trips now would be wise to take advantage of these offers—before demand picks up.

Importantly, Rosen Inn is encouraging Americans to continue to adhere to healthy travel practices—whether one is planning a vacation in the short term or for later this year. U.S. Travel Association’s Travel Confidently toolkit has a wealth of resources and guidance to encourage safe and healthy travel, which includes wearing a mask, frequent hand washing, maintaining physical distance when possible and staying home if feeling sick.

This year’s NPVD is taking place amid challenging times, but we can still look forward to—and plan for—brighter days. On January 26, use the hashtag #PlanForVacation and tell us where you’re dreaming of traveling to next.

Each New Year, we resolve to improve by adopting a healthier lifestyle, but sometimes our best intentions are hard to keep while on vacation. This year, don’t let vacation be the excuse that lets you slide on improving your body, mind, and spirit. Keep your fitness resolution by sticking to these helpful tips.

Our property is less than a five minute drive from Universal Orlando® Resort, but why drive when you can walk? Sidewalks and crosswalks connect you to the theme parks and keeps your family safe from bustling traffic. The walk takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

Don’t forget your favorite wearable fitness tracker while visiting the parks. The latest editions of iPhone and Android have fitness tracking software, so keep your smartphone on you. By tracking your steps and calories burned, you’ll have a better understanding of your fitness levels on a daily basis.

Is a relaxing day at the hotel in store for you? Check out our 24-hour fitness center to meet your recommended 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise. Swimming is also, without doubt, an effective way to burn calories. Swimming in our seasonally-heated swimming pool will relax joints and muscles worn out from high-impact theme park activities and still is an effective form of fitness training.

At Rosen Inn, we care about your health and want your resolutions to be successful.

Cheers to your health!

Theme parks definitely highlight any visit to Central Florida. The first time you walk into a theme park, all you probably want to do (and only have time to do) is ride the rides. After you’ve tackled the roller coasters and other thrill rides, is it worth visiting the parks again? Yes it is! Theme parks are usually packed with hidden treasures easily missed during first visits.

If you’re looking for fresh thrills for your second (or third) trip to the parks, here are a couple of ideas for your return visit.

See the shows. This includes stages shows, street shows, and parades. Some theme parks have a nightly fireworks display or sendoff shows that you might have overlooked or missed during the first visit.

Stage ride photos. Rides tend to take photos on big drops. Plan a pose for a hilarious group photo. Search for funny photo ideas online. However, use good judgement and keep it clean. Offensive photos are often not made available for purchase.

Participate in scavenger hunts. Some parks have their own scavenger hunts; some are created by theme park enthusiasts and posted online. Hint: Universal Studios® has a Minions Scavenger Hunt.

Interact with characters. Characters at the parks will usually play along with you. (Just be nice and keep it classy for the children.) Silly poses with superheroes and famous characters make for the most memorable pictures.

Check out the bloggers online who discuss where to find each theme park’s hidden treasures and what other fun activities exist for you to enjoy. We hope this blog helps sparks some ideas and research. Now get out there and make some great memories!

Kon’nichiwa! (Hello!) Do you and your family crave a little more than the average sit-down dining experience? Shogun Japanese Steakhouse, located in our hotel, brings much more than a meal to the table. It is not uncommon for our guests and visitors to leave with a new favorite hot-spot, or shall we say, “hot-teppan,” a word play on the teppanyaki cooking method used by our Shogun chefs. Be astounded as they display an entertaining show of flips and tricks with a little side of humor while cooking for you and your family. Shogun Japanese Steakhouse is perfect for group dinners and gatherings as well. Give our specialty yum-yum sauce a taste and let our chefs serve a dinner to remember. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to dinner. Coming soon: Shogun will have a new sushi and sake bar!
