Universal Orlando Resort is constantly making updates to enhance its product.
If you visit Universal’s Islands of Adventure or Universal Studios Florida, you’ll notice several different areas with construction walls up as they undergo refurbishments. Right now, Universal Orlando has two major attractions undergoing refurbishments in Revenge of the Mummy (not set to open until late summer 2022) and Jurassic Park River Adventure, which is set to open later this month.
In addition, Universal Orlando just recently closed Shrek 4-D permanently and we can see Minion-themed construction walls around the attraction hinting at what is next to come to the building.
But, there’s not just construction going on at the theme parks.
Hard Rock Hotel, one of the preferred hotels at Universal Orlando Resort, is undergoing major refurbishments to its exterior building. The hotel has scaffolding around a portion of its exterior and will be undertaking the project by section, but still recognized on its website that the construction could impact the stay of Guests who are planning a stay in the near future.
We’re making enhancements to the exterior of the building that are part of our commitment to amp up the product we offer to you, as our guest. The work will be done section by section and we will work hard to minimize the impact on your stay at Hard Rock Hotel.
Hard Rock Hotel is one of Universal’s preferred hotels. Guests who stay at Hard Rock are giving complimentary Universal Express Unlimited to skip the regular line (valid theme park admission required).
