When your feet are tired and the Florida sun is a little too much, there is plenty to do indoors while you cool off. Try lounging in the lobby of Universal Studios Florida’s Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon or exploring the Discovery Center in Universal’s Islands of Adventure’s Jurassic Park.

    We just got back from 5 days at the Saffire Falls Resort. We all loved it. My 8 yr old like the resort pool better than Volcano Bay’s Wave pool!!! The staff is amazing and truly want you to enjoy every moment. Can’t wait to go back next year!
