Last week I was lucky enough to get invited to go to Universal Orlando with ten of my favorite bloggers for a Universal Orlando Girl’s Getaway. I’m sure like a lot of people I never thought about having a girl’s weekend at Universal Orlando but I have to tell you that Universal Orlando CityWalk has all the elements you’d want for a fun-filled time with all of your BFF’s. From the amazing food options, to the shopping to the nightlife Universal Orlando CityWalk has it all for the perfect mommy and wife break.
The dining options at Universal Orlando CityWalk are top-notch. They definitely have something that will fit any taste from fast food to fine dining. While there though we stuck with the sit down places to eat. For me I enjoyed being able to sit down in a restaurant and take my time to enjoy a meal and drinks without the worry of one or more kids deciding to act up.
Our first night at Universal Orlando we got the chance to eat at The Cowfish. It is a sushi, burger and bar place. I am not going to lie. I was a little leery of heading here. Sushi is not my cup of tea but I am definitely a burger, fries and milkshake kind of girl. I ended up really enjoying the fusion of the two vastly different food types though.
The classic Americana food combined with Asian food and flare made for some delicious appetizers, unique entrees, and out of this world desserts and drinks. Anyplace that makes spiked milkshakes, Parmesan, truffle fries and sushi-burger combo bento boxes is a must try!
Of course the night doesn’t end after dinner when you are having a girl’s weekend! Perish the thought! Why opt for sleep without a husband hogging the bed or a kid kicking you all night when you can stay up late and have fun? We did just that nightly at our favorite night spot, CityWalk’s Rising Star Karaoke. I am not a fan of karaoke. I can’t carry a tune in a bucket and usually find karaoke boring to watch and listen to. Rising Star takes karaoke to a whole other level though. People get to go up on real stage complete with an announcer, full band, backup singers/dancers and light guys to make them look like stars. It was such a blast!
Now, no girl’s weekend would be complete without some retail therapy. The family needs souvenirs and you of course will just need some presents to celebrate your own awesomeness. Aside from the Universal Studios shops and merchandise you would expect to find at Universal Orlando CityWalk there are also a lot of fun little shops with unique items, clothing stores, tattoo parlors and of course the much-needed caffeine jolt from Starbucks. The lovely ladies with me below are Robin from Masshole Mommy and Alice from Thrill of the Chases!
