New Loews Sapphire Falls Resort
at Universal Orlando Resort™
Universal Orlando’s fifth on-site hotel, Loews
Sapphire Falls Resort™, adds 1,000 guest rooms
and 115,000 square feet of meeting space. The
resort is connected to Loews Royal Pacific Resort™
creating the Loews Meeting Complex with a total
of 2,000 rooms and more than 247,000 square feet
of meeting space between both properties.
MAKO™ Surfaces in SeaWorld
Sea World® Orlando is now home to Orlando’s tallest,
fastest and longest coaster, Mako. Named for one of
the ocean’s fastest known sharks, Mako reaches heights
of 200 feet, and speeds of up to 73 mph over nearly
1 mile of steel track. Mako is quickly becoming one
of the top roller coaster experiences in central Florida.
The coaster is complemented by a newly themed two-acre plaza called Shark Wreck Reef, perfect for unique
private events. The area offers amazing underwater viewing
of sharks and other tropical fish at Shark Encounter, and
full service dining at Sharks Underwater Grill.
Disney Springs™ at Walt Disney World® Resort
Disney Springs™ at Walt Disney World® Resort is far more than a
slightly updated version of the former Downtown Disney location.
Over the last three years, Disney Springs™ has doubled in size,
growing from about 75 locations to over 150, making it an
unparalleled destination for attendee free time. With a collection of
new celebrity chef restaurants like Morimoto Asia, Frontera Cocina
by Rick Bayless and Art Smith’s Homecoming – many with venues for
private events – dining is second-to-none in Orlando. This waterfront
property – a vibrant and sophisticated mix of retail, restaurants and
entertainment spread throughout four distinct neighborhoods – is the
“place to be” for convention attendees to relax, refresh and reconnect.
Orlando’s Growing Foodie Scene
Orlando was named the No. 1 Best Foodie City in 2016 according to
WalletHub.com, confirming its growth as a foodie destination. Visitors
will enjoy several new dining experiences like the fantastical fare at the
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen™ restaurant, bar
and confectionary at Universal City Walk™ or dine among the stars at the
all-new Planet Hollywood Observatory with food creations by Guy Fieri.
Venture downtown to the new DoveCote to find Orlando’s newest local French
brasserie. In 2017, Circo Orlando will open next to Mango’s Tropical Cafe as
International Drive’s tallest restaurant, rising above the convention district.
New Sports Venues
The new Orlando City Soccer stadium
will open spring 2017 with a $110
Million, 25,000 seat facility in downtown
Orlando. Orlando will also become
the home of American tennis when the
United States Tennis Association (USTA)
opens its new headquarters in the Lake
Nona area January 2017, which will
encompass more than 100 tennis courts.
