Recently I had the opportunity to stay at a gorgeous hotel in Orlando, Florida – the Rosen Shingle Creek. To put it mildly, this property is huge and would make for the perfect place to stay should you be visiting a Disney park, Universal Studios or Universal’s Islands of Adventure, or if you are simply in town for a conference like I was. I enjoyed the Rosen Shingle Creek so much, I felt compelled to share this property spotlight with you. I think you will find it offers everything that one could need and so much more.

The Rooms

Rosen Shingle Creek | Ingenious TravelRooms are available with double queen beds or single king beds, but there are also hospitality suites, executive suites, Grande and Presidential suites as well.

Entrance to Diagon AlleyDiagon Alley is now open!

Universal Studios Orlando opened the highly anticipated The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley on July 8, 2014. Opening day hosted thousands of guests and the wait time for the Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts ride was seven (7) hours!

Diagon Alley is a must see for Harry Potter fans. When you first enter the area you’ll see the Knight Bus and Grimmauld Place. (Tip: Be sure to pay attention to the windows of number 12.) Entering Diagon Alley looks like it did in the movie after Hagrid “knocked on the bricks” showing the entrance to the alley. Once inside, you’ll feel like you stepped into the pages of the books.


There is so much to see in this 20-acre alley!
