UPDATE:  The contest has ended and Yulia (@thefoodiemiles) is the winner of this great Universal Orlando Resort vacation package. Congratulations Yulia! 

You all know that I’m a big fan of Universal Orlando Resort. From the three theme parks (including the newly opened Volcano Bay water theme park) to the CityWalk entertainment area to the onsite hotels, I think they are aces when it comes to the guest experience.

Today I’m excited to announce a contest that I’m running on my Instagram account – a giveaway for a package to Universal Orlando.

Before you head on over there, here are the details:

The Prize

Two 3-Day tickets to Universal Orlando Resort parks, including Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay! Plus, a 3-Night stay for two at one of at one of Universal Orlando Resort’s onsite hotels.

How to Enter

Head over to Instagram and follow me there, if you’re not already. (If you don’t have an Instagram account, just follow the easy instructions to set one up.)

Like the photo (that’s either a tap on the heart or a double tap on the photo itself), and in the comments tag a friend that you’d want to take with you to Universal Orlando.

And because I know you really, REALLY want to win this prize, there are a couple of additional ways win this package. Several of my fellow Universal Orlando Resorts Blog Squad Ambassadors are also giving away the same sweepstakes package. If you want to enter more than once, click over to their accounts and follow their instructions.
