You can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine at Mama Della’s Ristorante, or dine in the AAA Four Diamond Award winning Delfino Riveria, or any of the other six restaurants and lounges from casual to elegant. You need never dine at the same restaurant twice.

Just outside your door you’ll find the most heart-pounding rides and attractions ever created. At Universal Orlando, you will experience a Universe of Excitement at the number-one theme park in the world featuring an array of rides, shows, movie sets and attractions put you into your favorite scenes from your favorite movies.

Enjoy five uniquely themed islands at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, where the most innovative rides and cuttingedge attractions ever created challenge all your senses. Spend an evening enjoying an eclectic mix of themed restaurants, nightclubs, concert venues, shops, movie theaters and outdoor promenades at Universal City Walk. Or, if you prefer, you can take advantage of the on-site complimentary transportation and visit some of Orlando’s local area parks such as SeaWorld, Discovery Cove or cool off at the Wet ‘n Wild water park, not to mention Walt Disney World.

While you are getting pampered at the spa, playing a round of golf or enjoying a special dinner, no need to worry about your kids, they can be enjoying one of three theme swimming pools.

The NYSADA package this year includes: all registration fees, business sessions with top-notch speakers, a welcoming party and dinner, where we will actually close a large section of Universal Studios Theme Park, Chairman’s Reception and Banquet, golf tournament and alternative activity and a farewell reception.
