And, after opening December 5, 2019, find yourself caught in an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance—where the incoming laser fire of a towering AT-AT is matched only by the red crackle of Kylo Ren’s lightsaber.

Great value and position
We stayed at the Rosen for 28 days and couldn’t fault anything, the rooms are well furnished and clean. Another major tick for the Rosen is they do not charge a resort feel and the cost of staying there extremely reasonable. There is a small amount of construction on International Drive close to the hotel but it doesn’t affect the hotel at all and there is no noise.
It is convenient for Universal, Seaworld and Disney. The hotel is close to some good restaurants for breakfast, lunch and evening meals. I will definitely be staying again.
I enjoyed my stay. Centrally situated you have everything at your hands. I recommend it. I was there as solo traveler. I enjoyed it!!! You can go anywhere: Universal, Disney, good restaurants. I will go again and stay at the Rosen!!
