- Paddlefish’s rooftop deck
- Bull & Bear

Leu’s Movie Night
On the first Friday of most months, Leu Gardens sets up an outdoor movie screen and invites you to come to cuddle up on the lawn to watch a Hollywood flick. Fill a picnic basket with food, wine, and beer and stake out your spot on the lawn before watching a movie under the stars. Movies typically begin around 7:30 pm, but the gardens open at 6 pm. Most movies are PG-13. Food trucks and concessions with freshly-made popcorn are usually on the scene.
Sometimes a weekend staycation is the perfect couple’s pick-me-up. This year, Orlando is welcoming some charming new places for you and yours to unwind for a few nights. First up is the Dockside Inn and Suites at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort. The coastal-themed hotel is set to open in March, so you can look forward to relaxing at two pools (with a pool bar!) and a sandy beachfront in the near future.
Next, we have Disney’s Riviera Resort, the newest addition to the lineup up Disney Vacation Club Resorts. This Europen-inspired resort just opened, so be sure to check out its rooftop restaurant Topolino’s Terrace for some Riviera cuisine and a view.
JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek is set to open in February (Valentine’s staycation, anyone?!). The warm, welcoming resort will be complete with a luxurious spa, resort-style pool, unique restaurants, and a rooftop terrace that provides views of the theme park fireworks shows.
