Nickelodeon Hotel Could Return to Orlando, Florida

Nickelodeon Hotels could be making to a return to the Orlando market — and bringing back its world-famous slime bucket — as part of a development that would also introduce two new luxury hotel brands to the Florida market!

The kid-friendly brand operated a 777-room Nickelodeon Suites Orlando, The Nick, on Continental Gateway Drive from 2005-2017 before shutting it down and embarking on a $30 million renovation to rebrand it as Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites.

Although the hotel has been closed for several years, it is still in the hearts of many fans who have nostalgic feelings towards their stays there. Here is what you need to know about this new development for the Nickelodeon Hotel!

Back in January, it was reported that the Holiday Inn Orlando Suites – Water Park Hotel filed for bankruptcy after the effects and financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. This was surprising news as the hotel resides so close to many theme parks in the state. The Holiday Inn Orlando Suites is the former Nickelodeon Hotel, so this would be the second major hardship for that hotel property.

Nickelodeon Suites Resort opened in 2005, before closing its doors in May 2016.

Nickelodeon Resorts is one of three brands named in a promotional video briefly posted on social media Tuesday (Feb. 16) by an executive with The Everest Group of Companies, the Canadian developer behind the Everest Place mixed-use resort district on Kissimmee’s W192 tourism district. The branding could extend to the planned water park at Everest Place that would be adjacent to the kid-friendly hotel.

The developer took down the video after GrowthSpotter reached out for comment. Everest CEO Zafir Rashid said the video “should not have been posted and could have misinformation.“

Rashid previously told GrowthSpotter the company had agreements in place with three hotel flags to build separate and unique resorts with a combined total of 1,800 standard hotel rooms and condo hotel units on the property — all slated to open in 2023.

Experience Kissimmee CEO DT Minich said Nickelodeon would be a great addition to the tourism corridor, as will the other brands. “We’re just thrilled that there’s going to be some fantastic new product out there that we can sell,” he said. “Everyone I’ve talked to about Everest Group says they’re going to do this right.”

While the report goes on to say that once the video was removed the CEO of Everest Group said that this video should not have been posted and may not have been accurate. It is a good indication the Nickelodeon brand is in the minds of developers in the Orlando area.

Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts has a destination in Punta Cana, which opened in May 2016, and another opening in Riviera Maya, Mexico in June 2021. Both are operated by Karisma Hotels & Resorts as part of a long-term partnership with Nickelodeon international.

Here is how Nickelodeon describe their hotel experience:

"When Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts does all-inclusive resorts, you and your family experience all you can enjoy, all the time. Come indulge in all of our diverse and delicious dining options, kid and adult beverages, plus a full range of resort activities and entertainment. Have that second stack of pancakes for breakfast, then park yourself poolside while our friendly servers keep the icy drinks coming. Did the family work up an appetite snorkeling, building sandcastles, or getting their splash on at Aqua Nick? It’s a good thing there are plenty of healthy and delicious lunch options. And dinner is always delightful when every choice is a great choice!"

One of the resort's most popular suites is SpongeBob's iconic pineapple home.

It would be fantastic to see Nickelodeon re-enter the North American market as a fun, family-friendly resort option!

Nickelodeon used to have a considerable presence in Florida, including Nickelodeon Studios in Universal Studios, which served as the network's East Coast production hub as well as a tourist destination. The studios closed on April 30, 2005, leaving behind an incredible legacy. The original building structure still remains, although up until recently, it was the Blue Man Group Sharp Aquos Theatre (there still is a few Nickelodeon mementos lying around if your lucky enough to venture backstage).

'The Casagrandes' to Introduce New Lakota Character, Charles Little Bull

Meet Charles Little Bull: He's a role-model grad student in his twenties who wears his long hair in two braids. And today (Feb. 18), when Nickelodeon unveils his character on The Casagrandes, he'll become one of the first Lakota figures to appear in a major American animated-TV production!

His debut reflects Native American advocates' heightened campaigning to champion more positive, high-profile representation in media and news coverage. That's happening as they also push for sports teams to drop offensive mascots with stereotypical images of Indigenous people.

Consulting producer Lalo Alcaraz, who also worked on the Disney film Coco, has been an outspoken advocate for getting more Native Americans in film and television.

Little Bull, voiced by Native American actor Robbie Diamond, tutors one of the show's teen Latina characters, Carlota Casagrande. His first appearance comes in an episode titled “Undivided Attention," premiering Thursday, February 18 at 4:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

"Charles is a patient, encouraging, and positive tutor who never gives up on a student no matter how challenging," a Nickelodeon spokesperson told Axios in a statement. "Charles loves to learn, and when he’s not tutoring at the library, he’s hanging at the library  — he even has his own reserved table!"

The Casagrandes, which debuted in 2019, centers around an 11-year-old girl trying to survive in a big midwestern city. It's one of the first cartoons in the U.S. to feature a multigenerational Mexican-American family.

The spin-off from the network’s popular animation series, The Loud House, came as more networks were taking chances on Latino-themed shows.

Some activists are hoping other characters from the franchise, like Little Bull, get their own spin-off.

"We’re finally seeing a shift in Native representation in Hollywood and stories that center and include contemporary Native characters," Crystal Echo Hawk, founder and executive director of networking and advocacy group IllumiNative, told Axios.

She said she's hopeful Little Bull will be "the first of many Native cartoon characters on Nickelodeon."

The PBS cartoon Molly of Denali also premiered in 2019 and centered on an Alaska Native family.

That children's production focuses on a 10-year-old Athabascan girl with a video blog about life in rural Alaska. PBS said it was the first nationally distributed children’s series with a Native American lead.

From Looney Tunes to Peter Pan, earlier cartoons for years portrayed Native Americans using racist and stereotypical imagery. Often those characters didn't have names. Their tribal affiliations were rarely mentioned.

John Redcorn from the Fox cartoon series, The King of the Hill, was a Native American character portrayed as a loner in leather vests and windblown hair. His symbolism on the show was a topic of debate among pop-culture critics.

Oglala Lakota president Kevin Killer said he is excited Nickelodeon is highlighting native American culture.

“The ability to change the narratives around what we see on TV every day, what we watch, especially what we show our young people our children and you know I think its gonna be exciting, props to Nickelodeon”

Ramsey Naito, President of Nickelodeon Animation said “Our audience has loved the diverse characters, relatable stories, and rich animation found in The Casagrandes since the series debuted. The success of the show is due to the creative leaders who continue to showcase the love and laughter of this family, living in an environment that reflects the global world we live in today.”

Paramount Plus Slates May 2021 Premiere for 'iCarly' Revival

Jay Kogen, one of the producers of Paramount+'s upcoming iCarly revival, has revealed on Twitter that filming on the brand new series is set to commence in March 2021, and is slated to premiere on the streaming service in May 2021!

"They are filming in March and intend or premiering in May," Kogen revealed on Twitter:

The news follows the first details of the revival being revealed earlier this month. According to reports, the series will be set 10 years after the events of the original hit Nickelodeon series, in the modern TikTok era of social engagement. However, the focus will not be on Carly becoming a TikTok star, but rather it will explore her journey through her twenties alongside friends and family.

As we already know, Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress will all reprise their respective roles as Carly, Spencer, and Freddie, with two new characters set to be introduced to the revival: Carly’s new best friend and Freddie’s step-daughter.

Carly’s new best friend/roommate will be part of the LGBTQ+ community as a pansexual character who dreams of becoming a fashion stylist after her wealthy family lost all of their money. The character will also serve to push Carly out of her comfort zone as they confront day to day obstacles.

Freddie’s step-daughter is reported to be social media-obsessed, who sees the older Carly as washed up as well as competition to her small YouTube channel.

Jennette McCurdy is not expected to return as Sam, however, Kogen has revealed that producers have asked the actor for any amount of episodes she's willing to do.

Per how reports have described this revival, it seems that rather than focusing on Carly’s web series (which will more than likely still be part of the show to some degree), it will aim to appease the generation that grew up with these characters by having them explore modern problems that young adults face. That being said, from how roles such as Freddie’s teenage step-daughter are being set up, the series looks to be making itself open to a fresh, younger audience as well.

What also stands out is the inclusion of a prominent LGBTQ+ character. This is especially important in a genre of television where such representation has been very scarce until recent years. On Nickelodeon's part, the network has been including LGBTQ+ characters in hit shows such as The Legend of Korra, The Loud House, The CasagrandesDanger Force and It's Pony

In essence, this is what Hillary Duff and writer/producer Terri Minsky aimed to do for the Disney+ Lizzie McGuire reboot, television that approaches the struggles of adulthood while gearing towards the young-adults that grew up with the original program. First announced in 2019, the new Lizzie McGuire would go on to film two episodes before Minsky parted ways due to creative differences. It was later revealed that these differences stemmed form the show not being “family-friendly” enough for Disney+ with themes such as sex. Duff herself eventually plead Disney to move the series to Hulu, a platform that could host mature content for younger viewers with less restrictions. Love, Victor previously moved from Disney+ to Hulu for these similar reasons. Duff announced that no creative agreements could be made and that the project was officially cancelled last December.

It appears that this new iteration of iCarly will strive to get this concept right while opening the door for new fans to be introduced. With all the public commotion that came with Disney’s mishandling of their own legacy teen show, Paramount already has an example of what not to do. Paramount+ (formerly named CBS All Access) will also be free from the strict “family-friendly” rules felt on Disney+. Something that is sure to work in favor of both iCarly and its fans.

Filming is set to begin in March in Los Angeles with Jay Kogen (School of Rock, The Simpsons, Frasier) and Ali Schouten (Diary of a Future President, Champions, Merry Happy Whatever) signing on to develop the update. They also will executive produce and serve as co-showrunners. Miranda Cosgrove will, of course, also produce.

The yet to be titled iCarly revival will be exclusive to Paramount+, which is making a big splash with new content starting March 4 with the highly anticipated U.S. premieres of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run and SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years.

Fans can catch the original series on CBS All Access and Netflix!

4 Burning ‘iCarly’ Questions That Can be Answered in the Reboot

Nearly a decade after it said iGoodbye, iCarly is prepping for its modern-day return on Paramount+.

The hit Nickelodeon TV series signed off in 2012 and thanks to the upcoming reboot and old episodes on CBS All Access and Netflix, it’s conjuring up laughs and fond memories. Along with Carly (Miranda Cosgrov), Sam (Jennette McCurdy), and Freddie (Nathan Kress), fans rocked with Spencer (Jerry Trainor), Gibby (Noah Munck), Lewbert (Jeremy Rowley), T-Bo (BooG!e), Ms. Benson (Mary Scheer), and a host of other quirky characters.

With so many hilarious episodes in the vault and excitement for what’s to come, viewers are reminded of some lingering questions about iCarly that left many scratching their heads. Wouldn’t it be fun and mind-blowing if some of these were resolved?

What happened to Carly and Spencer’s mom?

It is one of iCarly’s greatest mysteries for fans and one that may not ever get screen time. What’s the backstory on the Shay siblings’ mom?

It’s no secret that Carly and Spencer lived on their own in that Seattle penthouse, but the only family members they communicated with were their dad and grandfather.  

When Grandpa tried to make Carly move to Yakima with him, it seemed like the decision was mostly left up to him and their father, Colonel Shay. And although Spencer and Carly occasionally spoke about their father, they never mentioned their mother.

Everyone knows Carly adores her dad, but fans would love to learn more about her mom.

What did the goat do to Carly on her birthday?

One of the running gags on the show had to do with a incident involving a goat on Carly’s birthday. Inquiring minds want to know what exactly happened that gave her the shivers.

“Don’t talk about what the goat did,” was the code. Whatever occurred at that petting zoo must have been a serious violation, but maybe twenty-something Carly will be ready to talk about it.

Will anyone ever get to meet Socko?

Spencer’s buddy had no shortage favors and gifts he was willing to dole out for his friend. Socko’s name came up countless times during iCarly’s run. But the invisible bestie was responsible for the motorcycle Spencer gave to Sam, an endless of array of colorful and bright socks, and even art supplies for Spencer’s flaming projects.

All fans have seen of Socko is a partial view of his arm during one episode. Some are suggesting a themed “iMeet Socko” special should drop when the reboot airs. Folks really want to meet Spencer’s generous friend — and the rest of his industrious family too.

Is Nevel locked up?

Nevel Papperman (Reed Alexander) never quite reformed his behavior on iCarly, and he last popped up in an episode of iCarly x Victorious spin-off Sam & Cat. There, he was caged in a hospital like Hannibal Lecter (along with "Crazy Steve" from Drake & Josh) and later broke free.

But was he ever caught? If not, Nevelocity and “rue the day” schemes may not be over and have the potential to reach adult-levels of brazenness. Or maybe he's followed his dreams and opening a men's haberdashery?

The unnamed iCarly reboot is reportedly in production, with filming slated to commence in March 2021. Actors Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress on deck to reprise their roles, and the series is pencilled in to premiere on Paramount+ in May 2021.

‘iCarly’ Spaghetti Tacos Recipe: How to Make the Unique Creation

There’s not a lot of mystery surrounding how to make the iCarly spaghetti tacos recipe that Spencer invented on Nickelodeon's beloved series. The interesting mashup dinner idea was first spotted in an early iCarly episode and made a return several times during the series.

Spaghetti tacos made a frequent appearance on iCarly, seen for the first time on the season 1 episode “iWill Date Freddie.” In the episode, Spencer (Jerry Trainor) prepares the Italian/Mexican dish for Freddie and his date. As he scooped the spaghetti into the taco shells, he sang, “Well, I’m cooking, I’m cooking things. Cooking things for people to eat. I’m cooking, I’m cooking things, things that people will chew.”

The tacos are seen in other episodes, most notably in the episode “iCook,” where Carly (Miranda Cosgrove), Sam (Jennette McCurdy), and Freddie (Nathan Kress) compete in a challenge against a famous chef. Their spaghetti tacos recipe in the competition included Peruvian Puff Peppers, a reference to Drake & Josh, another show created by iCarly creator Dan Schneider which also starred Cosgrove.

How to make spaghetti tacos, as seen on iCarly:

Trainor shared the spaghetti tacos recipe during a 2020 video for Cameo. The actor admitted that he had never made them before but pulled together the ingredients for the unique meal and was impressed with the final result.


- Ground beef
- Spaghetti
- Pasta sauce
- Taco seasoning packet
- Crispy taco shells
- Parmesan cheese

One of Trainor’s pro tips is to break the spaghetti in half before cooking it to make it easier to put into the hard taco shells. Trainor cooked the spaghetti in one pot while browning the ground beef in another pan. Once the meat was browned, he added a packet of taco seasoning and a little bit of water then boiled it for a few minutes. He also warmed up the spaghetti sauce in another pot and added it to the cooked spaghetti after it was heated.

Once all of the ingredients were prepared, Trainor then assembled the delicious meal by using tongs to place the spaghetti in the taco shell, topped it with a layer of taco flavored meat, and added a sprinkle of cheese. He shared one small change he would make: substituting cheddar cheese or a Mexican cheese blend rather than using parmesan.

iCarly spaghetti tacos get an upgrade

If you’re looking for a more sophisticated (and complicated) spaghetti tacos recipe, there’s a method for that, too.

In a 2015 Feast of Fiction cooking video, Kress stopped by to assist the hosts with making spaghetti tacos. “They are absurdly simple,” Kress explained. “You take some taco shells, you make some spaghetti … and you combine the two.”


- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 Italian sausage links
- 1 small diced onion
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce *

* Pronounced "WorcesterSHEER", btw. ;)

Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl and form the mixture into small meatballs. Place them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 14-18 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

As with Trainor’s recipe, Kress and the hosts cooked spaghetti, warmed the sauce, and combined the two. They then added the spaghetti and sauce to a taco shell and added the meatballs and cheese.

Have you ever made a spaghetti taco, or planning to now that you know how? Let me know in the comments!
