  • I've never been a fan of amusement parks but today it has changed:) A great place for anyone but with children below 6 years I would not chose my opinion after observing other families it is definitely too early for kids 80% not to use. And being in such a magical place was to regret not use space in 100% Recommend entrance tickets 2 weeks for me it was the cheapest option, tickets one day does not make sense and are COD if you plan to visit the parks more than 1 time. What to eat too many burgers but this is America:) to eat well at Universal studio recommend Irish Bar across from the mummies, eating delicious something other than burgers and fries:) Employees throughout nice and helpful ...

  • I only give a point because they do not have a system that can streamline the long waits at attractions for people with disabilities, or at least I haven't had luck. After State more than half an hour at the Guest Service trying to explain the situation of my daughter and with certificate in hand, not I was offered no alternative. The only suggestion was that he rented a vehicle power to circulate through the Park. Opposite to Disney, where kindly offered us Disability Access Service, linking to the Magic Band and that was very useful. Is that other people has not happened them the same. Perhaps, it will depend on in the dedication of the staff on duty. Except for that, the Park is excellent and oriented especially to teenagers who are looking for strong emotions in the attractions.

  • I highly recommend getting the "FastPass" thing- or whatever they call it. It's more expensive, obviously, or comes free if you are staying at a Universal hotel (which we did). It makes the ride lines...  more »

  • UNIVERSAL STUDIOS WAS AMAZING! MY FAMILY AND I JUST VISITED IN AUGUST. MY HUSBAND AND SON DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE! THE RIDES ARE AMAZING. THE PARK IS CLEAN AND VERY NICE. MY FAMILY AND I PLAN TO GO BACK VERY SOON. MAYBE TWICE A YEAR, AFTER THE WONDERFUL TIME WE HAD. EVERYONE SHOULD TAKE THERE CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA. WAY TO GO UNIVERSAL!
  • What an Amazing Place to visit. They have the best attractions around Orlando. In our opinion. Roller Coasters, Swings, Go Carts, haunted house's, water rides,and the list goes on. Many Restaurants, and Candy factories, Live Entertainment, Several Shows throughout the Day and that's just the beginning. One of our favorite places was the Three Story Hard Rock Cafe. If ever giving the. Chance to visit universal Studios...Go for it...
  • I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS PLACE! it was incredible. Everything was just fun especially Diagon alley. It was so realistic! If you are not a fan of scary rides, well you're all sorted out as there are many 3D places or rides (minion mayhem, Jimmy Fallon show and loads more places.) If you are a fan of rides there are plenty including the Incredible Hulk ride and the mummy. You should also take a visit to universal islands of adventure (other theme park) and volcano bay (universal water park.)
  • There is a reason we pick this place and Universal Studios as a place to visit every May. The rides are amazing! The whole park has something for every member of my family to enjoy! The park is so clean and impressive. The staff are so friendly and treat you like they want your trip to be special. Even when my 12 year old wanted to ride the bigger rides, there was still plenty for me to take my younger two to do. We were in the park for 5 days, and we had such a blast! Express Passes are a must!
  • Great place, love rock the universe and the other great events. Good food! Ticket prices are more affordable than Disney. Good place for the kids, parking is 20 dollars. Only 1 real roller coaster that goes up high. More rides are aimed towards riding the movies. All in all a great experience. You will definitely enjoy this place.
