Great experience but costly to tourists Aug 04, 2012
I do highly recommend going to universal studios if in the orlando area but, a few things to keep in mind: get there early as you can, it fills up fast! Also, do invest the extra money for the express passes, you can spend hours and hours in line for just 1 attraction otherwise!!!! I also suggest buying the all day eating pass...a bottle of water there can be as high as $4.00!!! If you can bear bringing a backpack or something like that,do so. Bring your own drinks...not alcoholic!!!!

Please also purchase the 2 or 3 day both park tickets also, very cost effective and you can spend 1 whole day at each park and still not see everything. If you are staying at a hotel close to the park, take advantage of their free shuttles to and from the parks!!!! This alone can save you 20 to 30 dollars in parking fees and the aggravation!!! I definately plan on returning here this year in late september and early october!!!! Have fun!!!

so much fun Mar 30, 2011
I went to many parks in orlando but this one is simply amazing, first because it s newer than the disney world parks and you can feel it around you. Second the attractions are great and really more for grouwn ups, third because two minute walk away is an other park, island of adventure.

Macy's Christmas Parade Mar 16, 2011
It was kind of chilly in December in Orlando. We did enjoy all of the rides and free shows. It was well worth it. At night they have a bar scene as well that was o.k. If you had an arm band you did not have to pay cover to get into the places. I forgot where we got ours from. Ah, if you came a little early you also got in for free.

I went down there with my friend and his girlfriend during our

christmas break. We were there for new years. It was a blast. There

were a lot of people but the park is large enough that it isn't to bad. The Rides:

The rides are neat. Universal studios has rides modeled after big name

movies like: Jurrasic Park, Back to the Future, Jaws, The Mummy,

Twister. Some of the rides are a bit lame but others are ones you just

want to go on over and over again. The other park, Islands of

Adventures, has the park split up into different themed sections. Each

section has one big thrill ride and a bunch of smaller rides. The Food: The

food is actually cheap and good. Both parks offer this option of all

you can eat for $18. You pay the $18 and you can eat at 3-4 designated

locations as many times as you wish. The choices are limited and you

get sick of them after a few days but it saves money. You get to choose

from burgers, pizza, chinese food, italain food (Pasta stuff), fried

chicken. This is the best way to go if you plan on eating at least 2

meals. If you pland on eating just once then this is not worth the

money. Tips: If you

end up going there during a busy time of the year, GET the Express Pass

Plus. For $10 you get to skip the line at any ride. You can do this

once per ride. It sucks that it is only once but at least you will get

to go on all the rides.You can get away with going multiple times since

some of the people will not stamp your card and you can just keep going

through. If you stay at the Universal Studios

hotel you can skip the line as many times as you want with the room

key. This is a great plus but the hotel is expensive so we stayed at a

sleep inn just 2 blocks from the park.

Another theme park, but we decided to take a break from

Disney and head to Universal Studios for the day. If you have time to

spare then feel free to visit, but our opinion is that it isn't really

a patch on Disney. Oh, and you'll be lucky if everything works as they

seem to take rides and restaurants out of commission willy nilly.

Highlights are the overall decor, which is very well done, as well as

the Men in Black and Shrek 4-D rides.
