"You saved Dad's Birthday!"
August, 2016 NEW
After losing my mom 2 months ago, I was trying to find a special way to celebrate my dad's 76th birthday that I could fit into a very tight budget. I found reasonable tickets though Reserve Orlando to attend Universal Studios Adventure Island and I still had money left for food and drinks while at the park. Thanks for the BEST DAY EVER.
Tip: Start riding rides at the back of the park first and work your way to the entrance.

"Great park"
August, 2016 NEW
Pricey, but so much fun. I had 16 year old (yo), 12 yo, 6 yo, and 4 yo . We had a great time, we ended up paying a lot more for upgraded tickets, we didn't realize the attractions of the 2 parks, I knew there was 2 parks but thought the island of adventure was just Harry Potter world bought only a base ticket for 1 park, so only wish I would have understood, clearly my fault.
Tip: Plan to upgrade and buy express pass so you don't waste time standing in lines. We covered both parks in 1 day with the express passes

August, 2016 NEW
We had such a great day at US, particularly the Harry Potter part. Could write a book on how cool it was. Used the US app to keep up to date on wait times for the rides. Highly recommend it. We also took advantage of single rider lines which cut wait times in half. Awesome park, shade and AC available regularly, and my whole family had a blast.
Tip: Get there early. Get the US app. Don't waste your money on the speed pass.

July, 2016
We wanted to make this 2016 trip for our niece a memorable one, so we decided that Universal studios will be the cherrycon top. It was definitely the best decisions, we felt welcomed by the employees, the lines were not torturous, considering the temp was 101°. The fans and mist made the wait comfortable. Willl be making an other trip, but to both parks, using the site reserveorlando.com
Tip: Make in the park early, amd stay till close, leaving Universals parking lot was a hassle.

Each Ride that we did was amazing. The fans with mist made it easy to stand in long lines.

Only fall back is it is reallly really hot outside to wait for hours for 3mins ride.

All rides were amazing this new King kong ride which may visit again since it is still not opened but it looked spectacular from outside.

Harry Porter Rides were great and butter beer is delicious.
Tip: Be prepaid to wait in line and count those timining when you plan a trip of days.

"Universal Orlando"
June, 2016
This was our eighth trip to Universal and Island of Adventures. It is tradition for our family to take a vacation together. Our 28 year old daughter and 26 year old son still vote on Universal Orlando every time. We love to stay on site and have Express Passes. We have stayed at Hard Rock, Royal Pacific, and Portifino Bay. Each hotel has it's own charm and all are wonderful! We love Universal!
Tip: Staying on site makes it much easier with Express Passes, easy access to parks by walking scenic routes, free boat trips or "rickshaw" rides.

"Vacation 2016"
June, 2016
Third time to Universal Orlando for me and my family, our favorite vacation destination. We may not go every year, so we can have a little change up, but me and my daughter most definitely could go year round if possible. Nothing bad I could say. It is a wonderful amusement park for me in general. I have a fear of heights and can not do tall rides. Universal is tops for me. With a numerous amount of interactive and 3D rides, anyone with like fears can have a blast also. Movie and entertainment tie-ins are great. Universal Studios with the mock up movie set/scene areas are great to test your memory of movie locations. Character meet and greets are fun for children. There are meal plans available which makes meals affordable.
Tip: Check weather before you leave for temperature outlooks. Trust me early spring does not guarantee warm temps. Also, take extra change of clothes for small kids to the parks.

My husband and I went for our honeymoon and had the best time at Orlando Studios. We had such a good time my husband wants to go back every year for our anniversary! We loved how quickly the lines went and how well the staff dealt with the immense crowds. We've only ever been to Six Flags and in comparison we loved Orlando just because of how well we got through the lines.

I wanted to take my boys on a real family vacation. A few of my cousins and I started combing the internet for deals to Universal Studios. Your site had the best deals! We went for two days. We went to Island Adventure and Universal it was so much fun. I called with a question. The representative I spoke to was so nice and helpful. I have already passed your site info on to other friends looking to go in January. We will visit this site again.
Tip: Children under the age of 9 shouldn't go to Island Adventure, between the height and the level of scardy catness it is not for them.

This by far us my families favorite vacation. We visited Orlando for 5 days. We spent time at universal studios and island of adventure. The vacation package was very affordable and full of things for all ages in my party. Orlando itself had a lot to offer my family while there. We pre-planned activities before we arrived which made the vacation more organized and enjoyable! We definitely will be returning 2016! ???????? reserve orlando
Tip: Having a list of activities in the parks and outside the parks made our trip. We were able to plan prior to arriving. This way we saved money because we knew ahead of things taken place and we were more prepared

"Girls Day at Universal"
October, 2015
This was one of the most successful trips to Universal Studios to date. I was skeptical of using reserve Orlando but my fears were put to rest with the ease of obtaining my ticket at the front kiosk. I was able to put in my confirmation code and easily access the park (purchased a two park hopper pass). The indicated wait times at each attraction were accurate with some being even less time than stated. Overall my experience was great!
Tip: I highly recommend purchasing the two park pass so you can ride the Hogwarts Express between the parks. Also, be prepared to obtain a locker in front of the attractions if you carry a bag or have any articles with you. The staff and park are very stern about these items not coming on the rides.

Harry Potter was the most amazing park I have been to. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and the park made the books and movies come alive. The rides were unbelievable and really made you believe you were there. My only regret is that we only spent one day at Universal. It definitely takes more that one to do both parks. We didn't do anything other than Harry Potter and I wished we had. We are definitely going back in the next couple of years and spending more days at Universal.

I thought the rides at Universal - especially Dragon Challenge, Gringott's and Hogwarts -blew away anything we rode at that other park nearby. Another thing I appreciated is your express ride being available once/day for each ride, whenever, instead of having to schedule only a certain amount of rides beforehand - much more flexible and fun. On our next visit to Orlando we're definitely going to spend more time at Universal.
Tip: Try the butter beer!

"Great Time"
February, 2015
Had a great time in Orlando. Best time is at dawn if you're from out of town. The heat can be overwhelming. Universal studios is not really for small children but is a great time. Over all I loved it. Can't wait to go back.
Tip: Stay hydrated & make sure all batteries are full to capture the memories

"Universal Studios Side Only, Not Adventure Side"

Don't Go On Friday.....PACKED!!
Tip: Get The Express Pass If You Plan On Going To Only One Park. It's 34.95 And Good For One Park, One Ride Only, But Worth Not Waiting In Line For Over An Hour On Some Attractions.

"The absolute best!"
February, 2015
I've been to Universal twice now, and plan on coming back for more soon! The new Harry Potter attractions are fantastic, walking through the entrance to Diagon Alley is just like Harry seeing it for the first time in the first film.
Tip: 1) Lines are long, express passes are expensive, but so worth it. 2) Express passes don't usually apply for the Forbidden Journey or Escape from Gringotts.

I always have a great time at Universal. This was my son's first time, he was 8. He was SOOOO excited. He can't wait to go back. We went the 3rd week of July in the middle of the week which was perfect because most of the rides were easy to get on. It was only the most popular rides that took some time to get on but it wasn't too bad. It's a nice, clean park.
Tip: Go in the middle of the week. Find somewhere close to stay that has shuttle service.

We absolutely loved this parks! We really enjoyed every game we went. All the roller coaster have an amazing adrenaline injection, seriously all of them but the best ones are the dragon challenge (island of adventure) and the rock coaster (florida). We do not want to forget the minions! Neither the spiderman 3D.. All great! By the way you shuld taste the turkey drumstick: delicious!

"Awesome time during Harry Potter weekend!"
February, 2015
I've been to Universal many times and it's always a fun time. It happened to be Harry Potter weekend this last visit (I didn't plan it that way!) and the lines were still very reasonable. The whole Harry Potter section is amazing and the new Diagon Alley is spectacular even for the non-fans.
Tip: Love buying tickets through Reserve Orlando so I can use Paypal!

It was an awesome time. Keep in mind to limit your baggage and such at Universal since they ask you to use locker for most of the rides and it is an hassle. But it is worth it. No need to buy fast pass since there are not much rides at each park you can just wait and the time goes by quick, download the app Heads up while you wait in line and play with your friends.
Tip: Universal App, Uber app

"Fast Pass is a Must"
January, 2015
If you're not going to shell out an extra $100+/person for fast passes don't go. Lines were 1-2 hours. I might plan on going from say 5pm to close next time as opposed to 10am to 4pm. I think lines might be better at night, and less families (I was there with my girl friend). Harry Potter areas are scary packed. Its like a New York City subway platform. Its nice to see if you're a fan, but wow . . . you leave saying not worth it. I would hate to be a parent stuck in that situation. The food in Harry Potter areas is the best in the parks though, and you have to try Butter Beer, regular and frozen (was worth 10minute line wait). I might go for park hopper next time, with just two people we could have done both parks in one day if we weren't tired. Spent a lot on food, should have planned better to have just one meal at the park. Great staff! We had an issue with our locker, actually a few and I witnessed multiple other locker issues. You HAVE to use lockers at each ride because you aren't allowed to carry ANYTHING on with you anymore. Anyway, I told a staff member and he took us to the front of the Rock'n Roller Coaster we had just ridden to go again because we were waiting for a manager/technician's assistance with the locker. Very Cool! Probably the best part of the day. Fast passes were $125 each for single use per ride, which was expensive but worth it and good enough as opposed to $200 each for unlimited use. As adults the only rides we wanted to ride more than once were Rock'n Roller Coaster and Gringots Escape.
Tip: I was told there are hotel packages that include fast passes, but I didn't see them and didn't hear this until after so I bought mine after arriving and seeing huge lines. Fast pass is a must (possibly depending on what time of year you go) so this would be ideal.

"Awesome trip"
January, 2015
My daughter and I spent two days in Universal. What a great trip. We went in January so the crowds were tame!! We enjoyed the fast pass option which was totally worth the extra money. My only complaint was that the food in the park was soooooo expensive. They should make it alittle more affordable especially for families!
Tip: PLan ahead for crowds....take advantage of the fast pass option if you can. Take your own water and snacks to the park to avoid such hefty costs for food and drinks in the park

"Best Trip Ever!"
January, 2015
Paid for my tickets via PayPal Credit, which made me nervous because I was hoping it would be honored by Universal.(seeing as how this seems to be the only site that you can use paypal to pay for universal tickets) i went from january 16-15 and got my tickets at Island Of Adventures at the Will Call station right before the enterance and they honored them with absolutely no problem! I purchased 2 adult 2 day base and third day free tickets and we had an amazing time riding all the rides! this site is awesome. i will definitely be using it again!
Side Note- Harry Potters Diagon Ally and Hogsmead is EXTREMELY crowded- plan ahead. The best times to go are 8-10 in the morning and after 4 in the afternoon. This is definitely a MUST SEE though. Absolutely amazing!

Must get a 2 day ticket to explore the park! go early to see the things you really want to see and ride the rides you really want, that will free up later to go to the shows.it will take you appx 3 hours to get the full effect of Harry Potter , this place is really crowded, I and my daughter went during Christmas break, I would recommend if only adults are going to go in the middle of the week when school is in session.
Tip: get your tickets before going to the park or you will be in line for a long time

"Universal Orlando"
January, 2015
Our family loves to go to Universal in Orlando! We have taken our two children four times over the last ten years and enjoyed every trip. When our kids were younger they enjoyed Seuss Landing. Now that they are older, they enjoy all of the roller coasters. One of our favorite places to go is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! The buildings and village look like you have stepped right into the book.
Tip: Take advantage of the shows and indoor attractions when it is hot outside. We also enjoyed the shops and restaurants on the city walk.

There are plenty of rides to do, but the whole simulator in front of a screen concept gets a bit old after a while. I would allow two days between the two parks to make sure you do everything. And make sure all the rides are open – we missed out on the Hulk coaster, which was closed for refurbishment.

I feel like I'm reliving me child hood life when I here. My family never gets tired of coming here. The rides are awesome for all ages. The prices for the merchandise is reasonable.Remember to buy a souvenir cup that allows you to refill all day. If you are going to Universal studios for a few day's bring your souvenir cup and they will reactivate it for you and you can drink free all day.

I've been going here since I was a baby. I was raised in Florida for 10 years and then had to move to New York. I met up with old friends from childhood and went back after almost 7-8 years. This is a place you go to with family and friends to create memories you will never forget about. The experience and the amount of fun you have in unexplainable. It's for all ages. For everybody to come together and have a wonderful time with each other. Definitely 5 stars because there is no price on memories that will last you a lifetime. The food, the people, the rides, and the happiness is what makes this such a fun place to be at.
