Universal was fantastic. We spent two days visiting Universal Studios and Island of Adventure. We were able to see and do everything that we set out for.

Tip: Don’t buy express pass up front. We did not buy it and didn’t miss out on any rides. Look for a Coca Cola freestyle vendor and buy the refillable cup. You’ll get your money out of it. You can also bring it back a second day and pay a smaller fee to re-activate the cup.

"Way better than the other theme parks in Orlando"
June, 2018 NEW
Wait time for ride 15min to 30min, awesome customer service. One of the best experiences I've ever had in Orlando. Great food selection and buy there cup and free refills all day. Everytime I ask an employee a question they would stop what they were doing and assist me. Would recommend to all ages, races, and religions, this gives Disney a run for there money as the greatest place on earth. Just a great experience

Tip: If you have the money fast pass and check out both parks

Universal Orlando and Island or Adventure is where a grownup can go to remember the child within. Given my profession and the fact that I am business Owner, when I have down time, this is the only place I want to be....Stay On site at one of the Loews Resorts! Its very much worth the convenience added and if you stay at 1 of the resorts that provides you with the Express Pass you skip the regular lines which is completely worth the extra since the Express Pass is $$$. Oh yeah, and you have early park admission! YEAH!!!!!
