I (and my whole family) loved this park! Great size. It felt like we were busy all day, but not overwhelmed. Line ups kept moving, so wasn't a big issue despite the July crowds. Stand-out rides were the Transformers and the Harry Potter (Forbidden Journey)....More

I will preface my review my saying that it's been years since I've been to an amusement park and haven't been to the Mouse House's parks since I was a toddler. That being said, I was blown away by my experience at Universal Studios Hollywood....More

It starts in the evening around 7:30-8pm as soon as it gets dark. It only last for 6 mins at most . No you don't use a front of the line pass because there is enough open and available space around the castle. You can't miss... More

Only the VIP pass gets you into studios. However when it is weekend the studios are close and of course when they have a shot you can not enter the studio.
