We always make a point to visit both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure when planning a trip to Orlando. While the Disney parks are all truly magical, the Universal parks provide a different level of excitement and a nice change of pace. While Universal strongly pushes visiting their parks over multiple days, we've always been able to hit every... More

Great return trip - with express ticket and park hopper we did both Universal Parks in a day - you need the park to park ticket to ride the Hogwarts Express from one park to the other. A must do.

This is a fantastic place to visit along with Universal Studios, but the gluten free options are very very limited. So please Universal could we see some GF symbols on the menu boards? Thank you.

This park is so much better than Disneyworld. It is more expensive but worth it. The rides and food are better because Disneyworld seems to be getting run down. And yes we did visit both parks on this trip.

What a splendid two weeks we spent here! The roller coasters are awesome and will test the stomachs of anyone, whilst the simulated rides are just brilliant. There are plenty of places to find food and we found the staff to be very friendly.

Spent a nice long day riding the roller coaster and water slides for the adult. The kid's loved the Jurassic park with it's dinosaur flights and things and then round the corner to the must ride KONG skull island, this was very good. Universal wasn't as busy and as big as Disney but it's still very good.
