The only reason why we decided to visit here is because we so enjoyed the studios at universal Florida. We were so disappointed . The only thing that really saved the day was the universal studio tour which was excellent.
A waste of a day and our time.

when we got there and was informed we had Valet parking included in our VIP package that started the day off well! once we got to the check in area we were given our VIP passes and were told to go upstairs to the VIP lounge with breakfast awaiting. The ammenities were fantastic and thats where we met our guide Zan. He was delightful and the tour was fantastic with his insightfulness and great personality. The lunch was AMAZING!!! and again in our own VIP was quiet but worth it. The day was very enjoyable and we could leave the small group we are in at any time. We didn't leave till 4 pm as we wanted to do some shopping but if you can afford it do it!!!

We upgraded to the VIP tour after entering the park. Having been to Universal once before, we were excited for the extended time in the back lot. We had two boys, ages 11 and 14, and while they were not familiar with some of the movies, they really enjoyed the backlot tour. The coach is so comfortable, they offered bottled water on the tour, and we were even got to walk through a working set.

The front of the line passes were amazing! We went on every ride in the park once before our tour was scheduled, and then again after our backlot tour. We had great seats to the show, and our tour guide, Braden, was amazing. The lunch buffet was incredible. It had an amazing selection, and the chefs were great about navigating the buffet with my son who has a wheat allergy.

We visited Universal on the last day of week long visit to Southern California, and this experience made it extra memorable. If you can afford the upgrade, it is definitely worth it!
