Universal Studios Orlando: Guide to the Park


Orlando is regarded around the world as the globe’s theme park capital. There’s nothing in Orlando quite as ubiquitous as those big black mouse ears. While Walt Disney World Resort may be an important part of Orlando’s theme park reputation, other parks shouldn't take a back seat.  

Universal Studios Orlando may not have a merry cast of characters on their side. But they do offer immersive experiences across four destinations. At its flagship park, Universal Studios invites visitors to immerse themselves in the movies. Step into the wizarding world or make friends with a minion. 

Move beyond the motion pictures at Universal’s other parks. A ticket to Universal Studios offers all the vacation adventures you’ll need. Ride roller coasters at Island of Adventure or water slides at Volcano Bay. Take a page out of our Universal Studios Orlando guide to make the most of your time in Orlando.
