A visit to Universal Orlando Resort is the perfect trip for the adventure-seeking family who are looking to immerse themselves in one world after another, all within 3 incredible parks.

Your heroes burst through the screen and pull you into the action at every turn. Only at Universal Orlando Resort are you able to go beyond the screen, behind the scenes, and fully immerse yourself in the worlds of your favorite shows and films.  It’s a thrill-seeker’s dreamland.

At Universal Orlando Resort, "You’re the star,” which means you get to dive into one immersive experience after another, whether that means fighting crime or facing a dragon. There’s always room for more thrills and more excitement at this movie and television-based theme park.

Which parks are part of this non-stop, action-packed theme park? With a visit to Universal Orlando Resort, you can explore 3 parks, as well as CityWalk for a new adventure every step of your visit.

  • Islands of Adventure
  • Universal Studios
  • Volcano Bay

As well as shopping and dining attractions at CityWalk.

Why Universal Orlando Resort?

There is so much for families to do, see, and experience. Whether you have younger or older kids or you are seeking more thrilling rides for yourself, there’s plenty to do at Universal Orlando Resort.

Couples looking for a more adult experience, or those hoping for a quick getaway and a shorter trip will all find plenty to do and enjoy at Universal, too. We have booked countless trips for couples looking for a more relaxed, but still lots of thrills (at your pace), long weekend or last-minute vacation.

There are lots of things to see and do seasonally at Universal Orlando as well.  Always a big, spooky hit at Universal is Halloween Horror Nights, which this year included not only Graveyard Games, but also a haunted house that references Jordan Peele's "Us," and Stranger Things donuts! You won't want to miss it.

And if you love the holiday season, the holiday decorations at Universal Orlando Resort are not to be believed!  Traveling with little ones? Meet the Grinch, Thing One, and Thing Two, and countless other characters from your favorite rhyming storybooks, and ride through the pages of The Cat in the Hat. Take notice: Dr. Seuss never drew a straight line, so you won’t see a single straight line in all of Seuss Landing. If you are traveling with older kids or just adults, don’t miss CityWalk, which is filled with one delectable dining option after another. You won’t want to leave without making a stop at our favorite, the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium. Trust us, your sweet tooth will thank you. You’ll have trouble deciding where to dine first!

Quick Tips: Four Things You Need to Know

  • 1Universal Orlando Resort is WALKABLE!

    If you’ve never been before, you need to know that getting around Universal Orlando is easy, and very accessible. It's about the size of a college campus, so getting from the parks to your resort takes much less time and effort!  

  • 2Universal Orlando is perfect for a long weekend or a last-minute trip.

    Don't have the vacation time to take a week off, but really feel like you need to get away? Universal Orlando Resort is perfect for any kind of trip, whether that’s a year from now, last minute or over a long weekend. 

    In addition to being a thrills-heavy theme park, Universal also has a really restful resort feel. If you need to take an easy afternoon by the pool, that is easy to work in without feeling like you are missing out. There’s plenty of time to enjoy staying in a resort to relax, and even to work on your tan poolside. And don’t forget about partying late into the night at the Hard Rock Hotel or at the rooftop bar at Aventura Hotel.

  • 3Consider trip insurance.

    You never know what’s just about to happen. You should consider insuring your trip to protect your investment from life’s unforeseen events and challenges.
