Universal Orlando Resort Reviews
This was our first trip to Universal. We have always done Disney and love Disney, but wanted something different and also are obsessed with Harry Potter. We were absolutely blown away by Universal... more »
Great mix of attractions for my 10 and 13 yr old boys. Better than Islands of Adventure. Ride cues are well covered (good for hot and cold days). Clean park. Fun shows. more »
Wonderful place to visit and stay. Location is the best. Great warm pool, food was excellent. Service was great in all ways. I definitely would go back. I could get wet in the park, go back to my room get changed and continue enjoying the park in a matter of minutes.
It's very nice. The staff was excellent. The rooms were very clean. The bed was super comfy. We really enjoyed watching the movies out by the pool at night. They keep the bar open. We had a lot of fun.If you come bring lots of tip money !
