  • This is one of my very favorite theme parks. Islands of adventure is also a must. Restrooms are clean and stocked, restaurants are always fresh and delicious. Staff is always friendly. Especially when you are purchasing the tickets in the very beginning. Plenty of fans and misting Stations to keep you cool while you wait for the rides… This park always makes you feel like you’re part of the movies. It takes more than just one day to cover everything. Maybe give Disney a break and try Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure for your next vacation destination.
  • We had a great time here at Universal Orlando, and it didn’t take long to enter as we had purchased the tickets in advance. Love the aesthetics in the park. One thing I was not a fan of, and likely just myself, is how much screens and projections were used here in the shows and rides. For myself I quite enjoyed the rides and shows at Disney more for that reason. But other than that the experience was good, and would definitely recommend.
