My husband, daughter and myself walked to Citywalk from the Hilton and 2 nights. The lights are really great at night. Our daughter was able to find a few stores to shop in. Didn't get the chance to eat at any of the restaurants.

This shopping area does have a very nice ambience to it especially at night when all the colorful lights are on. Lots of stores to buy souvenirs and lots of eateries for sure. However, everything is so overpriced here especially the restaurants and snack stores. But let's face it, most people walking around are from out of town and are... More

Lots of eating opportunities and quite a variety of stores, toss in a couple of clubs and attractions and you have a fun place to kill some time before and/or after a visit to Universal Studios. The buildings are fun to look at and the stores fun to browse (and shop). You can find everything from Fine dining, to casual... More

Huge selection of restaurants, bars, and shops. Can be very crowded especially when the Universal Studios closes. Great place to unwind after spending the day in the park with a drink at the many restaurants and bars.

Strolled thru CityWalk after a long day at Universal. The lights were just starting to come on and the crowds were heavy, so it felt like walking the Las Vegas strip at night. Lots of shops and eateries, and there was a concert the night we were there (not sure who it was). Was fun to see but probably won't... More

Universal CityWalk has some interesting shops and some great places to eat. We came after visiting Universal Studios and had a late lunch, better food, cheaper than inside the park.

Went at night when all the neon lights were on and it was beautiful. Only went to a couple places, but it was fun even just walking through. Reminded me a bit of a Hollywood style mini NYC. I think kids might have fun walking through it, but it's not really kid-friendly after 9pm or so, I'd say.

First, parking garage was a mess, and needs more people directing traffic, the city walk area was nothing special, Orlando version is nicer, ate at Camacho's which was good.

Rides are virtual; however, the lines were not long. Multiple level park. You can see everything in one day. Tram tour is always interesting, especially if you are a movie buff. Special effects are always a highlight.

Overall I rate this somewhere between 3-4 stars. The best thing is that it offers numerous dining options right next to Universal Studios. So after a day at the park you can sit down and eat somewhere other than inside the amusement park without having to get in your car. There are several restaurants as well as a food court... More
