It is pretty expensive, but there are lots of shops and food spots. Some really good souveniere shops, and they're pretty much priced the same in the park so it didn't matter whether we got them in or out of the park. They had a Dodgers store which was cool and overall it was an ok experience. Take lots of... More

It was good. Mostly restaurants. Some shops. Always worth at least one visit every couple of years. The hotel where we stayed offered a free shuttle. That was nice.

I got a smoothie at Jamba Juice and it was good. I got a cup of ice from the Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant. We ate at a Mexican Restaurant (I don't remember the name) and the Margaritas were good and the appetizers: soft tacos were average. We went to John Lovitz' Comedy showroom and saw a Free Comedy show that... More

Before heading to see The Voice, we had a great time perusing the shops and restaurants on the Walk. There is entertainment for all ages here..and I think would be a good respite from from the rides at Universal.

We parked at Woody Woodpecker preferred on the way to the park and managed to go through twice. The store selection was good and it even includes a movie theater which we didn't know that we had a movie rebate for parking in preferred on our reciept. With the exception of indoor skydiving you won't find anything too far out... More

We had a group of 57 people and everyone loved city walk. We went there two times during our stay in California and everyone enjoyed there time. So many Resturants and places to shop. They even have an opportunity to sky dive - where you get into this tube with air blowing up to hold you up while your flying.... More

I was here on vacation and went to the city walk for dinner on two nights. I loved the atmosphere at night, with all the lights, music and entertainment. Great place to take pictures, walk around and shop or just people watch. Only complaint would be the price for parking but to be expected for that area.

I would say there is quite a difference when you walk in during the day and when you walk out when it's night. The lights are excellent!

Though a $15 parking space on weekdays may discourage you from coming here, don't stop at the parking lot. Keep on walking in. Universal's CityWalk is a smaller and less-crowded Downtown Disney, with restaurants such as Johnny Rockets, the Hard Rock Cafe, and Buca di Beppo. We drove from downtown Burbank to Universal Studios, which takes about fifteen minutes, for... More

Universal City Walk is a fun place to spend for a few hours. Parking can be expensive at $15, but if you come Monday - Friday 11am - 3pm, valet parking is only $2 for up to 2 hours if you get a validation from any restaurant, retail or entertainment venue. This excludes AMC Cinemas and CityWalk carts. When you... More
