Can easily pass a good bulk of the day here. A little expensive but it's worth it. A lot of attractions for kids and adults.

My experience there was amazing. The rides are very cool. The drinks and food there are too. They sell big donuts and bigger food. You can also go inside little parks that show how movies are made and king Kong as well.

Universal Studios Hollywood is much smaller, with less attractions, than Universal Studios Orlando...but it's still a great time. We really enjoyed the Backlot Tour and Harry Potter (though really doesn't compare to the Harry Potter in Orlando). We upgraded to the Universal Express which was...More

Loved to walk around and look at everything! Studio tour was great! Lots of walking. Food is okay, spendy. This is definitely a one day and done activity.

There's a great ambiance at the theme park, between Hogsmeade (Harry Potter) and Springfield (The Simpsons) that includes places to eat, shop and explore, as well as the rides. The studio tour is a lot of fun, and each go is unique thanks to the...More

I would recommend you check the website, for up to date times. I also agree re buying your ticket online ahead of visit. Some travel agents can help with this.

Thanksgiving day at Universal Studios Hollywood. (2 Replies)
We are going to be in L.A. over the week of thanksgiving. We are trying to plan what activities we are going to be doing each day. When I booked the holiday I totally forgot that the week is thanksgiving so I kinda goofed on that as I don't like going to these places during very busy times. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows about or has been to Universal Studios on Thanksgiving day. I am wondering if it is insane and we should stay away. I can't seem to find information specifically...More

I'd be interested in the answer to this question as well, generally, but don't most Americans spend Thanksgiving at home with family stuffing themselves with food and watching football? Therefore making somewhere like a theme park less busy than usual?

So confused. I am planning a family trip for next year. Family of 5- kids will be 11, 15 and 17. Definitely want to do L.A.- Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood etc but don't know what else to add on. We would have about 10- 12 days before flying to Hawaii for a week. Unsure whether to add one city- San Fran; Las Vegas or San Diego/ Tijuana day visit. We like to do busy things- theme parks, shopping etc rather than relaxing on a beach (save that for Hawaii). Not sure whether to hire a...More

Hi With such a limited period of time, I recommend not choosing too many places. You already have two on your list: Los Angeles and Anaheim (the city where Disneyland is located.) If you're visiting Disneyland & California Adventure with the popular 3 Day ParkHopper ticket, that's more time in Anaheim. Las Vegas is possible with kids, but it's not a family-centric vacation destination. The Top Questions on the right side of the page has oodles of information for visitors....More
