My fav park over there. New transformers ride is brilliant. Minions is real class and not forgetting the old favs MIB mummy etc. This place will be worth 6 stars when new Harry potter world opens.

It was our third trip to Orlando, and our third trip to the universal studios. We have already been to island of adventure twice, and when visiting this time in september 2013 it was our second time at the universal studios. (The park consists of the universal studios & island of adventure which includes the harry potter rides).
Since we knew from experience that the lines would be long, we treated ourselves with a fast pass (yes it´s very expensive, but when it´s 95 F outside, I just don´t feel like waiting in line for an hour for every single ride, plus kids get super cranky when it´s hot and they have to wait for a long time. But we also went there in february when there were no crowds and hardly any waiting time - so you might just go inside the park and observe the waiting lines, so you will see if a fast pass in an option at that day. fast passes are also soled inside the park!)

About the rides: We loved all the rides, especially the Simpsons and transformers. Although we have seen the shrek 4d movie like 3 times it´s still fun. The shows are always entertaining and well worth a visit ! Food is good and the prices are actually not as high as you would expect.
It´s just the combination of rides/shows meeting the characters, wandering threw new york or san francisco which makes universal studios so awesome :)

Great atmosphere and some great rides. Transformers is only just pipped by Harry Potter. I love this park because there is so much going on. WDW always seem to go that little bit more but this park is more geared for adults

We went to Universal Studios Florida late in the afternoon, there was no time to spend in side. However, the trip was very nice, had nice walk around Universal and had dinner in the restaurant. This is a place for a trip for the whole day. Worth visiting again

We visited for a day, and loved Harry Potter world, although it's disappointing there is really only one ride in this theme. Other rides seemed a little dated, and aged. Staff were just okay -- many of them looked bored. Just not very impressed. We got there at 10am and were done with the entire park by seven at night.
