We did all the Disney Parks and then only 1 day here. This place is the best. If your kids are 8 or older spend your park money here ! Do the Fast Pass and have fun.

“Definitely visit, especially with children”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Fantastic park, majority of rides are 3d or 4d experiences but are pretty impressive! Transformers 3D ride is by far the best 3D ride ever! Family also really enjoyed the Despicable me and Simpsons Ride! Simpsons land is fantastic! Can't fault the park but if its the bigger rides you are after, Adventureland and Hollywood studios is where you want to be.

My step-daughter (18) and I did one day at Universal and loved it!! We had a blast! Wait times weren't too long, all rides were so fun! The Mummy Returns ride was our fave! Highly recommend this park!

“Universal Florida”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Would rate universal very high, have visited universal every year since 1995
Harry potter ride, is a must do, as is the terminator (if you have never seen it). I recommend you eat befor going in to the park, as fast food is very much the norm, the $17 parking is costly .... Considering the cost of the park ticket. Make sure you make a note of where you park your car as each parking area is very much like each other . But even at 60 years old I still go on all the rides and have always found something new to do every time I've been, best time to visit is April (after Easter) as the park is less busy .

“Tons "O" Fun”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Want to do both parks in one day? Get the express pass. The cost for express pass for both parks was $89.00/person. Very expensive, but you will be able to visit both parks in the same day on a moderately busy day. Unfortunately, you cannot express pass a favorite, Harry Potter ride. We checked early and the line was SUPER LONG (over an hour wait) and it was super crowded and HOT. What worked great for us was to return to the ride 45 minutes - 1 hour before closing and low and behold-no lines. We rode it 3 times in a row hardly a wait! Also got into Ollivanders with a short wait. Get the frozen Butterbeer, tastes better than the regular! I highly suggest you visit this area really late in the day for a more enjoyable, less crowded visit. They have new attractions that are fabulous. Super fun, second to Discovery Cove! Ate at Confisco and they have gluten free items, like hamburger buns, which was nice!
