This is a great place day or night but my preference is night. Atmosphere is great for all ages & something to suit everyone although its not for those who want quiet or peaceful. It's free to visit & after 6pm it's only $5 to park. Some great bars for cocktails - need I say more!

It feels like one big party at night!

We aren't taking our kids to Universal until they're a little older so this was perfect for us. A taste of the parks without the cost.

As with most places in Orlando the people watching is epic.

And... Free parking for Florida residents! I think that it's only during the summer after a certain time but it saved us 15 bones. Yesssss!

The atmosphere in this downtown district is so exciting! They have everything too, Restaurants, shops, bars with entertainment, theater, mini-golf...Its great! And you don't need theme park admission to get into it, just have to pay for parking. Definitely a great weekend hangout spot. Just a whole lotta fun!

Great entry before you get to the parks, loads of choice for restaurants, great music playing, only downside the crowds and the parking fee to gain access.

This is a great tourist spot to visit! Group of friends went to the movies, walked around, then to a bar. Lots of restaurants and nightlife to enjoy. I epecially like that everything is outdoors. One key point tho - security gets a little aggressive close to closing time.
