A spectacular vacation destination encompassing the world’s two most amazing theme parks side by side, exciting entertainment complexes, and magnificent on-site hotels.
Universal Studios is the first of the 2 Universal theme parks in Orlando. Immerse yourself in a real-life film and TV production facility. You can meet your favorite characters and ride thrilling attractions with cutting edge technology that is not found anywhere else. Transformers, Simpsons, Despicable me and Men In Black are just some of the popular move themed attractions in this park. Coming in the summer of 2014 the Universal Studios Florida Park will open Diagon Alley, an expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If you purchase a park hopper pass, you will be able to ride aboard the Hogwarts Express between Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.
Universal’s Islands of Adventure is the second them park in Universal Orlando. This theme park includes the popular Hogsmeade from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Not a detail has been overlooked from the popular J.K. Rowling book series and you will feel that you have just opened a book and stepped inside of the pages. If you book a Universal Vacation Package, you will be allowed inside this theme park an hour before the general public. Although Hogsmeade is a popular part of the park other areas are not to be overlooked. You can meet a dinosaur in person and shake hands with a superhero. This park has some of the most epic coasters while still offering fun for little ones at Suess Landing.
The two parks are connected by Universal CityWalk. This area comes to life at night with dining and shopping that you won’t find anywhere else. There are usually special coupons for CityWalk given to people that stay in the Universal hotels.
Universal Orlando offers a wide range of choices in hotels for people wanting to book packages. There are special perks for the people that stay in a Universal Hotel; one of my favorites is the Express Pass that allows you unlimited access to an exclusive express pass attraction line at select attractions. (Express Pass available only for Deluxe on-site hotel guests). In addition, you can walk or take a water taxi from any of the Universal hotels to CityWalk and the theme parks and get priority seating at select restaurants. Universal offers 3, soon to be 4, hotels for guests to choose from. If these do not suit your style you can always stay at a nearby Universal Partner hotel and will still receive some of the great perks with your vacation package.
