Always on the lookout for the biggest and best? You’ve come to the right place. Not only is Universal Orlando Resort the ultimate destination for your next-level vacation, but we’re about to tell you how to maximize your time here.
Stay on property to get free Universal Express Access
The biggest reason to stay on property: three of Universal Orlando’s Hotels offer free Universal Express access for everyone in your party. That means you’ll get to skip the regular lines at all participating rides and attractions. It’s an amazing value; you’re going to want to take advantage of this one.
Don’t ride the first thing you see
Most guests will enter through the front gates and head to the nearest attraction. Zig when they zag – head to the back, then work your way forward.
Eat outside of the 11 am – 1 pm lunch window
Most people head to the in-park eateries during this window of time. Plan to snack before or eat a late lunch and you’ll have a bit more of the place to yourself.
Enter Universal Studios Florida through the “secret entrance” (pending availability)
Use child swap
Those with kids who can’t or don’t want to go on specific rides can use child swap to keep from waiting in line twice. One parent stays with the child while the other rides, and then you switch. Ask the greeter at the front of the attraction to get you set up.
