2. The Weather is Perfect
Florida is known for its beautiful weather year round, but this time of year it is particularly great because it isn’t so hot that your face will melt off. It is Florida so you can’t leave the SPF 80 sunscreen at home BUT you won’t feel as uncomfortable.
Tip: If you’re looking for a miniature tropical getaway, be sure escape to Volcano Bay!
Prefer to not feel like you’re performing an awkward new dance as you weave in and out of crowds? What’s great about this time year is that it is just after local spring break and before the summer visitors. Especially if you come during the week, is it the perfect time to try that restaurant you have always wanted to indulge in or just walk around and sightsee.
Tip: Check out the Insider Tips Blog to get the most out of your visit to the parks.
You have your 2 or 3 Park Pass, maybe even a first time Annual or Seasonal Pass, and all the time in the world because there isn’t a need to rush to see everything. Take your time to take in the sights and try something new. As a Passholder, you don’t have to cram everything in one visit. Stop in for a few hours or spend an entire day.
Tip: If you’re an early riser, Volcano Bay is prime in those early hours… like prime pool seating in front of the volcano!
No need to feel rushed as you make your way through the park to your favorite ride. Take your time! With shorter wait lines, you can ride your favorite attractions over and over again. Just don’t get too sick…
If you haven’t visited in a while, there’s new additions to the parks AND Universal CityWalk. New attractions means more excitement and new dining spots means more ways to stuff your face with delicious food. Check out all that is new this spring.
