5 Tips and Tricks for Your Universal Orlando Visit

This is the year of organized fun! We love a little spontaneity as much as the next person, but when it comes to planning a trip to Universal Orlando Resort, it helps to be at least a little organized! Today, we’re sharing five tips and tricks for a smooth day or weekend spent at Universal Orlando!

Download the Universal Studios App

If you didn’t know, now you know - there is a Universal Studio app and we don’t know how we ever survived without it! From park maps to ride wait times, hours of operations and restaurants, the app has everything you need located in the palm of your hand! All you need is Wi-Fi to access the app, and with Wi-Fi in the park being free, you're all set!

Know the Breakdown of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™

It’s important to know that the world-famous The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ is spread across both Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure, which means a Park-to-Park ticket is necessary to visit both Hogsmeade™ (Islands of Adventure) and Diagon Alley™ (Universal Orlando). If you do have the Park-to-Park ticket, you can utilize the Hogwarts™ Express to travel between the two!

Plan Your Day

We highly suggest making a plan before starting your morning! Figure out which rides you definitely want to ride, which park you want to start in, and where you want to stop for food breaks! Keeping your day organized like this will allow you better experience the park and maximize your time! (Keep in mind it’s always perfectly fine to go off plan!)

Purchase Your Tickets Beforehand

One thing we all know is that lines can get out of hand, especially at a theme park, but we always equate that with attraction waits.  Sometimes, the ticket line gets pretty backed up as well, so to avoid spending 20 minutes or more waiting in line just to purchase your tickets, purchase them beforehand here!

Relax & Enjoy the Parks!

Planning a big trip whether solo, with family, or a group of friends can be overwhelming. There’s so much do experience at a multi-property park like Universal Orlando Resor but remember to relax and enjoy yourself.  Our tips and tricks will ensure you have a great time!
