its behind-the-scenes studio tour and movie-themed rides,
Universal Studios Florida is a "must-see" attraction
for families visiting Orlando and staying at our property.
park opened in 1990, and was re-vamped during 2000/2001
as Islands of Adventure was completed and opened. It's now
taken its rightful place as one of the top3 attractions
in the area - and should stay that way!
The Studios are not just a theme park. They are real, working
studios, producing commercials, television shows and movies,
as well as doing pre and post-production work on other shows.
sure you take the time out of your day to see some of
the word by visiting the Production Central area of Universal

Universal Studios - Ride the Movies is open 365 days of
the year, typically from 9:00am. Closing times vary depending
on the season - but are typically from 6:00pm. Of course,
Universal CityWalk stays open till late - so you can always
stay after the day at the park and enjoy a meal, a movie,
some live music or a drink.
else you do - make sure that you get a Universal
Express Pass when you come to either of the Universal
We suggest that you arrive as early as possible, use the
valet parking, rush to the gate, and then run around (anti-clockwise)
to Back to the Future first! That way, you'll beat all
the waiting in line at this fabulous ride, and you can
spend the rest of the day exploring (it worked for us).
Other favorites are the Men in Black ride and Terminator
2 3D - who are we kidding - ALL the rides here are stupendous!
Universal Studios is well laid out as far as access goes,
especially for those guests that need to use Wheelchairs.
Generally the aisles and pathways are plenty wide enough
to accommodate any of the electric mobility vehicles that
can be rented within the park.
One final tip...we recommend that you take the extra expense
for the valet parking. It's a lot closer to the entrance,
and will save your (doubtless!) aching feet at the end
of the day!
should take Hwy 192 to the I-4 interchange and take the
I-4 Eastbound toward Orlando. Exit at junction 30A (Universal
Blvd) and take a left and follow signs to Universal.
parking is available for all vehicles. Parking is chargeable
at $7.00 per car. If you want to avoid the walk (long)
from the car-parks, we recommend that you use the valet
parking facility at $14.00 per vehicle.
