"Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure" Universal Studios Tip by iam1wthee

Universal Studios, Orlando: 135 reviews and 165 photos

This park is one that most everyone enjoys.
Do the shows first then the rides. The shows that are on the street normally start every 1-2 hours and are for about 15-30 min. The best to me is the Blues Brothers second is the I Love Lucy tribute. They are so much fun. The lines for the rides are quicker and shorter in the afternoon going to the evening. The best ride to me was Shrek. Don't miss it. I did enjoy the fireworks at the end of the night as well. You need at least 10-11 hours to do everything in this park alone. Islands of Adventure which is a part of it on the other side can be done in 8-9 hours. I strongly urge you to buy the multiday ticket. The best ride in islands of adventure is Spiderman.

If you do not mind having your group split up then I strongly urge you to take advantage of the singles line. It gets you thru the ride much faster. What happens is this sometimes a ride holds 9 people but a family of 5 or 7 is there they will put you in there to fill up the rest of the ride.

The international food and film festival fast food joint within the park was surprisingly not expensive at all. The food was alright and the portions were very filling.
