Universal Studios Orlando - Fun and Games
Caught in the rather long shadow cast by Walt Disney World,
Universal Studios have always been something of a scrappy
younger sibling. To make comparisons even more pronounced, the
similarly themed Disney park Hollywood Studios opened at the Mouse House
around the same time.
But Universal Studios offers some
tremendous attractions and has its own, unique rhythm to compel
vacationers through its turnstiles. Like its sister park,
Islands of Adventure, nearly every major attraction features
loud, kinetic, frantic action. It is one over-the-top moment
Universal Studios Florida opened in May 1990 as Universal's
first park after the original Universal Studios in Hollywood and
it is located in the Universal Orlando Resort, on the southeast
side of Orlando, 10 minutes north of Walt Disney World. The
least crowded seasons are from Labor Day to Thanksgiving.
Universal Orlando Resort is way more than a theme park.
Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure theme parks are a
world where every member of the family can choose their own
perfect fun. You can have the ultimate adventure, have fun with
your kids, rejuvenate yourself, have a romantic dinner,
challenge yourself on incredible theme park rides and relax by
the pool in a beautiful Florida setting.
There is a wealth of dining options throughout the resort. The
dining options range from Bice Ristorante at Portofino Bay Hotel
and the Palm Restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel, to Emeril
Lagasses famous Emerils Restaurant Orlando in Universal
