Universal Orlando Resort reviews
I love the changes in architecture and feel as you move through the park. Each section feels unique. The park is very clean and most of the staff are very friendly. more »
First time at a big theme park during COVID. Universal has set some incredible protocols and I felt safe in the resort. There’s hand sanitizer everywhere and team members checking the mask mandate... more »
Wonderful place to visit and stay. Location is the best. Great warm pool, food was excellent. Service was great in all ways. I definitely would go back. I could get wet in the park, go back to my room get changed and continue enjoying the park in a matter of minutes.
Fun. Packed.. but fun. Definitely pricey, but a once in a blue moon treat, is good. Plenty of attractions to keep everyone in the family busy. Great for kids & adults. Sometimes the park is packed & the attraction rides are ridiculous, so when you decide to visit the park, is very important. You can always purchase an Express Pass & skip the lines or pick the Single Riders line. You may not be able to ride with your friends/family, but you'll definitely beat the lines. Overall, the experience is great & a lot of fun & I recommend a visit.
