How to Make the Most of a Visit to Universal Studios

If you are looking forward to your holidays in Orlando in the coming months,  a theme park that you are likely to visit is Universal Studios. Billed as the ultimate place to get behind the scenes of some of the world’s greatest films, it remains one of the most popular attractions in the whole of Orlando and its great rides are enjoyed by millions every year.

As there’s so much to see and so little time on your holidays, it’s important to plan your trip beforehand to ensure you make the most of your trip. With this in mind, here are some great ways to help your holiday be the very best.

Buy your tickets online

With only a couple of days to make the most of your holiday, the last thing you want to do is waste time queuing up for tickets. This is why it is a great idea to get organised and book your tickets prior to your visit, and as many of them also offer an added queue jump service for an extra fee, it means that there are even more opportunities to enjoy the rides for even longer. Purchasing standard tickets are also cheaper online than at the park, which is all the more reason to have your passes ready before you board the plane.

Reserve a table earlier in the day

With the Simpsons World, Transformers and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter just some of the countless attractions you can explore, there’s no doubt that the whole family is sure to develop quite an appetite. As you are likely to be sharing the park with thousands of people, the chances of getting a prime table in one of the restaurants without pre-booking is understandably reduced. This is why booking a table in the morning is best practice, as it means that you can have a great day exploring the theme park without worrying about whether you will be able to find a restaurant.

Don’t rush to the Harry Potter rides

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been one of the most popular attractions at the park since first opening in 2010. Unfortunately, the already-mentioned fast passes do not work on these rides so it’s one of the few places you will have to queue for. In order to beat the queues, it’s always best to visit during the late afternoon after most of the crowds have dispersed – allowing you to ride the Dragon Challenge or explore Hogwarts Castle in relative peace and quiet.
