Over-the-top fun at Universal Studios Florida|
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-MGM 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 after another.
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 and from mid-February to mid-March.
Universal Orlando Resort is way more than a theme park. The 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 CityWalk.
Orlando is also home to some of the best shopping in the States. From the new Millenia mega-mall, to the extremely popular designer outlet malls featuring all the latest designer fashions at fantastic prices. For many tourists, shopping is one of the many great reasons to visit Orlando often.
