Universal Studios Florida

Last updated: May 30, 2024

Overview

The attractions at Universal Studios Florida are themed to movies and television shows. Much of the park has been transformed in the last decade to include rides from the Harry Potter, Transformers, and Men in Black films. There’s also a re-creation of Springfield, the cartoon home of The Simpsons. Universal’s parks are very popular for a couple of reasons: You don’t need park reservations to visit parks, and Universal opens new headliner attractions on a regular basis. Universal Studios will feel crowded even during the low season. We can help you see everything with minimal waits in line.

When to Visit

Universal Studios Florida is one of the most-visited theme parks in America. With new rides, no park reservation requirements, and special events like Halloween Horror Nights, it can be tough to figure out the best time to go. Luckily, that’s what Touring Plans does well.

Special Events at Universal Studios Florida

Universal Studios Florida hosts popular events throughout the year. Mardi Gras brings colorful parade floats, special concerts, and holiday food to the park in February, March, and April.

USF’s headliner event every year is Halloween Horror Nights. Running most nights from September through October, this after-hours party features almost a dozen full-sized, walk-through haunted houses themed to different movie, TV, and pop culture franchises, plus free-roaming characters. It’s popular enough that it’s a key part of Universal Orlando’s overall attendance numbers. Don’t miss it.

Planning Your Day

Popular attractions are placed in the four opposite corners of Universal Studios Florida. That means Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts is across the park from Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, and Revenge of the Mummy is far away from The Simpsons Ride. With everything spread out, it’s hard for first-timers to see where crowds are forming. With the right planning and the right tools, you can save a lot of time standing in line.

At TouringPlans we use data and math to make your vacation better.

See which Universal Studios Florida attractions are best for your family. We’ve collected over 90,000 guest surveys from every ride, show, and attraction in Universal Orlando. Results are organized by age group, so you can find the best things to do for your family.

“The touring plans work. Plain and simple, they work. They helped me understand the workings of an immense company and immense crowds. A godsend.”

What to See and Do

The Wizarding Word of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley is the centerpiece of Universal Studios Florida’s themed lands. Diagon Alley has enough to see and do to fill most of a day by itself.
