Entrance to Universal Studios

Come "Ride The Movies"

at Universal Studios in Orlando

Be the star for a day at this real working film and TV studio. This unique 444-acre Florida theme park, which seems to only improve with age, opened its gates to the world in 1990. After some troubling early years, Universal Studios now has six great and diverse themed areas for guests of all ages to enjoy.

Stop by Hollywood and have a photo taken with Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, who like to be seen at The Mocambo Club; or with Marilyn Monroe wearing her famous Seven-Year Itch Dress near Schwab's Pharmacy. Test your alien-zapping skills at the MIB Agent Training Center in Men In Black-Alien Attack in the World Expo. Test your courage on Jaws, by coming face to face with a hungry Great White Shark with a bad attitude in Amity. Feel the effects of a tornado in Twister-Ride It Out, and for the real thrill seekers, face warrior mummies, fireballs and swarms of scarab beetles on the new psychological thrill ride, Revenge of the Mummy, both located in New York. If you need a break from all this excitement, stop by Production Central to see Shrek 4-D in OgreVision or take a ride on Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast. Or, for the really brave, check out Fear Factor Live, the most recent addition to Universal Studios.

The Studios has a little bit of something for everyone. Many places say that, but what is there for the younger kids to do? Well, at the Studios, there is an entire section devoted to the younger set called Woody Woodpecker's Kid Zone. Interactive play areas such as Fievel's Playland, which includes a water slide, and Curious George Goes To Town, where your kids will get soaked, could take up the entire day if they had their way. And what youngster would miss a chance to meet Barney? For attractions that both the adults and children will enjoy together, be sure to hop on a bike in the E.T. Adventure and help take E.T. home, ride Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster, or catch the family friendly Animal Actors on Location. It's a hoot!  

All this fun is sure to make you hungry, and you will have plenty of choices. There is everything from a replica of a '50s diner, Mel's Drive-In, for burgers and shakes; Louie's Italian Restaurant for great pizza and more; or Monster's Cafe for pasta and salad. If your party can't agree, then stop by the International Food and Film Festival, which serves American, Asian and Italian food with one check-out so the entire family can stay together. And finally, if counter service is not for you, give Finnegan's Irish Pub & Grill or Lombard's Seafood Grill a try. Both are full service.  For more choices, CityWalk and all its fun and wonderful themed restaurants are just outside the park gates.

Universal Studios is only one of the two parks theme parks located on this property, the other being Islands of Adventure which has been referred to as the roller coaster park. The Studios is considered the more low-key park. 

The Studios are currently the home of many fantastic Annual Events that include Mardi Gras, Rock The Universe, Halloween Horror Nights, and the Macy's Holiday Parade and Balloonopolis. Don't be surprised to see a few Rockettes at the Parade and Tree Lighting ceremony. Mardi Gras and Macy's Holiday Parade and Balloonoapolis are both included your regular park admission.
