"Great Time!"
March, 2019 NEW
We had an extremely good time. This was so much fun. We got to see quite a bit of the park. We spent a little more to go on the Hogwarts Express, but it was well worth the extra cost.

Tip: This is more geared to the whole family, bring a rain coat or a poncho, you will get wet on some of the rides.

"Lots of fun"

Lines were easier to get through than at Disney world. Loved the option to purchase drinking cup to be able to refill on our own at spots around the park. Keeps from waiting in Long lines for a drink. Grandkids loved the play place, giving the adults time to rest a bit while they played.

Love this park!! Marvel universe is amazing. The only problem I have is on the hulk ride, the TM's dont manage the Express pass line very well. It's not really fair that the Express line gets emptied before regular people get to go. Express is supposed to only guarantee that your wait is shorter not non existent. Our wait went from 60 minutes to 90 minutes because of this. The other rides run great.

Holy Crap, how does this have so many extremely positive reviews. Yes the park looks pretty, some of the rides are really cool and the themes are nicely done. However this place is expensive as hell. Paid 140 $ dollar for one Park one day. This is ridiculous. You pay 8$ for 1 churro?!? One churro! In the Netherlands we have the Efteling which costs about 45$ a day, is wonderfully themed, not as spectacular as universal but has more rides and less lines. I am glad to have been to Universal, to see the Harry Potter world, which I loved. I just expected so much more for what you paid. I did need an entire day for one park, but mostly because I only had time for 6 rides because it was extremely busy. If its quiter I'd probably take the park-to-park pass.

"Limit the crowds Orlando!"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed March 25, 2019 NEW
Want to wait 90 minutes just to ride a coaster? Spend 8 hours in the park with most of your time standing in line and pay hundreds of dollars for it. Line jumpers with "express passes" allows them to skip the lines and go to the front of the pack making your wait times even longer. Until Orlando limits the crowds, it will be a painful experience for most. We won't be back until the value improves. Not worth the wait. Very disappointing spring break.
