Disney and Universal have out of this world environments with great attention to detail, worthwhile rides, and entertainment that’ll keep you busy for the long weekend. Universal’s City WalkWhen choosing to go to Universal, you are also presented with the remarkable city walk. The Universal City Walk is lined with shops, delectable desserts, hot spots to drink, and noteworthy restaurants for the whole family. Before you get to the parks or when you need a break, you can enjoy Voodoo doughnuts for fun pictures, Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville for nonetheless margaritas, or try out shrimps at the Bubba Shrimp Co. For a lively environment, there is the infamous Hard Rock cafe and The NBC Studios Grill and Brewhouse, both with great, bar style food. For the most picturesque shakes and a sugar rush, the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium is the perfect spot to hit when ending the night. Choosing Your Parks & Season PassesNow choosing your parks - get the park hopper for Universal Studios and Island of Adventures and allow yourself 2 days if possible. If you are a Florida resident, there are discounts and I’d recommend getting the season pass because after two days, it has paid for itself. The best times to go if you have flexibility are weekdays and avoiding holidays (because that’s when a lot of out of state people are going). If you get antsy waiting around and are able to spend a little more money, the Universal Express pass is worth every cent. It allows you to skip the regular lines on almost every ride once so you can enjoy the thrills without an hour or two standing in line. By doing both parks, you can experience simulation rides like Shrek and the Minions while also soaring through the air on Hulk and Rockin Rollercoaster. Halloween Horror NightsAlso - I highly recommend going to Universal’s Halloween Horror Night. If you like haunted houses, the Halloween spooky vibe, and rollercoasters, it has it all.Where to StayEspecially when you are staying later at the parks, there are options to stay at hotels/resorts right on the Universal property. Two great locations are the Hard Rock Hotel and the Loews Portofino for a little Italy vibe. Those two hotels allow you to take a water taxi/ boat to and from the park, which makes things a thousand times easier than finding parking or trying to Uber later on. If you don’t mind driving or have a larger group, Airbnb in Orlando is a great choice with really convenient spots with pools and entertainment nearby. The Taste of Epcot & FestivalsFor a more magical environment that essentially requires you wear Minnie Mouse ears, Epcot is the place to be. Whereas, Universal is great whenever, there are times when Epcot is even better. Epcot is known for “Drinking Around the World” but it’s also known for its festivals.
