More Information

Here is More Universal Orlando Information that we think may be valuable to know!

  • Dress shoes. For the fashion-conscious, stylish shoes will come in handy if you plan on dining at one of our upscale restaurants, such as Emeril’s® Restaurant Orlando or hitting the nightclubs at CityWalk®.
  • Sunscreen. They don’t call Florida the Sunshine State for nothing! It doesn’t take long to get sunburned. Make sure to cover up!
  • Sunglasses. Great for two reasons: you’ll look like a movie star, and you’ll protect your eyes from the bright sun.
  • Baseball cap or wide brimmed hat. Hats will help to shield your eyes and face from the Florida sun. This is especially essential for men with bald or shaved heads.
  • Swimwear. You’ll definitely want to cool off in the pool while you’re in Orlando. You may also want to bring your bathing suit or a change of clothing when you come to Universal Orlando’s theme parks. Some of the water rides, particularly in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, will get you quite soaked.
  • Jacket or sweatshirt. Believe it or not, it can actually get pretty chilly in Florida. Between December and February, the temperature can fluctuate from week to week between T-shirt warmth and winter coat cold.
  • Backpacks and shoulder bags. A small, soft-sided bag is always handy to have with you when exploring the parks. Please be advised that your bag will be inspected by Security before you enter the theme parks, and you may have to check it in a rental locker before boarding certain thrill rides and roller coasters. We recommend that you pack only basic essentials and leave valuable items at home or in your hotel safe.
  • Wet wipes. These are a good idea if you’re traveling with kids, especially if they’re going to be snacking.
  • Camera with batteries, plenty of film or extra memory cards. Expect to take lots of photographs during your visit.
  • And most important, don’t forget to bring any essential medications you or your family will need during your stay! You can stop by Health Services at each park for assistance with storing your daily medication.
