Tyler Cruz at Universal Studios

October 27, 2011 Posted by Tyler Cruz

There’s so much to see and do in Orlando, Florida that I’m still not done with my post updates from the trip.

Aside from all the Disney World parks, we also went to Universal Studios. When I was a kid, my family and I went to Disneyland and Universal Studios in California, and I remember enjoying Universal Studios more than I did Disney World, so I was really looking forward to checking it out in Florida.

It didn’t disappoint, although neither did the Disney World parks. Universal Studios appears to have much larger and grander buildings and venues though… there are some restaurants and rides that are just enormous, while still looking absolutely beautiful with all a lot of fine detail going into them.

There are also less kids at Universal Studios compared to the Disney parks, which is always a plus.

Oh, and the really odd thing is that Universal Studios put a lot more effort into providing more of an atmosphere. For example, there were hired bands just playing outside at different random locations, various characters in costumes walking around, and at one point we were walking down this area when suddenly the X-Men team ran out – all dressed up in nice make-up and costume, each jumping onto a motorbike or ATV, and sped off!

It was nice to see Universal Studios putting in the effort to make little things like that happen, as it really makes a difference in the experience.

Here’s a video clip of a very small taste of what Universal Studios has to offer. The first half is of the brand new Harry Potter section. The second half is of Lisa on one of the Jurassic Park rides, and some of the beautiful scenery of the park:

I have one final post coming up, from yet another park, and then I’ll be posting about my meetup with AmpedMedia and PeerFly.

    It seems to be a lot bigger and more grand than I thought. When I was in Singapore a couple of months ago, I was supposed to visit a smaller version of Universal Studios that’s there but could not fit it in the itinerary sadly.

    Great pictures. I love living vicariously through your vacation, because I have no idea when my next one may be :-(

  11. As I mentioned in your Disney post, I’ll be in Florida in a few months. Again, thanks for the photos of temptation!

  12. Well looks ok to me, I still prefer States Universal Studio – the original or Japan due to the weather. Singapore weather is abysmally humid.
