Self and valet parking is located off I-4. After exiting the interstate, signs point to the appropriate garage.
When to Get There
To avoid the biggest crowds, plan your visit when schools are in session; spring break, summer vacation, and the winter holidays can get very busy. Since many of Universal Studios’ attractions are indoors, it’s one of Orlando’s best rainy day parks.
Events at Universal Studios Florida
If the park’s regular lineup of entertainment isn’t enough, visit during one of several special events throughout the year. Halloween Horror Nights is the most popular, transforming the park into a series of mazes and haunted houses geared toward adults, while Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando in February is another adult favorite. The Macy’s Holiday Parade is a more kid-friendly affair running throughout the holiday season.
