Whether you’re a Universal Orlando Resort newcomer, or a regular, there are several ways to level up your vacation for an even more enjoyable experience. Let’s dive into the most popular options and see which one(s) is right for you.
VIP Tour Experience
Discover the ultimate theme park experience with a Universal Orlando VIP Tour! Enjoy VIP access to all of Universal’s incredible attractions and shows, with the added luxury of a personal tour guide to escort you and your group around the park. With reserved VIP seating at shows, expedited line access, and the freedom to customize your itinerary, you’ll be able to make the most of your time and see/do everything on your list.
VIP Tours can be private (up to 8 hours), or semi-private (5-7 hours), and can be booked for Universal Studios and/or Island of Adventure. Separate theme park admission is required. Some restrictions apply.
Marvel Character Dinner
Join your favorite Marvel Super Heroes for a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience at Universal Orlando’s Marvel Character Dinner! Enjoy a delicious meal while surrounded by iconic characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, and Iron Man. Meet and take photos with your favorite heroes, receive autographs, and hear thrilling tales from their adventures. This unforgettable experience is perfect for families, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and anyone looking to add a touch of excitement to their dining experience. Separate theme park admission is required.

***During the holidays, Universal Orlando Resort offers The Grinch and Friends Character Breakfast at Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendous. If you’re traveling to Universal over the holidays, keep an eye out for an email about this!***
Whether you’ve decided to enjoy a lazy pool day at your resort, or spending the day at Volcano Bay, a cabana rental is a great way to elevate the experience. Resort cabanas typically come with lounge chairs, complimentary soft drinks and water, tv, and poolside service. Volcano Bay cabanas offer concierge service.
My Universal Photos
In my opinion, one of the greatest souvenirs from a trip is the vacation photos. And bonus points when Mom is in the pictures too!
My Universal Photos is the perfect solution for capturing and preserving your cherished memories. It include select attraction photos and offers unlimited downloads.

Universal Orlando Resort hotels have certain room categories for the most discerning guests. They include:
- Sapphire Falls Resort Presidential Suite with in-room gym
- Loews Royal Pacific Resort Jurassic World Kids’ Suites for the dinosaur enthusiasts
- Hard Rock Hotel Future Rock Star Suite complete with bass and drums for your little rockstars
- Hard Rock Hotel Graceland Suite that boasts a baby grand piano
- Loews Portofino Bay Hotel 3-bedroom Presidente Suite
Club Level Rooms at the Premier Resorts, feature the highest level of amenities, including large rooms, personalized concierge services, and a Club Level Lounge. The lounges offer complimentary breakfast, evening beer and wine, and snacks/heavy hors d’oeuvres throughout the day. If you have teenagers who are always hungry, the Club Level Lounge alone is well worth it!
Unlimited Express Passes
This last point is crucial if you want to limit your wait times for attractions. The Unlimited Universal Express Pass is Universal’s skip the line feature. It is complimentary with Premier Resorts, but is an add-on for every other category. In the case of the latter, you can combine with the length of your 2-park ticket (Volcano Bay uses Tapu Tapu – wristband technology to keep your place in line), or add it for just a day or two. Cost is based on dynamic pricing, and during busy holiday periods, I have seen the cost as high as $300 per person/per day.
Pro-tip: package it with your tickets in advance.
So, which one(s) would you like to add to your next trip?
