If Disney isn’t your thing, Universal Studios has some big time attractions featuring two parks: Universal Studios and Island of Adventure. The easiest way to describe the difference is that the rides and attractions at Universal Studios are based more on movies and TV shows, and Islands of Adventure is where the fantasy and thrill rides are.
If you’re after the big thrill rides, head to Islands of Adventure.
If you’re after a milder experience of rides and attractions, Universal Studios is the place for you! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now spread across both Universal parks in Orlando; Universal Studios has Diagon Alley, and Islands of Adventure has Hogsmeade, plus there’s a REAL Hogwarts Express train that links both the parks together!
Both parks are also easy to reach from CityWalk, Universal Orlando’s entertainment district filled with nightclubs, restaurants, shops and cinemas.
