Universal Orlando encompasses three parks. Jump into the action of your favorite TV shows and movies at Universal Studios; encounter super heroes, dinosaurs and magical creatures at Islands of Adventure; and enjoy thrilling water rides at Volcano Bay. Don’t miss the Harry Potter–themed experiences at both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, and consider buying a multi-park pass to see as much as possible.
