Book a VIP Private Tour
A Universal Studios private VIP tour ensures that you and your family can have all of the fun without stressing about the pesky details of your trip. A trip to Universal with My Five Star Tours ensures shorter lines, more riding, reserved seating during shows, and an all-star tour guide who knows the ins-and-outs of the park. Whether you’re into stunning movie productions like The Amazing Spider Man or your kiddos are major fans of Cat in the Hat at Islands of Adventure, our guide will bring you on a path filled with a plethora of thrills and fan favorites.
Pack an All-Purpose Bag
When traveling with kids, the number one factor is staying prepared. Pack a bag with the sole purpose of bringing to the parks. This bag can have snacks, water, ponchos, a portable foam fan, and anything else you can possibly think of. If there is anything your little one can’t live without, like a stuffed animal, there is no harm in packing it so they will be more comfortable. Be sure to pack a mini first-aid kit for minor scrapes and bruises. Universal can get the kids a little too excited sometimes!
