Know Before You Go to Universal Orlando Visiting The Parks

To visit the theme parks, there are a few things you need to know before you go.

Limiting Park Attendance

Since there is no reservation system, there may be times when the parks reach capacity and entry will be halted – arriving early in the day is the best way to prevent this from happening to you. Guests can also call 407-817-8317 to see the most current capacity information.

Virtual Lines

Universal Orlando is currently offering virtual lines for a variety of attractions in Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, and all attractions in Volcano Bay.

To join a virtual line, guests will need to log into their Universal Orlando account on the Universal app, tap Virtual Line, and select a time. We recommend taking a screen shot of your line QR as a back up, as you will need to have it scanned to enter the line at your appointed time.

Dining at Universal Orlando

Mobile Ordering

Mobile ordering is currently available at many dining locations throughout the resort. Guests can apply a passholder discount on mobile orders, but are unable to utilize Universal Orlando gift cards.

Mobile ordering is done through the Universal Orlando app.

Dining Reservations

For most restaurants inside the theme parks, dining reservations are available around 30 days in advance. Many City Walk and resort hotel restaurants accept reservations up to 90 days in advance.
