The Mouse For Less Tips
- E.T. Adventure is a very laid back slow moving ride. It is great for all ages, however some pf the creatures on E.T.’s home planet may look a little odd to those who are very young. If your child is weary of new things pick up a copy of E.T. the movie before you go and make it a movie night!
- Sometimes when the park is slow the ride in Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone will open an hour or so after Universal Orlando Resort has opened.
- To see what times each KidZone ride opens the day of your visit you can pick up a Universal in-park map at the front of the park. Or Download the official Universal Orlando Resort app.
- E.T. Adventure does not have a photo taken while you are on the ride itself, it does have a photo area in the gift shop though. At E.T.’s Toy Closet & Photo Spot you can recreate two of E.T.’s magical movie moments.
