Universal Orlando Resort in our opinion just keeps getting better & better. There is so much to do and the choice of E-Ticket Attractions are unbeatable. This is no longer a 1 or 2-day resort. In our opinion you need to spend at least 3 days at Universal Orlando to experience all the resort has to offer. However, if you are tight for time it is useful to have a Must-Do list. Here is our Top 5 Universal Orlando Must-Do for 2018.
Get a Universal Express Pass
Getting a Universal Express Pass has become our recurrent Top Universal Tip. In our opinion, you should only really attempt Universal without one in low season. We are going to Universal Orlando this year at Easter and in August. You will be a brave person to attempt the parks without one at these times.
As I have mentioned before I hate the concept of Express Pass. It creates a 2 class system. I prefer the free Disney Fastpass system.
Stay at one of the Universal Resorts where Express Pass is free. This year we are staying at Loews Royal Pacific & Hard Rock Resort.
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon
We loved this new simulator theatre attraction when it opened in 2017. A great fun attraction through New York.
Jimmy Fallon isn’t that well-known here in the UK but the attraction will be loved by everyone.
We will definitely be doing this again.
Visit The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium
We just never seem to get time to visit here.
Perhaps 2018 will be the year?
Surely it can’t make the 2019 Must-Do list?
Ride & Visit Old Favorites
- Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges
- Wizarding World of Harry Potter
- The Simpsons
- & so many, many more!
All great attractions and all on my must-do list for 2018. There really are not many poor attractions at Universal Resort Orlando.
However, skip Poseidon’s Fury whatever you choose to do. Earlier this year we wondered why we had not visited this attraction for 15 years. We now know! Don’t ask me why just skip it.
Plus there is more coming soon. Fast & Furious – Supercharged opening in Spring 2018 will almost certainly be a Must-Do attraction for anyone visiting Universal Orlando in 2018. Details are still scarce and whether Express Pass will be permitted is still unknown.
I had never heard of Voodoo Doughnut until recently. Wow, this place looks amazing and it is opening Spring in City Walk!
Who would have thought that Voodoo Doughnut would throw Volcano Bay out of my Top 5 Universal Orlando Must-Do for 2018?
Sorry Volcano Bay you will have to wait until 2019 as 2018 is going to be the Year of the Doughnut.
