Planning a vacation should be fun and easy, right? After all of the planning for a vacation, you probably want to know how to relax. Spending your hard-earned vacation at a theme park doesn’t have to be stressful. Here are some tips for a stress free Universal Orlando Resort vacation.

  1. Stay on property to get free transportation to and from the parks: Don’t mess with traffic. Start the day off right with a leisurely ride on a Universal Orlando shuttle bus or water taxi and arrive right at the front gates.
  2. Stay on property and go to the resort for some pool time in the afternoon: Tired of walking? Feeling a little exhausted? Nothing a nap by the pool and a refreshing drink can’t fix!
  3. Plan a day at Universal’s Volcano Bay: The vibes at Universal Orlando’s new water theme park will always be chill. Grab a Private Cabana or float down the Kopiko Wai Winding River as you indulge in the ultimate forms of relaxation.
  4. Head for indoor attractions to enjoy air conditioning and seating: When your feet are tired and the Florida sun is a little too much, there is plenty to do indoors while you cool off. Try lounging in the lobby of Universal Studios Florida’s Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon or exploring the Discovery Center in Universal’s Islands of Adventure’s Jurassic Park.
  5. Pack a towel you can wet and put on your neck: You’d be surprised at how much your entire body cools down with this trick.
  6. Use The Official Universal Orlando Resort App to plan your day: Find wait times, ride information and more on this app while exploring on-the-go. You can even reserve a spot in our Virtual Line for the all-new Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.
  7. Take a photo of your parking spot on your smartphone: Don’t stress over the prospect of walking for hours at the end of the day in search of your car. Simply keep a record of where it is on your phone. There is also a handy Parking Reminder section of the Universal Orlando Resort App where you can record your spot.
