One of the things that I have noticed lately is how much I love traveling, and that includes visiting theme parks. Living in Florida gives me the best of both worlds. Just last month I had a fantastic time with the DVD Netflix Directors Team exploring Universal Orlando Resorts. I have visited Universal Orlando many, many times and even had annual passes for a long time, but never had the opportunity to check out the VIP Experiences they offer. I’ve always wondered what it was like to be a VIP guest and now that I had the chance I wanted to share it with you. Here are 5 Reasons To Book A VIP Experience Tour at Universal Orlando Resorts.
I was invited by DVD Netflix for a fun day at Universal Orlando for a VIP Experience Tour. This post was not necessary but I just had share! Thank you, DVD Netflix and Universal Orlando for hosting us. All red carpet treatment opinions are my own.
5 Reasons To Book A VIP Experience At Universal Orlando Resorts
Visiting a theme park with the family can be very stressful, although fun. Being able to hand over the stressful part to someone else will guarantee that you have the best time possible during your visit to Universal Orlando. Check out my reasons why you should choose a VIP Experience and which one is the right one for you!
Two Choices of VIP Experience
There are several types of VIP Experiences at Universal Orlando. There is a Private VIP Experience where your group will be by themselves with a tour guide. Then there is a Non-Private VIP Experience, which just basically means that you will be paired up with another group. Don’t worry; groups are a maximum of 12 guests, so you will still experience a VIP treatment and a tour guide.
No matter which VIP Experience you choose, you will be more than amazed! Remember, if you want a more customizable personal experience then make sure to book a Private VIP Experience.
Included with both VIP Experiences is a continental breakfast before your tour begins along with cold bottled water. Make sure to grab one of these to have with you during your tour. Many visitors don’t realize how hot Florida can get and staying hydrated is important.
Private VIP Experience: You will also get lunch and dinner provided for you at a full-service restaurant. We experienced a delicious lunch at La Bamba Restaurant at Universal Studios, which includes some of the best dishes from around the park for you to enjoy in one spot.
Non-Private VIP Experience: You will receive a quick service pass to have lunch at one of their quick service restaurants.
More Rides In Less Time
No matter which VIP Experience you choose to do you skip the regular lines, which at Universal Orlando theme parks is a pretty fantastic deal! Especially during peak seasons in the summer and holidays.
You will be able to experience more of the rides in less time! The VIP Experience also gets you in front of guests who have the Universal Express Pass. Simply because you have your tour guide making sure that he or she is getting you on the rides quick.
Private VIP Experience: You will be able to tell your guide exactly what rides you want to do.
Non-Private VIP Experience: You will not be able to choose your rides, the guide will already have a set schedule on which rides you all will experience.
Harry Potter! Need I say more?
One of the best perks of having a VIP Experience pass is the fact that you will be able to skip the lines in all of the Harry Potter rides! This is the only way to skip those lines. Even with the Express Unlimited Pass guests have to do the regular line. So, take advantage of this perk and if there is a ride you love like Harry Potter and the Escape of Gringott’s or Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, make sure to ride it again! You will regret it if you don’t!
Go Behind The Scenes
If you’re a big movie fan like I am then you are going to love the behind the scenes moments included with the VIP Experience. Your guide will share with you fun facts about movies and the rides. Have a question? Ask your guide. They are very knowledgeable about the park, and I’m sure if they don’t know the answer they will make sure to find out for you.
You will also have the opportunity to meet special characters throughout the parks.
Oh, and don’t forget to flash that VIP badge when you go shopping for a 15% discount on merchandise, and it also includes free valet parking on site!
As I shared, there are several types of VIP Experiences offered at Universal Orlando, so make sure to choose the one that is right for you and your family. Visit Universal Orlando website or call (866) 346-9350 for more details or to book your one park or two park VIP Experience and pricing. Park ticket not included in your VIP Experience admission.
I’ve experienced Universal Orlando Resorts many times before, but never like a VIP! It was so much fun that I’m already planning on booking the VIP Experience again when I renew my families annual passes!
A BIG thank you to both DVD Netflix and Universal Orlando for all the fun and surprises!
