Universal Studios & International Drive



Imagine rocketing into the sky after being shot out of a volcano. Imagine high-fiving the amazing Spider-Man. Imagine skydiving indoors. Let your inner child run wild because the Universal Studios & International Drive area has everything you could ever....that's right, imagine.

If you're planning to stay in this area, be sure to shop around - you can find hotels for all budgets, including some upscale properties for less than you'd expect. And yes the vibe is touristy and full of conventioneers, yet juxtaposed are some of the most upscale restaurants in Orlando - particularly steakhouses or local-favorite Chatham's Place on nearby Dr Phillips Blvd.

The area is bigger than most visitors expect, and quick transportation is easily available. Bus system LYNX or the I-Ride Trolley are both viable options to explore the full length of International Drive, or "I-Drive" as the locals say.

Laugh your face off at the Orlando Improv, blow your mind at Wonder Works, or treat your senses to an IMAX blockbuster at Regal. Water slides, the Sling Shot, designer shoes, roller coasters, Peabody Hotel ducks, and mini golf too… Universal/I-Drive is a family attraction dream come true.
