What To Bring
Dress For The Weather
The weather in Florida changes often. Be sure to check Orlando's forecast online before your trip. Even if it's warm during the day, you might encounter an afternoon shower in the spring and summer, or evening chill in the fall and winter.
It doesn't take long to get sunburned in the Sunshine State. Make sure to cover up or re-apply sunscreen throughout the day.
Hats And Sunglasses
Another smart form of sun protection that will help keep you comfortable. Just don't forget to remove them before hopping on the roller coasters.
From the stunning pools at our on-site resort hotels to the splashy water rides at our theme parks, there are plenty of ways to cool off here. Many park guests wear swimsuits under their clothes in case they get soaked.
You may choose to do a lot of walking around within the hotels and theme parks. For this reason, we don't recommend wearing flip-flops or heeled shoes.
If you plan on dining at one of our upscale restaurants or hitting the nightclubs at Universal CityWalk™, pack a few dressy pieces into your travel wardrobe.
Backpacks And Shoulder Bags
A small, soft-sided bag is handy for toting your essentials while exploring the parks. Please be advised that your bag will be inspected by security before you enter the theme parks, and you may have to check it in a rental locker before boarding certain thrill rides and roller coasters. We recommend you leave valuable items at home or in your hotel safe.
Ensure you have all prescriptions and medications you or your family will need during your stay. You can stop by Health Services at each park for assistance with storing daily medication.
