Here are 7 reasons to do a VIP Tour Experience at Universal Orlando Resort.

Look, I know you may be thinking “Isn’t that expensive?” Yes, it can be, but it all depends on your circumstances and how you look at it. If you only have a day or two to explore the entire Universal Orlando Resort, I would highly recommend looking into a VIP Tour Experience. This way you can ensure you get the most out of your visit.

With a VIP Experience guided tour, your guide is a Universal Orlando expert. They will escort you through the parks, give you some behind-the-scenes knowledge and history, and take you to attractions and rides. There is also much more to the VIP experience before, during, and after.

You can also choose if you want a VIP Tour Experience for Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure, or you can choose both! With a  1-Day, 2-Park Experience you get a seven-hour tour with priority entrance for a minimum of 10 rides. A 1-Day, 1-Park Experience is only a five-hour tour with priority access to eight rides. Your VIP Tour could include multiple parties in the same group.

If you want just an experience for your family there is also an option for a Private VIP Experience.

One thing to note, your VIP Tour purchase does not include park admission. So you will need to purchase separate theme park admission to go with your VIP Tour.

if you think you will want to do a VIP Tour Experience I highly suggest booking ASAP. They are for sale in the park at the front gates of the parks, but they often have limited availability and can sell out.

By the way, did you know that Universal Studios Orlando is a working studio? You may be walking by on your way to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and see a music video, TV show or commercial being filmed. 

Thanks to Universal Orlando Resort, I was able to go on a VIP Tour Experience, and here are 7 reasons I found to do one the next time you visit Universal Orlando Resort.

  • You Can Choose To Do A Private VIP Experience

    Your VIP Tour could include multiple parties in the same group, so if you want to do something with just your family you can choose a Private VIP Experience.  Depending on how many people are in your group it may make more sense to book a VIP Experience or a Private VIP Experience and split the cost!

  • They Feed You!

    Yes! A complimentary continental breakfast at Cafe La Bamba is included as well as lunch! If you get the Private VIP Tour Experience you also receive a full service dinner at a Universal Orlando Resort restaurant.

  • Did Someone Say Express Passes?

    You will also get Universal Express Unlimited ride access throughout the rest of the day – even when your tour is over! That is a big saving right there!

  • Step Aside, Please

    Did I mention that you get escorted onto your favorite rides? Like you go in the exit and walk right on. Your guide can even request where you sit on the ride. Oh, and you can ride it as many times as you want! Hint: request the front row of Jurassic World VelociCoaster and Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. I rode both of them twice, back-to-back. It was awesome.

  • Behind The Scenes Access

    Your VIP Tour Experience guides know so many cool things about the parks. I learned so much from them about the movies the rides are based on and the Universal Lot. Plus, they can also take you places other guests can’t access. We walked under the tracks of the Revenge Of The Mummy: The Ride, got to see the first scene of the Stranger Things Season 4 Haunted House (we were there during Halloween Horror Nights), then got to walk on the Immigration Floor at MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack.

    We also got to go through the production office and see the screening room, hair and makeup, and all the productions that have been filmed on the lot.

    You are the master of your own destiny with a Private VIP Tour Experience. You get to decide which rides you go on and when, plus get premium reserved seating at shows.
