Universal's City Walk - Orlando

As an extension of Universal Studios Florida, Universal's City Walk is a hustling, bustling complex of restaurants, theatres and themed night time entertainment which are rivalled only by the Downtown Disney venues located in Lake Buena Vista.

Hours of operation are from 11:00 AM TO 2:00 AM, although it's Nightclubs are generally open only in the late afternoon and evening hours.

As an additional bonus to you, if you arrive after 6 PM you'll find that Parking is free and you'll avoid the $8.00 Fee at the Parking Lot which is shared by both of Universal's Theme Parks - Universal Studios Florida, Universal's Islands of Adventure, and of course, Universal City Walk Orlando.

If you're attending Universal Studios Florida or Universal's Islands of Adventure on the day that you would also like to visit Universal City Walk Orlando, the parking tickets you'll have are just as valid throughout the day (or night). So come and go as you please. Just keep your parking stub as you'll need it for re-entry.

As with any of the Theme Parks of Universal Studios Florida, Universal City Walk Orlando is just as easy to navigate no matter how you enter the Theme Park areas of Universal Studios Florida, you must first pass through Universal City Walk Orlando - you'll have no choice. But don't worry, it's free to browse, all part of the Universal experience as you make your way to the 'TWO' Theme Parks of Universal Studios Florida. Only the Nightclubs will have any type of Cover Charge and this will always remain a separate admission unless you've purchased a 'Multi-Day pass' (Best Value) such as the 2-Day, 3-Day passes, or the 14-Day Orlando Flex Tickets. Click here for Discount Ticket Information or to purchase your tickets online.

Viewer Note: The City Walk 'Party Pass' that's included with the 2-Day, 3-Day 'Multi-Day Passes and 14-Day Orlando Flex Ticket must be used within 7-days of activation from the first day that you used it for admission to Universal Studios Florida or Universal's Islands of Adventure.

The 'Multi-Day Passes' also allow you to hop back and forth between the two Theme Parks on the day of use. The 'Party Pass' feature on the 'Multi-Day Passes' includes 'unlimited access' to all the Clubs of City Walk for 1-night of use.

Again, the 'Multi-Day Passes' are a great value, and a great savings over the 1-day admissions. And we've discounted them too! Discount Tickets, here.
