Just like in 2018, when I read my first “Unofficial Guide to Universal Orlando Resort,” I found the advice, information, and research to be immensely helpful for having a great vacation. I recently returned from UOR, shamefully having not completed my reading of the book before hand, and can say that without the touring plans and accompanying app, we wouldn’t have had such a good time.
For the first time, my wife and I went with her family to UOR, making it the second time for us. Knowing that the guidebook and app helped us have a great time in 2018, we used it to help us plan our recent trip.
Many things have changed at UOR so it was nice to get an update as well as remind ourselves of attractions that hadn’t changed. A new element was that this time we went at Christmas as opposed to Spring Break. The first day in the park we used the wait times on the app in order to plan our day and rides and found that we had ridden almost all the rides in Universal Studios before lunch! We waited twenty minutes tops due to the suggestions we followed but also because more families were in the park than older children/young adults as we had encountered during Spring Break.
I can’t recommend this series enough as well as the app from the same company. It’s also a fun read in general because of the comments from readers and the personal asides from the authors. Pick one up for your next trip.
