When you visit Universal Orlando Resort, you'll experience a world class destination with thrilling rides, spectacular attractions, fine dining, shopping, and live entertainment. With several on-site hotels, you can be close to the action without ever leaving the resort. AAA Travel will help you plan a trip of a lifetime at Universal Orlando Resort, where AAA members receive exclusive benefits and discounts.

 

Unforgettable thrills and magical encounters await at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal's Island of Adventure. Dine at the Leaky Cauldron, shop at Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, and get ready for an adventure on the multi-dimensional thrill ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. Plus, travel to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade on the Hogwarts Express. 

 

On the Jurassic Park River Adventure, glide along in your raft into the restricted area of Jurassic Park. Come face to face wth a T-Rex without an escape route. The only way out is through a dark tunnel that plunges you 85 feet to safety. Enjoy the splash ending and many other feats that await in Universal's Island of Adventure.

 

Go behind the scenes, beyond the screen, and jump right into the action of your favorite movies at Universal Studios, the world's premier movie, and TV based theme park. Here an amazing array of rides, shows, and attractions make YOU the star, putting you right in your favorite scenes from your favorite movies and TV shows. You might even catch a real film crew at work on the backlot. Universal Studios is the only place on Earth where you can experience all the nail-biting excitement, pulse-quickening thrills, and side-splitting comedy of the greatest movies and TV shows ever created, with YOU right in the middle of the action!   

 

Universal's Volcano Bay opened on May 25th, 2017. Based on the carefree attitude of the fabled Waturi Islanders from the Pacific Isle, this water theme park allows you to experience thrills and relaxation in a newly created paradise. From careening down slides, to drifting down a winding river, you can decide how you want to experience the water. Wear the Tapu Tapu to avoid waiting in lines or carrying around rafts. One wave of your wrist will hold your place in line and reveal other surprises throughout the park. Just steps away from Universal's other theme parks, Volcano Bay is like no other.

 

At Universal Orlando Resort, you’ll enjoy themed dining and shopping, and a variety of exciting special events throughout the year. When you stay in the heart of the fun and excitement at an on-site hotel, you’ll be within walking distance to Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal CityWalk, and Universal’s Volcano Bay.

As an AAA member, you will get discounted tickets for Universal Orlando Resort, where you can discover the three theme parks. Check out AAA Talks for a Theme Park Game Plan to maximize your theme park visit. Call 1-800-444-8691 or visit an AAA Travel branch to book your tickets today!
