Picture this. You’re minding your own business, waiting in line for that ride you’ve been so excited to experience… and it happens. A breeze across your face, the flash of Slytherin and Ravenclaw shirts pass by. The VIP tour has arrived. You watch in happiness, and a tad hint of jealousy, as they hop on that exact ride you’re in line for. “That’s going to be me one day,” you whisper to yourself. But what you didn’t know is experiencing a VIP Tour Experience at Universal Orlando is easier than you think!
If you’re wanting to feel “very important” Universal Orlando is ready to make that happen. In fact, Universal offers two ways to experience their VIP Tours.
Option 1 – Shared VIP Experience
Your first option is a shared experience. For only $189 per person plus tax, you, your friends, and a small group of other people (who we’re sure will be your friends by the end of the day) will “get exclusive backstage access, learn fun insider information, and enjoy the parks’ most amazing rides and attractions without waiting in line.”
Here’s what’s included in that cost:
Priority front-of-the-line access to all rides and attractions including The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man®, TRANSFORMERS™: The Ride-3D and all of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ attractions
Exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences in the parks (subject to availability)
Complimentary valet parking (one vehicle, based on availability)
Reserved seating at shows (excludes live performances during Mardi Gras and Mannheim Steamroller during the holidays)
Complimentary continental breakfast and lunch. Dinner included in Private VIP Experiences only
Universal Express Unlimited ride access at participating rides and attractions throughout the rest of the day (during normal park operating hours)
Exclusive VIP Experiences lanyard and credential
Universal CityWalk Party Pass™, valid only on date of VIP Experience (during normal CityWalk park operating hours)^^
Discounts at select Universal Orlando owned and operated merchandise locations in the theme parks and CityWalk
Option 2 – Private VIP Experience
Your second option gives you true “Very Important Person” / VIP tour status. “As the only guests on this all-day tour, your private group will get exclusive VIP treatment.” Your group will be able to build your own itinerary. It also means unlimited front-of-the-line access to all participating rides and attractions. On top of all the perks guests receive on the shared experience, guests booking a private VIP tour will also receive a “My Universal Photos 3-Day Photo Package,” which begins the same day your tour takes place. Prices for this option vary, so make sure to talk to your MMV agent to get the most accurate information.
Currently, these VIP tours are offered at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure in these formats:
Let’s Have Some Fun (A First-Hand Experience)
Recently a small group of our MMV agents had the opportunity to live the life of a “VIP” at Universal Orlando, so instead of boring you with the details… we want to show you how #EPIC their day was visiting the parks. Take a look!
It’s 9 o’clock on the dot, we’re in our MMV gear cruising the streets (of Universal Studios).
Our agents were ready for some fun at 9 o’clock in the morning at Universal Studios. But, you can’t have a full day of fun on an empty stomach, so first up on the schedule was Café La Bamba for a breakfast buffet. Here our agents chatted with their tour guide for the day, Vincent, about everything they hoped to do that day.
At 9:30, it was time to get to the good stuff. Did someone say back-to-back rides on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™ AND Jurassic World VelociCoaster? ‘Cause they did just that (and it was amazing)! Our agents were able to experience 8 attractions between 9:30 and 12:30.
At 12:30 it was lunchtime! Here they were able to experience a 3-course meal at Mythos, an award-winning restaurant located inside Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
But the day wasn’t over yet. After lunch, MMV was able to continue their day experience at the front of the line on 6 other attractions. PLUS, to make the day even more amazing, they were able to step backstage and get an up-close look at how they service the Spiderman vehicles and step into the world of the Men in Black.
Some of the great things about experiencing a VIP Tour at Universal Orlando is the fun you and your family can experience in a stress-free way. And, we can’t forget to mention the icing on this cake: the VIP Tour Guides. The tour guides at Universal Orlando are the perfect bow for your “V.I. Present.” They are packed full of fun facts, great advice, and helping hands. They’ll make sure to take time for special photos, that you don’t miss anything important, and will become a member of the family by the end of the day. Special note: That’s why it’s always important to tip these amazing team members to show them your thanks!
As you can see, if you’re wanting to tackle the parks like a pro, a VIP Tour may be a great way to see the sights! Contact your MMV agent to talk about what might be a good fit for you and your family on your next Universal Orlando Resort Vacation!
