The Best Restaurants at Universal Orlando


You will find a wide variety of dining options at Universal Orlando Resort. The food and beverage options available at Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, Universal CityWalk Orlando, Volcano Bay Water Park, and the Universal Orlando Resort hotels are second to none.

Like many theme parks, Universal offers burgers, fries, pizza, and chicken tenders. The majority of theme park food is generally unimpressive. However, the food options at Universal Orlando Resort go beyond traditional fast fare.

Pro Planning Tip: We recommend using Jessica Lieb with ET Family Travel to book your Universal vacation!
