The Best Kid Rides At Universal Studios For Toddlers
Holy Toledo Batman, Universal Studios is grossly underrated for toddlers. We just got back from our trip to Orlando, and after 2 days spent at Universal, I can vouch that there are so many kid rides at Universal Studios for preschoolers. When I was researching this trip I couldn’t find a list of what best to do with my little one, so I put together one for you!
Universal Studios in Orlando is split into two parks: Universal Studios and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. It’s $160 per person for a 2 day pass. Under 3 is free. I can honestly say that it would be worth EVERY penny, but if you’re looking for a cheaper option Costco Travel normally bundles a nice hotel with free Universal tickets! The bundle we got was with Renaissance Orlando and I was very pleased with both the hotel and service. The Renaissance also has 2 splash pads and a giant pool, so the whole family can cool off and have fun! What worked very well for us was to hit the splash pad in the morning, let the munchkin take a nap, and then go to the parks. By the time we got there (around 1 or 2), there was more shade to cool off in and the lines had dwindled down. Below you can find my list of fun toddler attractions at each park!
*A note: Do not forget to bring a swimsuit (I prefer SwimZip with the SPF) and an extra outfit!
The Best Kid Rides at Universal Studios for Toddlers:
Despicable Me Minion Mayhem
Woody Woodpecker’s Roller Coaster
Curios George Goes to Town Splash Pad
Animal Actor’s on Location
All of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Diagon Alley
and Monster’s Cafe is super cute for lunch!
Universal’s Islands of Adventure Toddler/Preschooler Attractions:
High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Ride
One Fish, Two Fish
If I Ran the Zoo Splash Pad
Jurassic Park Discovery Center
Sinbad Stunt Show
Me Ship, The Olive
Hogwart’s Express- It’s not just a train but an interactive ride!
We spent a day at each park. From around 2:00 PM til’ closing we explored every inch of kid rides at Universal Studios and enjoyed every minute!

Looks like a fun trip! I"ve never taken my boys to Universal Studios. They're teenagers now, and I'm sure they feel deprived.
Haha Wendy I'm sure they're not! 😉
This post is perfect timing! We will be visiting Universal Studios in the fall! Thank you for the information…I'm pinning
It's been a few years since we had toddlers there and I miss that look of wonder and excitement. So cute! Looks like you had a blast.
OMG. Your little one is adorable 🙂
Ahhh I LOVED Universal! For adults that act like small children, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must! I can't wait to go back to visit Diagon Alley!! -Dorrie @ Bear Den Plantation
So fun! We are going to Disney next year and maybe Universal too – I will save your post!
He is such a cute boy!
I'll be at Universal in January and can't wait, though I'll likely be sticking to the big kid rides and Harry Potter 🙂
What a great family trip! I'll be there in January, and want to do all of this – toddler or not! haha
Looks like yall had a blast!
Looks like you had so much fun! When my kids were little, Thing 1 was 4 and THing 2 was a baby, hubby was in Orlando on business and we all tagged along. I took the kids to US by myself! Oh gosh just getting the stroller on and off the parking lot tram not the mention wrangling the kids was quite the challenge. Haha! Live and learn!
Oh I want to go SO much. It is such a long way for us, but we will go one day. Great post x
When my family went to Orlando we had a toddler, and they had a blast with him at Universals! Such a fun place for everyone 🙂
Looks like SO much FUN! We're Fl residents but haven't taken our kiddos there yet, thanks for the great tips!
Looks like you had a blast! (I secretly LOVE toddler attractions because being short, little arches for kiddos make me feel giant 😉 haha)
We did not go to Universal when we had toddlers but did Disney which went well until the epic meltdown by the Magic Kingdom Haha! Looks like a fun adventure with your sweet kiddo!
sounds fun! no toddlers (or kids) here but i think orlando is just a great place for kids of all ages 🙂 including kids at heart (ahem!)
Looks fun! I plan to go to Universal with my fam in August (parents, siblings and cousins) and we are all soooo past being toddlers. It's gonna be so much fun lol
What great photos! I can't wait to go back to Disney/Universal. My BF and I want to plan a trip…definitely want to go back before I have kids!
