One of the most commonly asked questions by newcomers to Orlando is;
Q: Which is best; Disney or Universal?

Our honest answer is always received by a frown!
A: Both and neither!

The difficulty is, that neither Universal or Walt Disney World is a substitution.  They both offer a completely unique experience, rather like choosing the best music in the charts; it’s a matter of personal taste, and your taste can change day to day, or even year by year.

Universal however, have definitely carved a niche out in the teenage and young adult markets.  Islands of Adventure is literally packed full of adrenalin rides, and the ultra cool theming of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, now bridges both of their Orlando parks.

What seems more notable about Universal, is their passion for live music.
With live ‘headline’ bands performing regularly at the Music Plaza during Universal Studios’ Mardi Gras, Rock The Universe, and Summer Concerts, Universal Orlando also bombards us with even more incredible music events at the Hard Rock Live venue and the Velvet Sessions over at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Every Witch Way WeekendUniversal also adds a huge amount of importance to live appearances form its network shows and featured attractions such as the annual Celebration of Harry Potter events that offer a chance to meet the movie’s talent.
Shows like Every Witch Way are also featuring this year at Universal Orlando, with a cast appearance, autograph signings and Q&A with Paola Andino (Emma Alonso), Nick Merico (Daniel Miller), Paris Smith (Maddie Van Pelt) and Rahart Adams (Jax Novoa).
