If you are planning a vacation to Universal Studios, you will certainly want to spend some time in City Walk during your day. When you arrive at Universal Studios, you will be delighted to see that the parking is a stacked parking lot (unlike that of the ones available at Disney where the lots go on for miles and miles on level ground!) Once parked, you proceed towards the theme park of choice of Universal Studios or Islands of Adventures.
Play – As you proceed to your theme park, you must pass through City Walk. Along your walk, you will first pass the Hollywood Drive-in Golf where you can play a round of putt putt golf with your friends and family. There are two different courses you can take, The Haunting of Ghostly Greens and Invaders From Planet Putt. Both are great fun and offer up surprises!
In addition, located in City Walk is the AMC Universal Cineplex 20 with IMAX theater and shows by the Blue Man Group.
Dine – There are many different places to eat there in City Walk. Most of the restaurants are highly themed and popular. Here is a list of the restaurants located in the City Walk which all serve both lunch and dinner:
- Emeril’s® Restaurant Orlando

For those traveling to any of these restaurants, be sure to check out available discounts or coupons to help reduce the cost of dining. For instance, The Bubba Gump Shirimp Co. offers a membership to the Landry’s Select Club. Here is a post on how that can save you money.

Have a great time and remember to save some time for having fun in City Walk! My family has always spent as much time as we could in the theme parks, leaving time for dinner in City Walk on our way out to our car. This allows us the extra time in the parks and the fun of eating in one of the great restaurants!
Remember to get your tickets here at Undercovertourist.com before you go to save yourself time and MONEY! My family uses this company regularly to save money on our journeys to the theme parks!
