Guests Enjoying a Magical Tour at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Universal Orlando Resort Private Theme Park Tours

While Universal offers a very valuable Express Pass service, the dirty little secret that Universal keeps is that they only promises that the Express Lines will never be longer than half as long as the regular lines.

That means that a ride with a regular wait time of 60 to 90 minutes can still have an Express Line wait of 30 to 45 minutes!

But don’t worry – our guides have been giving private tours in the Orlando theme parks for over 10 years.  We know all the secrets, all the strategies, and all the tricks that will ensure your family enjoys the shortest waits possible!

Just How Does Magical Tours Help Your Family?

Universal Orlando Express Pass

Maximize Your Express Pass

Maximizing your Express Pass is all about understanding how the crowds move at the Universal parks, and knowing which rides get busiest at which times during the day. We have had years of experience in the Universal parks studying crowd flows, and the result is that our tour guests enjoy Express Lines that average 5 to 10 minutes each!

Knock Out Two Universal Parks in One Day!

We offer private tours of both Universal Orlando theme parks – the Universal Studios Florida theme park, and the Islands of Adventure theme park. These two parks are within walking distance of each other.  Most days of the year, with a “Park to Park Ticket” and a “2-Park Express Pass”, we can help you enjoy almost all the rides at both theme parks in just one day!

Help With Ticket Purchasing

Universal’s online ticket system is not the easiest to understand – in fact, to put it bluntly, it’s a confused mess.  However, we know which theme park ticket and Express Pass combinations are the best to have, and we can help you by ordering your tickets for you at no additional cost!

How Do Our Tours Work?

  • Early Start Means More Rides

    The first few hours of the day are critical in getting you on some of the most popular rides before the crowds pour in and the Express Lines get out of hand. Keep your mornings free of any breakfast reservations or scheduled stops, and plan to meet your guide at the park 30 minutes ahead of opening.

  • Follow the Leader

    Our tour guides have years of experience and insider knowledge, and may frequently recommend things that go against what most “guide books” tell people to do. Trust your guide’s leadership and you will avoid many long lines others will be stuck waiting in.

  • Help Us Help You

    We will contact you with questions to help us plan your itinerary. Universal is not the sort of place you want to visit without having a solid plan in advance. The more details you can give us, the better a plan we will be able to put together for your family.

  • Be Flexible

    Unexpected things can happen at the parks. Inexperienced families will be caught off guard and find their best plans going down the drain. However, our guides know how to handle just about anything that can come up during a tour. Following their recommendations can help you avoid many of the pitfalls other families will fall in to.

  • Everyone Needs an Express Pass

    Without an Express Pass you will not have access to the shorter “Express Lines” and you will be stuck in long lines all day.  Make sure each person in your party has both a park ticket and an Express Pass.  If you need help purchasing your Express Passes, we will be more than happy to help you.

  • Harry Potter Stretches Over Both Theme Parks

    For families looking to enjoy the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it is important to understand that there are two separate Harry Potter areas – one area at each Universal theme park.  At Universal Studios Florida you will find Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, and next door at Islands of Adventure (within walking distance) you will find Harry Potter’s Hogsmeade.  The two areas are connected via the Hogwarts Express train ride, but you must have a “Park to Park” theme park ticket (allows you to visit both parks on the same day) in order to ride the train between the two Harry Potter areas.

Private Theme Park Tour Rates

All of our Universal Orlando private theme park tour rates are based on families of up to 6 guests (ages 3 and up). For families larger than 6 guests, additional fees may apply.

All members of your touring party must have both a theme park ticket and a Universal Express Pass.  We are happy to help you with purchasing both park tickets and Express Passes.

We understand things can happen.  In the unfortunate event you need to cancel, we are happy to refund you your entire amount, minus a 10% planning and processing fee, so long as you cancel with us no later than 60 days prior to your tour date.

We are very sorry, but due to the logistics in planning for a tour, we cannot offer refunds for guests who cancel with us less than 60 days in advance.

In addition, due to the high demand on our services during the busy seasons and holiday periods, we cannot offer any refunds for any tours booked during those times.

In all honesty, we will be the first to admit that you can dig around on Google and probably find independent Universal tour guides that charge less than we do. But as the old adage goes, you always get exactly what you pay for.

Our guides have grown up in these parks.  These parks have been an important part of our lives, and we want to share them with you.  Few other tour guides can claim the same.
