Backpack or Fanny Pack

Bring a small backpack or fanny pack that will fit into the free lockers – as there are several  things to bring for a comfortable and convenient experience.

Waterproof Lanyard

A common upgrade to a standard Universal Studios admission ticket is a Universal Express Pass. It's recommended to wear a lanyard around your neck to store your Express Pass in. 

Comfortable Walking Shoes

Universal Orlando Resort is gigantic so you will be walking  A LOT! Plan to walk an average of 10-12 miles a day so comfortable walking shoes are a must for the whole family.

Waterproof Phone Pouch

The most convenient way to have your phone easily accessible for photos and things like the Universal Orlando app, be sure to bring along a waterproof phone pouch.

Portable Battery Charger

A day of snapping photos and using the Universal Orlando Resort app is sure to drain your Smartphone battery so do not forget to bring a portable phone charger.


Because you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time, it is very important to select a broad-spectrum sunscreen (and lip balm) and reapply it every 2 hours, even when it’s cloudy.

Rain Ponchos

To prevent yourself from getting soaked, by sporadic rain showers, be sure to pack portable rain ponchos for the entire family.

Reusable Water Bottle

Per their policy, guests are allowed to bring reusable water bottles into the Universal theme parks. It will save you tons of money from purchasing bottled water inside the park.


Throwing a few snacks into your Universal day bag is always a good idea as it will save you money as well as time spent standing in line to order food.

Pain Medicine

When deciding what to bring to Universal Studios, always leave room for a travel-sized container of pain reliever and  motion-sickness medication.

Hand Sanitizer

A portable-sized hand sanitizer is one of the most essential things to bring to Universal Studios, to use after touching ride handles and before eating and drinking.
