I recently visited both Universal Studios Orlando theme parks in one day with a park to park ticket. It was a long 12 hour day but awesome fun. We arrived at Universal Studios for 11am with a plan to stay until the nightly fireworks which were at 10pm.
I will go in to more detail in other blog posts about the other attractions but one of the best shows they have which has been at Universal Studios since March 1991 in the Blues Brother, based on the 1980 Blues Brother movie which starred Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as Elwood and Jake Blues. If you haven’t seen it I suggest you check it out as it’s a great movie with an amazing soundtrack which is where the show was created from.
The Blues Brothers show is set in the New York part of the Universal Studios Orlando park and features some of the classic songs from the movie. It’s normally on 5 times a day but check the local listings when arriving at the park.
If you are planning to visit Universal Studios Orlando this is a must and always draws a big crowd.
Universal Studios is located around 20 minutes from all of our 550 Orlando vacation rentals which are mainly located on HWY27, HWY192 and HWY54 so they are an ideal base from which to explore all of the Orlando theme park attractions.
I hope you enjoy this short video of the Blues Brother show at Universal Studios in Orlando.
