Universal Parks Launches Discover Universal Vacation Planning Content Site

It’s my absolute pleasure and (speaking on behalf of the team) a true passion to get to introduce the world to Discover Universal. The Discover Universal content hub was created in response to feedback we have received from you, our guests and — hopefully — potential future guests, about wanting a one-stop resource for learning everything you need to know about Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. Here you’ll find informative articles, entertaining original video series and a brand new vacation planning podcast to give you the must-dos, must-eats, must-knows, how-tos, and so much more. 

We understand that the world is changing and so are the needs of our guests. So, we intend to create innovative ways to communicate with you through valuable content and rich storytelling. In the coming years, we’ll continue to listen to your comments left here, on our social channels, and in every survey taken as we hope to create content that puts the wants and needs of our guests at the forefront of our editorial mission. 

We hear you, we appreciate you, and we’re here to create for you.

Below you’ll find a sampling of what’s to come in the near future. Get ready to Discover Universal!


Podcasts are one of the fastest growing mediums for content consumption. So we want to make sure we have you covered no matter where or how you want to learn about our destination. Our Discover Universal Podcast hosts will give you the tips, tricks and must-know details to help you plan the most unforgettable vacation ever.

How fast does that ride go? Does it go upside down? What’s the ride height requirements? And what about hidden easter eggs? These are some of the questions our Ride Guys hosts hope to answer as they take you through an entertaining tour of the must-do attractions at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, and strap in to show you what the actual experiences are like. SHABOOM!


In the past 20 years, theme park fare has matured, and our hosts are taking you on a culinary quest to taste their way all around Universal Orlando Resort. From doughnuts to pizza to sushi to Cowboy Ribeyes, you’ll see why a visit to our destination is about so much more than just the rides. *CHEF’S KISS!


Did you know that Universal Orlando Resort has eight themed hotels? Some of them just steps from the parks. On Checked In, our host will visit each hotel breaking down the theming, benefits, transportation, and amenities to help you choose the right hotel for you and your loved ones. 

All of this in addition to continuing to provide a slew of blogs and blog series to educate and entertain. We’re so excited to launch all of this new content! Please share your feedback with us wherever you find our content or you can email the team any time at DiscoverUniversal@universalorlando.com. And stay tuned as we announce more series in the coming months.


Jimi Kunkel is the Senior Manager of the Discover Universal team. He believes The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera to be the best ride ever to exist at Universal and is totally willing to die on that hill.
