A well-organized transportation system connects theme parks, hotels, CityWalk, and parking lots across Universal Orlando and the surrounding area.

The transportation at Universal Studios promises travelers a seamless experience.

It includes buses, water taxis, escalators, elevators, moving walkways, and pathways.

Let’s dive deep into the Universal Studios Orlando attractions map for individual parks.

Universal Studios Florida

In a circular pattern from the entrance, Universal Studios Florida boasts eight themed zones: Production Central, New York, San Francisco, London/Diagon Alley, World Expo, Springfield, Woody Woodpecker’s Kidzone, and Hollywood. 

Each section has various rides, shows, attractions, character encounters, culinary options, and retail establishments.

The first section of Production Central consists of the famous Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit music-themed roller coaster ride. 

It also has Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and Transformers: The Ride 3D, which are exciting.   

Make your way through Revenge of the Mummy and lunch at Finnegan’s Bar and Grill or one of the many other dining outlets in New York.

You may enter San Francisco if you’re a fan of the film franchise, “Fast and the Furious.”

Next in line is the most popular zone, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter—Diagon Alley/London. 

This zone is connected to Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure by the Hogwarts Express, which visitors frequently use to travel between the two parks.

Be sure to book a park-to-park ticket to access the train.

Your path to Hollywood will take you past Men in Black: Alien Attack at the World Expo, The Simpsons Ride in Springfield, and E.T. Adventure at Woody Woodpecker’s Kidzone.

Shows like Universal Orlando’s Horror Make-Up Show, The Bourne Stuntacular, and Marilyn and the Diamond Bellas will keep you entertained here.

Islands of Adventure

Islands of Adventure is made up of eight additional themed zones, or “islands,” precisely in a clockwise direction from the entrance, similar to Universal Studios Florida: 

  • Port of Entry
  • Marvel Super Hero Island
  • Toon Lagoon 
  • Skull Island
  • Jurassic Park 
  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
  • The Lost Continent
  • Seuss Landing

The park’s main entry point, the Port of Entry, houses the Pharos Lighthouse and several stores and other facilities.

Something is exciting for all the Marvel fans, too! 

You can find all things Marvel on Marvel Super Hero Island, including rides like The Incredible Hulk Coaster and The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, meet-and-greet attractions, and various restaurants and retail outlets. 

Enjoy water-based rides at the cartoon and comic strip character-inspired Toon Lagoon.

Moreover, Skull Island and Jurassic Park have rides based on popular motion pictures.

Themed around the Harry Potter universe, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must-visit. This section features numerous attractions, live shows, restaurants, and shops. 

Also, remember to get a butterbeer here. 

The Lost Continent, based on legends and mythology from the past, includes the interactive Mystic Fountain and the special effects show Poseidon’s Fury.

The last stop, Seuss Landing, contains a variety of attractions inspired by Dr. Seuss, in addition to restaurants and shops.

Volcano Bay

The Universal Orlando water park, Volcano Bay, has four sections, each based on different Polynesian islands and customs:

  • Krakatau
  • Wave Village
  • River Village
  • Rainforest Village

At the center of the park sits a 200-foot-tall (61 m) volcano, “Krakatau.”

The Krakatau Aqua Coaster will transport you deep inside the Krakatau volcano before dropping you through a sparkling waterfall.

After a 70-degree drop at Ko’okiri Body Plunge, relax and sunbathe at Wave Village’s pools, such as Puka Uli Lagoon, Waturi Beach, and The Reef.

The River Village hosts kid- and family-friendly rides, like Kopiko Wai Winding River, Tot Tiki, Reef Honu, and more.

Several thrilling slides are available in Rainforest Village’s last zone, including Maku, Puihi, TeAwa, The Fearless River, and Taniwha Tubes.
