Family Trip to Universal Studios Hollywood

Spring Break is only a month away and now is the time to start planning your family’s school-free week! And what better way to spend time with your kids than to take them to Universal Studios Hollywood? Leave the planning to us, read our complete Universal guide below and enjoy your family time this spring!


When to Go

While the exact week of Spring Break is usually different from school to school, most breaks take place in the month of March. And luckily, March is a great time to visit Universal Studios Hollywood! The “Is It Packed” crowd calendar shows that the park is relatively empty on weekdays for the first three weeks of March. Weekends are more crowded, so it might be smart to plan your stay during the week and leave by the weekend. Park hours vary throughout March, but the park is generally open from 10a-7p during weekdays. Check out this park hours calendar for specific open and closing times.


What to Do

Universal Studios Hollywood has plenty of things to do for family members of all ages. Little ones can have fun in Super Silly Fun Land, a complete replication of the carnival featured in the movie Despicable Me. Tweens and teens (and parents) can ride any of the movie-themed rides, or explore the magical Harry Potter World. The World-Famous Studio Tour is another popular attraction at Universal, taking visitors through a behind-the-scenes look at movie making secrets. The sets on this tour were built with creative help from Steven Spielberg himself! Hollywood-inspired restaurants, pubs and food stands also populate the park, all with their own unique food offerings.


Where to Stay

With Disney and Universal resorts galore, it can sometimes be overwhelming to choose a hotel that best suits your family’s needs.
