Shopping at Universal CityWalk

| | | 0 comments

Universal CityWalk is Universal Orlando Resort’s dining, shopping, and entertainment area. This section of the resort can be enjoyed without paid admission and offers guests a myriad of restaurants, unique retails locations, lively entertainment and more. The place really gets jumping in the evenings when the area becomes a bustling nightlife center. CityWalk sits adjacent to the resort’s two theme parks, just steps from their gates, making it what Universal calls the “Epicenter of Awesome”.

Universal CityWalk contains a good selection of dedicated retail locations and a few free-standing outdoor carts selling everything from t-shirts to tattoos. Universal guests can enjoy shopping while taking a break from the parks or while taking in CityWalk’s entertainment and dining offerings. CityWalk’s convenient location right outside the parks and near most onsite hotels makes the area perfect for recharging your park touring batteries while enjoying the vibrant waterfront setting.
