Heading to Universal Orlando? Wondering if there will be things to do for your Younger Ones? Never Fear – Everyone in your family can have an Epic Adventure at Universal Orlando!

Universal Orlando has great themed playgrounds, requires less planning, has close, on-site resorts that are quickly accessed for those afternoon naps, and provides compact parks – so less walking!

If you are looking for specific attractions for those 38” or under, here are my top 10 Things for Kids Under 10!

Islands of Adventure

Meet your traditional comic book Heroes such as Spider Man, Wolverine and Captain America in the streets of Super Hero Island! They appear throughout the day so just check your Park Guide for the Times Under “Character Zones”.
