I’m beyond excited to introduce Universal Park and Resorts’ official Discover Universal Podcast. In this show, our goal is to help you plan the best vacation possible — or, if you’re already a fan, get more of what you already love about the theme parks. I myself am a huge fan of the parks and, with a background in media, I am so excited to be the executive producer of our first podcast.
Our expert hosts will give you vacation tips and thoughtful recommendations, and take you behind the scenes of the three parks at Universal Orlando Resort (Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay), as well as our park in California, Universal Studios Hollywood. We have so much planned for this show — interviews with VIP guests, sending our hosts into the parks to experience some of the most exciting and thrilling attractions, and there might even be a few games in store.
The first season will be all about helping you plan your vacation with a series of in-depth overviews of our theme parks, hotels, and immersive lands. Our hosts will be your guides, sharing their love for and extensive knowledge of the Orlando and Hollywood destinations.
We can’t wait to show you all the amazing things we have to offer to help you plan your dream vacation.
