Helpful Tips

Before diving into the dining reservations, here are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Guests staying at Universal Orlando premier hotels have priority seating for dining reservations as one of the perks of their stay.
  • However, priority seating is different from actual reservations. We will discuss this further in our FAQs section.
  • The Universal Orlando premier hotels include Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, and the Royal Pacific Resort.
  • All the restaurants mentioned in this guide offer priority seating for the premier hotels unless stated otherwise.
  • If you are staying at a premier hotel and struggle to get a dining reservation, don't hesitate to seek assistance from the concierge. They often have more availability than you might think.
  • Many of the restaurants at Universal Orlando Resort are not operated by Universal Studios, which is why there is no central reservation number.
  • However, there is a central reservations page that directs you to the booking engines for each restaurant.
  • Remember that you need theme park admission to dine at any restaurants inside Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure.
  • Unfortunately, there are no reservations available for the Harry Potter restaurants in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter lands.

FAQs

What Are the Hardest Dining Reservations to Get at Universal Studios?

There are a few restaurants at Universal Orlando Resort that are more popular than others. If you're keen to experience these full-service restaurants, make sure to book a reservation as soon as possible. They include Toothsome Chocolate Factory, Mythos in Islands of Adventure, Palm Restaurant at Hard Rock Hotel, Bice Ristorante at Portofino Bay Hotel, and Mamma Della’s Ristorante Portofino Bay Hotel.

How Far Out Do I Need to Make Universal Dining Reservations?

While there is more flexibility and less chaos compared to Walt Disney World reservations, it's still important to plan ahead. Although you can start booking reservations around 6 months in advance, it may not be necessary. If you have a specific restaurant in mind, it's wise to make reservations as early as possible to secure your desired time and date. For special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries, it's best to book as soon as you can. While you may find available reservations a few weeks before your visit, popular restaurants at peak times are becoming harder to secure.

What is the Difference Between Priority Seating and Reservations?

Reservations provide you with a specific time frame for potential seating. Keep in mind that seating is subject to availability, so your reservation time is not guaranteed until an empty table is available. On the other hand, priority seating means you will be called for your table before another guest who walked in and put their name on the waiting list. With priority seating, there is no guaranteed time frame for seating.

Do I Need to Pay for Parking?

Yes, you will need to pay for parking at any Universal Orlando restaurant, whether in the theme parks, hotels, or Universal CityWalk. However, there are a few hotels that offer validated parking fees or discounted valet rates when dining and meeting the minimum food purchase requirement. Be sure to call ahead to confirm current policies. The hotels that provide these options include Bice Ristorante at Portofino Bay, Mama Della’s Ristorante at Portofino Bay, Jake’s American Bar at Royal Pacific, Islands Dining Room at Royal Pacific, Strong Water Tavern at Sapphire Falls, Amatista Cookhouse at Sapphire Falls, and The Palm at Hard Rock Hotel (complimentary valet).
