Each year, student groups converge in Orlando to visit its world-famous theme parks.  However, with so many groups now traveling, many are finding it harder to book time in some of them.  If you want some fun in the sun, an awesome learning experience, or a great performance venue, plan your student trip to Universal Orlando™ Resort in 2024!


About Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando™ is a fantastic choice for student groups.  It has two unique theme parks, separated by Universal CityWalk™, a hub for dining, shopping, and entertainment.

Universal Studios Florida™ is like being in a movie only with rides!  Transformers, Minions, dragons, and more- Universal Studios is one breathless adventure after another.

Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ is where the Wizarding World of Harry Potter co-exists peacefully with the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park (mostly!).  Thrilling rides, incredible shows, and everyone’s favorite characters are the perfect combination for students.

Beyond just amazing rides and attractions, though, Universal Orlando™ has a series of performance programs and workshops that make your visit fun and educational.


STARS Performance Programs

Universal Orlando™ is a top-notch performance venue for marching bands and ensembles.  International crowds are already there waiting to cheer on your students!  

STARS Stage 

Students can perform on the covered Lagoon Stage in Universal CityWalk between the parks.  It’s a spectacular setting to wow the crowds as they make their way to and from the parks.

STARS Marching

Give spectators a thrill as students take center stage marching through the streets of Universal Studios™.  They may even qualify to take part in the Superstar Parade, warming up the crowds before the main event!

STARS Workshops

The Master Class or the Audition Workshop are led by Universal choreographers and performers and conform to the National Core Arts Standards for Dance.  Both are fantastic opportunities to polish up your performance footwork!

Music Festivals

Performance groups can also take part in nationally recognized competitive and non-competitive festivals like OrlandoFest.  Perform before nationally renowned adjudicators with digitally recorded and written comments.  Wrap it up with an awards ceremony at Universal Orlando™.
