Christmas Eve Universal Studios Experience: Lunch, Studio Tour, & Springfield

Next on my Christmas Eve Universal Studios Experience: After Kung Fu Panda, Pets Off the Leash, & Minion Mayhem, I stopped for a quick lunch at one of the nearby eateries, before heading over to the Studio Tour. It was a 10 minute wait.

I have numerous photos & videos of the studio tour, some of which can be found here and here.


Then I headed to Springfield where I rode the Simpsons Ride and took a few photos with Homer & Bart.

The ride had a 30 minute wait, which was probably the longest wait of the day. Considering that it was Christmas Eve, that wasn’t too bad, although I think the weather had something to do with it.

My Thoughts on my Christmas Eve Universal Studios Experience

Honestly, my thoughts on this part of the day were just sort of ‘meh’. I enjoyed it, don’t get me wrong, but the studio tour and the Simpsons Ride don’t really rank with my top favorite rides. Definitely enjoyable, but if I’m not able to ride them, it’s not the end of the world.

Next in my Christmas Eve Universal Studios Experience was the lower lot rides. Watch out for my next post that talks about this.

  1. What a fun way to celebrate Christmas Eve! Personally, I really like the Simpsons ride but I’m not much of a ride person and it is about my extreme! I can understand why ride lovers might feel underwhelmed! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    1. I enjoyed the Simpsons Ride as well–it’s just not my favorite. I’m the kind of person who likes to ride anything and everything for the most part, and I love Universal and just about everything about it. My comments weren’t so much a dislike of the Simpsons Ride, but a means of comparison between it and the other rides. Of all the rides, I just don’t think it is worth the long wait time that goes along with it–especially when I can get on Forbidden Journey, which rates much higher on my list, with no wait in the single rider line.

  2. That’s good to know that it wasn’t that interesting to visit. I do think the Simpsons part would be fun!

  3. Thanks for the honest review! I don’t like waiting in lines much (who does?!) so it’s good to know it may not be worth the 30 minute wait. Sound really fun otherwise!
