As we move into October we want to help you plan your upcoming trip to the Universal Orlando Resort.

Every month the Universal Orlando Resort needs to perform refurbishments on some of its attractions. These refurbishments are very important for the upkeep of the theme parks, however, it may mean that your favorite attraction may not be open when you visit. Today, we break down every attraction that will be closed in October 2021.

Thankfully, if you have a trip planned to the Universal Orlando Resort in October there are not many attractions that will be closed for refurbishments. However, some shows may be shown as “unavailable attractions” but truly they are replaced with other shows for the Halloween season. Meaning there is plenty of entertainment available to you for your October Universal vacation!

The Nighttime Lights At Hogwarts Castle is currently not showing, but do not worry! There is still a show on Hogwarts Castle! The Dark Arts At Hogwarts Castle is happening every night when the sun goes down and transforms Hogwarts for the Halloween season.

Volcano Bay

Volcano Bay will only have one attraction closed for refurbishment in October. Maku of the Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides will be unavailable in October, so despite it being Halloween season, with the warm Florida sun, you should still be able to enjoy a full day at Volcano Bay.
