This Is Universal

FIRST TIMERS | What do you get when you pair a Universal Parks superfan with a couple of first-timers? The answer is “This Is Universal,” a six-part docu-series that paired a very real super fan with a very real husband and wife.


In each episode, our superfan, Jake, showcases a different aspect of the experience of visiting Universal Orlando Resort. From an episode focused solely on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to an episode on dining to an episode on hotels, “This is Universal” introduces these first-timers to everything that makes Universal Orlando Resort so special in an informative—and extremely entertaining—way.
