You’ve probably spent countless hours watching him on Saturday mornings and even spent a few Christmases hunting him down for your excited child to play with on Christmas morning. He’s Barney the purple dinosaur and there is no denying kids love to watch him dance and clap the day away. And now you can experience the popular dinosaur outside of the television at A Day in the Park with Barney at Universal Orlando!

There is no better way for your children to get their Barney fix than at this incredible Universal attraction. In fact, there is no other way. A Day in the Park with Barney is the only place on Earth where kids can meet Barney and his friends Bay Bop and BJ live in a sing-along, clap-along musical show that is sure to have your children smiling and clapping for the rest of the day.

Your fun-filled adventure begins when you and the kids enter the indoor theater set to look like a peaceful park setting filled with brightly colored trees, flowers, benches and even stars. Barney and his friends will appear and immediately start singing their favorite songs, both old and new including “Mr. Knickerbocker,” “If All the Raindrops,” “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” and “I Love You.” As they do you will experience the seasons as leaves fall from the sky and snowflakes flutter down. The day will even turn to night as the stars come out and other surprises take you away to Barney’s magical world.

And to ensure the kids are engaged and entertained the entire time there is no more than 20 to 30 seconds of talk betweens songs. So your kids will be dancing and bopping the entire time. It is worth mentioning that there is one point in the show where the theater goes completely dark to introduce a song about imagination, and there are a couple of seconds of thunder and lightning before “If All the Raindrops.”

After your children sing, dance and clap along with Barney and friends, let them play in Barney’s Backyard, a unique and interactive play area where they can engage in sand play, create echo tunnels, play with chimes and a musical fountain.

A Day in the Park with Barney show times are 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.. The show is approximately 25 minutes.
