There are many ways to enjoy your Orlando vacation, but there is only one place where vacation becomes adventure: Universal Orlando Resort. It is a unique destination featuring two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure, three magnificently themed on-site hotels and a nighttime entertainment complex. It's the only Orlando destination where you are not just entertained - you become part of the most exhilarating entertainment ever created. You can soar above Hogwarts with Harry Potter, swing above the streets with Spider-Man, battle aliens alongside Agent J, and help Shrek save Princess Fiona in Shrek 4-D. Now open: the new, heart-warming and hilarious Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride. And coming soon: Transformers The Ride-3D. Universal Orlando Resort is part of NBCUniversal, a Comcast company.

Where to start... this place is heavenly. I was in love ever since hogsmead opened, but when they opened diagon alley and the hogwarts express, i can't help but cry tears of joy everytime we go. Seriously, every little detail makes this place as magical as we could have hoped. Even people who aren't harry potter fans have told me... More

Absolutely loved going to Universal to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Even my young children loved it because they were able to get actual wands and preform "Magic" around the park. We had so much fun!

If you are a Harry Potter fan, then you will love this. Amazing reconstruction of the film sets, and amazing rides. You need to visit both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure to get to see both sides of the Harry Potter Wizarding World, but it was so worth it. Going in mid-Jan was ideal. No queues, so we were... More

I had the annual pass for 3 years. It was completely worth it. I had blocked days but it was during days that I would normally not attend because I knew the crowds are crazy. The Harry Potter world at this park and the one in Universal Studios is spectacular. Even though the wizarding world out of the two is... More

The design of this part of IoA makes you feel like you are in the book. Details are spot on. Food options are authentic and delicious. Shops are cute and quirky. Ollivander's experience is cute. Be prepared to buy your kid a wand for $50-they'll want one. Wands are NOT free if you're chosen by Ollivander. Team members add to... More

This is a place that any Harry Potter fan would dream of going too. We had to go on every ride several times and take every photo opportunity . Train was way over crowed

Important stuff first: Try a frozen Butter Beer (taste like a butterscotch Frappuccino). Now, onto the other stuff.... If you are staying/lodging on Universal property, take advantage of the one hour early park entry. One of the two parks (Island of Adventure and Universal Studios) will open an hour early to their respective World of Harry Potter. If in Hogsmeade,... More

Every bit of the detail is here! Even the non-Harry Potter fans in the group were impressed! Get there early or go back later in the day; mid day is very very busy!

I visited The Wizarding World expecting to be blown away, and they sure did it. The simulators are great (although the waiting time is super long) you really feel like you are in the movie. The castle reminds the one in the movies, same Pictures and everything. Diagonal Alley and Hogsmade are the greatest things. Totally worth it, especially if... More
