This is an activity that equals or betters it’s Disney opposition. Having seen the films the attraction mirrors them, so much that we wanted to watch the films again. Despite the huge crowds we still did what we wanted to do. Definitely worth a visit...More

Yes, it looked super cool... but, it was smaller than depicted in commercials. Also rode the Flight of Hippodriff, and it not only wasn't that fun, but the ride was super uncomfortable. I saw 2 people who couldn't ride due to their size, and they...More

A truly great experience! Really well done, although only a couple of rides and mostly shops. Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts train were wonderful. You need the park hopper to rude the train but well worth it.

You have to get the park to park to be able to enjoy the full Harry Potter experience. This is a must do for any Harry Potter fan. Make sure you ride the Hogwarts Express

Universal Studios created quite the replica as you stroll through Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. First time I have had to purchase tickets to two parks to enjoy one attraction though.

Only ride we did was the Hogwarts Express but just being there is like walking into the movie. plenty of shops and restaurants to spend hours enjoying. During the Christmas season they have a choir and light show that is not to be missed.
