Owner description: 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.

“Great buildings, great rides, great memories.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

It was a beautiful set. Obviously great creative minds were at work planning this park. We began at this part of the park and ended here. The food at the Three Broomsticks was excellent. We ate lunch there and came back for supper.

“A Must for everyone!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Harry Potter's world was breathtaking!! The snow covered roof tops and structure and designs of the castle were amazing!! You feel like you are in Harry Potter's world. You must try the butter beer!! Sooo good! The ride was really cool and the roller coasters were fun!! This was by far a favorite of ours!! Can't wait to go back!!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

We went to America in 2011, and our main reason for going was to visit this attraction! And we were not disappointed! The day we visited there had been some rain, so thankfully it was quieter than expected! As we went with our two sons, who are in their 20's, it was a great experience for us all! We lapped up the atmosphere, watched the choir singing, with frogs, saw the playfights, went into Olivanders wand shop (well worth the visit!!), walked through the school to the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride, which we found to be excellent, and went on the Dragon Challenge! We also had lunch in the Three Broomsticks, which was excellent! We also visited the Hogs Head Pub and bought sweets in Honeydukes - and yes they do sell the bogie flavoured sweets! But for me the most enjoyable thing was the Butterbeer, I bought mine in a special glass, and the drink was to die for! By the time we went into the Hog's Head it had warmed up so we were all gasping for a drink, so it was like nectar! It is quite sweet, but it really is delicious! You have to have some when you visit! All in all this attraction lived up to all our expectations, so much so that we paid a second visit, this time just walking through and taking in the atmosphere!
TIP: GET HERE EARLY, VISIT FIRST THING. EAT EARLY IN THE RESTAURANT FOR LUNCH!

“A must visit when in Orlando, Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

I am a annual pass holder at Universal Studios Florida and regularly visit. And The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is certainly the highlight at this park. You must try the Butter Beer at least once. Since this is the latest major addition to the park, it can be very busy and packed, but it is worth the experieince. The Harry Potter ride is exilerating and a must to do while at the park. You don't necessarily have to be a Harry Potter enthusiast to enjoy this attraction. Unfortunately, the fast pass does not work for this attraction, but don't let that stop you from visiting this incredible attraction.

It was excellent to see Hogsmeade, taste Butter beer and go on the brilliant Forbidden Journey ride. Made the crowds worth it!
