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.

“Harry did NOT disappoint!”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

The entire world of Harry Potter was everything I expected and more. The rides were intense, the food was yummy and the wand experience at Ollivander's was exceptional. I think the only bad side was in the wand shop. We waited 45 minutes with 3 kids who wanted to have a wand choose them. We were shuffled into the shop with 25 other people and the performance began. My son was chosen to select a wand to see if he could perform magic with it. After several different ones, my son waved the wand above his head and the lights flickered. Doors opened and closed and winds swirled around us. The wand chose him! After agreeing to buy the wand, we were ushered out. Only one child was allowed to have the experience!! A lot of disappointed people left Ollivanders. It's not fair really.

“harry potter”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Really incredible. Get there early as it gets packed in like sardins. go through the single rider line. When the lines are 2-3 hours long you can get through the single rider line in under a half an hour. We had five of us and the single rider line is the only way to go on any rides where there is single rider line.

“Butterbeer is delicious”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Unfortunately it was terribly crowded first thing in the morning. We waited 2 hours for the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. Later in the afternoon we went back and only waited about 45 minutes. Less crowded in the afternoon.

“So much fun!!!”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Took my 3 kids and we had a blast! Only planned on going 2 days, but went 3 just for Harry Potter. The Dragon Challenge ride is great - The Forbidden Journey is amazing and the entire park just sucks you into the world of HP. I'm not a huge fan - read the books, watched the movies - and even I was acting like a kid again! Very cool and a must see for one who enjoyed the books and/or movies.
