Don't bother with the Express Pass if you elect to go to Universal. It's not accepted on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and the staff does a poor job enforcing it's use on other rides. We saw more than one incident where someone in front of or behind us didn't have a pass but was allowed to enter the... More

Besides the convenience of staying on property, you and your entire family can get an unlimited Express Pass which allows you to skip the long lines. While we were there on January 13 and 14 which is not peak park hours, the lines was still in the 30 to 45 minute wait. By using the Express Pass, we were able... More

Came here with my sister, had a great time. As both of us are Harry Potter fans, visiting Wizarding World of Harry Potter was a magical experience for both of us. We visited here during the MLK weekend, so both theme parks were quite busy, so I recommend getting an Express Pass for busier seasons.

My first visit! They do a great job making Christmas magical with the Macy's parade, Superstar parade, themed Characters, the Grinchmas show, and holiday decorations everywhere you turn. It was one of the best Christmas experiences I have ever had. My favorite ride was the Harry Potter ride in Islands of Adventure.

Good place for a fun day with the family. Good for families with older more adventurous kids. Lots of roller coasters and simulator/3D rides. Also a lot of good places to get something to eat and for adults beer or mixed drinks.

Really enjoyed the new Harry Pitter designed 'world' at Universal. Kept to Rowling's creative description and also full of story, interactive magic, and loved the Butterbeer. Fish and Chips at Leaky Cauldron very good. Wish the Race thru New York was finished- not open till April 6. Skip Transformers! Sickening and broke down. Street shows entertaining. Blues Bros were the... More

Universal Orlando is a great place to visit as a family or anniversary. My family and I came here in June, and we decided to return for our 25th anniversary. We love the Harry Potter attractions, and Revenge of the Mummy, the #1 indoor roller coaster for 6 years straight. Definitely recommended for a great time!
