Great trip! Loved Skull island & reign of King. Our favorite part was Hogwarts. Frozen Butter beer is must try. Hogwarts express very cool. This place is great for all ages. Lots of shops and places to eat. Our kids ranged from 12 & 23 and everyone loved it. We will be back to visit.

What can I say about this park that hasn't been said before by thousands of people. I really wanted to go just to ride the Hogwarts express and get myself an interactive Harry Potter wand.

First, and foremost, download the Universal Studios app....you'll want to know ride wait times before walking around aimlessly (Bonus hint: you CANNOT travel on the Hogwarts Express Train to London/Diagon Alley in Universal Studios unless you have park-to park-to tickets). If you are staying/lodging on Universal property, you will have one hour early access to either Island of Adventure or... More

I loved this park, the roller Coasters are awesome, and all the attractions are really great, but I came out with a feeling that it was somehow less than I imagined. I think the park is still expanding but I missed more Adventure, more Roller coasters. And the lines, OMG, so huge.

This is a great place to visit. Check the roller coasters make you feel the adrenaline in the different sections. Also make sure you buy a refill bottle and you can get unlimited refills for a day or two. The express ticket which is expensive than the regular is a good option to skill long lines and enjoy the rest... More

Lots of walking! We did about 7 miles a day but it was well worth it. The rides are wonderful and the food is everywhere. Many places to take a break and get a drink if needed.

I spent a whole day in the wizarding world of harry potter because that was the reason i came to Orlando. But the second day was amazing when i got to discover the remaining part of the park: Skull island, Jurassic park, Comic Strip, etc. I was amazed. I was so surprised. I honestly thought only the HP part wuld... More

We were at the Islands of Adventure two 1/2 days. Everyone who worked there said the crowds were low, but it didn't seem that way to us. We got up for early admission and hiked it to Hogwarts castle. My sister and I were able to walk through the not-riding line more at our leisure to enjoy the insides of... More

I have three kids who are 8,7 and 4. The big kids had a great time here and the 4 year old liked the Dr Sues stuff but I spent a lot of time pushing her around in a stroller while the big kids rode rides with their dad. Big kids LOVED it!!
