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.

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

First off, I want to preface it to say for others who may read this review, NO Express passes work in the Harry Potter area, and probably won't for many years to come. In any case I have been here multiple times and am happier with every return visit. I love the castle and actually find myself disappointed when the line goes too fast because then I don't have enough time to take in the details! I realize the shops are small and difficult to navigate when it is busy, but their size adds to the boutique nature of the place. I really love it there, and since it is the only park like it in the world (well, I guess Japan's just opened), I expect it to be really busy all year round. I cannot wait until Diagon Alley opens.

“Amazing likeness to movie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

My daughter and me are a big fan of HP and we were not disappointed. The castle was a lot of details and references to the movie, Hogsmeade is amazing and the rides are fun. We can wait to go back with the Hogwarts express and Gringotts bank rides ready.

“Well worth the trip and the wait time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Loved the attraction and the fans and water misters while standing in line. Even if you never read the books or saw the movies, it is still enjoyable to experience.

“Must Do for all Harry Fans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Our family of 6 at here for lunch. It was awesome that the servers find you a table so you don't have to do any hunting. I had split pea soup and salad. Others ordered fish and chips or the shephearders pie. Everyone tried butterbeer and pumpkin juice. It was a decent meal and great respite from the zillions of people in the park that day. The attention to detail is AH MAZING. A definite must do for all Harry fans.

As an adult parent I'm not a huge fan of Harry Potter but this Wizarding World instantly casts a spell on you once you enter the grounds. The streetscape is remarkably realistic and magical while the castle is truly mesmerizing in the distance. With the early access expect to wait about 10 minutes for the amazing Forbidden Journey ride otherwise it's at least 30 minutes when the park officially opens. Treat yourself to the Great Feast Platter at the Three Broomsticks restaurant while you take in the incredible atmosphere.
