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.

“Like a dream come true”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

It was always in my imagination to be in a world of the wizards, this ride gave me the opportunity to experience it. Amazing. Loved it. I was screaming on top of my voice as "Save me Harry Potter". Lolz. Went with a group of friends and everyone had fun. It was a 1 hour wait and was totally worth it.

“Have a butterbeer at Harry Potter World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

This was really fun. I just read the Harry Potter books because my granddaughter is a big fan. She is the reason we went to Universal and the books were why she wanted to go. It is like stepping onto the pages of the book. We did not go on the ride, but had a great time walking around in front of Hogwart's, getting a want at Olivard's, eating and having a butter beer at the Three Broomsticks, buying some chocolate frogs and other candy at Honeydukes. It is kind of a dream come true for anyone who reads to be able to see the setting of a beloved book. The new Harry Potter was not open yet, I am sure that will be fun as well.

“Journey to Hogwarts!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

The Wizarding World is very impressive and they have done a great job in replicating Hogwarts.There are a total of three rides in this attraction.The Flight of the Hippogriff is a family roller coaster and the other is a ferocious roller coaster called "Dragon's Challenge".But the best ride is the "Forbidden Journey" and is not a roller coaster but a simulated ride which i enjoyed a lot.
Fish and chips at "The Three Broomsticks" was pretty good and the decor was something wonderful to see and admire.The slush butterbeer was delicious!!!!!!!! Don't miss it.
