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.

It's very cool to just walk into. One minute you are in an amusement park and you turn the corner and the next minute you are immersed into the world of Harry Potter with old houses with snow on them and a castle looming large above them. The staff plays their rolls well and it's fun to lose yourself into... More

This park can get very busy after lunch. Went the weekend before thanks giving (Saturday) and the crowd was manageable. Watching 20 something year-olds wandering around with capes and wands was a bit discouraging.

This whole area has been changed over the past two years with so much to see from London to Hogwarts. All the shops you would expect from Diagon Alley and many more. The train journey is very cleverly put together. Did not go on the ride as we did that last time but good to see all the new attractions.

If you love Harry Potter you must visit this. There is so much to see and shop. The rollercoasters are so much fun (Best on in the entire park is The Hulk though) and they I done everything in so much detail.

Great experience, not an avid Harry Potter fan but the atmosphere was brilliant and the detail was fantastic. Plenty of places to eat and drink.

Whether you have read all the books or watched the movies, you will be entertained in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There are rides, a small village, restaurants, shops and activities all based on Harry Potter and friends. You can buy a wizards wand, school uniform, "butter beer" and other things based on the books.

The Harry Potter sections of the park are insanely detailed. Super fun to explore and find all the cool stuff going on in there. I will say they are absolutely slaying people as far as costs go therearn but worth it overall!

It was alright. The best experience was the Hogwarts Express. It is a different experience coming and going. There weren't enough rides and they could have done so much more with the merchandizing. I always look at it and say, "Disney would have had every detail perfect." The rides rely way too much on 3D simulation to really be great.
