The attention to detail is great, and you feel like you stepped into the book. My teenagers really enjoyed it. The ride is fantastic, but expect a long wait. You may be tempted to buy a Butterbeer for $6.99, but keep in mind, it's just cream soda. All in all, it's a fun experience if you're a fan.

Our girls love Harry Potter. They loved this part of the trip. The design and feel of the Harry Potter world was so authentic. It was busy during spring break. Go early or later in the evening. Need park-to-park option to ride the Hogwarts train between parks. Each direction has different views and stories. During spring break, have the express ride option is very helpful to reduce waits. Would be worth staying at one of the Universal hotel to get free express passes

We were looking forward to this adventure to universal studios and Harry Potter was our main reason to go!
We were not disappointed- it was amazing. A die hard family of Potter fans- we did “everything”.
We have two teens and two kids 7 & 10.
It was a wondrous day that we would repeat in a heartbeat.

I can honestly say I am truly impressed with the attention to the details. A ride on the Hogwarts Express is truly magical. I think most children will love the interactive wands and doing the "spells.". My grandson was thrilled. He is 7. However, I saw many adults with wands as well.

We loved our trip here. The World of Harry Potter was the reason we came to Orlando, and it did not disappoint. I would come again, particularly if this part of a Universal was expanded with more!
