Description: There are many ways to enjoy your Orlando vacation, but there is only one...
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.

Make sure you take in all the detail on the way to the ride, so much to miss out on if just focused on getting to front of the queue, don't wear shoes that fall off easily !,

I read several reviews before we visited and the reviews did not miss the mark. This is amazing! We came with my brother's family who had not read the books nor seen movies and they loved it...imagine how it was for our family who is a very big Harry Potter fan! Magical!

We recently traveled to WWHP and it was amazing! A true thrill for HP fans like us. It was so magical to feel like we were actually at Hogwarts and the village. Try the Butter beer, you won't be disappointed!

The long queues are worth the wait for the ride, this is one of the best theme parks. Highly recommend The Simpson ride & Spider-Man for families.

Stay at one of the Universal hotels. Much easier to enjoy in the early morning before the crowds descend.

The wait times for this ride are always long - best thing is to get there as early as possible to avoid what can sometimes be over a two hour line. However, it's well worth the wait. You actually feel like you are flying through the air behind Harry and his friends. The special effects are awesome and I can't... More

Even if you are not a Potter fan, this area of the park will entertain everyone including those who have never read J K Rowling's great books. My 8 year old granddaughter enjoyed it more as the area brings the books to life. Very, very clever indeed. Well done, Universal Studios on yet another brilliant, entertaining area of the park,...

I say it was good. Maybe it was because it was too crowded but I found it small and full of stores The setting is awesome, you can see the dragon, the buildings just as in the movies, etc., but it was full of school kids with very bad behavior. That was a shame Anyway, we got to walk through... More
