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.

Kids enjoyed the whole atmosphere. The train ride the little different Magic tricks and the roller coaster. If you're a fan a must.

Do this part first. It's is entertaining while you wait for the ride but gets very crowded and the ride time is actually kind of short but I'm not a Potter fanatic so some of the lure may have passed over my head.

this was shut down during our visit to universal so we were dsappointed. They didn't have any way to communicate if a ride would be back online, except to check back.

The attention to detail here is brilliant, our entire party loved it. The rides are outstanding, and the theming of the area is everything you would hope it would be, and more.

Universal has done a great job in developing this theme park. The Harry Potter Forbidden Journey Ride is fantastic

My kids loved the train ride across and they haven't even seen the Harry Potter movies. They had a fun roller coaster for the little kids, but it was too bad they were not big enough for the other ride.

This 4D ride will take you to another level of awesomeness. Just the castle tour alone is great and even if you have small children, parents can still take turns riding. Don't miss out. It's totally worth riding.
