Arrived early to avoid the queues. 8.30am. Universal have out Disneyed Disney with Hogwarts, awsome buildings and surroundings. Ride said 1hour wait, but only took 35mins, with plenty to see in the line. I cannot give you any spoilers for the ride, except, there is simply no other ride like it in the world! Butterbeer is sweet and best shared.... More

I have read several reviews of this place and am surprised how totally positive they are. I'm glad I went, but....I would and did advise everyone to skip Ollivander's until they fix it. It was a 45 minute wait for something that was like a garage attraction in the neighborhood on Halloween. Lame. Specifically, they used a flash bulb instead... More

My sister and I are twenty something's (or she is and I was) and we came to Orlando specifically to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We were not disappointed. We entered the village an hour early and got to look upon Orlando's rendering of Hogsmeade without many visitors about. We both had tears in our eyes as we... More

Spent three weeks in Orlando from March 25th to April 15th and went to IOA at least four times. Our son age 8 was above the minimum height for all rides when we measured him at the front entrance but when we went to Dragon Challenge coaster, he was over 2cm smaller than minimum height measurement at entrance of ride....

The forbidden journey is the best ride by far, the frozen butter beer a must for those hot summer days, a must for all HP fans. Looking forward to visiting Diagon Alley this year, waiting anxiously for the opening date, but confident that it will be open for our visit in October this year. It is usually very busy in... More

I have lived in Orlando for 25 years and visited all the parks and Wizarding World of Harry Potter is by far my personal favorite attraction! The food, shops, rides are all top notch, A+, número uno. If you can only do one park while you are here, go to Wizarding World of HP!!!

The exclusive ride inside the magical castle is simply amazing! Butterbeer is the best magical drink you could possible taste. The Dragon Challenge the smoothest coaster you will ever ride. Honeydukes exactly as expected devilishly sweet, and The Three Broomsticks has the best magical meals. The Frog Choir and Triwizard tournament Pep Rally were riveting. Ollivanders where the wand just... More

First ride I have been on that dose it so differently, but I cant tell you why! You have to experience it for your self. The Castle is very well done, but your speeded along... More

I loved this place. And the flying ride is awesome. Loved the butter beer and the wand shop show is great. It really looks good too. They are adding new things. It's all good but the price. I think all of these parks are too expensive.
