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.

The main reason for me and fiancé visiting Florida was to attend The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We both are massive fans and decided our holiday would be full of Potter. When we entered through the hole in the wall on to Diagon Alley we both had tears in our eyes. It was like we had entered the books... More

Definitely the highlight of my trip to Orlando!!! I am a big Harry Potter fan and this attraction exceeded my expectations to say the least. The shop attendants are dressed in costume, as are many of the visitors too. The park makes it feel like you've stepped into the film itself, just incredible. Butterbeer is in high demand in the...

For Harry Potter fans of all ages, going to this corner of Islands of Adventure is a lot of fun. During peak times, the waits will get very long. Fortunately, the queue designers make the queues largely interesting. I personally didn't feel up to going on the roller coasters even though they are well designed. I did go on the... More

Was looking forward but didn't expect it to be as good as this. I was lost in the films and walking round like a child. This place is not to be missed

Universal has done an outstanding job with both parks of Harry Potter! Loved it! My favorites were the Gringott's ride and the dragon on top of Gringott's. Oh and of course the dueling dragons roller coasters!
