After a frustrating day in universal studio it was refreshing to find out that rides of similar quality had waiting times less than 15mins.We had to complete the rides from the previous day at Universal studio early before taking the Hogwarts express train to get to Islands of Adventure.

Love this place, came back to this place 4 straight days.The kids really enjoyed all the rides and things to do, but for me it was hearing the voice of Mr. Morgan Freeman, doing story about Universal at the end of the night, with the fire-works, this was great for me.

I used not to like this park, but since Harry Potter opened it has become one of my favorites. It's a must see.

Queues into Diagon Alley were enormous once the park opened to the general public, we were lucky and as we stayed at the Loews could get in 1 hour early.

I did get a thrill out of the roller coasters. And I enjoyed watching my son, niece and nephew having fun. August is not a time I want to ever visit Orlando again, way too hot stomping around a park for hours on end. Was nice they allow people to bring drinks and snacks in as everything inside is spendy.... More
