The most amazing place ever. We were so blown away by the attention to detail. The staff are really friendly. We returned about 5 times during our two week stay. Can't wait to go back.

Absolutely brilliant! Our favourite part was the Harry Potter bit & the ride in hogwarts is a must do! I would defiantly head here first as it does get crowded. We also got chosen to pick a wand In Ollivanders Wand shop! Dr Seuss & Harry Potter were the only lands we explored as the rest didn't appeal to us.

We got fast passes so that we could get the most out of our day, we love Blutos barges which always guarantees a good soaking, thunder mountain also guarantees you will get wet. We had lunch in the restaurant in the Harry potter area ( one of the bucket list) and we even travelled from Islands of adventure to universal... More

Really good 3D-rides. The "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey" ride was awesome - one of the best rides we have tried. We recommend buying a "souvenier cup" for 12 dollars with unlimitid refill for the day.

Do not reach Orlando without visiting Universal studios and Island of adventure. Disney has its Magic, but Universal is an immersive experience that takes you deep into the world of movies. Give it two to three days at least.

My kids loved it - daughter even said it was better than disney. Now this included both universal parks not just one. Don't let anyone tell you a 4 and 7 year old are too young for universal parks!

Islands Of Adventure. Lots of fun for all ages and extended hours allows you to see everything. Plenty of places to eat

We went to the other side of Universal and it was OK, and we also did Sea World and Magic Kingdom. Islands of Adventure was our very favorite; we were so glad it was our last park...really put an exclamation point on the whole week. Our favorites were the Spiderman ride, and the Harry Potter 3D adventure (can't remember the... More

This was my most favourite park - go after 6pm, get cheap parking and the queue times are not so long. Fantastic fun times - you have to do it. Most scary = Hulk Coaster, most fun = Popeye (be prepared to get very wet. All the rides are fantastic - just do it!

Just spent 2 days at Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure. We went specifically for the WW of Harry Potter and Diagon Alley. We weren't disappointed! Both lands are the perfect re-creation of my imagination from the books/movies. Every single sign, brick and letter was personally approved by JK Rowling. Food (fish & chips; bread bowl stew; butter beer; pumpkin... More
