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.

If you love the Harry Potter book and film series you'll love Harry Potter World at Universal Studios Orlando. The street and shops look identical to the ones in the film and there is even a dark and creepy Knockturn Alley. The rides at both parks are worth waiting in line for even if you don't know anything about the... More

New Years Day headed over to Universal and spent some time at the Harry Potter areas at US and IOA. I just love walking through Hogsmeade - wearing my Slytherin lanyard proudly. We always get our Butterbeer and go on the "forbidden Journey". The line is usually pretty long but during this time you get further immersed in the HP... More

What a treat this was. We almost missed this as it is true to the Harry Potter books that the entrance looks nothing and is not marked as a Harry Potter venue. Follow the people going in and you will be overwhelmed. I don't want to say more and spoil it. This was one of the highlights of our trip.... More

Another great Harry Potter ride. One of the top attraction rides I have every went on. Both Harry Potter rides are good. We got to the park before it opened and walked right on which is a nice time saver.

The world is really well done. The frozen butterbeer was a big hit with our family. The main ride Forbidden Journey is primarily a simulator - the motion is real, but just tips you around (side to side and lays you back and almost upside down) but it's not fast. The trill of the ride really comes from what is... More

All of universal was great. We got my grandson a wand and he was able to use it around the park. Diagon alley and Hogsmeade rock and are picture worthy.

Go. It's amazing. Drink the frozen Butterbeer. Buy candy in Honeydukes. Enjoy every detail of the Forbidden Journey. Introduce your stomach to your feet on Dragon Challenge. Let a wand choose you at Ollivander's. If you're a fan, this is the holy land. Go.
