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.

It's like U're in the movie. Very creative, very real. A little bit of Europe in the middle of America. Would love to go again .

It is like being in the movie. The record are very realistic and the shops are interesting. They have the original restaurants with English Harry Potter menus that are good and reasonably priced. The rides are also very interesting. Escape from Gringot and particularly the Forbidden Journey are musts. Highly recommend it to families with all ages children.

Great area within Universal Studios and fabulous and genius how they link one area of the Harry Potter area of the park to the other . The new ride "escape from Gringotts" is brilliant and open to all ages . All so very clever and expertly done .

The rides and whole staging is brilliant, we especially enjoyed the train, escape from Gringotts and The forbidden Journey ( if you don't like siders you may need to close your eyes for a few moments on this one).

I have worked in the virtual reality business for over three decades and want to commend Universal for their use of high performance solutions in these new attractions.

This is definitely my and my family attraction. Not only the rides are truly a work of art, but the whole ambiance makes you feel like you are actually in the movie.

Amazing rides, and the best bit is you don't mind queuing as you want to take in all the details (talking and moving portraits in the castle that look just like real oil paintings), moving newspaper photos, the bank cashiers in Gringotts, I could go on and on and on about everything here but that would take forever. Go see... More

It is simply brilliant for anyone over 10. The rides are great, the train is brilliant and the set and shops are simply out of this world. When you go try the frozen butterbeer as it is great

The experience here, just like the rest of Universal, is so amazing. Feels like you are truly walking around the book. Must try a frozen butterbeer. So delicious!
