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.

This is the original Harry Potter land. It's intricate and impressive. Snow is all over the place despite the fact that it's in Orlando. Hogwarts sits on a hill overlooking Hogsmeade. The stores are small but they're close to scale of what you'd expect in a small fictional wizard village, I think, or at least that's what I've heard. Flight... More

It's amazing!!! The knight bus, the bank, butterbeer, the train ride is great too. I go every other weekend and have lots of fun. Go on the dragon challenge ride. Is the best.

Wow! From the second you walk in its magical. There is no question where you are. We had a spectacular time here. Universal was always an after thought for us when we were at Disney, Harry Potter changes everything! Make sure you get a frozen butterbeer, amazing!

It was worth the entire trip to Orlando but make sure you get the two park pass so that you can enjoy the train ride and all of the other Harry potter attractions. Also, do yourself a favor and plan ahead because there are so many things to see that you might miss them without a plan.

I only just left and can't stop thinking about when I get to go back. As a huge fan of every book and movie it was just a matter of time until I made my way to the Wizarding World in Orlando. Every single detail was so well thought out, it was obvious how much time went into planning and... More

Amazing experience to walk through the pages of a book that have come to life! Dragon Alley, Knockturn Alley, King's Cross Station, Escape From Gringotts ride and numerous stores and shops with familiar names from the book series: Borgin & Burkes, Madam Matkins, Ollivanders, Quality Quidditch, Weasleys Wizard Wheezes, and Wiseacres Wizarding Equipment. You could see something different in the... More

What an amazing place, looks just like the movie! Not much to do other than shop as there are only a handful of rides but I could spend all day looking around and drinking butter beer. I think the only thing that could be better is having all the the staff dress more as wizards and witches and all be... More

This park has so much to see in so little space!! Their attention to detail is on par with the Disney parks, but things are a little too close together to handle the crowds. We traveled as a group of four and found that it was hard to even keep two of us together. This made enjoying the walk very... More
