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.

Universal Studios has done a fantastic job with this area.

This area really immerses you into the world of Harry Potter and has been done meticulously. Each shop and distinctive area has been tailored to the books well.

This is such a fun part of Universal and we always spend time there when we visit. Kids love it. Go early or late is best.

This would be an excellent chance to use a pass that speeds up your wait...The ride was good, and did not cause (much) nassea. Was more of a visual experience, then a thrills experience.

My family likes Harry Potter, but we loved The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was like stepping into the movies. The attention to detail was unlike anything I have ever seen out of Disney. We stayed on property to take advantage of the extra hour in Daigon Alley. We walked into the alley and found ourselves alone on the... More

Definitely worth going out of your way just to cast a few spells! This is the best part of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. You truly feel like you're in Hogwarts. And the Hogwarts Express ride from park to park is the best!!! The rides are awesome! And Olivanders is a must!

This is magical. Honestly there is no other way to describe it, you must see it even if you are not a Harry Potter fan. The immense detail into Diagon Alley, Hogsmede, Gringotts and The Leaky Cauldron and other stores are incredible. The moving pictures and goblins are a favourite. Also, try the frozen Butterbeer! Truly an experience for all... More
