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.

The wizarding world of Harry Potter is great, but far too crowded. They need to somehow reduce the people they let in, you can barley move to see all the different buildings and taking photos is almost impossible. The newest ride 'Escape to Gringotts' is excellent, a bit of a roller coaster with a difference. Well worth the wait. I... More

One of the real highlights of our trip to Universal. Not a giant Harry Potter fan, but this was a great way to get an education and immerse yourself in everything Harry Potter

I LOVED the WWoHP. I was so impressed by the meticulous detailing and effort put into both areas of this magical world. It's definitely worth it to see BOTH sides: Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. The Hogwarts Express between is not just a tram, it is itself a ride, and an absolutely delightful experience! Tips: - Only buy a wand for... More

We're in our 30's and 40's and I can honestly say we loved the Harry Potter section of Universal/Islands, so much so that in total, we went on the rides/Hogwarts Express 9 times. Pls do not skip this if you are in Florida!!!

We visited Universal in January 2016. First time since the Harry Potter attractions have been built. The place was packed which I guess is to be expected. Felt like we were in the movie. The attention to detail was everywhere. Would have been awesome if it weren't so crowded. The only disappointment was the Hogwarts express. Waited in line for... More

It is one of the best attractions in Orlando . It is perfect for the whole family, no matter if you are a Harry Potter fan or not. It has two of the best attractions of Universal. The magic is perfectly recreated. My 8 year old son loves it.

Give yourself plenty of time and enjoy. Don't forget to have the Butter Beer while you're out and about. Lots to wander around and do. Gringotts Bank is a good ride and the interactive displays (activated by special wands you need to buy) are fun for younger kids. The 'steam train' trip between the two parks is worth doing.
