Late November good time to go.

Queues were the shortest we have ever seen. Longest was 15 minutes so we managed to do everything we wanted in 1 day. New King Kong ride definitely worth doing.

Wow! Walking through this place seemed as if you were in a different world and era. They really go all out with the production of atmosphere. I felt like a real life cartoon in the comic themed section. Was waiting for kong to appear at the entrance of Jurassic park ( I know, it's a different story and studio )... More

I love the new Hogwarts Express train that goes into the other park too. If you have a park to park ticket you can get off at Universal Studios. This park has so much for all ages. The entire Harry Potter theme takes up a good portion of the park and it is amazing. The rest of the park has... More

I preferred the attractions at Islands of Adventure more than Universal. Harry Potter area very cool, unfortunately the ride in the castle was down for maintenance, but still got to walk through Hogwarts which was pretty cool on its own. The new King Kong attraction was a blast and really enjoyed Spider-Man and Hulk rides as well. Dudley Doright, Popeye,... More

We love Disney and will always cherish the many wonderful memories that we have made there, but I have to say we will be Universal all of the way from here on out. Less walking, smaller foot print, more adventure rides, less lines, more access to characters, smaller price tag, and so much more. Now that the kids are older,... More

As a yearly premium pass holder we try to get to the park as often as possible. We recently went back to Orlando to give the Sapphire Resort (Loews Property onsite) another chance,,(see my review) This was our first time at Islands of Adventure since they upgraded the HULK and added a few more new fun things to do. I... More

The best park in Orlando. Make sure to get the FastPass if you want to ride all rides in a single day without waiting for more than 10 minutes. Harry Potter is probably the best ride in the park. Make sure to bring some ponchos or covers if you are planning to do water rides (a must, so much fun);... More

Well it was the best park of them all in Orlando. My young boys liked everything from Harry Potter, spider man, transformers, Jurassic park etc. it's a must see attraction in Orlando. If you have boys or older kids they would love this one more than anything else.
