Kids just loves this place - and so did we! Invest both in an Express pass and a Dining scheme with free drinks. It's expensive but worth every penny. At times there is still hour long ques, without even longer. And allow plenty of time. I would definitely buy a multi-pass for both parks for at least two days. Buy... More

Brilliant day again. Loved Popeye and Jurassic park. The chocolate factory sells incredible luxury chocolates? Not cheap but so worth it!

Went to UR this time to specifically see the new Kong attraction. VERY disappointing! 20 minutes into the line wait, it was announced that the ride was experiencing problems and the wait time would be longer; 90 minutes later we got to the ride. During that time we wended our way through a labyrinth of narrow passages and caverns. The... More

I hadn't been to Orlando since 2008, we decided to go back this year to celebrate my sisters 18th Birthday. The Harry potter park of the theme park is amazing and the detail makes you feel like you are in one of the movies. These has been a few more new rides been added since we last attended. Hoping to...

Had an awesome time with the wife! We did the park hopper and it was worth it! Getting to ride Hogwarts Express back and forth as many times between both parks made it easy to see that much more. Diagon Alley was awesome, we passed it up the first time, but once we found it, we saw a wonderful hidden... More

Had a great day doing roller coasters and 3D rides in this park. We spend a good 5 hours in here and could do all the rides we wanted to do. The Harry Potter one was the best, the new Hulk ride a good second, all 3D rides great fun (King Kong, Jurassic Park and Spider-Man) and water slide and... More

We had a great day at universal. It was fairly busy but we didn't have to wait too long for the rides. Seuss land was great for our three year old with plenty to keep her entertained. The Harry Potter area is really well done and worth a visit. Food is the usual theme park fare; expensive but still tasty.

This was one of my favourite Parks to visit. It has something for everone. Hogsmead & hogwards was excellect hosting the best ride of all the parks. We had food in the three broomsticks & it was tasty.. Don't let the queues put you off, they get through them quickly. The hulk roller coaster is a must! One of the... More

I love Disney... This place is different. If you want full on madness and fun for all ages this is the spot to go to. It didn't get as busy a Disney and really packs a punch with done mind blowing rides. Having said that it's not ask white knuckle stuff. Great value

Even my reluctant girlfriend loved it. Highlights were King Kong, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park ride, but the others were good two. We went in Sept which was a good time to go and spent 1.50 days between here & universal. The layout works well, as does the Harry Potter train ride to Universal. We'd also recommend getting there early &... More
