    Such a fun experience! Just seeing the Hogwarts castle and being in Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley - it was like the Harry Potter films come to life! We had a great time, got a wand and made some magic, tried butter beer, and rode most of the Harry Potter themed rides in both parks. The rides were a little intense, especially if you are prone to motion sickness, but overall we had a great time. The Hogwarts Express is also a fun way to go between the parks.

    SkyCoaster is where it's at!

    Lori and TIffany were fantastic :)
    I feel bad it's taken so long to write a review but 3 months later and it's something my family still talks about on a regular basis.
    We bought the photos and videos and were so grateful that Lori and Tiffany walked with us through the process.
    They made everyone in our group (from 7 yo to 59 yo) feel comfortable about going.
    We will definitely go back !

    Blessed beyond measure to spend such a wonderful Mother’s Day Weekend with my kiddos at such a fun adventure theme park! We had a fantastic weekend! The thrill rides were so much fun and we got to conquer the newest roller coaster Iron Gwazi! So much fun! Busch Gardens has always been one of my favorite theme parks and this time definitely did not disappoint! Thank you Busch Gardens Tampa Bay for making my Mother’s Day weekend so fun and memorable! Everything was perfect!

    I really loved it there in old town, especially the magic show which was very interactive and fun from a very experienced and funny magician that has about 20 years of experience, I would love to see the show again

    Favorite park I visited during my trip. Well-themed, easy to navigate, fun rides. There are lots of nice touches throughout, like the talking fountain, themed (and shaded) ride queues, and complimentary lockers for certain rides. I liked that the Universal app is designed to be an optional helpful tool (such as seeing ride wait times) and not an intrusive presence where you need to check your phone all day.

    Not surprisingly, The Wizarding World was a standout, with Hagrid's probably being the best ride in the park (even with VelociCoaster's rave reviews). Although I went at a "slower" time of year, the park seemed pretty crowded to me. Even so, if you do some advance research/strategizing, the wait times are manageable (for example, don't get on Hagrid's when the wait is 120 minutes first thing in the morning...do the rides with 5 or 10 minute waits and Hagrid's later when the wait drops and other rides get long).

    I do think the food lineup could use more variety of options for quick service. The only thing I was looking forward to trying was frozen butterbeer (which was very expensive and just OK).

    Definitely enjoyed this park and would highly recommend.

    With a focus on nature/natural habitats, Animal Kingdom offers a unique alternative to the usual ride based theme parks of the area. There are some good rides here too (including the absolutely brilliant Avatar Flight of Passage ride) but there is a lot to see and do that is more interesting and informative with themed areas based on unique habitats, a great safari park, nature trails and a range of wildlife to see up close. I would like to have spent longer here and take a more relaxed approach and checking out all the less popular attractions. We were really impressed by the Pandora area, so much detail in the scenery. The tree of life was a central point and we stayed for the evening illuminations with some very clever projections onto the tree itself. A unique alternatives to fireworks (probably advisable in a zoological park).

    I'm siting here reading some of these reviews about people complaining just about anything they can. Some complained about it being $27 dollars to park. Here is a solution, be a florida resident and buy an annual pass. That way parking will be free. Second, some were complaining about if you buy one park ticket but not both, you cant get into the other park.....well no sh*! thats how its supposed to work. Everyone knows that they are two separate parks and you either buy a combo 2 park hopper ticket or one park ticket. Thirdly, to the people complaining about long wait times 1-2 hour wait times, I've never seen the lines that long. The longest I've even seen them was maybe 80 mins or so. Here's an idea, go into the single rider line. Yeah you may be split up but you will all be able to ride the same ride just a lot quicker. Ive been a Florida resident for many years now and we usually get the Universal/IOA passes just about every year. We look at it like if we don't get to do something one day, we can always come back and do it another day. Also we had to leave early 2 Saturdays ago because of gradbash but we didnt cry about it. We had done everything in both parks by that time anyway. You just have to know how to do it right and stop complaining all the time. Cheers to Universal and their great staff and boos to everyone who whines about everything.

    2nd trip to DC, last time we went our daughter was too young for the dolphin encounter. We returned 11 years later and it did not disappoint. Our dolphins were Maraia and Bimini…. Wonderful experience.
    Part of the family did the sea venture which they enjoyed,
    We booked a cabana for the day as it was my daughter’s birthday- worth every penny.

    Food great, service great! Shame about the lightening storms but that couldn’t be helped. We’ll have to return a third time to complete a lap of the lazy river

    Fun spot and old town road was amazing. Lots of rides for the kids and lots to see for the adults. The kids honestly had more fun here than at Disney. Next time, we are skipping Disney and going straight to this place.

    On the first week of May 2022, my family had a two day visit to MK. We enjoyed many rides, enjoyed a few snacks, did some shopping, and marvel with all the charm and attractions of MK.

    The less enjoyable sides of MK were the large crowds, the constant noise and blaring music, and the very hot temperatures we had. We were not quite ready for those. But nevertheless we found a way to reminisce to our old days and felt young again riding; Dumbo, the Magic Carpets, the Carrousel, the Tea Cups, the People Mover, etc. Also we enjoyed once again (previous visits in 2014, 2019), several other favorites if us, The Carrousel of Progress, Philarmagic, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, and Tiki Room.

    We found Genie+ quite useful in MK, I would say, almost essential. Using it was that we comfortably booked Peter Pan, Winnie Poo, and Dumbo. In general we found little new in MK, but the changes in Philarmagic and the Jungle Cruise were noticeable and very enjoyable.

    Our mid-day snacks at Columbia Harbour House were excellent. I particularly liked my Trio Platter. If you go there, try to find a seat at the upper floor, it seems to be always half empty.

    The Cavalcades and/or Parades were just great. All in my family, marvel at the technology and design of the Dragon. All the characters were perfectly represented. MK has very well managed to keep the Magic and Charm alive well. I hope it will be like that for many years to come.

    Overall a good exprience. In January on a 70 degree monday afternoon we almost had the whole place to ourselves. its a small place but set up well to get the most activities for the size of it. the lifeguards were real nice with one giveing out tatoo stickers to the kids. Abit expensive for a small place but staying at he nearby holiday inn gets you discounted tickets.

    Wish some countries had more rides, mexico was updated, but with guardians, chevrolet ride, and ratatouille is worth the ticket alone, the place is just amazing and the new show incredible. Make sure you go to the japanese restaurant

    This was a date night for my husband and I and boy oh boy did we have a good time. We love outdoors activities so this was up our alley. Our favorite was the Ferris Wheel. Ricardo was so sweet he let us stay on the ride longer than normal bc we told him we were just gonna get back in line lol. Thanks Ricky!

    That park was and fun slides were fine but let’s talk about clean wise my gosh…bees everywhere and when I say everywhere I mean everywhere I don’t know if it just looked like that when I came but it was so nasty, you can’t even relax on your chair without getting worried about getting stung by a bee or getting tore up by ants. This water park could definitely use a clean, leaves dirt etc When you enter the lazy river or just any place with water and remember it’s a (water park) honestly very disappointing I definitely suggest you guys fix this problem immediately. I can deal swimming with a couple of leaves but what I saw was bad for a water park. My sister got stung by a bee in this water park as well it’s bee infested that’s the bees water park lol. This park would be better if y’all would fix this problem thanks.
