    This part of the park is split between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, you require a park to park ticket in order to ride the hogwarts train which connects the 2. One thing to consider the wait times to take the train are much longer going from Universal Studios to Island of Adventure, the video on the train does differ on the 2 voyages. You can tell that Universal invested a lot of money into building this area, its really stunning, the rides are great and the buildings have a phenomenal level of detail. My advice would be to do these areas first as they are by far the busiest parts of both parks. If you have early park admissions through your hotel this is the part of the park that you will have access to. Also of note the few rides that do not offer express lines are located here. Even if you aren't familiar with the books or the movies this is a great experience for young and old.

    Summer holidays at Universal was a lot of fun. We traveled to Orlando in the middle of July 2022. The parks were very busy, and even with early park admission and express passes we still waited in numerous long lines. I think this is just to be expected for this time of year. Express passes certainly made a difference as some rides had over 2 hr wait times without them. That being said we still waited for 30 - 60 min to get on some rides with the express, others we essentially walked onto the ride. I would recommend every use the Universal App as it gives fairly accurate wait times for rides, it makes it easier to plan your day. The Harry Potter rides at Islands of Adventure at the longest wait times, so do those first when the crowds are at their lowest. There are lots of options for food, from sit down meals to quick grab and go options. Really boils down to what you feel like doing. Overall we had a fun time, kids (12 & 10) loved most of the rides.

    The park was pleasant with lots of greenery and shade. Numbers are limited, so although it was busy, it was nothing like as busy as Universal. I found the Genie system very confusing, so didn't bother. We just got there as early as we could, so were able to experience Everest and Khali River rapids within the first 30 minutes. We enjoyed the safari ride and walking through the Asian animal path, including the bats and birds. The lion king show was very good. As the day went on, the waits for rides got busier and we were unable to repeat the Safari ride or do much else, which was disappointing as this was the only Disney park we visited. The rest of our family, who arrived in the afternoon did not get to go on any of the rides we enjoyed.

    great great time although severely annoyed with the rip ride rockit team when me and my brother went on. The man in charge of letting people up the stairs kept screaming at people in the stand by line and proceeded to sent countless express people up but rarely any stand by customers which is appalling especially in the heat that night when we had waited over the wait time due to this. Here’s the worst part guys (didn’t think it could get any worse) the guy in charge of assigning seats shouted at me because I was tired and told me to “move it” and “hurry up man” which really annoyed me and signified that they couldn’t be bothered to be there and to put the cherry on top, they didn’t even check our restraints we just got sent straight on which was shocking and I swear truthfully that this happened and I was furious when I got off. This was my only let down to a fabulous trip staying at the aventura hotel and visiting all 3 parks which were all amazing.

    Love this place for a fun thing to do while in Orlando. Great choice of restaurants and shops. We went at night one day and during the day another day.

    It has absolutely right name; it is really magical. When I was a child, I visited it last time, since now I feel same feelings when I think and go to the park.

    Lake Rianhard is beautiful. They have rocking chairs on a platform overlooking the lake. Great place to relax. They also have a nice walking trail around the lake. If you're lucky, you may see an alligator 🐊

    This Church is close to the Disney resorts. Get there early for parking, the community was welcoming

    Beautiful & visually stunning ride.
    Felt totally immersed in the world of Avatar.
    My absolute favourite ride of the whole holiday
    Worth paying extra if you cannot get a time or the queue is long.
    Not to be missed x

    Beautiful & visually stunning area.
    So true to the film. Rides were absolutely amazing.
    The river journey was perfect & the flight ride was literally out of this world.
    Worth paying genie plus if you have to.

    Good rides, nice layout and some good snack options. Wave pool is great, albeit some people struggle to swim or stay upright in it!

    I’m probably being kind giving it 4 stars but we did have a great day. The rides were excellent and the food was good, despite having to queue.
    It started off badly because the queues for the car park are terrible, then you have to pay $30 to park- awful.
    The actual experience was great. I’ve watched the documentary Blackfish so was determined I’d never visit again. However they’ve changed their focus to include more educational information on sea life and thank fully they don’t swim with orcas or hang onto the dolphins fins anymore. We chatted to trainers and they seemed to love the animals and were very reassuring.
    The other employees however were shocking. The staff in Starbucks were so miserable, I asked other staff members for help around the park and the rudeness was actually quite funny. The worst was in Sesame St land. I asked a worker if the parade would be rescheduled and what time would it happen as it had just been postponed due to bad weather. I’m not exaggerating when I say he shouted at me 3 times, ‘postponed’ and he kept walking away from me. I told him he was rude and he shouted it again before walking off.
    After this incident we decided to leave but spotted two senior looking men from Seaworld. I told them what had happened, had a big talk with them about how the animals are treated ( they were reassuring) and as compensation for the utter rudeness of the member of staff, we got to meet the dolphins which was amazing.
    With all the negative reviews this park will not last. Also the music was loud and totally unnecessary. Come on Seaworld sort yourselves out and listen to people.
