Owner description: 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.

“Best Ride Ever”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I don't like rollercoasters because of the height. But,this ride is for everyone. Amazing. This is the best ride I ever been in whole life. Excellent combination of 3D, animatronics etc.

“Visited twice in 1 trip and going again!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Massive HP fan? Then this is for you! Not a fan? Then still worth a look but you might not understand it all.
I'm not going to spoil this place for anyone just some advice:
Get there first thing in the morning, I went end of season so no queuing but the staff said peak season there are 3 hour queues.
Ollivanders queue will always be long as it is 30 people in at a time where they rein act the HP scene of the wand choosing the wizard. If you have a young child with you push him to the front so he gets picked so you enjoy the experience if not then do not queue for more than 20mins as it lasts less than 5.
2 different types of butter beer here, compared to HP Warner Bro's studios in the UK it's amazing!

“Alright.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The ride is very over rated, we prefer the new Spiderman ride, better effects and alot clearer. Alot of people head to Harry Potter at first so this is an ideal time to get on the other rides in the parks, especially Spiderman.

“Amazing what Universal have done - excellent”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Having been to Universal several times, I was amazed at the transformation to incorporate the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (not that there was anything amiss before, I hasten to add). The scenery is stunning - the only downside is the ride (very good, imaginative & completely one-of-a-kind) made me very queasy and I love coasters. However I did ride it again just to be sure....

“Bland and overpriced.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Even less than my reduced expectations for mass produced theme park food. Overpriced, tasteless and unpleasant environment. Need I say more?
