We bought a 2 day pass and got third day free. The passes are good for both parks - Islands of adventure as well as Universal Studios. You really do not need three days for these parks. one day per park is more than enough. What was nice about having waaaaay too much time is that instead of just running from ride to ride to accomplish as much as possible we were able to stroll around and just take in all the details. The attention to detail and the grandeur of things is very impressive! We just loved looking around. Seriously - eye candy. Dr. Suess world - although definitely for kids - I am almost 40 and I just couldn't stop smiling. What colors! What fun!
Of course Harry Potter worl is the main attraction. DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND CHECK OUT THE UNIVERSAL WEBSITE BEFORE YOU GOT TO THE PARKS. THIS IS TRUE FOR DISNEY TOO. They list all the ride closings and let you know when they will reopen. We've been tp harry potter world twice now within two years ad both times the dragon challenge was closed! i thought universal would be willing do do something for us and maybe give us a free entry even for just an hour next year but they said they list all the closings and we should check it out next time.
Eating at the three broomsticks is an absolute MUST. The decor is insane! Its just crazy amazing what they built there! Pictures did not really capture the amazingness (yeah i just made up a word...sue me)
The lines in the morning to get in are insane. we were there totally off season - end of january - and we stood for about 20-30 minutes each day. disney was significantly faster to get into with almost no lines. I dont get why they are not more organized about this...
Just one more quick tip which has nothign to do with universal - if youre looking for great disney stuff and dont want to spend disney world or downtown disney prices - go to walmart. I got amazing things there and had a blast!
