There are two parks at Universal Orlando - Island of Adventures and Universal Studios Florida. We choose the Island of Adventures mainly for the Harry Potter world, but found there was alot of other fun and adrenaline rides to do at Island of Adventures and it was a full day just to cover this one site.
The Harry Potter area and attractions are just brilliant, the Harry Potter ride is one of the best I've done.
They also have some great rollercoaster types ride and water rides - you will certainly get wet (or take a cheap poncho from home). Be aware that a number of rides dont allow any bags/backpacks, etc, and they provide free lockers at the start of these rides (with a time limit that seems to align to the wait time).
We had also been to Disney World - by comparison Island of Adventures provides the thrill and adrenaline rides, wheres Disney provides more of the magic.
I noticed that Universal provide a day hopper pass between their two sites for an extra $35. We found it took a full day just to enjoy all the rides and attractions at island of Adventures, so unless you are short of time and want to see both pass this can be an expensive upgrade with a great benefit.
