“Great but soooooooo busy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Cracking theme park and a signature reason to visit Orlando.. Easter and the holidays are crazy busy. My favourite time is October.. If you can afford it buy the express pass if you just really want to do the rides... Its expensive but my daughter and I got on every single big ride in both parks in 1 day you would be hard pressed to do 6 big rides without the express passes, and that would result in 7.5 hours of queuing.

“Great fun, scary for the under 9 crowd”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

A terrific assortment of rides and attractions, but our 8 year old, normally afraid of nothing, was really scared by several of the rides/attractions.

“Young and old find fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

My 10 and 12 year old kids prefer it over Disney. The rides appeal to their age group. The food is generally good. The updated Spidey ride was my fave. This was our second time to visit the Harry Potter area. It is awesome!

“Harry Potter!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

This was one of our favourite parks during our stay in Orlando. If you are a Harry Potter fan - you will LOVE it! It was our first stop - did everything in Harry Potter world - went and did all of the other stuff (all Fantastic!) and then went back to Harry Potter World and had dinner at 'The Three Broomsticks' to finish it off nicely!
