We were very excited to see this on our way to the Bahamas, so we booked a couple of nights in Orlando to see this attractions. Visually great, and the rides were amazing but way to short. Something about the experience just fell short. Maybe...More

We are annual passholders at Universal Orlando and get to visit often. The crowds can be daunting, but the Wizarding World is wonderful in its attention to detail. Particularly if you're a Harry Potter fan, you will appreciate the little Easter eggs around the attraction....More

As a fan of Harry potter this was on my must visit list and expectations were high. It did not disappoint. From the first glimpse of diagon alley to riding the Hogwarts express and the brilliantly themed rides in-between, everything was perfect. The gringots ride...More

Really enjoyed this theme park, and Harry’s magical adventure ride where we were flying over Hogwarts and following Harry and his friends in a criddage match was just about the best ride any of us had ever been on. Really well done

Fantastic place. The whole setup has been created in a stunning way. The children can buy a wand where they can go off and cast spells to make various things happen around the park. Diagon Alley was great, I especially liked the Butter Beer 🍺...More

If you’ve never been to either park and won’t be back for awhile, I’d do both parks. Both Harry Potter lands are incredible and the train is pretty great that takes you between the two parks. Take advantage of the single... More
